Best Religious Partridge Family

Ricky Sparkman/ACAC

Ricky Sparkman loves Jesus like nobody's business. He makes it everybody's business on an access TV program called Sparks Speaks, which unfortunately does not have a regular time slot (call for schedule). The baby boomer loves the music of the Sixties, too, but has seen fit to change the words around a little to bring the Gospel into brand new territories, with the music of the Beatles and Steppenwolf. So, in between his monologue for the day, his band, comprised of Sparkman on guitar and lead vox and his cute little towhead daughters on bass and drums, belt out the hits with a twist. A Jesus Twist. You go, God!
