FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC is a listener supported radio ministry, FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC is a listener supported radio ministry…. Ooooops, did I type that line twice?
Well, why not go the the playlist and give a listen to Episode #187 and then if you like it…send in support to help produce Episode #188? We’d appreciate your help.
On this episode we’re going to take a listen to veteran Christian musicians singing cover versions of songs from their peers. You’ll hear from the likes of Bryan Duncan, Russ Taff, Glad and The Imperials. Also included are several Solid Rock Records alumni including Daniel Amos, Mark Heard, Randy Stonehill and to start off the show is the founder of the label and grandfather of Jesus Music the late great Larry Norman.
Due to the generous support from two listeners this month, Bob Henninger and Steven Weyhrich, we have posted a new show!
On this episode we have with us a special friend, David Huff co-founder of the group David and the Giants.
David & the Giants were true pioneers in the early days of Contemporary Christian music. I know…because I was there and had the joy of so being part of so many early David and the Giants concerts in Southern Illinois during my JESUS SOLID ROCK radio show/concert era.
Here’s a show that I really think you will enjoy. Please write this week and let me know…plese include your email address for my FULL CIRCLE E-blast…coming out soon.
Go to playlist and find Episode #186 and enjoy or download free from the ITUNES Store.
Last year, just about this same time…I posted this note!
Due to the generous support from listeners Bob Henninger and Connie Waldridge we have posted a new show!
For its first hundred episodes, Full Circle was sponsored by a generous gift from Global Advance, a Dallas, TX missions organization. After fulfilling their commitment to help get the program off the ground, we are now completely dependent on the freewill donations of our listeners. There is no other funding. Recently three classic oldies shows left the airwaves because of a lack of support and this seems to be the trend. No-one can do this without help.
If you would to help keep Full Circle on the air, please consider making a donation. You can mail your gift to:
Full Circle Jesus Music

I decided that maybe a reminder would be in order…here a year later.
Did I get your attention with the title? HA. Just wanted you to know that Episode 185 has posted at www.fullcirclejesusmusic.com and also at the ITUNES store.
This episode is one of my favorite kind of shows because I get the privilege of serving you the listener and taking you back to where it all began…by playing your requests!
We’ll be hearing from a variety of artists including 2 Debbie’s, 3 Steve’s, a host of family members as well as a few musicians known to many and a few that were on the fringe of Jesus music.
Support for the show has dropped off again…so here’s another gentle reminder that your prayers and support are essential…and the smallest gift, even one-time is so appreciated and vital…plus those who can and choose to do more.
Thanks and be sure and signup on my email registry for updates on the new SWEET COMFORT BAND, DANIEL AMOS and Paul Clark albums…plus lots of other events.
Well, here’s the first post of the new year…thanks to some of my friends who have given financial support to make it possible.
It seemed appropriate to feature the legendary Pam Mark Hall on this episode. Pam has been living in Nashville for some time now and I have had the joy of sharing her journey with here…but this week, after packing everything up and selling her condo, she makes the move back to the west coast. We are going to miss her.
Pam Mark Hall was somewhat of a musical prodigy having learned to play the piano by age 6, performing and playing guitar by age 9, and forming her first group called The Chantells at age 12. She is one of those veteran Christian musicians who began singing her songs about her new found faith back at the beginning of the Jesus music era… sharing those pioneering moments with a host of other female singer / songwriters including Honeytree, Jamie Owens Collins, Janny Grein, Karen Lafferty, and even Amy Grant.
Enjoy this interview and many of her early classics as you down load or go to ITUNES. You’ll enjoy the journey too.
Hi everyone and blessings of the season to you.
I’m hoping that you have the time to download not just one FULL CIRCLE show, but 2 shows onto your IPOD for your holiday travels!! I hope that you will share them with family and friends who’ve never heard the show or need to be reminded of the great history of early Jesus music!!
