Gospel Song – Operator, Information, Give Me Jesus on the Line

Gospel Song – Operator, Information, Give Me Jesus On the Line.

This gospel song is like a two-stage rocket. Sister Wynona Carr wrote a song in 1954, “Operator, Give me Jesus on the Phone.” And then in 1959 William Spivery of the gospel group The Friendly Brothers took that song and adapted it into what we hear today on so many stages, in so many churches. Unfortunately, Spivery and his group have largely gone unnoticed through the years, even though their song has become a gospel standard.
