Just wanted to let you know that I found your "Old Fashioned Christian Music Radio" website, went straight to the Live365 player link, and have been enjoying the music sense then. Well, I turn off the computer now and then... but ya get the idea. I've got it bookmarked and really appreciate the hymns.
Appreciative,

Subject: (From a Music Store Customer and Listener)

Dear Mr. Michael M. McFadden, 

First of all I want to tell you that I am very happy I found oldchristianmusic.com. Friend of mine told me about your website. For a long time I tried to find good Christian music but I had no success. So I gave up trying. Most Christian radio stations I heard, are playing worldly "Christian" music, that I just can not listen to. I am originally from Ukraine, and to be honest a lot of secular songs you would here on the radio there sound better than so called contemporary  "Christian" music. It seems like we live in a time  when everything pure and holy is shunned and thought as outdated.  But for my surprise there are still people like you that value old Christian music full of God glorifying lyrics and beautiful melodies....
Thank you very much for your good work and may the Lord richly bless you and your ministry

Sincerely,
Ruslan and Igor. (Guilderland Center, NY)

I just want you to know how much I enjoy your radio station.  It is so
uplifting!  It has pretty much become the background for my home, as I have
it on almost all the time!  Thank you for allowing God to bless through you.

Subject: What's up?

I find it ironic that I found your website while looking up one of my
favorite Christian bands, East West.  While looking at your website I
became deeply disturbed at some of the stuff I was reading.  I believe
God uses music to reach the lost.  I don't understand your hatred for
rock music.  Do you consider people who listen to rock music not
Christians?  If you do that is insane.  You said it yourself in some of
your sermons against rock music that only Jesus Christ can save you.  I
agree with this.  However, if Jesus Christ saves us, then how can rock
music lead us astray if only Jesus can save us.

What a blessing to find some real Christian music!  I have for a long tie written off hope to find such a station as most of my acquaintances who listen to this sort of good music, don't even have a computer and have no idea about MP3s or streaming internet audio. I often am at my computer and I listen to the 3 CDs I have of good worshipful music, and am so blessed to have encountered your music.  I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. Let us make music in our hearts to the one who deserves all praise and glory!

Subject: A Note Of Thanks

Thank you so very much for your faithfulness to the Lord.  Like you, I am much distressed by what today passes as 'Christian' music.  Sadly, many of our youth are being led into a shallow, compromising, easy believism because of it.  This I feel is due to the similarity of (CCM) 'Contemporary Christian Music' and the rock music of 'the world'. I was saved in 1947 and have rejoiced and marveled in the marvelous and matchless Grace of my Lord and Saviour ever since, even though I sadly have failed Him so many times. There was a 'difference' between the Christian and 'the world' that could be seen. Sadly, today many pulpits have entered into a compromising and accommodating message to not offend! May God help us to turn back to Him and may He find us faithful in the days yet remaining! Thank you again that you seek to honour Him with music that 'has a message'!  May God bless you mightily in your ministry.

Subject: Yes!

I've been listening to live 365 on the 'Net for 3 or 4 months. When I first installed the program, I went through and picked out about 10 stations that I thought I would like to listen to. Of those stations, four of them were either Christian or Gospel stations. I set it up to "random" play. I soon realized that after five or ten minutes of "something else" that I would always go back and change to that Old Time Christian Radio. Now, when I am on the 'Net I listen to your station at least 90% of the time. Thank you for all that you do for Him! I read your "Broadcaster Profile" and I am glad that you take a stand on "Old Fashioned" things. I am not an Independent Baptist, but I am a Christian, and I believe the Bible to be the true inspired Word. Keep on keeping on!

Dear Michael,
I just wanted to send you a note of encouragement and thank you for the blessing of your Web-radio station. I have longed for the music presentation you provide. Every song seems to be thoughtfully and carefully selected. It has provided many hours of comforting and edifying listening as I work on my computer or just sit and listen. Please keep up this good work and let me know how I can help you continue this unique and much needed ministry. I'm trying to get every one I know to listen as well.

Thanks for the good service, Michael. My order arrived yesterday. It was shipped Saturday and arrived Monday. I don't see how it could get any better.

I love your station and the WONDERFUL music. It was what I was raised on and believe it is essential to our souls. I am a former pastor and told a friend of mine who is still pastoring, that I did not need to hear another sermon till I go to heaven. But that I dry up in my soul without this kind of music.

I still love good sermons, but it is nearly impossible to find a church who has not sold out to the garbage that is used in today's church services.

Subject: Just discovered your station
I discovered your station about half an hour ago, and I had to say thank you. I have missed truly CHRISTIAN music so much! My church changed its musical format several years ago It didn't go all the way to "Christian rock" (contradiction in terms!) but it went far enough. And the Christian radio stations up here in Michigan have compromised even more. I can't say how I've missed the kind of music I grew up with; finding it at oldchristianradio has been a real treat. Thanks.

Subject: King James Bible Song
Dear Michael McFadden,

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the great majority of the music that you provide. I do not care to use the Live 365 software to listen, so I do not participate in your on/off method of song rating. I just like all the old hymns of worship and faith... and a few from more recent years.

I accepted the Lord in 1951 at the age of three, but did not totally surrender everything to my heavenly Father, in order to allow Him to be truly Lord of my life, until I was 18 - 19.
It was about that time that the Living Letters, Living Prophecy, etc. were popular and my mother had been giving me the various copies. As a youth I had tried to read the bible and have devotions as I was told but I could never really get a lot out of it as a whole, only the popular bits and pieces that I memorized from the King James version.
It was soon after totally surrendering my whole life to God that my mother gave me a copy of the entire Living Bible. The Holy Spirit had been ministering to me through the Living Psalms and Gospels, but when I got the completed paraphrase of Godís Word I started in Genesis and read the entire Living Bible through just as most read a novel. I would read for hours and not want to put it down.
Each time I read it through, it was like putting a puzzle together, I would find new pieces of what God was trying to get across and a greater hunger to understand concepts that I just didnít understand.

From there God placed first in my hands The Amplified Bible and finally The New English Bible... each of them, in their time, and through the instruction of the Holy Spirit, leading me into a clearer understanding of God's desire for us to have hearts dead to the things of the flesh and this world, now alive with a vibrant love for our Heavenly Father and the things that are important to Him; all made available to us through the power and example of His Son Jesus the Christ, His life, death and resurrection!

Needless to say, it hurts very much to hear in a song on your site, the singer telling me that any other translation of the Bible than the King James is from Satan. New Life has been breathed into me through the instructive power of the Holy Spirit, using the words from various translations/paraphrases of Godís Original Words written in Hebrew and Greek.

The Pharisees said, in Mark 3, that the power that Jesus used to drive out spirits was from Satan.

Is the song writer and singer (and you, as you broadcast the song) telling me that the words (the various Bible translations/paraphrases) that influenced, and lead to such a radical change in my life from Satan?????

In His Love,
Tim

Dear Michael,

I just want to thank you for your wonderful music. I am a missionary working in NY City and pastor two Russian speaking Baptist churches. I serve under the Conservative Baptists and am on the VERY conservative side. Here in the NY City area is is very difficult to find churches that have both good preaching and good music. My wife and I have gotten in the habit of carrying earplugs with us when we visit other churches because we can't stand the noise that they call music. In our Russian speaking congregations we use only hymns and rarely any other music. Our people love to sing--even if they can't. They love hymns. One of the churches is very small and meets in an apartment. No one can play a musical instrument, but we still praise the Lord with the hymns.

May the Lord continue to bless you richly as you reach out and bless many others with your Godly music.

Subject: Keep up the great work on your web site.
Hi Michael,

I commend you for the job that you have been doing on this website. I listen to Old Christian Radio a lot while I am here at my school. I have constant high speed internet connection, so I can listen to your station a lot.

I got saved 2 years ago at the age of 18 during my senior year of high school. Before I was saved, I did partake in the world's music and their culture. To be honest with you, that type of life in the world is very empty and unfulfilling.

The music on your website is refreshing. I do not know of too many young adult Christians who play this music in their cars or in their homes. Most listen to the dreaded CCM.

I have been alienated some times for my stance on CCM. I just do not support contemporary praise music. I have been to some college "Christian" meetings where you see the band (electric guitars, drum set, etc) and those meetings are just not what I call biblical worship. The lights are off (just like a concert), and you see people moving to the music. The theology is too lovey dovey and the focus is more on the beat and rhythm of the music rather than the lyrics (which are pretty shallow theologically anyways)

The difference I see between your music and the contemporary praise music that young adults crave, is like comparing night and day.

The music you play is identical to the music that is played at my church. It is an independent fundamental Baptist church where the KJV is the preferred Bible, and the pastor is not afraid to be politically incorrect on issues.

God Bless you brother.

