Do you remember 1986? On the musical front the first induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame takes place. The first artists to be honored are Chuck Berry, James Brown, Ray Charles, Fats Domino, the Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Elvis Presley.
But the Jesus Music songs that influenced us…were songs like Randy Stonehill and THE GODS OF MEN, Sheila Walsh and WHAT DO YOU KNOW, Petra and BACK TO THE STREETS, Tonio K and TRUE CONFESSIONS and so much more? On Episode #174 we’re going to go back 25 years ago to the year 1986 and see what was in the charts and on Christian radio at the time.
Once again Mr. Henninger underwrites this new episode and Bill Cribbs has stepped up to underwrite the next show…which is on its way…thanks guys!!!
In my last post I said I could enjoy getting use to posting 2 Episodes back to back….but even though it has been a while since support enabled me to do that…thanks to my friends John Carroll and Bob Henninger who have stepped up to underwrite the show…I am able to post Episode #173 and I think it’s worth the wait.
On this show, I thought I’d feature one song each from the years 1971 thru 1984. That covers a whole host of artists and styles including some popular favorites such as Amy Grant, DeGarmo & Key, The Imperials, Fireworks, The 2nd Chapter of Acts, & Phil Keaggy to name a few.
Recently someone wrote and asked how much it would cost to underwrite a show…and when I told them…they apologetically said they couldn’t send that much because things were tight and I said that I understood. But, here’s something I wish I could get everyone to understand. Even if you can’t underwrite an entire show…”what ever you can send” will add up with the “whatever you can send” from others…and guess what? Another show gets produced and posted!!! Thanks again for your prayers and support!!
