UTR Launch Party with Andrew Peterson
On Nov. 13, 2008, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Andrew Peterson performed a special concert at the studios of Back to God Ministries Int'l (BTGMI) to help launch the new music-based radio program Under The Radar . "It's gourmet music – thoughtful, inspirational, & artistic," says host Dave Trout. "Isn't it scary that outside of a song or two, artists like Rich Mullins, Derek Webb, and Jill Phillips are not considered 'Radio Friendly'? On UTR we plan to play the artists & songs that the world needs to hear." 36 radio outlets have already signed up to air UTR, which will also be made available as a podcast through iTunes. "There's a wave of Christian artists who are trying to write music that matters 50 years from now," said Andrew Peterson. "They're not trying to write hits for radio. It's great to have a program like Under the Radar to find and support these underdog artists."
