Martha Reed Garvin has been a professional musician for over thirty years, singing and playing for conventions, weddings and memorial services in and around the Chicago land area.When Martha Sings, (host of the radio and television program, MUSICAL MEMORIES) people listen all around the world.  Martha performs hymns and traditional gospel music that cynics may consider passe. However, she says that she started the program to prove those doubters wrong.

“In 1988 when our youngest was a senior in high school”, Martha says, “I began to realize that young people like my own five children really did’t know these blessed old songs.  That seemed like a real shame because the best of these hymns are timeless. They’ve endured because they bring a lot of encouragement and comfort to people.” Thus the start of MUSICAL MEMORIES.
