Special Guest Andrew Peterson - Episode #356

posted: September 16th, 2016

One of the main reasons why UTR exists at all is that in 2007 I "rediscovered" the music of Andrew Peterson, and it turned out to be the most encouraging spiritual balm for my soul that year. Most of my friends, family, and co-workers had never heard of him, and a flame had been lit with a desire to share this soul-connection music with others.  First, it resulted in hosting Andrew for 2 concerts.  Soon after, …Read More »

The Gray Havens Pick All The Music - Episode #304

posted: August 19th, 2016

This is the final week of our 2016 summer hiatus.  The last few weeks we have dipped back 4-5 years into the archives, and on this show we only go back 1.5 years.  Episode 304 originally aired in February 2015 and featured The Gray Havens taking over the UTR controls, including picking out all the music.  Little known fact... UTR was the place for The Gray Havens' very first radio interview!  They've been a sweet …Read More »

Best of 2016 So Far, Pt.1 - Episode #351

posted: June 24th, 2016

I always love the episodes that feature picks from our Critics Panel - you know the music is going to be stellar.  This is once again true with this jam-packed hour of music.  In fact, we originally only planned on airing one "Best of 2016A" episode, but there were so many stellar picks that we allowed it to spill into two full episodes.  Not only to we get to hear perennial favorites like Andy Gullahorn …Read More »

Interview guest Audrey Assad - Episode #339

posted: March 4th, 2016

We recently did a poll on Twitter on what artist our followers would most like us to interview.  The highest vote-getter was Audrey Assad.  She's an artist I have admired and appreciated since her debut in 2010.  Her choice to depart from her record label and become an independent artist (among other social and political stances) has only made her a more intriguing person in my eyes.  It was a privilege to finally interview her …Read More »

Special interview guest Sara Groves - Episode #328

posted: November 13th, 2015

We couldn't return with a bigger bang after a 5-week hiatus than by welcoming the female artist we have played the most in the history of UTR, Sara Groves.  I recorded this interview in July 2014 at Escape To The Lake, and she had just finished recording her latest album "Floodplain," which just released on 11/6/15.  It was great to explore some of the unique process that went into the making of this new CD. …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)

The Gray Havens Take Over - Episode #304

posted: February 20th, 2015

I'll let you in on a little secret.  I actually recorded this interview the first time I met Dave & Licia Radford in person, in March 2013.  They came to the UTR studios shortly after the release of their debut EP "Where Eyes Don't Go." Little did I know this was one of their first professional interviews AND their lunchtime concert that day was one of their first public performances as a duo.  But you …Read More »
