Connecting the past with the present, Wilberg told of the program's first broadcast back in 1929, when the KSL Radio crew ran a wire from its broadcasting station more than a block away to the tabernacle to carry the
program. The choir's 19-year-old announcer, Ted Kimball, mounted a stepladder to access the single microphone that carried the broadcast.
"Since then, over 4,300 episodes have been aired," Wilberg said, adding that with the YouTube venture, audiences can now access the program whenever they like anytime and anywhere.
"We'll upload new episodes each week, and additionally, new episodes will be archived here as well," he said.
The new YouTube channel can be accessed at www.youtube.com/MormonTabChoir.