Your brother in Jesus Christ,
Donald

Subject: Michael McFadden's Music
Dear Brother Michael,

And I do mean brother! Our musical genes surely came from common parentage. (Could it be our common heavenly Father?) Yours is far and away with no close second the richest blend of the finest church music I have found since coming home from the mission field in late June 2001. I just became aware of it last night through a friend who knows of the pain I have suffered trying to adjust to what seems the inevitable fare most of our churches are offering.

I have found some musically good contemporary choruses with meaningful messages, and some with good messages, but so many of them are so narrowly focused on simple praise. The songs you provide are songs I have known since being a boy back in the 1930s. I sit with tears of blessing flowing down my cheeks.

With all of my heart I say, "Thank you!" The Lord make His face shine upon you, turn His face toward you, and give you peace. Your ministry IS appreciated.

Yours in His service,

Many thanks for your station that plays Christian Music. I am thankful that you have the station acceptable by internet. I spend many hours a week on my computer doing things for the church and working on my Sunday School lessons. While others in my family are watching TV I am glued to the computer and tune to Old Christian Radio. The first thing I usually do is tune in, so I have Christian Music going all the time I am on the computer. I have tuned in to other station in the past but only tune to Old Christian Radio now. The music is what I believe should be played on a Christian Radio Station. I missed the music when it was off the air due to a change in the web suppler. Again many thanks for the inspiring Christian Music. May God continue to bless and may you never change your music format.

In Christ,

A preacher friend told me about your music and I am so glad.
We are independent Baptist missionaries in Japan. We have no quality radio to listen to at all. The only English station is FEN from the military base and you know they don't honor God with their music.
We listen to tapes but they get old and wore out. Your station has a much better quality signal and sound then the other Fundamental stations I have been listening to on the internet.
Just wanted to say thanks for your labor of love. You are appreciated. In Japan high speed internet is less expensive than dialup so we will be tuned in to your music what a blessing.

Subject: Good Job
I am glad to see your station doing so well. I know a lot of older people will especially enjoy your station. And they are being shortchanged by all the other media. So, it's great that they will benefit from it. I trust younger people will also discover this great music.

I played a lot of this music in my 40 year career in broadcasting. I use to Internet to occasionally listen to the station I used to manage in the Midwest. I cringe at what they are playing now. The worst thing is the message today is not as strong as it used to be.

You may not appreciate the kind of Gospel music I love, but I thought I would tell you I am an Internet broadcaster too. I just launched my station. It features all Gospel quartet music. We just started getting listeners Friday. And it has been gratifying to see people clicking on.

I have met and worked with a lot of quartets and they are overall really great people. Some are so humble backstage it just floors me.

Well, may God bless you. I think you are doing more good that you will ever know. A lot of the big names in Christianity today are not doing nearly as much good as you are.

Thank you so much for the wonderful, inspirational and encouraging music you are playing on old Christian radio.co
We have been praying for over 20 years for someone, somewhere to revive, restore, repair the breach and great damage that contemporary Christian music has brought to the soul and spirit and culture of this generation.
Thank you so very much, keep up the great work. Heb. 10:6 Be encouraged, you are ministering to many who may never write, but are blessed never the less.
We live in Northern California, and though the North State is thought to be more conservative, we lack spiritual maturity and depth, especially in the music of our local Christian stations.
Thank you so very much, again. Keep up the wonderful, missionary, equipping, encouraging, inspiring work.

...

Hi Michael

Praise God for your music! Don't change any of it. Even if some people criticize it.

I read one listener's criticism of some of your music. That really grieved me. The world is going to Hell and we are spending our time criticizing one another for our taste in music.

In the days of Charles Finney, a lot of fundamentalists would not have an organ in their church. They said it was worldly and it would lead churches into Romanism. The organ won out, and now most fundamental churches use "worldly" organ music that is leading them to Romanism!

How do we define "bad" music? One preacher friend of mine would not allow a guitar in church because it reminded him of Pentecostalism. Another friend, who used to play the accordian for drinking parties before he was saved, denounced all accordian music as the music of the devil. Maybe we should stop singing "Silent Night" because it was written by a Romanist priest so they could sing it at an idolatrous mass. It's funny how we say the music we like is Scriptural, and we say the music we don't like is unscriptural.

I'm listening to Jim Roberts and Norma Zimmer singing "Almost Persuaded" on your station as I write this. I remember when they used to sing for Lawrence Welk on TV, the champaign guy who liked the bubbles. I'm sure that some people would criticize you for playing this if they knew where Jim Roberts and Norma Zimmer came from. And Dino Kartsonakis--he was the piano player for Kathryn Kuhlman, the famous faith healer! I don't care about that; I'm just blessed by their music.

90 years ago there was considerable criticism of the contemporary hymn, "Christ Receiveth Sinful Men," because it was syncopated. The contemporary music of the day had no part in the lives of a lot of Christians.

15 years ago I left a fellowship of preachers because they were spending an inordinate amount of time criticizing other men who were preaching the Word in their meetings. I announced, "Brethren, you guys spend more time fighting than you spend soul winning. That's why your churches aren't growing. You can play your games. I'm going out to do the Great Commission."

Personally, I don't like most contemporary Christian music. That's why I like your station so much. It's a matter of taste. I don't think so-called "Christian Rock" is appropriate, but I'd be hard pressed to find something in Scripture that specifically deals with the subject, any more than the people of Finney's day could find Scripture against organs.

God bless and have a SUPER day!!

Thank you, Michael, for providing such a wonderful blessing to so many people like myself who appreciate the old tried and true ways. Your music ministry is fantastic. I have searched for years to find a station that plays the old traditional hymns and gospel music. It is so refreshing to the soul to get away from the secular noise and annoying worldly music. May God richly bless you.

A listener letter from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Hello Michael,
I have been listening to your wonderful Christian radio station for about a month now. It has been water to a very thirsty soul. I am a musician (piano and voice) myself, and I don't like a lot of the newer Christian contemporary "rock" music. This has been what I have been looking for for many years.

When I opened your site tonight I was delighted to see that you are now selling some of your music...

Thank you for all your hard work in putting this radio station on the web.

Yours in Christ,

A listener letter (location unknown) sent with the subject title: How Dare You?!?!?
Good morning, Michael,
I actually want to tell you what a very great blessing your radio station is. The"How Dare You?" subject heading is in reference to the fact that I am not getting much done now because I enjoy the music so much. Of course, this is all said with tongue-in-cheek but I am serious about the fact that I appreciate your selection of music very much. I spent some time browsing through your various webpages (at the same time as listening, of course) and find that you and I have much in common especially in the areas of both of us attending a Bible-believing Independent Baptist Church....I'll close by thanking you from the bottom of my heart for making music that honors our wonderful Lord available literally to the entire world.
Have a wonderful, Christ-filled day.

From a new listener in North Carolina...
Michael, I found your site while looking for information on Derric Johnson to help find some arrangements for a mixed ensemble at our church for the coming year. You are doing a great service and providing a great ministry at the same time. And your choice in Christian music is right on target! I forwarded your web address to our ensemble and also to my mom who we just got set-up on the internet. Your playlist has many groups I have loved to hear through the years and some I can't wait to listen to. God bless you,

Dear Michael,

A listener in Chesapeake, Virginia writes..Once again thank you for your music. I enjoy it so much in my office, especially the mix of different music styles. No one will ever like "every" selection, but it is a breath of fresh air from what most so-called "Christian Music" stations are pumping to the air waves. Even some conservative "old fashioned" Christian stations play music that has that "Sinatra" styling--which sounds like a night club act. Keep up the good work!

From a gratefu1 listener from Omaha Nebraska
...

Dear Michael,

Like others I want to say "thanks" for your station. I listen frequently and am listening as I write. I direct a Bible correspondence course ministry with Source of Light Ministries International out of Madison, Georgia. My wife and I direct the branch in Omaha, Nebraska.

I do so love the music you play, even some of the moderately contemporary music from the 1970's is still very good. Music then still had an emphasis on melody and good words. Keep up the good work. It's obvious that you are blessing listeners around the world and I'm glad God has given you the opportunity to do this.

MY COMMENT: I love hearing from people who are grateful and thankful for what they have. There are many people out there who are too quick to complain when things are NOT exactly what they want. May God help us to learn to be more thankful and grateful for the things that God has ALREADY given us.

A listener in Sacramento, California offers his negative feedback concerning this station....
I was excited to find your radio station and have been listening off and on for about a month. However, I have been disheartened by a few of your selections. One selection. "Regeneration, Derric Johnson's--Jesus Paid It All--4:20--Crimson Bridge", prompted me to write this letter. This would of been considered CCM at the time it was written and in my opinion is that it steps over the line of Christ honoring music. Just because a song is old fashioned (written some time in the past) does not mean it is conservative.

