AUDIO/PODCAST INTERVIEW>> Jim Stover & Rhonda Thompson

Here is the extended interview from this week's "Daniel Britt & Friends" on XM 34. The program featured songs that you may have never heard on the radio before--songs that were not singled and never topped the charts.

In this interview (mp3 download here) with two veteran Gospel music record promoters, I try to find out how some songs are chosen to be hits and others are left behind.

Newspaper article on Mary Tom Speer, plus more

LINK>> Newspaper article on Mary Tom & SG

Daniel Mount over at Southern Gospel Blog has already linked to this story, but I have to add my two-cents' worth here.

It is foremost an article on Mary Tom Speer Reid; however, it doesn't stop with her. It includes quotes from Dr. Goff, Charlie Waller, Lily Fern Weatherford and Eva Mae LeFevre.

It actually crams a lot of historical Southern Gospel information into this one article. It's also interesting to note the documented (lack of a) relationship between Southern Gospel and the Gospel Music Association.

Kudos to the writer of the story for his research!
