Walter A. Maier
Season 6 (1938-1939)
The sixth season of The Lutheran Hour, due to increasing costs and continued economic problems, saw an increase of only four new stations, bringing the number to sixty-six. The amount of mail increased, however, to more than 140,000 letters, from a wide variety of listeners. Much came from professing Christians and shut-ins of all denominations, but some came, as WAM notes from time to time in his sermons, from his detractors. The Lutheran Hour was firmly in the public spotlight.
