Scan Remixed

Scan was a nationally syndicated radio program aired in the U.S. and around the world from 1975 to 1991. This program features first person stories of individuals who share their lived out wisdom. Scan in its original broadcast form used progressive rock music to amplify and support the stories. However, due to the expense of music licensing, these stories have been remixed using copyright free music.
The stories featured on Scan Remixed point to God’s activity in the world, creating hope, health, healing, justice, peace and growth. God’s work in our lives is often hidden and when we begin to remember those moments of insight, healing and growth, we can see God at work. Scan Remixed, like NPR’s “Story Corp” and “This American Life”, uses first person narrative to carry the content and the listener can listen for those themes that illuminate God’s activity.
