Radio 1

Tony Gish

We live in a fast paced world. High Speed low frag as one of my friends always says. We have super fast internet, cell phones, Ipads, and data coming in at us from each direction at a 100 million Kb per second ( figuratively speaking). From sun up until sun down and really, 24 hours a day. Information from texts, email notices and alerts. News and weather updates and don’t forget Facebook notifications. It’s almost never ending…But in reality, some times it’s good to slow down. To smell the roses. We all need to slow down. Agree? To slow down and remember about life and how important our short stay here is to ourselves and to others. Our spiritual well beings and to our soul…

Let me introduce you to Tony Gish and his weekly radio program “The Naked Adam Show“. It’s a 30 minute program that plays good music and has an encouraging word for each of us. He isn’t “preachy” so give it a listen… He is like a good neighbor that pats you on the back and tells you everything is going to be ok. We all need that pat on the back and that encouraging word. He doesn’t have all the answers but he shares about the person that does.

His radio program is updated weekly and I strongly encourage you to give it a listen. In fact, I have started listening to it daily while at work. The podcasts are archived so if you miss it Sunday morning at 10:30am on  WSON 96.5 FM, you can listen at your convenience from the website anytime or download the radio app. And go by his Facebook page and let him know you’re listening to his program. He would deeply appreciate hearing from you.

Also, if you don’t mind. Please like and share this article with all your friends! 🙂

Ten Questions with “Brian Psalms”

Recently James Lowe from Kickacts Magazine sat down with one of the very exciting artists on the scene. The following is a written interview we conducted with the artist.

 

image 3Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and your band and were you can be found at on the web.

You can find me on the wed at @brianpsalms for the twitter  on facebook at www.facebook.com/brian.psalms ,and we are working on the website and it will be when finished www.brianpsalms.com but it’s not ready yet.

 Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?

Stevie Wonder is my music hero, because his music just hits you in the heart.  I love how Jay Z has been able to stay in the game so long even at 40.  And there’s more, but I don’t feel like talking about them.

 Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

Just have fun. Music is suppose to be therapeutic, and yes you are suppose to per-fect your craft, but just have fun.

 

Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?

Actually, my first gig was a big one.  I wasn’t sure how the people were going to react to Christian rap, but they went crazy, and I got a lot of compliments on the lyrics.  I was performing Still I Stand Remix.

 

On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.

Really don’t have any worse gigs yet.

 

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs? 

I am an athlete and I love sports.  I love football, and basketball.

 

What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

I like the present hip hop scene because all the beats sound like their from Down South, and being from Texas that is right up my alley.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear… Like their hobbies or something like that…

I speak in tongues in my prayer life.  When I tell people that they always look at me funny unless their from a full gospel church.

 Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls… Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why? 

I watched the show when I was younger, but can’t quite remember the characters.

 

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

I hope people will give God a little time in their life.  All God wants from you is a relationship, so if you can, put a little time out for him.

Dear Friends and Partners,

car_nRight now I am facing the biggest challenge of my life. On Valentines day I was diagnosed with incurable Multiple Myeloma Cancer and given a 3-5 year window of time. In order to put this into remission and be ready for my Spring 2014 tour I must go into chemotherapy right away. I will be under 24/7 medical care for the next 9 months straight.

I’m determined to beat this and see you in concert. In 1976 I went to a Christian concert and heard the gospel set to music and received Christ. Since that time I’ve lead over 1 million people to Christ. Touring is expensive and necessary to bring the gospel where it’s needed the most. I believe there are other Carman’s out there waiting to find Jesus and use their talents for the lord. Maybe its your child, your friend, or maybe even you. With a successful fundraiser we will be coming and lives will be changed for sure.

Over the past 13 years, I recorded many “unreleased” songs. I’m now making those available alongside classic favorites. Plus all the Music and DVD’s will be available for download the moment you purchase them NO WAITING 4-6 WEEKS FOR THE MAIL ANYMORE.

You will have this music and these videos tonight to enjoy. Check out the giving levels below and the samples of the songs too. This will be a tour that will change lives just like this whole experience is changing mine. I’m passing on the blessing.

And in the meantime For 9 months from September to April I’ll be off the road in the fight of my life battling cancer. I’ve pre-recorded weekly video updates on the new CD but will be posting written updates as I’m able. Join me in this 9 month countdown to beat this dreaded disease with daily inspirational words from songs I have written posted on Facebook.

I’ve never needed your support more than I do now. Join the campaign as I’m believing God that at the end of this impossible journey I will stand on 100 stages starting this April and once again be “LIVE Across America!”

Michael Sweet interview from Powerline

This a great interview and the guy asked all the right questions. Michael Sweet is candid and open. I give him props for saying he hasn’t been in a christian record store in 20 years. I haven’t either. The music to me is unexciting and a copy of most secular bands. No one hardly stands out on their own…

Here is an excerpt.

I mean, do you think Christian rock is in a better place than it was 30 years ago?
Sweet: No. No, I don’t. I always view Christian rock and music differently than a lot of other people do. For saying these kinds of things I get referred to as a pompous jerk and someone who’s just not nice. But I speak from the heart and I am very open and very honest. I just think that a lot of times Christian rock is every bit — if not more so — a cookie cutter business. Sometimes I question whether any of these bands are really Christian. And I don’t mean that in a judgmental way. I just mean that in the sense that: ‘Oh wow, I couldn’t get a major recording deal, so I’m gonna go get a Christian deal. Because that’s easy.’ And you get so many of thee bands and you meet them one-on-one and you start having a conversation with them about religion or spirituality and they have no clue what you are talking about. They’re looking like deer in the headlights. And it’s like ‘Wow. Okay.’ And I’ve seen this personally. I’ve come across it personally — and I won’t mention names — and it’s kind of sad, the state of where we’re at. So many bands, clawing their way to the top, and fighting like it’s a competition. I listen to this band and then listen to the next band, and I couldn’t tell the two apart. So many bands sound the same. Every now and then there’s a special band that comes out and you’re like ‘Wow, they’re amazing.’ That’s few and far between, in my opinion. Groups like Switchfoot are amazing. They come out, you know who it is when you hear them, they have their own unique sound, like POD when they hit the scene. But not a lot of bands that come out have that kind of power and uniqueness and that originality.

Do you find that Christian record stores still carry a lot of the CDs?
Sweet: I don’t know. I haven’t stepped foot in a Christian record store in, I don’t know, maybe 20 years. So I’d definitely be the wrong guy to ask that question.