A quick example before I go. Once you teach children the difference between right and wrong music it is very easy for them to discern between the two. There have been several occasions while listening to this station that my boys have advised daddy and mommy that the song currently playing was "bad music". Don't let this email be a discouragement and please understand this letter is being written in a correct spirit. I'm just giving my feedback as a listener. I would be remiss if I didn't provide this feedback.

I appreciate what this station is doing.

I do so love your internet radio station. It brings back a flood of memories listening to Family Radio (WFME) way back when. They are the hymns my heart knows by heart.

Mike

Your music God has put on your heart couldnt get better. I like the conservative singing and God exhalting way you put them together. Stay healthy, I need this stuff in Taiwan. I am also a worker, teaching English and have an English congregation in Taiwan. After living and doing the same in Japan the move is not easy but Gods grace is always enough. Please have your church pray for our daughter she has a rare spinal disease. We do not need finances, God has always given me good jobs in Asia. We need prayer as where to go to bring her to the hospital. May God bless your effort in this ministry.

A listener from Ontario, Canada comments on the music quality of this station
...
I'm 40 years old and have downloaded 100's of songs (actually in the thousands) from the likes of napster and clones. Your station, however, is a very relaxing, welcome relief from a lot of christian contemporary garbage out there today. I've found a new appreciation for the lyrics of the older hymns that I use to give my parents a hard time about listening to. They certainly have a lot more depth and meaning. A preacher and part time farmer once joked that a hymn says 'my cow got out the barn' while the christian contemporary version went something like ' my cow, my cow, my cow, my cow, got got got got outta the barn outta the barn outta the barn' :) Thanks for making this available.
Yours in him,

Hi Michael

I really appreciate your ministry with great music. I work at home - most of my work is on the Internet, so I listen to your music a lot when I am working. The music you play is like an oasis in the desert.

It was great to hear the John Marshall Family Singers again. They used to come to my church when I pastored in Canada over 20 years ago. They still sound great.

God bless and have a SUPER day!!

Dear Sir,

I like your pick of Christian music. I am a younger person and I do not like Christian Contemporary. It's Rock music whatever you call it. I like George Beverly Shea and the older artist you play. Thanks a million! I give Jesus all the praise and Glory because he is worthy of our praise..

Thanks again,

Comments of praise from a listener in Austin, TX...
(186 miles from my station location in Grand Prairie, TX)

Hi, Michael,
I got chill bumps as I read your introduction to new listeners! I'm very excited at my 'new find'...I have the freedom to listen to internet radio as I work but have had a hard time finding really good 'stuff'. I'm from an Independent Baptist missionary family, so, now in my early fifties, I'm very hard to please in Christian music.

Thank you for what you're doing! May God bless this effort!

Now, can you tell me how to pick up your station in my car? I have a 6 CD changer full of the Heritage Singers, and that's doing a pretty good job, but I just hate leaving the office when I'm enjoying the music so much! ('Sick, huh?)

Well, thanks, again, and have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season, always remembering that HE is the reason for 'THE SEASON'!

MY COMMENT: If you want to get this station in your car... You would have to get a "Mobile internet" connection and route the sound from your laptop through your car stereo. (Via cassette adapter or small FM transmitter that your FM car stereo can tune into. A car stereo dealer can help you with that.)
Speaking of getting this broadcast on "airwave radio stations"... I have a lot "Texas Size" plans in the distant future in getting this station's music on 100's of stations across North America. Stay Tuned and keep listening.

A listener from Alabama comments on this website....
Hello Mr. Michael,

My name is Dan Presley. I am from Selma Alabama. Your web site is very impressive. Keep up the good work with it. I am getting sick and tired of all the mush that is coming out from the CCM industry. That is why, I have been buying mostly Hymn CD's lately... Please sir, help me get rid of this mush that is coming out of the Gospel music industry. I am sick, tired and bored to death with it. This industry needs a revival really bad. Help me bring one. Too much heresy and mush coming out. I may not be a fundamentalist but I too am sick and tired of being exposed to heresy on a daily basis.

With God's Blessings--Dan Presley

MY COMMENT: I have a lot planned both near and far into the future to combat this evil that has taken over the airwaves of North America. This station's fast growth (given the very limited promotion I've given it) is indication of strong interest in this type of music I'm playing. Stay tuned and keep listening.

A Missionary from Tokyo, Japan writes...
I "stumbled" on to your web page this week when I was doing a search for another station. We just installed DSL this month and what a privilege to listen to the "oldies" of Christian music. Tells you a little of my age, but I am really enjoying listening to your station. May the Lord bless and help you to continue to provide this wonderful music for Christians around the world.
