We return with brand new episodes, starting with an insider's audio journal to UTR's flagship event and the best music gathering of the summer, Escape To The Lake 2016.  Both music makers and music appreciators showed up in Cedar Lake, IN, August 7-11 to experience spiritual, emotional, & musical refreshment like you can't find anywhere else.  On this week's episode, we do something we've never done before on our ETTL recap episodes -- all of …Read More »

Preview of Escape To The Lake 2016 - Episode #343

posted: April 15th, 2016

Little know fact: On our production schedule, this week was supposed to be a rerun.  Last month the idea dawned on me to do a show previewing some of the amazing artists coming to ETTL 2016, something that we've never really done in the past.  One of the self-indulgent reasons why I wanted to produce this show was to feature a new (1-wk-old) song from The Gray Havens' new stellar album Ghost of a King, as …Read More »

Interview guest Jenny & Tyler - Episode #338

posted: February 5th, 2016

We first played Jenny & Tyler on UTR about 5 years ago, in January of 2011.  Since then, they've become one of our most interviewed and most played artists on UTR!  You may have heard that J&T actually recorded and completed their latest record Of This I'm Sure a year or two before it was actually released (as they negotiated their very first recording contract with Residence Music).  Well, in that same vein, we actually recorded this …Read More »

Thanksgiving Special - Episode #330

posted: November 25th, 2015

In this episode, I agree with Joy Ike that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, because it's one of the few non-commercial holidays left.  It's great to have this soul check-up built into the calendar every November where we can reflect on the blessings of God in our lives.  We love celebrating this holiday with some gourmet music!  This is the 5th time we've produced a Thanksgiving Special, so feel free to peruse our …Read More »

Escape To The Lake 2015 Audio Recap - Episode #322

posted: August 21st, 2015

This last July 1-5, UTR put on the gourmet music event of the summer, Escape To The Lake 2015.  It was a career-highlight experience for me, and I am especially moved to hear how many artists and attendees are still buzzing about what took place.  While it's difficult to encapsulate it all, we want to at least present a taste of the experience, especially for folks who couldn't be there in person.  So this week's episode shares …Read More »

Interview Guest Justin McRoberts - Episode #308

posted: March 20th, 2015

There's an "Escape To The Lake" theme woven into the fabric of this episode.  This interview with Justin was actually recorded in a quiet corner at last year's ETTL.  Since he's coming back again this year, we are using the opportunity to share some of the music of other artists who will be at ETTL 2015.  Plus Justin is a great guy to talk to - funny, insightful, and willing to shoot straight.  And it's …Read More »
