Into The 80′s with Episode #198

Hi Everybody,

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!!

Sounds Of The 70′s On Episode #197

Hi Everybody,

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.

Episode #194 From The UK

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!

Requested By A Listener Who Is ALL IN, Episode #192

Hi Everybody,

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.

Give this story a listen and share it with your friends. Check out my Facebook page…Full Circle Jesus Music and ask to join our Facebook group!!

Thanks!!

Requested SOS on Episode #191

Hi Everybody,

Someone just asked me how many listeners support the show what with almost 1000 folks on the Facebook page now and hundreds more via my email listings…and I told them. “Well to be exact…4 did last month,” to which he replied…”Maybe, they just don’t know to.” “Well, maybe they don’t.” So, want to help? We’d really appreciate it!

We also appreciate those who requested some SOS for this show….(Somewhat Obscure Songs)…I hope you enjoy.

I also hope you enjoy a sneak preview of an upcoming interview with Kenny Marks. Just click the playlist button and give a listen!! Thanks!

Special Guest: John Michael Talbot Featured on Episode #190

Hi Everybody,

On this episode we’ll be hearing from John Michael Talbot who recently stopped by Nashville for a 3 day seminar and concert series. John Michael took some time out during his busy schedule to renew our friendship and talked with me about his music and how God has radically changed his whole life.

You’ll hear from John Michael and Terry Talbot and others that were influenced by their music…such as Jamie Owens Collins and Albrecht, Roley and Moore.

I have many, many silent listeners around the world and I am indeed grateful. But, less than 1/2 dozen friends support the show consistently and make it possible for others to be blessed. Would you consider joining our little family of underwriters? What ever you send will make more of a difference than you know!! With your help we will be able to move toward our goal….the 200d Episode!!!

Episode #189 Bible characters

Hi Everybody,

Instead of listener requests or artists interviews which have been the norm for numerous episodes of the show for the past couple of months we are going to take on characters in the Bible as interpreted by the Jesus music artists of the 70′s & 80′s.

We’ll be hearing from the likes of Barry McGuire, Don Francisco, Matthew Ward, Honeytree, Kelly Willard, and Twila Paris to name a few.

Click the playlist button and enjoy!!

If you would help us financially underwrite this Episode, especially during the slower summer months…I would appreciate it. Joe Baudino, Mark Groettum, Paul French, Bob Henninger and other did…why not join them?
