Charles McPheeters was a former nightclub entertainer who converted to Christianity in 1965 and, with his wife Judy, became a leader in the emerging Jesus People Movement.  They led a multi-faceted street ministry called The Holy Ghost Repair Service, later known as the Oasis of Hollywood.  Charles McPheeters album entitled “Faces” is considered a Christian music classic. He died of cancer in 1982 at the age of 38. His commitment to take the Gospel to addicts, prostitutes, and street people is a legacy that continues today in the ongoing work of Charles’ widow Judy, and her husband, Ron Radachy at the Oasis of Hollywood.  The collection includes audio recordings and periodicals documenting the ministry of Charles McPheeters, Ron Radachy, and Judy McPheeters.

The bulk of the collection covers the 1970s and 1980s. The principal focus of the collection is the audio recordings of Charles McPheeters. Formats in the collection are diverse. They include reel-to-reel tapes of various sizes, cassette tapes, videotapes, records, CDs, and periodicals.
