I Just Wanna Talk about Jesus (video)

For a video blast from the past, try this one on for size. This is the Good News Circle (including me) performing "I Just Wanna Talk about Jesus" at the West Texas Billy Graham Crusade in Lubbock, TX, 1975 (thanks to Carl Whitenack and family for this recording).