I’m “sharing the love” this season with a Part One and Part Two special from the late and much loved Keith Green. Without a doubt, Keith was one of the most respected and influential musicians in Christian music..not only for his talent but also for his commitment to Christ despite trials and tribulations along the way. His life truly reflected his songs. I know, because I was part of the Last Days Community he and his wife Melody formed back in the mid-70′s in Southern California.
Listen to Part One before Christmas and Part 2 before the New Year or whenever you have a few moments.
Just go to the (Playlist 151 – Present) box and you’ll find it or have it automatically downloaded when you sign up at ITUNES.
I am giving special thanks again to Steven Weyhrick, Robert Henninger, Joshua Inman and Pastor Davis for their consistent underwriting of the show for you to enjoy.
Would you like to add your name to this list of recognition? With so many groups asking “at the end of year donations” for their ministries…I hesitate to ask you again for your help. I believe that the best way we can know what we should do with our finances shouldn’t be just to benefit at tax time…but as the Lord leads and to give from a generous heart. As I said, like everyone we have some real and pressing needs at present and your gift, whether large or small makes a difference. So if you are led to use the PAYPAL button on this page…let me thank you and bless you for your generosity!!
Well, Thanksgiving and Christmas time are here again…a time for families to get together for celebration, reconnection and reflection. Let me be the first to wish you a blessed holiday!
So, since the focus often is on family time…it seemed like a good time for a show looking at “1st and 2d Generation” Jesus music artists. On Episode 181, I’m featuring a song from a veteran Jesus music artist and then featuring a song from one of their children who took up the mantle playing Contemporary Christian Music. I think you’ll enjoy this “past and present” reflection.
Speaking of the past…Wow! It has been so long since I’ve heard from many of you. The show IS continuing with the regular support of a few like Robert Henninger, Steven Weyhrick, Joshua Inman, and Pastor Davis…but let me be BOLD to ask the rest of you to help if you can.
We are approaching the end of the year and many find that supporting a ministry they believe in with a “year end” gift…benefits them at tax time. So, “PRAY AND OBEY” what ever you feel the Lord shows you to do to help support FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC. We have some real and pressing needs in our studio at present and I want to thank you in advance for your prayers and help.
How many of you remember the Blue Jug Band? Blue Jug recorded 3 albums and toured as an opening act with the likes of Lynard Skynard, the Allman Brothers Band, the Charlie Daniels Band and even Molly Hatchet.
On this episode we had a chance to sit down and talk with special guest and founder of the band, Ed Raetzloff. His music is unique as it is probably the only authentic southern rock Jesus music ever released to the general public. Ed’s music had some of the hottest guitar licks in CCM at the time and his lyrics had an honesty and authenticity about them that stands the test of time.
Special friends David Fleser, Joshua Inman, Robert Henninger and Steven Weyhrick made this episode possible through their gifts. Would you like to make the next episode possible? Check at the PayPal button on our website and thanks!!
My amazing script writer for Full Circle, Russell Baum, is a good friend of the legendary Phil Keaggy and sat down with him recently for an in-depth conversation about the release of a project called THE COVER OF LOVE.
If you would like to hear this special feature…please go to www.one-way.org and give a listen. While you’re there…check out the site and the digital recordings of hard to find early Jesus music.
Joy! Joy! It’s time for another request show on FULL CIRCLE…and we’ll be hearing from a variety of artists from the 70′s & 80′s all of whom had a deep desire to share the love of the Lord with their listeners and what they had learned in their journey along the way in the musical styles of their day.
How about music from Randy Matthews, Albrecht, Roley and Moore, The Pat Terry Group, Debbie Boone and David And The Giants to get us started?
This show is underwritten by faithful listeners like Dara Barnes and Robert Henninger and of course Steve Weyhrich. Gosh!! It is such a blessing that a few of you are helping keep FULL CIRCLE on the airways…what about the rest of my friends? Can you do something this week? It will really help!!
Guess what? I just received a letter from my first listener in CHILE!! What a joy to see the best of early Jesus music being heard around the world!! Thank you Jesus!!
