Episode #235 From The Other Side Of The Stage with guest Alex MacDougall

Hi Everybody,

I’m entitling this show “From The Other Side of the Stage” because I am highlighting an artist who doesn’t normally get the spotlight but has made a significant mark on the musical genre as a whole. On this episode I’ll be talking with a man who has played so many various roles within the music world. Drummer / percussionist Alex Macdougall, who was a member of numerous early Jesus music groups in the 70’s as well as a studio musician for literally hundreds of albums during that time and well into the following 3 decades.

You’ll hear early Jesus music from The Way, Bob Bennett, Daniel Amos, Mark Heard and much more as I have a candid discussion with Alex and explore those remarkable artists and recordings. I think you will really enjoying see the stage from “the other side”. Be sure and open Playlist 201 – Present, click on Episode #235 and enjoy.

Would you prayerfully consider joining with the listeners of Full Circle who are “all in” and send in monthly support for the expenses of the show. Go to the DONATE button at the top right of this page and do what you are willing to do, monthly or one time. I’m looking to add more support for the show in this next season to be able to do what God has called us to do. Thanks.

It’s All About Jesus, Episode #234

Just in time for Holy week…here’s Episode #234. Many of you will be observing Good Friday, Sunrise services and Easter Sunday so on Episode #234 I’ll be featuring songs from early Jesus music with that appropriate theme. I’ve even heard that some of you will be taking spring break, so what a great time to listen to this new episode as you drive along!

I’m featuring music from the band called Jerusalem, Don Franciso, Bob Bennett, Michael Card and of course the late Keith Green’s version of THE VICTOR. I really believe that you’ll enjoy the show and share it with other Jesus music fans. In case you may have forgotten how to hear the show, look for the Playlist 201-Present tab just above.

Hey everybody!

Don’t you just love the word of God? There is so much rich truth for us to help guide our way in a very dark time. So, on this episode I’ll being taking a musical look again at 1st Thessalonians!

It’s Christmas Time Again – Enjoying The Season on Episode #231

Hi Everybody, it’s that time again! It seems like only last week that I posted last years Christmas show. This year has gone by so quickly!

Unlike Christmas episodes we’ve done in the past I thought we’d take this one in a different direction by featuring all original songs instead of the traditional classics. On this episode you’ll be hearing from Jesus music pioneers Chuck Girard, Barry McGuire, Terry Talbot and Phil Keaggy, a few female veterans of Christian music Evie and Amy Grant. I’ll also feature a few less familiar voices but who are still around making music today.

Love Thru The Years – Episode #229

Hi Everybody,

Well, after a summer break in San Diego, California, I’m back and I am posting the next episode of Full Circle Jesus Music. I tried my friends, I really tried but I was so enjoying taking some much needed rest. There is nothing like the Southern California coast at Carlsbad where I was visiting with my son. The sound of the waves are so peaceful and relaxing. God showed up with amazing sunsets as well…and we spent hours watching and drinking it all in.

I am amazed with the love of God!! On this episode I’ll go thru the years one year at a time starting with 1976 and ending in 1987. I’ve picked some great songs from each year about God’s love from DeGarmo & Key with Amy Grant, After The Fire, Dan Peek, Annie Herring and many more!!

Your love tank might be full and you’re grateful to God for how loved you are in Him or your love tank might be less than full and maybe even completely drained. I pray that the love of God will find you where you are and show you His goodness as you listen to this episode.

Special thanks to my friends who continued to send in financial underwriting for this ministry, even though I was on vacation. That’s what friends are for!! And a special “hello” to all my new friends who recently joined our family.

From Genesis to Exodus, Episode #228

Hi Everybody,

On this episode, we’ll be going back to the very beginning. In fact we are going to be hearing a musical retrospect of the first two books of the Bible, Genesis and Exodus.

Memories From 1976 – Episode #227

We had a longer wait for this show to be finished but with the financial help of some great fans of Jesus music, I am proud to share the Jesus Music of the 70’s and the 80’s!! Thanks for your patience.

You’ll be hearing from the likes of The Pat Terry Group, The Hope of Glory and Terry Talbot. Jesus music veterans like Randy Stonehill and Chuck Girard of Love Song as well as some new faces in the mix.

Episode #226, Randy Matthews, Son Of Dust, Part 2

Hi Everybody,

Thank you for your encouraging response to Part 1 of our special episodes with Jesus music veteran Randy Matthews. I am grateful to Randy for taking some time to share his memories when I visited with him in Sarasota, Fla. Randy told me that he was surprised that people would still be interested in his music after all this time. Go to the PLAYLIST 201-Present link above and download Part 2 of our interview.

Part of the reason I wanted to interview Randy was to “take you back to where it all began” and remind you of the rich legacy of today’s CCM music and the music of folks like Randy Matthews. With your ongoing support, Full Circle can be a vehicle to accomplish this. Use the DONATE button on the top right if you want to help.

I would like to thank Randy once again for taking the time to share with us all the ups and downs of his life that this true veteran and trailblazer of Jesus music has gone through. You can find out more about Randy by going to his Facebook page. You can also get a freshly digitized copy of Randy’s most notable CD, SON OF DUST, by going to www.randymatthewsCD.com
