Stories Behind The Songs, Pt. 2 - Episode #348

posted: June 3rd, 2016

These episodes are so epic, it spills into two parts.  Story is a powerful tool, and usually causes one to lean into something or someone.  These in-depth stories behind the songs help us engage more thoughtfully with the art and get to know the hearts of the artists.  No other podcast or radio show has this amount of valuable access to high-caliber independent musicians!  Kudos to Kristian Black for the extra efforts it took as …Read More »

7 Year Flashback - Episode #16

posted: February 26th, 2016

Take a ride down memory lane and listen to when UTR was just a 3-month-old newborn radio show!  It's fun to see how things have changed ... and how things haven't.  Even 7 years ago you can hear that we were passionate about connecting listeners to well-crafted music.  It's also in Episode #16 that we play the music of Jeremy Casella for the first time!  ((Dave))

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 »

Interview Guest Josh Garrels - Episode #228

posted: July 31st, 2015

We've been playing Josh's music before it was "cool" to play Josh's music.  In fact, a lot of people have told us that UTR was the place they discovered Josh Garrels.  We're grateful for that because we believe in the art he creates.  We were honored to have Josh in the UTR Studios right at the point when his popularity sky-rocketed.  He's a gracious person that has a unique, honest perspective... one that has helped …Read More »

Fathers’ Day Special - Episode #319

posted: June 19th, 2015

Sometimes when thinking about a musical ode to dads, folks have a hard time thinking beyond "Butterfly Kisses" or some other tear-jerker.  But we wanted to add our "gourmet music" voice into the celebration.  Besides great music from Brandon Heath, Julie Lee, Balla Dear, and JJ Heller (among others), we also hear about personal reflections on the value of fatherhood from singer-songwriters Christopher Williams and Ben Shive.  Hope this adds a nice soundtrack to your holiday weekend!  (Dave)

In this third week of Interview Month, I'm happy to have Matt Brouwer join us - not just as a guest, but as our co-host of the show.  Matt has been in the music biz for about 15 years, and continues to be one of the more layered and interesting songwriter in the acoustic-pop world.  But his mission this week is to handle UTR's playlist - which he did a stellar job - including songs …Read More »
