What a treat to be able to share a great conversation that I had with John Elefante former lead singer from Kansas in 1983 and then his own band Mastedon. John has been involved in the Christian music business for over 30 years. Singer, songwriter, performer, producer, studio engineer and label founder…John has done it all.
Along with his personal comments on his contribution to the sound of Contemporary Christian Music, John is probably best known as one half, along with his brother Dino, of the production team for the group Petra from 1985 to the year 2000 for a total of 13 albums!
I hope you’ll enjoy this special episode!
It’s cold in Nashville!!
A perfect time to look up north and feature some great songs from the folks from Canada on Episode #168 like Quickflight, Salvation Air Force, Daniel Band and Bruce Cockburn.
Then we’ll tool down the west coast and catch some of the early new wave/punk bands such as Undercover, Livesavers, the 77s and Daniel Amos. Go to www.fullcirclejesusmusic.com to the play list to listen or download from the ITUNES store!!
Enjoy and stay warm!!
Lee Elder wrote about Episode #165 “Great show with Pat Terry! He was really one of my great heroes of the early CCM movement. It was nice hearing Pat’s comments and to listen to those old songs once again. It really was “sweet music” and came at a good time while I was trying to finish a late-night project on the computer. Can’t wait for Part 2!!!”
Well Happy New Year to Lee and everyone else….here’s Part 2!!
Episode #167 (After a timely insert with the Christmas show…Episode #166) was made possible by a couple of our listeners. Thanks!
