Hello My Friends

Hebrew ( שלום חברים שלי מה)

I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed our Sunday special programming, I can use some input; did you enjoy it?

Where do the weeks go; Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner. We will be doing some great Christmas music this year. Phillip is going to give me a hand with the music and I I can use all the help I can get.

Are you interested in helping CCM Classic in some capacity? We can talk about it

Well we have a lot to go over; this weeks Vinyl Revival is Phil Keaggy’s album “The Wind and The Wheat. There is a great blog provided by Philip Mayabb to go side by side with this great album.

One of the most amazing things is that it took Phil Keaggy 16 years, and 10 albums before he was given his first Dove Award by the Gospel Music Association, and the recording that clinched the award is our Vinyl Revival feature LP this week, it is this 1987 instrumental classic.

The song of the week is “the Revelation Song” by Philips Craig & Dean.

Revelation Song is a song written by Jennie Lee Riddle with lyrics adapted from Revelation 5 of the New Testament. The song first gained exposure on U.S. Christian radio through a Christ for the Nations recording, Glorious in 2004, s well as on Gateway Worship's debut album, Living for You in 2006, and subsequently included on Kari Jobe 's self-titled album It was later released by Phillips, Craig and Dea as the first single off Fearless .

It is Gospel Monday and we have some great album provided by Philip Mayabb:
