Sketch Erickson ‎– Sketch Sounds Off On Trends In Today’s ‘Pop’ Culture

May 12, 2014

FourMost Productions ‎– FM-6919CS – 196?

“Sketch Erickson finds himself a target on the taut, thin line between two generations. His programs, which examine trends in our so-called “pop culture”, pull no punches with either group. 
Sketch is a leading advertising artist who left that career to conduct his crusade for decency among teens. He’s the father of four children, three of whom are teens. As and artist he studied in Europe and Chicago and served as an art director for several leading publishers. He is also a musician who has directed both instrumental and choral groups.”

I’ve got tons of religious records. I’ve also got tons of spoken word religious records – so many, in fact, that I’ve had to break them into sections to separate the end-of-the-world prophecy LPs from the ‘what will happen when the godless commie liberals take over’ LPs from the ‘pastors talking to teens about sex, drugs and rock and roll’ LPs.
This one, from what I am guessing is the late 60s is one of the latter. I’ve got lots of these ones, too. There was something about the track listing on the back that drew me in. Sketch is more of the school of the ‘hep’ and ‘with it’ pastor who can ‘groove’ with today’s young generation. He doesn’t come across as openly judgemental about music, movies and pop trends but he is.

The main selling point for those of us with the constitution to listen to this hellfire and brimstone crap is the goofy skits and sketches (no pun intended) that serve to illustrate Erickson’s points about the slippery slope towards Satan. There are some hilarious attempts at approximating groovy hippy music done by a souless Christian folk group, complete with some awful guitar freakouts. It’s pretty funny.
