Producer Notes:

In a 1992 interview, Rich Mullins shared his mission.  It wasn't to evangelize.  It wasn't to raise funds for a charity.  It wasn't to sell the most albums.  His simple mission was this: to write good songs.  Wow.  At a time when most CCM artists mearly thought of their music as a means to some other "higher" agenda, Rich knew something very few did - that if God wired you to be a songwriter and a true artist, then creating well-crafted art was the best way to honor God.  Rich is one of those artists who is the definition of "gourmet music."  Over the course of 2 years, I interviewed several artists to get their thoughts on the legacy and impact of Rich and his music.  It culminated in this, a 3-part tribute to Mr. Mullins, which to this day I am so proud of how it turned out.  They stick out to me (and to many others who have told me) as one of UTR's crowning acheivements in radio production.  I'm excited to use this summer hiatus to revisit all 3 weeks of this tribute.  Feel free to share below a favorite Rich Mullins memory, song, or personal connection.  (Dave)

Great show!  I’d also recommend the Chris Rice version of Calling Out Your Name.  That’s what introduced me to Rich Mullins.
