An Amazingly Encouraging Letter To Full Circle

Rarely would I share a full letter from a listener…but here’s an exception because this letter was so packed with encouragement to “press on”, that I realize regardless of discouragements and disappointments…I simply must.

Good day to you, Jerry!

I’ve been listening to your entire catalog of Full Circle shows, and I just had to write to tell you how much I love this show.  I will be totally honest with you:  I listen to a lot of podcasts and radio shows. And, if I could place all of the other podcasts and radio shows that I like on one hand, and place Full Circle on the other, and I had to choose between the two, . . . yes, I would take Full Circle over ALL the others, combined!  Your show is uplifting, inspirational, Biblical, and you play my favorite kind of music, too!  Who could ask for more?

Jerry, I want to especially thank you for playing Amy Grant, Bob Dylan, B.J. Thomas and others who have been spurned by a large portion of the Church.  We are all human, and no matter what these folks have done, they recorded some truly inspirational music.  I still remember being moved by Amy’s “In a Little While” BEFORE I ever even knew the Lord!

Thanks again for all that you do.  You are a true minister of God’s Word and His agape (His unconditional love).  Please keep up the good work, faithful servant!

More Requests And Hits From 1985 On Episode #161

Hi Everybody….thanks for listening to the show and telling your friends about us.

Question:  When did the last Episode of Full Circle post?  Survey says: (actually only one) July 6th!

Thanks to a new friend who sent us help…Mr. James Campbell…here’s Episode #161 featuring some special requests for hit songs from 1985.  You’ll hear from the likes of Petra, Kerry Livgren, Connie Scott, David Meece and much more.  Go to the playlist, click and enjoy!

Sadly we lost several Jesus music pioneers recently.  Dan Peek, from the band America passed away at the age of 60 on July 24th. His album, “All Things Are Possible” lives on in his memory.

On July 31st, one of the seminal figures in the development of UK Christian music, guitarist, singer and songwriter Norman Barratt died at age 61 in London, after suffering severe post-surgery complications.  He played with Christian acts such as The Mighty Flyers before joining the Alwyn Wall Band in 1976. The band recorded one album for Word and toured with America’s Larry Norman.

Janny Grein spiritual music singer and songwriter lost her bout with cancer on Aug 4th but it was heaven’s gain.  She wrote such classics as “More Than Conquerors/Count It All Joy/Free Indeed.”

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.  Blessings!
