New! March 2007 -- Daniel Britt talks to Bill Gaither, primarily about the upcoming Atlanta Homecoming concert on April 13, 2007 -- but also about some other various topics, such as Give It Away, Homecoming Concert evolution, and the new guy Wes Hampton. Listen here >>

Daniel Britt and Mark Fuller called Bill Gaither at home on a Monday evening in the fall of 2003 to talk music, people, life and even radio! The audio clips below are portions of the unedited phone conversation. They are broken up into segments that are more manageable, since the entire interview lasted over 90 minutes! This is the first for more additions coming soon!
