Leo de Coninek, and Fr. P. Eugene Murphy, the originator of the famous Sacred Heart programme. the 143 minutes' religious feature on the American radio, now carried by 513 stations,. totalling 1.539 broadcasts per week. This programme can be heard on Vatican Radio every Friday at 7.15 (Summer 7 ime) on 31.06 and 19.87 metres wavelength.
