A Public Service Announcement from the Presbyterian Church featuring interviews and music from Badfinger. This single was produced in 1979 and sent to religious radio stations. This record is 4:57 long and contains snippets of several of their Apple hits as well as tracks from their latest release "Airwaves" as well as interviews with Tommy Evans and Joey Molland. The record tells the story of Badfinger's troubles and hints at a bright future with the new release, all with a slightly religious overtone. The disc closes with an excerpt of "Lost Inside Your Love".
