Some random stuff for you this week!

**I have no details whatsoever for this bit of audio, other than the fact it appeared on a tape marked “14 station crosses”. Playing the crosses bit references vocal tracks for 2SM’s “The Stations Of The Cross” easter program, but playing on after its conclusion reveals this audio marked on the box as “national action”. I’m unable to find out if this was ever broadcast.
