Songs in the Queue, Pt. 2 - Episode #360

posted: October 11th, 2016

We used to release mid-week bonus podcast episodes fairly regularly... at least 5 or more each year.  But that tradition ended in 2014 when UTR became an independent ministry.  We had to scale back production some, so we just focused on our regular weekly podcast.  But now, for the first time in 2 years, we bring you a bonus mid-week podcast of UTR, featuring more songs that we've been "saving" for a future show... and now …Read More »

Sarah Masen Interview - Episode #290

posted: August 29th, 2014

Meeting Sarah Masen was a pure delight. She is a sweet soul with very thoughtful things to share from her heart. Her latest batch of songs from "The Trying Mark" are (in classic Sarah style) poetic and layered. We were also delighted that she could be a part of Escape To The Lake 2014.  She shares some personal stories, including when she found out her son Sam was diagnosed with autism.  Having a special needs …Read More »
