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 »

Episode #335 - Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 (Revisited)

posted: April 29th, 2016

If there's one episode that deserves a 2nd spin each year, it's our annual audio countdown of the Top 11 Gourmet Albums of the Year.  Last year's list of critics' picks is an outstanding collection of gourmet music, and might make for a good entry point for someone just discovering the world of well-crafted indie music.  We feature songs from the latest work by The Lone Bellow, Josh Garrels, and Jon Foreman.  Who else released …Read More »

The Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2015 - Episode #335

posted: January 15th, 2016

I look forward to this episode each and every year... it's one of our longest-standing traditions.  This is the 6th consecutive year we have presented the Top 11 Gourmet Albums countdown.  This year was an exceptional year for "gourmet music" releases -- and maybe the first time ever that Sara Groves, Andrew Peterson, and Josh Garrels all released new studio albums in the same year.  It's really fun to do a show in a "countdown" …Read More »

Christmas Carol Remakes - Episode #334

posted: December 18th, 2015

To be honest, this episode was not supposed to happen.  We plan out our episode themes and recording schedule weeks (sometimes months) in advance, and we had scheduled to air a Christmas rerun from our archives.  But I was swept up into the holiday spirit as I dug into some of UTR's fan-favorite artists renditions of Christmas classics.  So we put in a bit of extra work, but really excited to have a brand new …Read More »

Critics’ Picks - Best Albums of 2015 (so far) - Episode #320

posted: June 26th, 2015

Whenever we get the input of our Critics Panel, it usually results in a stellar episode.  They have worked their magic again, as they share some of the best albums to be released in the first half of 2015.  All albums by Christian songwriters released between 12/1/14 and 6/1/15 were considered.  I hadn't really "discovered" the Trent Dabbs or Riki Michele albums until this episode - and I always find some A+ music thanks to …Read More »

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 »

We Are Back! - Episode #298

posted: January 8th, 2015

After a three month hiatus, it is SO good to be back with brand new episodes. In fact, there was a moment when I wondered if we would ever present another new episode of UTR.  I am so grateful for the help and support of so many, including dozens of financial backers who were first-responders to our need. I had some time to think, "What type of show should we do for our grand return to the …Read More »
