Leftovers Are Actually Quite Tasty, Episode #154 Is Up!

On Episode #154 I’m going to give you what I’m calling LEFTOVER’S. What I mean by this is that we’ll be listening to some songs that were going to be included in past FULL CIRCLE shows but we just didn’t have enough time to include them.

We’ll be hearing from the likes of classic rockers Resurrection Band and DeGarmo & Key, new wave artists Weber & The Buzztones and Quickflight, some fine songwriters like Bill Batstone, Tom Howard and Chris Christian, as well as those who paved the way for CCM like Farrell & Farrell, Paul Clark and our opening songstress..Honeytree!  Go to the play list and give it a listen or download from the ITUNES store at FULL CIRCLE JESUS MUSIC!!

On the next Episode of FULL CIRCLE…we’ll celebrate the life and music of the late and legendary LARRY NORMAN, who passed away February 24, 2008!  Don’t miss the show!

Special thanks to Jeffrey and Mary Beth Smith from Grand Island, NY who underwrote this show…as well as provided a matching grant (GREAT IDEA) from where he works!  Thanks guys!

Bill Gets It…He Understands Why I Do Full Circle!

Recently, I received this note from a listener….encouraging me to continue on with FULL CIRCLE.  He gets it!  He understands why I continue to do the show!  Thanks so much!!

He wrote:  “I just want you to know that I appreciate F/C so much and enjoy not only the current episodes but past shows also.

I’ll never forget when I was first exposed to Jesus Music back in the ’70s when my cousin gave me a cassette of Love Song.  I listened to it over and over.  I soon fell in love with 2nd Chapter, Barry McGuire, Phil Keaggy, Lamb, and all of the Maranatha!, Myrrh, Word, and Sparrow recordings.

There is a distinct difference in the message and tone of those days.  They weren’t afraid of the name “Jesus” in their lyrics and the music was so much more of a cheerful tone.

God bless you, Bro. Jerry!   Paypal has 50 bucks coming your way.  Wish I could do more!”


Songs From The Road, Episode #153

On this episode will be checking out some ROAD tunes. By that I mean songs that deal with the topic of walking on the narrow road with Jesus that leads to life.

We’ll be hearing from many of the artist who favored a country Jesus music style such as early Daniel Amos, Bruce Carroll, Ed Raetzloff, and Mark Heard. You’ll also get a taste of some better known artists like Larry Norman and Keith Green.

I’ve received so many, many emails from folks like you tell me “Jerry, we love the show”  “God bless you…keep up the good work”  

Those letters are encouraging to say the least.  Only one thing that can make this happen though.  God using folks like you to partner with me.  I never have liked talking about finances…but real facts are that costs are incurred…so maybe you are someone God wants to use to support this ministry…and whether one time or often, a small gift or large…it all matters…really it does!

There’s a paypal button at this website, a snail mail address…and of course a lot of other stuff…check it out!

Nuff said.
