| From the broadcast
the weekend of June 30th & July 1st, 2012:
What can one say about that new
"Jubilee 3" recording except....they've done it again! Greater
Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers have once again come
together to create a CD that is enjoyable listening for any long-time Southern
Gospel music fan and even for someone just discovering the genre. These three
groups were our Featured Artists (as the Jubilee gang) our this broadcast.
Although most of the songs were redone classics, Jim Brady's new song,
"Every Cry Is Heard," is a wonderful song of assurance that both seems
timely and yet fit well among the classics.
The Jubilee 3 CD featured on this program is available from our mailorder
service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. You can order easily

year has seen an unusual number of songs from Southern Gospel artists about
America and the Christian faith that has, since its founding, made it great.
On this broadcast (as heard in the USA), we included several of those
songs by such groups as Legacy Five, the Triumphant Quartet,
Driven, the Greenes, and a very special prayer set to music
by Laverne Tripp. This seemed to be an especially appropriate time
to include these because of the 4th of July holiday. Obviously, all of this
is a reaction to developments over the past several years in this nation
developments which have made all the more obvious this society's
accelerating fall away from God and His eternal precepts.
Listeners outside of the USA (and listeners on Sirius/XM
satellite radio) did not hear the America-related songs referenced above.
Worldwide listeners, instead, heard a salute to Canadian artists, including
an Artist Spotlight with the Torchmen (which we hope to repeat on
the full network later this summer) and a visit with High Valley.
This was the first time we have ever split the program in this way, but it
reflects the growing number of non-USA stations carrying The Gospel
Greats, especially in Canada, the United Kingdom and even the Philippines.
