What was the best of the best music from last year? We countdown the Top 11 Gourmet Albums of 2017!

We didn’t plan on doing this episode. We’ve never done an audio companion for our Honorable Mentions list before. But we thought… WHY NOT?!

We’re celebrating the Christmas season with some well-crafted holiday songs by Josh Garrels, Caroline Cobb, Gungor, Jillian Edwards, The Gray Havens, and a dozen others.

We countdown our picks of the six best Christmas Albums released in 2017, including Waterdeep, Marc Martel, and… who else?

We began curating high-quality faith-infused music in November 2008. And for our 9th anniversary, the gift is actually for you… 16 songs crammed into one of our longest episodes ever. Enjoy songs by The Gray Havens, Madison Cunningham, 6’10, Andy Squyres, & more.

In the old days of “Under The Radar,” we had some rules in place that caused a lot of songs to get blacklisted. Today, the blacklist is gone and we celebrate the freedom by playing “uncensored” songs.

We are reminiscing and celebrating our early August music retreat Escape To The Lake 2017 – with live performances, testimonials, and a special cover of Tom Petty.

We share some of the picks from our 10-member Critics Panel of the best albums and songs from the first half of 2017.

The debut episode features songs released in the last 9 months. Money-back guarantee that you’ll hear at least one artist you’ve never heard before!
