Hi Everybody,

Well, it’s about time! I have been waiting for your response to the upcoming Phil Keaggy show, Pt 1 and I can’t wait any more…it’s such a great show. I hope you’ll enjoy!

As you know, Phil is a great friend and an amazing gift to Jesus Music and we are eternally grateful for his allowing us to use his song FULL CIRCLE for our opening theme. On a recent interview we found out a lot more about this incredible talent and all that has inspired his longevity! Recently he started a Kickstarter project for his next project (after over 60 albums)…if you’d like to help him, go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/philkeaggy2015/phil-keaggy-tune-to-tune

I bet it will be as great as all of of his past efforts because Phil, like fine wine, get’s better with age!!

Remembering Billy Ray on Episode #209

Hi Everybody,

The summer is at an end and with your help and support, I’m going to crank up a few new FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC shows for you to enjoy. Special thanks to Russell Baum and Jeff Cain who help me produce the show, my faithful friend Steven Weyhrich who handles the webmastering and special support from David and Vicki Davis, Bill and Linda Schaaff, Walter Gorlitz, Alan Ray, Harriet Keith and Paul French…who made this show possible.

Episode #209 is dedicated to a wonderful friend of JESUS MUSIC, the late Billy Ray Hearn who created a new department at WORD Records, called Myrrh, where he introduced some of the early pioneers of JESUS MUSIC to the world and then went on to establish Sparrow Records until he finished his race on April 15, 2015.

He was a special gift to us all as he had the heart and ear to hear the music of our last generation and put it on vinyl. When I lived at Last Days Community with Keith and Melody Green, Billy allowed me to use the Sparrow Records shipping room in Canoga Park, California to mail my JESUS SOLID ROCK radio show on vinyl to my radio affiliates.

Enjoy this condensed tribute from my last 2 hours with Billy Ray….he’ll be missed.

Full Circle is produced for you to recall the best of early Jesus music and on this show you will hear great songs from Chuck Girard from Love Song, Keith Green, Maria Mulduar, Steve Camp and Paul Clark and some of his friends. Songs about Mercy and Grace…much needed in this tumultuous season.

My friends Steven Weyrich, Paul French, Joseph and Serene Culp, David and Vicki Davis, Harriet Keith, Bill and Linda Schaaff and Greg Lord…helped bring this Episode to you and look forward to your joining in the financial underwriting of the next show.

Your gift is tax-exempt when you click the DONATE link on the right…and would you consider sponsoring a COMPASSION child too…and let me know if you do. Thanks.

Do You Remember 1984? Listen To Episode #207

Hi Everybody,

My last Full Circle episode featured songs from 1974…so I thought why not jump 10 years and recall the music of 1984? Do you remember where you were and what special events happened that year? It was the year that Ronald Reagan was re-elected President and Nashville’s Scott Hamilton won the US Male Figure Skating Championship and so much more!

On this episode you’ll hear classic Jesus Music songs from folks like Leslie Phillips, Daniel Amos, Leon Patillo, Dan Peek and Larry Norman…quite a variety to enjoy.

Be sure and check us out on Roku ITUNES Podcast channel, Tunein Radio app as well as many affiliate radio stations. Of course you can also go to the playlist on this page…click Episode #207 and play the show…or download the show at the ITUNES store.

Tell your friends about FULL CIRCLE and prayerfully support this ministry with your giving. There’s lots more music to play. Write me if you’d like to be on our newsletter mailing list.

Thanks

Looking Back To 1974 On Episode #206

Hi Everybody,

I love to feature interviews and there are more interviews coming from folks like Phil Keaggy and Kelly Willard and others, but on this episode I thought I would focus more on the music side of things, specifically taking a closer look at the year of 1974. (Do you remember that I started in Jesus music radio in 1972 with the radio show JESUS SOLID ROCK?) At that time Jesus music was only about 5 years old!!

On this episode I’ll take you back to recall the music of Jesus music veteran Paul Clark, Barry McGuire, 2d Chapter of Acts, Love Song and so many more. Please give a listen and be sure to pass it on to other friends of early Jesus music.

You might have been wondering when this next Episode would be posted and it may be a good time to let you know that I plan on producing more FULL CIRCLE shows whether I have a large, supporting listening audience or just one or two of you that write and give financially into the ministry…because this ministry is all for Jesus and nothing more.

Sometimes it seems that we are going pretty slow, so if you want to help speed things up a bit, maybe you’d be willing to commit to supporting the show with your prayers and giving…and following through as unto the Lord, even if it’s only a little from time to time.

Episode #205 – Truth Is Gary Chapman

Hi Everybody,

With the support of Rev David Davis and Steven Weyrich, I am able to post a “new” episode after a season of waiting. Do you enjoy waiting? Not that much fun but when you are in the service of the King, you have to learn to wait until support comes to continue on with the next season….and there are many other shows in the works…with the long-awaited update shows from Phil Keaggy, Sparrows Billy Ray Hearn and a couple of other surprises you don’t want to miss!

Gary Chapman gave me an exclusive interview recently on how it all started for him and what he is doing today…along with a sample of the new project TRUTH.

I hope you’ll enjoy Episode #205 and tell your friends about the show. It would be great to have you on our Full Circle eblast mailing list and also to have you join our Full Circle Jesus Music Facebook page.

Thanks for your prayers and support as we continue into this news season.

Leftovers Taste Good – Episode #204

So tell me, which holiday is your favorite? Many would say Christmas and I would agree but I also am very fond of Thanksgiving here in the good old USA! We have so much to be thankful for and then there’s the joy of Thanksgiving feasting with friends and family.

And there’s always so many good LEFTOVERS!! Well, this episode reflects on this thought in regards to the fact that the songs you are about to hear, are considered leftovers from past episodes of FULL CIRCLE.

What I mean by that is that we sometimes plan to play more songs on the show but because of time constraints we just can’t seem to fit in all the songs we would like to.

You don’t want to miss the music of Evie, Michael Omartian, Airborne, Daniel Band, and much more on this episode.

Remember we are listener supported…would you be willing to play a part this week? Thanks! You can use our PayPal button on this page.
