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.

(From a Music Store Customer and Listener)
Dear Mr. Michael M.
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holy is shunned and thought as outdated.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

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
your sermons against rock music that only Jesus Christ can save you.
agree with this. However, if Jesus Christ saves us, then how can
music lead us astray if only Jesus can save us.

I thank God I Stumbled Across Your Radio
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!

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.

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

I do so love the music you play, even

still had an emphasis on melody and
words. Keep up the good work. It's

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.

I was excited to find your radio station

a month. However, I have been disheartened
by a few of your selections. One selection.

some time in the past) does not mean it is
A quick example before I go. Once you

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

email be a discouragement and please understand
this letter is being written in a correct
spirit. I'm just giving my feedback as a

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