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 »

So this means that, to the artist, that song is special in some way - whether it be theme, craftsmanship, depth, or melodic acheivement.  So as we play all title cuts this week, you can reflect on the fact that for various reasons, these are important enough songs to the artists, that their album …Read More »
