Special interview guest Ellie Holcomb - Episode #354 - September 2nd, 2016

Special interview guest Ellie Holcomb - Episode #354

When the decision was made to end production of the UTR Radio Show (our final show in this format releases on 11-11-16 but we are continuing with our mission including podcasts), we had not yet mapped out our episodes for September, October, & November.  We really wanted to end strong, and have some of the most intriguing interview guests on during our final months of the show.  I knew right away that I wanted to have Ellie Holcomb on the show once again.  She was the guest on episode #313 in May 2015, and really connected well with UTR listeners.  Our listeners always do a good job of making quality requests too -- including some new 2016 tracks by Jason Gray, Jenny & Tyler, and Rivers & Robots.  Let us know if you enjoyed the show [comment below].  (Dave)

Audio Recap of Escape To The Lake 2016 - Episode #353 - August 26th, 2016

Audio Recap of Escape To The Lake 2016 - Episode #353

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 the music is live performances from this year's ETTL Main Stage, including Mike Farris, Joy Ike, Eric Peters, Jess Ray, Sara Groves, among others. We also feature audio testimonies from attendees and artists.  We hope this recap allows you to experience a taste of this incredible community... and hopefully it makes you excited to plan and join us for ETTL 2017!  (Dave)

The Gray Havens Pick All The Music - Episode #304 - August 19th, 2016

The Gray Havens Pick All The Music - Episode #304

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 couple and one of our favorite bands over the last few years.  (Dave)

Special Guest The Farewell Drifters - Episode #154 - August 12th, 2016

Special Guest The Farewell Drifters - Episode #154

I discovered the amazing music of The Farewell Drifters at Cornerstone 2010 and it was love at first listen.  A year later I had the pleasure of hosting them for a private concert and interview in the UTR Studios.  This interview episode originally aired in October of 2011 - not only featuring music and conversation with TFD, but also some creative songs by Brooke Waggoner, Sufjan Stevens, Mindy Smith, and others.  (Dave)

All International Artists - Episode #140 - August 5th, 2016

All International Artists - Episode #140

This episode originally aired in July of 2011, and shows that gourmet music is found around the globe.  We love celebrating these voices from different countries... all speaking the universal language of music -- very well-crafted music at that.  Of all the wonderful songs we played on this episode, I will admit that there is one that still to this day really stands out for me.  I had just discovered the music of The Arrows prior to producing this episode, and the song "In The Words of Satan" would be on a short list of the BEST songs we have *ever* played on the history of the show.  We had a LOT of fan feedback to confirm that this song powerfully connects with listeners.  If you missed this show 5 years ago (likely most of you did), enjoy this revisit, and have a fantastic musical trek around the globe.  (Dave)

All Radar Rewinds with guest Randy Stonehill - Episode #256 - July 29th, 2016

All Radar Rewinds with guest Randy Stonehill - Episode #256

From Day #1 of UTR, our most consistent tradition has been the Radar Rewind.  Every single episode in 350+ shows has included at least one homage to the gourmet music of yesteryear.  On this show (originally from 11/15/13), we honor the Radar Rewind for the whole hour, including some gems from The Lost Dogs, The Waiting, and Sixpence None The Richer.  Plus we feature an exclusive interview with CCM legend and GMA Hall of Famer Randy Stonehill.  What are some of your favorite Radar Rewind gems from 15+ years ago?  (Dave)
