was another of our all-Christmas music editions.
I'm so glad there's been such an increase in recent years in the amount
of great Christmas music available from Southern Gospel
artists. I love sharing it with you through the broadcast.
Because there are so many outstanding
new Christmas recordings this
year, we doubled-up on Featured Artists this time. On our
first hour, our Featured Artists were Triumphant Quartet
with songs from their new Christmas CD, "He Is Christmas."
I especially enjoyed their version of the Phil Cross classic, "Hope Has Hands,"
along with the Christmas version of "Hallelujah," which
tells the entire Gospel story.
On our second hour, the Featured
Artists were the Kingdom
They're no stranger to Christmas recordings. They've probably
done more than most other groups (if not any other
Rice explained that this is because they sing right
through the Christmas season at Dollywood. Their new
Christmas CD is called "Glory
To God In The Highest" and it includes a wealth of great
new (and classic) Christmas songs, as you heard.
Quartet's new CD featured on this program, as
well as the Kingdom
Heirs' new CD, are available from our mailorder

Another group with a brand new
Christmas CD this year are the Hyssongs
— a CD called "The
Hyssongs - Merry Christmas." Dell, Susan and Richard have a
chance to tell you a few things about their celebration at
Christmastime. And they had three outstanding new Christmas
songs, including the timely original song, "Christmas Is Still About That
Baby." By the way, I was privileged to help put
together a one-hour Christmas special for the Hyssongs called, "Celebrate Christmas with the
Hyssongs." Ask your local station if they'll be
carrying it this Christmas season. (It is unrelated to The Gospel
Greats program series.)
On the Headline Update I mentioned the new YouTube video series
Allegiance Trio is doing. Here's a link to their first episode.
the weekend of Dec. 3rd & 4th, 2016:
the first of four
all-Christmas editions of The Gospel Greats,
the fourth of which this year will be our "A
Gospel Christmas 2016" special on Christmas
weekend. The "crop" of new Christmas CDs by many of today's
top Southern Gospel artists is unusually large this year, so we have a
LOT of new music.
Our Featured Artists on this edition
provide a case in point.
Canton Junction has just released their very first
Christmas CD, "A Canton
Christmas." Traditional Christmas carols and new
Christmas songs all take on a special "Canton Junction" feel on this
recording, which was their goal. You heard us visiting with Matt Hagee, Casey Rivers, Tim
Duncan and Ryan
Seaton — an interview we conducted in their San Antonio,
Texas, studios. By the way, please don't let Tim Duncan's
favorite Christmas memory ("bottle
rockets down the chimney" or fireworks on the porch) give
you (or your kids)
Canton Junction's CD
featured on this program, "A
Canton Christmas," is available from our mailorder
service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to
order. You can order easily from our webstore by using this link to go directly to this item.
Our special guests on the Christmas
Spotlight segment were the Torchmen,
well-known as one of Canada's premier quartets. As you heard Mike Moran say, this
is their first Christmas recording in a very long time. (I think the last one was on
8-track tapes, but I could be wrong.) The Torchmen are
based in Southern Ontario, Canada. You heard from Mike and from Jon Hisey.
The two others are Jeff
Tritton and Sandy
MacGregor. More info about them can be found on
their website. Their Christmas
CD is available through Springside.com.
You heard me play two songs from a new Christmas "EP" by the Nelons called "A Very Nelon Christmas."
The "EP" (an old designation for "extended
which now simply means a recording with more than one song on it)
includes five songs. They had hoped to do a full CD, but just
ran out of time. I'm glad, though, that they did what they
did. By the way, the Booth Brothers had hoped to do a
Christmas CD this year, but they keep so busy that they, too, just ran
out of time. Maybe next year. Whenever it comes
it'll be good!

These "Current Information" listings are dated to
correspond to the program that is provided to stations to air on a
specific weekend. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a station may
inadvertantly air the wrong program—a week early or perhaps late. That
is why you might be hearing dated references on the program that don't
make sense, including references to future or outdated giveaways.
Fortunately, this kind of occurrance is very rare. But please
you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
