Craig Ford on Money Wise Radio Interview

Print Friendly

Someone once said, “Better late than never.”

More on that in a bit.

Each day, the folks at Compass do a radio show called Money Wise.  Money Wise is a radio show (that you can access online too) that covers topics related to Christian finance. The show is put together by Steve Moore and Howard Dayton.  Steve Moore has a long history with Christian radio.  In fact, he co-hosted a radio show with Larry Burkett.  Of course, if you are familiar with Christian finances, you’ve probably heard of Howard Dayton.  Howard and Larry were some of the great pioneers in the field of Christian finances.

It’s a very good show, and I recommend you check it out.

If I had one thing I could change about the show, it would be the ability to download episodes.  I love to listen to music when I run, so that is obviously a good way to catch up on my radio.  Perhaps there is a way to do that, and I’m just not smart enough to figure it out!

Ok.  Coming back to the “better late than never” statement above.

Back in August, I did an interview with Steve Moore and Howard Dayton on the Money Wise radio show.  The show aired on September 2nd, 2011.

Anyway, I just listened to it (October 1st, 2011) for the first time.  I think the interview would be interesting for those of you who are new readers at MH4C, those of you who are people who want to know a little more about my personal story and ministry here in Papua New Guinea, and those of you who are related to me.  :)

To listen to the show, click here and play the September 2nd show.

I’ve only ever done one other radio interview (a radio show in San Diego), so please be patient if it’s not the best radio you’ve ever heard.

However, I’ve got to say I was impressed with how everything turned out. (Is that too proud to post?)

I have a high voice, and when I listen to recordings of my own voice, I sometimes feel conscientious about it.  Anyway, when I listened to the show, at least I thought it sounded like me (not a me who stole my voice and raised it two octaves).  I still have a high voice, but at least you can be sure it is a man who is being interviewed.  After saying that, I bet all of you will rush over to see how high of a voice I really have.

Sure, I may have mixed up a few words like saying ‘temporal’ when I meant ‘eternal’, but who’s counting, right?

Best of all, I only counted one ‘um’.  I have this bad habit of ‘umming’ while I give my mind time to process information.  That’s why I like writing.  I can ‘um’ all I want, and you don’t have to know about it.  The radio is less forgiving.

I’m sure the interview won’t blow you out of the water, but if you want to learn a little more background about me or our work in Papua New Guinea, check it out here.

A special thanks for Steve Moore and the folks at Money Wise for reaching out and doing the interview.

P.S. I actually had fun doing the show!  Maybe there will be the MH4C Radio Show sometime in the future ?????

    Hey, Craig! I checked it out. I don’t think you have a high voice. I think you may be talking about the resonance of your voice. And it sounds fine to me. :) I could catch bits of your Canadian accent, too. :)

    It was good to hear your voice, and I thought you did a great job in the interview. It was good to learn a little more about you.

    Mr. Ford, I subscribe to the Money Wise podcast via iTunes and catch up on the radio shows that way on my iPod while I exercise. That could be a way you can download the episodes. It’s in the iTunes directory under Compass >> Money Wise. I hope this helps!
