Stories Behind The Songs, Pt. 1 - Episode #347

posted: May 27th, 2016

I have been personally excited for this episode for quite some time. It takes a lot of extra time and effort to put together shows like these, where we have to dig through dozens of artist interviews in our archives.  I believe that the end result is definitely worth it.  I had a lightbulb moment in the pre-production stage, which is, no other podcast really has the wealth of high quality artist interviews to be …Read More »

Valentines Special - Episode #303

posted: February 12th, 2016

We originally aired this episode exactly one year ago, and it features some of the best love songs penned by Christian songwriters.  I find it unfortunate that some Christians turn their nose up at love songs because they think Christians should be writing songs about God all the time. I believe that perspective is very short-sighted concerning what is "about God."  Do Christians experience falling in love, going through a break-up, frustrations in parenthood, great …Read More »

Some of 2015’s Song Gems - Episode #332

posted: January 8th, 2016

As I thought about what show to plug into this week, which is the final week of our holiday haitus, I had to look no further than the show that released on 12/4/15, which very appropriately was an episode all about appreciating some of the amazing gourmet music that came our way in the year 2015.  That will lead us perfectly into next week, when we return with an all-new episode, and we countdown the …Read More »

Gems From 2015 - Episode #332

posted: December 4th, 2015

This year has been an incredible one for the world of gourmet music.  It's not every year that you get a new studio project by Andrew Peterson, Josh Garrels, Sara Groves, Jenny & Tyler, JJ Heller, Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors, and The Vespers - all in the same year.  And that only scratches the surface.  We will still be compiling votes from our UTR Panel of Critics to countdown the Top 11 Gourmet Albums …Read More »

Stories Behind The Songs - Episode #146

posted: July 24th, 2015

These "story" episodes are some of my favorites, and I have plans to do 2 new versions of this later this year. There is something about the power of story that can help you become an even more active listener, and in turn often allows your soul to glean more from the song.  I hope that happens for you!  (Dave)

Valentines Special - Episode #303

posted: February 13th, 2015

In the 1980's, some of the more fundamental evangelicals listened to Christian music of that day and counted the JPMs... the "Jesus Per Minutes." They would deem just how "Christian" a song was by the number of mentions God, Savior, Jesus, Lord got in a song.  It was probably done with good intentions, like wanting the music one hears to be more devotional or overtly evangelistic.  However, there were some severe consequences.  Of course artists …Read More »
