XM Channel 32 is The Message, a station focusing on contemporary Christian music. I don’t know much about this genre; however, I do know what my ear and mind like, and this channel works for me.
So if I don’t know many of the artists featured on this station, why does it earn a preset on my radio?
- I find it pleasing
- The tempo is upbeat
- In general I don’t focus on lyrics as I like rhythms
- When I do listen to lyrics, these have a positive message
I don’t listen to The Message all the time, but there are times I prefer it. Meanwhile, Stephen Curtis Chapman performed a concert after a recent Reds baseball game. Since I knew he’s won a Grammy and one heard on The Message, I stuck around for the post-game concert … and it was well done! I was amazed at the number of people who knew the lyrics to many of his songs.
Below are two songs I’ve enjoyed on The Message plus a Stephen Curtis Chapman video. See what you think … and if you like the sound, turn to XM Channel 32. Below the videos are links to other XM channel posts.
Jars of Clay: Two Hands
Newsboys: In the Hands of God
Stephen Curtis Chapman: Dive
