New artists added for the months of January and February

What a privilege it has been to be Music Director here at Encouraging Radio for almost an entire year (I began mid-March of last year) and to have had the opportunity to learn about and add so many amazing Christian artists to our new music catalog. I’m so grateful and look forward to continuing my quest!

For the months of January and February, we added many wonderful, new artists that I’m excited to be sharing with all of you. They are….Vertical Church Band, Abandon, Jared Anderson, Jon Guerra, Martin Smith, Woodside Worship, another new song by Francesca Battistelli, Sherry Muchira, Bifrost Arts, Sixteen Cities, Aaron Keyes, BridgeCity, Will Retherford, and JJ Heller.

Hope you are already enjoying all these new additions and please let us know how we can make your listening experience an even more meaningful one. We are always open to new suggestions. Thanks for tuning in!

A significant software upgrade

Over the weekend, we switched from a simple audio player to RadioDJ, a professional radio automation system. We hope you like the results! On the left is the current schedule ready to air. On the right, a listing of all the files available to schedule.

We are blessed to have so many wonderful artists who have provided their music royalty-free for our inspiration. And we are blessed by software publishers who help to make it all sound good.

An update for the months of November and December

First off, hope everyone is off to a great start this New Year!

Here at Encouraging Radio, we are greatly anticipating 2015 to be a year full of God’s goodness and looking forward to His mercies that are new every morning….as well as exciting new additions to our music catalog. We love discovering new music and passing it along to our listeners!

With that said, let’s take a look at the new music that was added for the months of November and December of last year. A lot can happen in just 2 months! We added many new artists to our playlist including Shelly E. Johnson, For The Fatherless, Lauren Daigle, Page CXVI, Jason Gray, Aaron Shust, Unspoken, Carrollton, Chris August, Lindsay McCaul, Blanca, OBB, Natalie Grant, Plumb, The Royal Royal, Cloverton, Future Of Forestry, Jill Paquette DeZwaan, and Shelly Moore. Also, we added new songs by Family Force 5, Hello Industry, Love & The Outcome, Andrew Peterson, for KING & COUNTRY, and NEEDTOBREATHE.

We hope that you’re enjoying these new additions and hope that you will let us know if there are any artists that you would personally like to see us add in the future. We are always open to any suggestions that you may have that might help make your listening experience…well,…more Encouraging. 🙂

May everyone have a happy, healthy, blessed New Year!

Happy New Year!

Encouraging Radio has been playing Christian music and messages since 2011, but 2014 was the year it transformed from mediocre (to be kind) into something that is truly a blessing to people. If our programming has blessed you, let your friends know we are here to serve them as well. Thank you for your support in 2014! And, we are not done yet! We will continue to make Encouraging Radio better in 2015 as well. May God richly bless you and your family in the new year!

An update for the month of October

So…..most of last month was spent on putting together a new Christmas music catalog for Encouraging Radio for everyone to begin enjoying end of November! That was a really fun project. 🙂

The artists who had Christmas songs that we were able to add to the new Christmas music catalog are the following….Anthony Skinner, Chris August, Everfound, for KING & COUNTRY, Sidewalk Prophets, Meredith Andrews, Love & The Outcome, Big Daddy Weave, Francesca Battistelli, Dara Maclean, NEEDTOBREATHE, Jason Castro, Rob Higginbotham, The Lovespies, Jars Of Clay, Andy Gullahorn, John Waller, Ayiesha Woods, Christa Wells, Andrew Peterson, Carolyn Arends, Esterlyn, Matt Papa, Robbie Seay Band, Citizens & Saints, Brady Toops, Jenny & Tyler, Andy Cherry, Fellowship Creative, Koine’, Sara Groves, Family Force 5, and instrumentals by Invincible Czars, Mano Reza, and Mister Link.

And, we even managed to still add 2 new artists to our regular music catalog which were Kate Hurley and Brightwork. I imagine you have already been enjoying the 2 new additions. They both bring something really special to the table in their own unique ways.

Anyway, as always, if you have any suggestions or recommendations on how we can make your listening experience a more meaningful one, please let us know!
