Producer Notes:

A few other audio tributes for Rich Mullins have been produced over the years, but I truly believe that our 3-part special stands up as one of the best.  At some point, I had heard that John J. Thompson had some very funny and unique interaction with Rich, and was one of the last people to see Rich before he died.  The audio stories he was able to share for this show were beyond my expectations, and added a personal and very human touch when honoring Rich.  Songwriter & Producer Ben Shive also shared with me about how Rich's music had a big impact on him and his circle of artist-friends.  By providence, at a media convention, I was able to greet one of my radio heroes, Jim Channel of Classic Christian Gold, and he donated the rare interview clips of Rich Mullins we aired on this week's special.  We have more discussion and tribute items shared on our Facebook page.  (Dave)
