ABOUT THIS PROGRAM

 

This special Easter holiday recording, “A Prophecy Fulfilled,” was conceived, created, and was produced by Bob Pratt.

At the time ‘A Prophesy Fulfilled’ first aired in 1975, WBFG was Detroit’s foremost premiere station known for it’s all-religious broadcasting format. The call letters WBFG was also the station’s heralded acronym as well. The calls represented their daily religious radio content heard 24/7 on the FM side, “We’re Broadcasting For God.”
