Guest Co-Host: Judah & The Lion - Episode #361

posted: October 14th, 2016

The roots of this episode harken back to UTR's former parent organization, ReFrame Media.  I had the privilege of hosting Judah & The Lion for a private lunch-time concert and interview back in May 2014.  Things started to explode for the band that summer, and only a few months after playing a lunch concert for 3 dozen people, they were playing on Latenight with David Letterman!  Part of the interview we did that day was to put them …Read More »

Special interview guest Ellie Holcomb - Episode #354

posted: September 2nd, 2016

When the decision was made to end production of the UTR Radio Show (our final show in this format releases on 11-11-16 but we are continuing with our mission including podcasts), we had not yet mapped out our episodes for September, October, & November.  We really wanted to end strong, and have some of the most intriguing interview guests on during our final months of the show.  I knew right away that I wanted to have Ellie Holcomb …Read More »

Special Interview Guest Mike Farris - Episode 344

posted: April 22nd, 2016

This is a special week for me, because without Mike Farris there probably wouldn't be Under The Radar.  In late 2007, I stumbled upon the Memphis-blues and soulful roots artist Mike Farris.  I happened to be putting together a pretty important concert at the time, and I was so won over by Mike's music that we rented out a blues bar in downtown Nashville and booked Mike for the event.  We were launching the new …Read More »

Special Interview Guest Judah & The Lion - Episode #292

posted: February 19th, 2016

In May 2014, I had the privilege of hosting Judah & The Lion in the UTR Studios for a private concert and exclusive interview.  Our special feature episode released in September of that same year, just as their first full length project Kids These Days was released.  Their popularity took off, including touring with Mat Kearney, Ben Rector, and playing on The Late Show with David Letterman.  I found Judah, Nate, and Brian completely down-to-earth and not shy …Read More »

Special Guests: Ginny Owens & Andrew Greer - Episode #318

posted: June 12th, 2015

One of my favorite parts of running Under The Radar are all the incredible musicians I have met that have turned out to be even more incredible people and now friends.  Andrew Greer and Ginny Owens are both on that list - both funny, kind-hearted, ministry-minded, and loving individuals.  It only makes sense that they have teamed up to co-author the new book (published by Thomas Nelson) called Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God, And What Does …Read More »

Interview Guest Ellie Holcomb - Episode #313

posted: May 1st, 2015

It is a very (and I mean VERY) rare occurance to have an indie artist catch fire and break onto a national platform, especially in Christian music.  But even though Ellie was making music for 7 years prior, 2014 was her breakout year, culminating with a GMA Dove Award for "New Artist of the Year."  We are honored that she took time out to share with us about this crazy journey - including the departure …Read More »

Songs from Psalms - Episode #312

posted: April 23rd, 2015

Many times on UTR we have featured episodes of hymn remakes.  But this week, we go to the original hymnbook, the book of Psalms.  We can learn a lot from the Psalms - for example, it is good and edifying to sing praises to the Lord, but singing songs of lament, anguish, confusion, repentence, doubt, and sorrow are a vital expression of the human experience (take note CCM radio!).  We honor this endless well of …Read More »

Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2014 - Episode #299

posted: January 15th, 2015

This is always one of my favorite episodes to produce each and every year. It's a privelege to have 10 panelists that love plumbing the depths of new gourmet music each year.  And since there's 10 of us, it's not a list of just one guy's opinions.  To make this Top 11 list, an artist had to really catch the ear of multiple critics, so it raises the standards on what makes our final Top …Read More »

Judah & The Lion Interview - Episode #292

posted: September 12th, 2014

I'm very excited to share the interview I did with Judah & The Lion on today's show.  They are on the launching pad poised to have their career take off.  Their latest album Kids These Days just released days ago, and it's one of the best releases I've heard in 2014!  This band has a unique trajectory, because they started as a full-on worship band, and have been developing more into a mainstream-friendly Americana outfit... so …Read More »
