8th Anniversary & Radio Finale - Episode #365

posted: November 11th, 2016

I am so thankful for this moment. This show almost ended without warning in 2014, but it's an entirely different feeling to end this chapter on our own terms. And there are all the things we are looking forward to in our future chapters of ministry.  Plus amazing people who brought us to where we are today:  my family, our financial supporters, the Board of Directors, the artist community, our volunteers & interns, and our recent …Read More »

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 »

Best of 2016 So Far, Pt.2 - Episode #352

posted: July 1st, 2016

This episode was NOT supposed to happen (true).  Our summer hiatus was going to be 8 weeks long and begin this week.  But as we scoured and sampled all the great picks from the UTR Critics, we decided to make it a 2-part episode, and shrink our summer break by one week. These episodes are so fun to produce, and it's always great getting input from our Music Panelist friends.  It always results in some new …Read More »

Special Guest Co-Hosts The Vespers - Episode #346

posted: May 20th, 2016

Here's a bit of behind-the-scenes scoop on this episode.  I actually conducted this interview with The Vespers back in 2012, and for various reasons never got a chance to play this section where they picked out the music.  We originally had planned to have an interview with Eric Peters on this week's show, but his album release was delayed until June, so we will be airing that interview special on June 10.  After going through …Read More »

Episode #335 - Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 (Revisited)

posted: April 29th, 2016

If there's one episode that deserves a 2nd spin each year, it's our annual audio countdown of the Top 11 Gourmet Albums of the Year.  Last year's list of critics' picks is an outstanding collection of gourmet music, and might make for a good entry point for someone just discovering the world of well-crafted indie music.  We feature songs from the latest work by The Lone Bellow, Josh Garrels, and Jon Foreman.  Who else released …Read More »

Top Gourmet Songs of 2015, pt. 2 - Episode #337

posted: January 29th, 2016

These critic pick episodes are some of my favorites.  This is another hour just packed to the gills with Grade A well-crafted songs.  Some of these songs might have even been missed by me if it weren't for the discerning ears of our Critics Panel.  Again, I'd like to thank John, Ann, Larry, Kevin, Lindsay, Russ, Matt, & Jen for their help on our panel.  And a few of the songs we play this week …Read More »

The Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 - Episode #335

posted: January 15th, 2016

I look forward to this episode each and every year... it's one of our longest-standing traditions.  This is the 6th consecutive year we have presented the Top 11 Gourmet Albums countdown.  This year was an exceptional year for "gourmet music" releases -- and maybe the first time ever that Sara Groves, Andrew Peterson, and Josh Garrels all released new studio albums in the same year.  It's really fun to do a show in a "countdown" …Read More »

Best Christmas Albums of 2015 - Episode #331

posted: November 30th, 2015

With Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, it's time to start prepping for Christmas! You might love Christmas music as much as we do, but it's becoming harder to find and enjoy the new Advent-themed music that's released each year.  We continue our tradition of sifting through it all to find the diamonds in the rough.  We are counting down our picks for the 6 best Christmas albums of 2015 - with half of the …Read More »

Interview Guest JJ Heller - Episode #324

posted: September 4th, 2015

Ever since getting a pre-release copy of the new JJ Heller album "Sound Of A Living Heart," I have been enjoying the sonic landscape and spiritually centered lyrics.  As CCM Magazine recently said, "Heller’s new batch skillfully encourages" the listener with honest and catchy songs.  I have been a fan of JJ's music for many years, but I can honestly say that I believe "SOALH" is her career best effort to date.  I was thrilled …Read More »

Guest Co-Host Josh Garrels - Episode #229

posted: August 7th, 2015

The week after episode 228, we had Josh Garrels on the show once again - but this time we put him in charge of picking out all the music on UTR - including songs by Wovenhand, Kye Kye, All Sons & Daughters, Gungor, and more.  Plus, Josh shares an acoustic performance of "Bread & Wine" live in the UTR Studios.  Let us know what you think of the episode in the comment section below.  (Dave)

Social Justice Songs - Episode #293

posted: September 19th, 2014

This episode has been in development longer than (possibly) any other episode we've done.  We decided we wanted to do a show on the theme of social justice around 4 years ago, and started picking out songs and collecting interview clips on that topic.  Usually once each year, I have had this episode on our production calendar, and for various reasons - mostly related to our lack of available time to research and seek out …Read More »
