E17 A Lost Episode


If you know James at all...You know he can't remember things. He's like Dory, "Just Keep Breathing". He doesn't remember the names of his children or anyone elses for that matter.

A few months ago, he recording this show as a fill in just in case we ever needed it.

Well, we don't need it but we decided to go ahead and let it out of the gate in hopes that you will enjoy it.

Hour #1 goes pretty smooth with a normal selection of songs and commentary. Hour #2 though includes some of James favorite songs and artists.

We hop eyou enjoy!



What a show. I had the opportunity again to host the show...alone. So you never know what'll happen.


We start the show with Gold City, then feature the Lore Family. The show includes other artists like:

The Isaacs

Joseph Habedank

Karen Peck and New River

The Martin's

The Master's Three

and Many More.


We also send out "He Chose the Nails" by request by T. Strickland in Tennessee.


We were able to get into the booth at NQC 2017 with the one and only Randa Jordan. Josh comes in right at the end but decides he wants to just observe.

Take a listen to the show and enjoy the music, also if you can "try" to enjoy Reggie and James... Sorry i couldn't hep it.


The music is again top of the line and the guys have a great time. 


Five months into this "Podcasting" thing and we are full steam ahead.

It all started with my hoping and dreaming about a few things on the steps of my daughter's school. A cat named Reggie came by to see what was up and I threw the idea out to him about starting a podcast about Southern Gospel Music.

After the initial question and answer session between Reggie and I, we were both excited to take the next step. We had a few pieces of equipment, we had a general knowledge of the music, we had... we had.. we had what we needed to get started...except a third body.

We wanted to have three people behind the mics, so, we sought out Adam McCown. He was on board, he had recorded an album himself, he loved SG music, and we were all great friends, so away we went.
Soon, we all met together and recorded a few episodes, they were great, the technical side of it was lacking just a little but it soon got better and we hit the ground running. Unfortunately, Adam had to leave, So Reggie and I moved on, as an owner of a landscaping business he was overwhelmed by the busyness of his business. (See what I did there?)

Of course, schedules oftentimes get discombobulated and I have had to do a few recordings alone, but all-in-all, Reggie and I have been right there together. Reggie keeps us laughing and informing all of us about his wife and father-in-law and how they have "Sang with them", or "Sung that song". He also keeps us going with some color commentary. James too tries to keep it light but tries to steer the shows in the right direction. Regardless though of which one chases a rabbit, cracks the joke, or completely goofs on air, we have a great time.

We have met some of the biggest names in Southern Gospel Music, but we've also met some of the most humble folks in the business (by the way most of those are the same people). We have been astonished by the down to earth conversations we've had with many of these artists that have sung on stages across the globe, in awards shows such as the Grammy's, the Dove Awards, and of Course the Singing News Fan Awards at the National Quartet Convention.

Thank you for listening and sharing.

God Bless and let's keep on together!

James Burke
