Not Forgotten on Episode #257

Hi Everybody, On this episode I’ll be featuring songs from those musicians who started out in the 1970’s but by the mid to late 80’s seemed to have had less of an impact for a variety of reasons. That’s not a putdown but we tend to forget what’s not in the limelight and here are some songs and artists, that we don’t want to forget.

Some of the artists you’ll be hearing from include Jesus music veterans Randy Stonehill and The 2nd Chapter of Acts. Singer / Songwriters Barry McGuire, Chuck Girard and Paul Clark. The husband and wife duo known as Farrell & Farrell. Female songstress Jamie Owens Collins. As well as Keith Green and Larry Norman, both of whom have gone on to be with the Lord.

Many have told me that you loved the 80’s Jesus music, so we’ll probably do this again and try to get to other songs you want to hear. Why not write me at info@fullcirclejesusmusic.com and let me know what to add to this list.

As always, thank you for considering and giving your support to FULL CIRCLE at the “Giving Fuel” button at the top right of the page.

Dreams And Visions on Episode #256

Hi everybody, On this episode I want to explore, Dreams and Visions. Ever had any? God uses them to communicate with us, giving us direction and in some cases get our attention when we are not listening.

You’ll hear from Jesus music pioneers Alwyn Wall and Darrell Mansfield, 80’s singer/songwriters David Stearman and Paul Smith, female artist Stephanie Boosahda and Twila Paris, the husband and wife duo of Farrell & Farrell as well as some other less well known musicians who have touched on the topic of Dreams & Visions.

Tasty Leftovers, Served Up on Episode #255

Over the holiday there’s always a lot of food to be eaten and most likely some pretty tasty leftovers too. On this episode I’ll be featuring songs that were supposed to be on previous episodes but for one reason or another didn’t quite make it on the air. Ready for some tasty leftovers?

You’ll get to taste some amazing songs from Jesus music pioneers Barry McGuire, Paul Clark, Tim Shepherd and Randy Matthews as well as a few other songs you’ve never tried out before. We even have some English fare with songs from Bryn Haworth and the duo called Phil and John.

Episode #254 – A Steve Scott Retrospective

Hi Everybody,

On this episode I’ll been focusing on the more avant garde, experimental Jesus music back in the day, so you the listener, don’t think I only play country rock or ballads, ha. I’ll be visiting with Steve Scott. Now while many of you may not have heard of Steve you have certainly heard of those Christian musicians he influenced and mentored in the early 80’s as you will see in my interview with him.

Steve, he is more than just another Christian musician having delved into poetry, spoken word artristy, speaking at conferences and teaching at schools. He has also contributed articles for several periodicals as well as becoming a published author.

You’ll hear songs from groups he influenced like Randy Stonehill, Charlie Peacock the 77’s band and the late Tom Howard. Give a listen, I think you’ll enjoy this creative guest, reflecting his “true world view” of the Christian culture and faith.

Thanks once again to those who continually underwrite this ministry. You are a blessing!

On With The Fight, Episode #253

Much has been said about our current situation around the world. Seems that there’s another new event every day to grip the heart with the fear of the unknown. Yet, there still remains one answer…and on this episode you’ll hear it. The power of the truth of God, will overcome all darkness and fear!! Jesus was raised from the dead and He’s alive and will reign!!

You’ll hear the message in the music from the SWEET COMFORT BAND, ALLIES, GEOFF MOORE, PETRA, DARRELL MANSFIELD and so many more. Let not your heart be overcome by anxiety or fear. Keep your eyes to the sky and you’ll win every battle!

Bob Henninger suggested the theme for this episode on SPIRITUAL WARFARE, sent the music and personally underwrote the show…thanks Bob!! I’m also grateful to Denzel Polliock, Paul French, Greg Lord and Tom Tatlow for their support this month to this listener supported ministry. Would you consider joining this small army and doing your part? All gifts are tax-exempt and appreciated.
