Thank you. It's an interesting piece of American TV Evangelism history!
I hadn't intended to say any more on this topic, but due to the interesting subject matter, I thought I'd add a couple more tidbits. When this large round church opened in 1959, it was astounding for its audacity and opulence. I remember a few things clearly from back then. We attended as a family, and at one point my brother tried to get up to go use the restroom, and the usher made him sit back down. I don't recall what the final resolution of that was. One thing that Humbard did that I never saw elsewhere was when the money collection was finished, they declared that it wasn't enough, and passed the collection plates again. The most dramatic thing was the large stage that rose to the main stage level, and could be lowered into the basement, allowing large scenes to be brought up intact, ready to go. If you're familiar with Dante's Inferno, they put a short version of that on one day. Very impressive to young minds.
