Bruce Carroll on Episode #230

Hi Everybody,

Well, it’s been a long time coming but finally…Bruce Carroll is my special guest on FULL CIRCLE. Memphis, where Bruce lives, isn’t that far from Nashville but I guess I was waiting for him to move over here…ha.

You will really enjoy hearing about the journey that Bruce has been on since the early days of CCM. He is an amazing song writer and story teller as you will be able to tell on songs like Living In The Pages, The Great Exchange, Sometimes Miracles Hide…and of course
Who Will Be Jesus. These songs and many more are featured on this special episode of Full Circle. Tell your friends and let Bruce himself know that you enjoyed the show. You can contact him at http://www.brucecarroll.com/

Thanks for your prayers and support for the show and join our email blast list or Facebook page…all I need is your email address.

Keep Your Eyes To The Sky and let your light shine!!

Love Thru The Years – Episode #229

Hi Everybody,

Well, after a summer break in San Diego, California, I’m back and I am posting the next episode of Full Circle Jesus Music. I tried my friends, I really tried but I was so enjoying taking some much needed rest. There is nothing like the Southern California coast at Carlsbad where I was visiting with my son. The sound of the waves are so peaceful and relaxing. God showed up with amazing sunsets as well…and we spent hours watching and drinking it all in.

I am amazed with the love of God!! On this episode I’ll go thru the years one year at a time starting with 1976 and ending in 1987. I’ve picked some great songs from each year about God’s love from DeGarmo & Key with Amy Grant, After The Fire, Dan Peek, Annie Herring and many more!!

Your love tank might be full and you’re grateful to God for how loved you are in Him or your love tank might be less than full and maybe even completely drained. I pray that the love of God will find you where you are and show you His goodness as you listen to this episode.

Special thanks to my friends who continued to send in financial underwriting for this ministry, even though I was on vacation. That’s what friends are for!! And a special “hello” to all my new friends who recently joined our family.

From Genesis to Exodus, Episode #228

Hi Everybody,

On this episode, we’ll be going back to the very beginning. In fact we are going to be hearing a musical retrospect of the first two books of the Bible, Genesis and Exodus.

If you like the music of David & the Giants, Jerusalem, Steve Camp, Michael Card and more…you’ll be right at home. Their songs will tell the stories.

Memories From 1976 – Episode #227

Hi everybody,

We had a longer wait for this show to be finished but with the financial help of some great fans of Jesus music, I am proud to share the Jesus Music of the 70’s and the 80’s!! Thanks for your patience.

On this episode I’m reviewing the bicentennial year of 1976 and I am truly amazed with the great songs that came out that year. You’ll be hearing from the likes of The Pat Terry Group, The Hope of Glory and Terry Talbot. Jesus music veterans like Randy Stonehill and Chuck Girard of Love Song as well as some new faces in the mix.

Each week the radio show is heard from Alaska to Florida on great Christian stations. Then I take the past show and put it on the web for the world-wide audience.

Episode #226, Randy Matthews, Son Of Dust, Part 2

Hi Everybody,

Thank you for your encouraging response to Part 1 of our special episodes with Jesus music veteran Randy Matthews. I am grateful to Randy for taking some time to share his memories when I visited with him in Sarasota, Fla. Randy told me that he was surprised that people would still be interested in his music after all this time. Go to the PLAYLIST 201-Present link above and download Part 2 of our interview.

Part of the reason I wanted to interview Randy was to “take you back to where it all began” and remind you of the rich legacy of today’s CCM music and the music of folks like Randy Matthews. With your ongoing support, Full Circle can be a vehicle to accomplish this. Use the DONATE button on the top right if you want to help.

I would like to thank Randy once again for taking the time to share with us all the ups and downs of his life that this true veteran and trailblazer of Jesus music has gone through. You can find out more about Randy by going to his Facebook page. You can also get a freshly digitized copy of Randy’s most notable CD, SON OF DUST, by going to www.randymatthewsCD.com

Episode #225, Randy Matthews, Son Of Dust, Part 1

Hi everybody,

It has been a long time coming but Full Circle is happy to share part one of an in-depth interview with Jesus music pioneer Randy Matthews. “Red the Pirate” as he is affectionately called in the Sarasota, Florida area, regularly entertains the resort kids with Pirate stories and songs but he recalled with me the early days of his music and that first Pennsylvania music festival that made history!

You will enjoy hearing his classics again or if you’ve never heard of Randy or his music, you’ll discover some of the amazing songs that paved the way for today’s CCM.

Episode #224 Leftovers Taste Good!

Hi Everybody,

Do you like leftovers? After a great Holiday dinner, there’s always something to look forward to…and they’re just as good as the first time! With the FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC show, I often have to cut out some great songs that I intended to play, due to time constraints. After a while these “leftovers” pile up.

You’ve been patiently waiting and it’s time for great tunes from Michelle Wagner,
Matthew Ward, Adam Again, Petra, the 77’s and much more! You’ll understand why I couldn’t forget those tunes and I hope you won’t either.

Episode #223, Christmas Songs For A Cabin in Colorado

Hi Everybody,

It is that time again…tis the season and Jesus is the reason! So many of us love the amazing Christmas songs played at this time of year…so what early Jesus music songs would you want to hear if you were stranded in a snowstorm in a cabin in Colorado? On this episode of FULL CIRCLE we’ll explore that very question…I hope you’ll enjoy! I won’t tell you the songs…so you can listen and discover for yourself the memories of Christmas.

Episode #222 – Late Great

You know, I’m so grateful for early Jesus music, the songs and the people that helped mold my days as a young believer. So, on this episode I am going to reflect on early pioneers that have passed on. They might be forgotten, but they made it possible for those who followed after.

On Sunday, Sept 15, 2016 we lost Jonathan David Brown. Jonathan was an early song writer and producer of so many of the early Jesus music groups. He was my special guest on Episode #113.

I also want pay tribute to the music and ministry of Ron Salsbury from the JC Power Outlet, who stepped into an eternity with Jesus on July 31, 2016.

Since we are honoring the passing of some of the pioneers of early Jesus Music, I also want to remember the late Gary S. Paxton, who went home to be with the Lord on July 17, 2016.

I rejoice in the contribution of these pioneers of early Jesus music as I also rejoice in those who support Jesus music by underwriting FULL CIRCLE…folks like Paul French, David & Vicki Davis, William and Linda Schaaff, Tom Tatlow, Joshua Inman, Steve Weyhrich and others. There’s room for you too. Use the Donation button on the right.

Songs from Colossians 3 – Episode #221

Hi Everybody,

It’s my 70th birthday week and I’d like to share a gift with you too! There’s a book in the Bible that has really been an encouragement to me over the years, the book of Colossians. On this episode, I’ll be highlighting some passages from Chapter 3 and playing songs that correspond with the theme of this letter that Paul wrote from prison.

You’ll hear some classics from folks like Steven Curtis Chapman, Petra, Randy Stonehill, David Meece, Michael Card and another song from our special guest on Episode #220, Kelly Willard. The purpose for this theme is to help keep you focused on God’s transforming truth and not get led astray by fine-sounding arguments, hollow and deceptive philosophy. Be sure and give a listen!

Thanks goes out to the faithful listeners who have supported this show…Joshua Inman, Steven Weyhrich, David and Vicki Davis, Paul French, Tom Tatlow, Rick Tarrant and others. It really makes a difference when you share the load of the ministry with your prayers and your giving.
