How To Support Old Christian Radio

Old Christian Radio Mission Statement
Thank you for visiting my website and listening to Old Christian Radio. .

I've created a unique kind of Christian radio station on the internet...
Old Christian Radio is a station that plays great conservative Christian music with NO "Christian Rock".

The main mission for this station's existence is to be a blessing to the Christian community by playing Godly Christian music that doesn't sound like the devil's music.

The musical emphasis on this station is of a Godly spiritual nature.
Music that appeals mainly to "the flesh" is NOT played here)

This station's music format is: Sacred/Traditional Christian music with NO outside programming.

My other website http://www.oldchristianmusic.com sells part of the music that is played on Old Christian Radio.

Old Christian Radio is commercial free and listener supported.

A Brief history on Old Christian Radio (OCR) -- Updated and revised April 26, 2021.
Old Christian Radio began as an experimental station on March 7, 2000 as a "free station" on the Live365.com platform. While on Live365, Old Christian Radio emerged as one of their top 15 stations with over 50,000 monthly listeners. 

As a Live365 station, I was very limited in what I was allowed to do with OCR
Things like... I can't get revenue from ads. I can only accept donations for OCR to help pay Live365 fees for an ad free stream and an "ad free" Live 365 player window that launches from the OCR site.. I can only earn revenue from my online music store that sold CDs of music played on OCR.. (They can earn revenue from banner ads displayed on the Live365 player window launched from their website.).

Everything changed when Live 365 went bankrupt and shut down on February 1, 2016  -- This was partly due to the changes in how Sound Exchange web radio royalties were calculated (per listener per song vs. % of revenue.). (FYI: Terrestrial stations pay strictly on % of revenue and station audience size to ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC.  -- 501(c)3 terrestrial stations pay next to nothing in music royalties.)

After Live365 died, I gained complete ownership and control of Old Christian Radio. -- I got my own licensing to run as a "Stand Alone" station. Since OCR is NOT a 501(c)3 non-profit station, I had to license as a commercial station and pay commercial rates. -- In short, I'm not limited by the rules  that non-commercial stations have to follow to keep their "non-commercial" tax exempt status.

OCR was officially re-launched on March 1, 2018 on the Radio.co platform as a "stand alone" station (corrected.)
I had to start all over again and rebuild my audience from "ground zero," hoping that my old loyal listeners would find me again.

OCR now has apps available for Apple and android phones. OCR is on ALEXA too. OCR is becoming increasingly available on a growing list of other platforms. -- None of this would have been possible if OCR was still on Live365.

Please allow me to introduce myself... (My family picture is at the bottom of this web page.)
My name is Michael McFadden. I live in Arlington, Texas. I'm an Independent Baptist. I've been saved since March 1991. I am married and I have two children. I am member of Trinity Baptist Church of Arlington, TX (This church is an Independent conservative Baptist Church which uses only the KJV 1611 Bible.)

 In March 2010, I met my wife online at www.christianfilipina.com 
 I narrowed my search to ONLY Baptist ladies and went from there. I ended up finding the lady that God wanted me to marry.

After a long while of communicating,  I went to the Philippines and married her in May 2011. (She is also a Baptist.)

When I was young, I had a long standing interest in radio. Radio was a fascinating field to me. I dreamed that I'd be on radio someday broadcasting good Christian music. I've never liked what is called today's (worldly) "Christian music" and "Christian living". Because of what I've seen in many churches, in my younger years, I have resisted many opportunities to get saved. When I became an adult; I believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and got saved from my sins. I told God that I don't want any part of that phony, worldly Christianity being practiced today. I decided to become a "conservative Christian" (as in the way that Jesus would want me to live) in how I live my life and in the music I listen to.
