Former Thomas Road mainstay Doug Oldham died today at University of Virginia hospital, where he had been awaiting surgery.
Oldham served two tours of duty at Thomas Road; one in the early Seventies, when he was at his peak as a gospel singer, and again in the late Eighties, when he returned to the ministry from PTL/Heritage USA as part of the aftermath of the Bakker scandal.
Wow. There isn’t much archival footage of Jerry on YouTube, but there is this one gem from one of the low points in the PTL saga. Features appearances by Derek Floyd and Doug Oldham, along with some vintage late-Eighties crowd shots.
