Back in the early days of the JESUS SOLID ROCK radio concerts in Southern Illinois, I booked in a couple of “blokes” from the UK and I will never forget their captivating songs and performance. Were you there that night? Malcolm and Alwyn have always been a favorite of mine so you can imagine my joy in tracking them down after all these years for fresh interviews. Even if you haven’t heard them I am sure that you will enjoy their interviews and music…as we’re taking you back to where it all began!!
Thanks to all who congratulated us on the 200d Episode of FULL CIRCLE. We couldn’t have reached this milestone without your prayers and financial support and the help of my writer Russell Baum and producer Jeff Cain…who are anxious to produce more programs when the financial support comes in from you the listener.
Thank you in advance for praying for us and giving what ever you can, whenever you can. Be sure and tell your friends about the show. You can now listen around the world at www.fullcirclejesusmusic.com, on ITUNES, on the TUNEIN radio ap, on ROKU TV (private channel, ITUNES PODCASTS) and on many radio and internet stations. Give us a listen and catch up on any shows you’ve missed.
Well, it’s come to a milestone that I am excited to share with you…our 200th Episode of FULL CIRCLE. So many of our Jesus Music friends called in with congratulations and warm regards….thank you! I think you will enjoy listening to classic songs from Phil Keaggy, Randy Stonehill, Farrell and Farrell, Steve Taylor, Bob Bennett and so many more!
Why did it take so many years to get to Episode #200? Well, give a listen to the show and you’ll find out. Let me once again tell you how much I appreciate the ministry of Dr David Shibley and Global Advance who got this classic show started with sponsorship at the beginning. Without him, we probably wouldn’t have begun this journey, but I am so glad we did.
Over the years, I have made so many new friends who have shared stories and memories of early Jesus music with me. Your letters have been so encouraging and those who have joined this now listener-supported family…are so appreciated. I think they would join with me inviting the rest of you to join us as we move on towards Episode #300. See you there!!
Well, thanks to a faithful friend whose underwriting got the motor running again…here’s Episode #199…and I hope you’ll like it.
Here’s hoping that you will also be inspired to “pay it forward” for those who haven’t yet supported the radio show and be blessed as both “giver” and “receiver”.
It is the first time that I have featured artists as both preacher and singer. On this weeks episode we’ll be featuring the music and message from some of the Contemporary Christian musicians of the past who are now pastors or in some cases evangelists. They include Oden Fong of Mustard Seed Faith, Mylon LeFevre, Scott Roley of Albrecht, Roley & Moore, Glenn Kaiser of the Resurrection Band and a few others that are in the “Whatever Happened To” category.
I thought you’d like to hear some of what each of our guests sound like as they preach from the word before I get into their music. Give a listen and let me know what you think…also this week, why not go to our Facebook page and asked to join the FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC group and send me your email address for our Full Circle Email blasts for up to date news and photos of Jesus music artist concerts and happenings. If you download the show from ITUNES…I’d appreciate your rating the show so that others might be alerted to give that show a listen. Thanks!!!
On our last episode we brought you the Sounds of the 70’s. To follow that up we’ll be moving INTO THE 80’s with those artists and songs that were hitting the airwaves and the road as Christian Music would be making huge leaps both on the radio and in the concert halls. No longer would CCM be only heard from time to time on Christian radio stations and performances be subject solely to churches but now there would be full time Christian music stations and live concerts in large theaters and for some artist the bigger arenas.
On Episode #198 we’ll be hearing from the likes of Leslie Phillips, Leon Patillo, Dion DiMucci, Michael W. Smith and more.
We’re getting close to the 200th Episode of FULL CIRCLE with lots of special guests liners,
music and memories. That’s 200 hours of classic Jesus music!!! Maybe you’d like to help financially underwrite this milestone episode? Let me know by using the PayPal button or sending your support to our mailing address….thanks for whatever you can do!!
On this episode we’re going to be featuring what I’ll call the Sounds of the 70’s. These are the groups and artists who were blazing the trail for those who would come after.
We’ll be hearing from the likes of Mustard Seed Faith, Bethlehem, The All-Saved Freak Band, The Way, The Sweet Comfort Band and Ron Salsbery and the J C Power Outlet as well as individual artists including Steve Camp, Honeytree and Amy Grant.
No one really made any money back then…ministry was the driving force behind the music…seeing lives changed through the preaching of the gospel…that was the beginning of what has now become an industry unto itself.
Go to the playlist and give a listen and take a moment to write and reflect on your favorite group of the 70’s.

This episode of FULL CIRCLE is dedicated to a long time listener Pastor Joseph Culp who originally comes from Scotland but currently resides in Pickerington, Ohio. He suggested the majority of the songs we’ll be hearing on this show and wouldn’t you just know it…all of these selections come from the United Kingdom where he grew up.
Some songs will be new to many of you but it just goes to show that America wasn’t the only country with a vibrant and thriving Jesus music movement in the 70’s & 80’s.
Other artists you may be familiar with because they did have radio airplay here in the states include Sheila Walsh, Cliff Richard, Iona, Phil & John and Graham Kendrick.
Thanks for the suggestions “Capt Scotland”….and the support for the show!

I have a story to tell on Episode #192 that is quite amazing…where a listener wrote to request songs and I found out that he lived just over the hill from me here in Nashville. So, Joshua Inman not only requested the songs for this show…he covered the cost of production…entirely!! He’s ALL IN!!
You’ll hear songs from Paul Clark, 2d Chapter of Acts, Steve Archer, Whiteheart and much more…and of course, Joshua’s favorite artist…Sheila Walsh.
