Songs In The Queue, Pt.1 - Episode #359

posted: October 7th, 2016

Music festivals. 5-course meals. Fireworks shows. With many things in life, sometimes the best is saved for last. Since we rarely repeat a song on UTR, we are careful about what we play and when we play it. Sometimes we want to play the best song(s) by that artist right away.  In the case of today's show, sometimes a song WOWed us so much, that we decided to "save" it for a rainy day down …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 »

Christmas from UTR’s Early Days - Episode #55

posted: December 24th, 2015

One of the joys I have this time of year is getting to relive the magic of the holidays through the eyes of my 5 kids -- from my 12-yr-old watching "Little Women" for the first time to my 2-yr-old singing "Away in the Manger" with the motions. And Christmas is a time for all of us to keep the kid inside alive. I love that I can still see the wonder on my kids' …Read More »

Songs of Redemption - Episode #83

posted: August 14th, 2015

This was definitely one of my favorite episodes from our 2nd year on the air.  One of the songs that really (still) stands out to me is "I Believe" by Jonny Lang.  Oddly enough, I discovered that song by seeing him perform it (alongside a full gospel choir) on The Tonight Show.  It gave me goosebumps to hear such a Christ-centered song on network TV.  All-in-all, I hope these redemption-filled songs give you encouragement and hope!  (Dave)

Listener Requests - Episode #305

posted: February 27th, 2015

You listeners always seem to do a terrific job when called upon to pick the music.  This episode is no exception.  One of my favorite aspects is when we find out about new talent that we weren't aware of.  I'm excited that there are FOUR first time debut artists on UTR this week.  Plus you can't go wrong with some of our all-time favorite artists, like Josh Garrels, The Vespers, Andrew Osenga, and Jason Gray. …Read More »

Best Songs of 2014, pt.2 - Episode #302

posted: February 6th, 2015

Getting the annual pulse of the UTR Critics is a fun experience for me personally.  Not only does each member have great taste in music, but songs connect with them for a variety of reasons.  One critic picked a Ginny Owens song because it was emotional.  One picked a Chris Taylor song because of the unique style. And one picked a track by The Choir because of the poignant lyrical content.  Whenever we pool top …Read More »

Live Exclusives - Episode #300

posted: January 23rd, 2015

I love celebrating milestones.  And we almost never made it to show 300, so this is worth a hearty celebration indeed.  We have played live tracks before, but mostly just from the studios at our old location.  But for this show, I wanted to feature live tracks from a variety of UTR events.  So you'll hear some songs from the old studios, some from the Escape To The Lake main stage, some from the 2014 …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 »

Escape to the Lake 2014 Recap - Episode #285

posted: August 1st, 2014

While it's impossible to sum up Escape To The Lake in a 1-hour show, it's fun to produce an overview episode each year.  The interview clips are substantial - I love what Micah Dalton said about how some artists caught in the in-between, not fully embraced by the club scene and not fully embraced by the church scene, can find a home at ETTL.  And I also love how Justin McRoberts took time to praise …Read More »
