Why "The Clu Crew"?

The ministry of UNSHACKLED wants to reach everyone with the gospel message,  which is what we've been striving to do since 1950. But some of our radio drama content is too mature for young listeners. So we decided to create a new program specifically with younger listeners in mind!
Our goal is to produce exciting, dynamic, and thought-provoking content that upholds -- and even teaches --  Biblical values.
We hope this can be something both children and families enjoy together...and learn from!
