It’s a special Advent & Christmas music episode of the Catholic Playlist show! Episode #20 serves up a rich selection of contemporary, and a little classical, Advent music to get your preparation for the coming of the Lord off to a great start. Plus we are pleased to premiere the latest single from Tori Harris called “Fields of Gold”!
We are pleased to be able to feature Marian Grace with several song selections from their new Advent and Christmas season album “In the Bleak Midwinter”, as well as songs from Matt Maher, Ike Ndolo, Josh Blakesley, Curtis Stephan and more. On the classical side, we included “Gabriel’s Message” from the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles and their hit album from 2012, “Advent at Ephesus”.
Enjoy and have a blessed and holy Advent season!
So excited to be able to premiere on Catholic radio the new song “Fields of Gold” from Tori Harris in the next Catholic Playlist show this weekend! Tori Harris is a rapidly emerging Catholic recording artist and we are so pleased that she is allowing us to play her song. The song and video are being released on December 6, so check out the video at our YouTube channel and buy her music too!
As friends and families come together this week to celebrate Thanksgiving (and perhaps do a little bit of shopping on Black Friday), we would like to take a moment here to give thanks for all of our great listeners out there. Without you we wouldn’t be enjoying all this music and finding great new music! In fact, who will you discover in episode #19 of the Catholic Playlist?
Our featured artist this show is The Thirsting as we hear 2 songs from them, “Love is Blind” and “Stepping Into the Day”, and a new artist to the show is Kelly Pease with “Save Us Soon”. We mix in some songs from Matt Maher, Sarah Hart, Full Armor Band, Marie Miller, Audrey Assad and more, wrapping up with our first Advent song for the season, “Awake, O Sleeper” from Ike Ndolo.
As always, please support these artists and their work by buying their music and by sharing the Catholic Playlist show. Everyone will benefit and we will have more music to play in the future!
Tune in every Tuesday night at 8pm ET for Holy Family Radio LIVE, hosted by Lincoln Bramlage and Jeff Compton. Join us as we reflect on Scripture, talk to a variety of guests, discuss current events from a Catholic perspective and keep you informed of what’s happening in the local area and the diocese. Encores of the live show are broadcast on Friday at 2pm and Saturday at 7pm, or listen here!
Another great collection of songs and performers await in Episode #18 of the Catholic Playlist show. New songs from Greg & Lizzy, John Finch and Sarah Hart highlight some new sounds in the Playlist, and we’re so pleased to be bringing you a fresh new studio recording of “River Road” from L’Angelus band! In fact, in the middle segment of the show we string together 2 from L’Angelus followed by “Wade in the Water” from Ike Ndolo to round out a foot stompin’ hand raisin’ good time. The last segment starts off with a fun riff from David Casper, followed by SimplyRC, Tori Harris’ “Face to Face” and “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” from John Finch to raise your spirit to adoration of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
We encourage all of our listeners to please support these artists in their ministries by buying their music, all of which can be found either on iTunes or Amazon. Your support means that they can keep on making great music, which means we can keep playing it and reach more souls for Christ.
Join us in the coming weeks for great Advent music!
We are pleased to help promote a special fundraising event – 5 screenings of the new movie ‘MARY OF NAZARETH’. All of the proceeds from the ticket sales after the licensing and theater rental fees are paid goes to the Saint George World Youth Day group to help finance the cost of sending local youths from the parishes of St John the Baptist (Glandorf), St Michael (Kalida) and Sts Peter & Paul (Ottawa) to Krakow, Poland to attend the 2016 World Youth Day.
Ticket prices for this limited engagement showing of the MARY OF NAZARETH movie are $8 when purchased online or $6 at the local parish office (Sts Peter & Paul in Ottawa, St John the Baptist in Glandorf, and St Michael in Kalida). Click here or the image to purchase tickets or check out the details further.
MARY OF NAZARETH is an epic new motion picture on the life of Mary, mother of Christ, from her childhood through the Resurrection of Jesus. This full length feature film about Our Lady, shot in English in High Definition, was filmed in Europe in very authentic locales with outstanding cinematography, a strong cast, and a majestic music score. Actress Alissa Jung gives a very beautiful, compelling and inspired portrayal of Mary. Pope Benedict XVI had the opportunity to screen this film in the Apostolic Palace, and was touched by the portrayal of Mary so vividly captured on film.
Hello everyone! Sorry for the inconvenience, but we’re in the middle of reconstructing our site. Normally we’d do a redesign in the background and then switch to the new site when it was ready, however some hackers decided they wanted to take over our site before we were ready.
You can still listen to a live radio feed over in the right hand column, and you can also listen to the latest Catholic Playlist show too.
Come back frequently as we start putting the pieces back into place.
