Could someone double-check a couple of pages for me?

I've run into some (probably elementary) problems with a couple of pages, and just can't figure out what the solution is. Could someone look at these and point out the obvious?
[a href=\"http://www.behindthechurch.com/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.behindthechurch.com/[/a]
The index is taking forever to load. Or at least, it loads but then still shows itself as loading. Very frustrating.
[a href=\"http://www.behindthechurch.com/press/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.behindthechurch.com/press/[/a]
[a href=\"http://www.behindthechurch.com/songspoll/blor_poll.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.behindthechurch.com/songspoll/blor_poll.php[/a]
Both of these show a big negative space before the contents of the center table begin.
I think that's it.

I'd suggest you try to write valid code (which really isn't difficult at all).
One reason why your page loads slowly might be that almost all the images are remotely hosted.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">The DOPCTYPE should be the first tag before the <html> tag.
Next is to deperate design from code which you can do by using CSS! You can style your whole site, be it 10, 100, 1000+ pages you can change how a whole site can look by changing just ONE yes one file! Think how much time you can save but not editing 1000+ or even just 10 pages!
Currently you use the much depreciated <font> tag! This you dont want to use let CSS take on the design of your site. To get to grips with CSS check out the [a href=\"http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_intro.asp\" target=\"_blank\"]w3schools CSS Tutorials[/a].
To make sure you are using valid HTML always chekc your pages over with W3C's HTML Validation Tool [a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]here[/a]. The following links show where your HTML code is not valid!
[a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.behindthechurch.com%2Fpress%2F\" target=\"_blank\"]Click here[/a] to see the results of your Press page which has 22 errors and most probably be easily corrected.

No, that actually makes perfect sense. I've avoided stylesheets for ages, and now I can't imagine why. I'm a glutton for busy work, I suppose.
Thanks! That really helped!
