St. Michael’s Teen Radio Show #6

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Here is the latest St. Michael’s Teen Radio Show Podcast. Please pardon the thunder and rain in the background (who are we to tell God when to weigh in ;>)

We are still working on a good overall name for the show so feel free to email us with ideas for that at

This show features the wonderful music of Danielle Rose and her CD collection called “Mysteries”. The teens brought this excellent artist and project to my attention.

Danielle Rose takes her name from a rose she recieved from Blessed Mother Theresa of Calcutta. She was told that her music ministry would be a gift which would unfold like that rose. The project is a two CD set which covers songs for each of the 20 mystries of the Rosary.

We barely scratched the surface using only two of the tunes but you can get the whole collection from our friends at

Please do your best to support Danielle Rose in prayer as well as buying her CDs, since she underwent vocal chord surgery earlier this year and is still not (as far as we have heard) performing live again. May God and His holy Mother heal her quickly so she can get back to her beautiful music ministry.

The CD project was recorded at Life Teen Studios in Mesa, Arizona and has the production talents of Matt Mayer, and Tom Booth just to name a few big hitters on the project.

Keep in touch and let us know what you think of these St. Michael’s Teen Radio Shows as they progress.

Peace in Christ through Mary!

St. Michael’s Teen Radio Show #5

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

This is actually show #5 even though I’ve only posted two shows here. This show features the songs of Rick Sutton on Needle Eye Records, and Neal Havener on OATH Records. Both of these guys are great songwriters that I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with. I hope you like the tunes and please support these musicians by visiting their sites and buying their CDs. I linked Neal’s name to his site. I’m still trying to find Rick. If you know him, tell him I’m looking for him!

St. Michael’s Teen Radio Show

Thursday, June 15th, 2006

This is the first podcast of the teens of St. Michael’s youth ministry program. It is actually our fourth attempt at a radio show we are creating for St. Gabriel Radio 1270 AM broadcasting in the Columbus Diocese listening area.

This show features the music of Joe Hand one of the nations best Catholic recording artists and performers. We ask that you check out Joe’s website at and buy his music from there, or from our good friends at www.

I met Joe years ago when He and his wife Jeananne wrote the theme song for an EWTN show I was producing called “Life On The Rock”.

If you get the chance to bring Joe to your church for a conncert you will be amazed at his talent. Jeananne has also co-written a sacramental preparation program for the sacrament of Confirmation you should check that out too. I think she did all the music for it and it is quite good.

This show is under development for review with 1270 AM. we are hoping to get it to the point where it is ready for air on that station. Right now we record a new show each week with the teens from St. Michael’s church where I am the director of Youth ministry, and as soon as I get a BMI and ASCAP license we will be posting many more of the shows to this site.

I hope you all go out and buy Joe Hand’s CDs and bring him to your parish for a concert. You will not find a better quality concert for your teens. I say that with more than 15 years experience! God bless you all and keep checking back for more podcasts here at

Peace in Christ through Mary!

The Bus Trip Home from the March For Life

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006

This podcast is the bus trip home from the March for Life in DC Jan 22 & 23 2006.

In my previous podcast “Offer It Up!”, I was talking about the rough time I was having getting through my week. I mentioned that it could be because God was asking me to offer it up for the conversion of the people who support abortion, maybe even for some of the people who were about to go on the trip with me. I think this podcast will answer the question of whether any hearts were effected by the trip, including my own.

The audio is a bit crude since I was recording it from a bus microphone over a bus PA system with all the road and background noises. I’ve left the audio fairly raw with a few adjustments to the EQ to take out some low end bus rumblings. Other wise this is how it sounds. Just listen more to the messages of the teens rather than my production values on this one! You will like what you hear!

Peace In Christ Through Mary!

Dominic Savio Podcast

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

This is another quick “3 Minutes With A Saint” podcast. It was written by Mr. Thomas Serafin and read by David Rosmarin of St. Michael Church. The fine music was provided by my relatives most of whom have gone on years ago to be with the Lord! I hope you enjoy the production.

Offer It Up!

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

Ok, this podcast is just a brutally honest assessment of my week so far.

I’m thinking that things are tough because I’m heading off to the March For Life in Washington, DC. It seems to me that things are getting harder on the way there.

I know I’m just passing through some difficult situations dealing with work and local heretics, personal turf wars, and home ownership battles, but it still irks me! I may sound like I’m whining, I hope not!

My hope is to share with you the real struggles of a man, born Catholic, and trying to live according to the Church without beating someone (or something) to death! This is all due to stress, incompetence, and all around frailty caused by the leavings of original sin. How about that!?!

Does this sound like an intriguing podcast? Give a listen then email me and tell me what a whiny cuss I’m being! Just pray for me too. That is all I ask!

God is good! All the time! I will praise Him in the good times and in the bad times as well!

Your faithful podcasting host,

Michael A. Barone

Warm & Fuzzy? Or Worn & Fuzzy!

Wednesday, December 7th, 2005

This podcast is just a thought or two about life, hope, and getting a little distracted. Welcome to my rambling thought process and its “perilous search for a home!” Just a little fun, hopefully with some useful insight. Enjoy!

Pope John Paul II Papal Blessing

Sunday, April 3rd, 2005

This podcast is my remembrance of a special moment when Pope John Paul II gave me a blessing which I was in turn able to share with the whole world. If you would like the blessing too just listen to the podcast and then click on Pope’s Blessing to see the video of his blessing for you. May God Bless this great and Holy man. May he rest in peace and intercede for us!

Pray for the Pope

Friday, April 1st, 2005

What more can be said? Pray for John Paul II (The Great!) as he is passing from this life to the next. How sad for us, but how wonderful for him. He is going to where we will all hopefully follow one day. Many of us owe our lives to him and to his teachings. God has richly blessed us with this man and his pontificate. May his final hours bring him great joy as he is met by the Blessed Virgin Mary and brought into the very gates opened by Jesus Christ through His death and resurrection. As He meets God the Father face to face and is given eternal life. Let us pray that we can live our lives out as he did giving 100% to Christ through Mary!
Hail Mary…
Our Father…
Glory be…
Amen! Alleluia! Praise God!
