We are a 501(c)3 friendly show!

 

If you are with either a radio station or website station and have ever thought about adding a bluegrass gospel show to your lineup, I would love to talk to you.  Feel free to call me anytime at 740-350-8891, email me at wvbluegrass@yahoo.com, or visit our contact page and I can tell you more about our show and ministry and even send you a demo or the complete show in whichever style of show that would fit your station.

 

 

I record the show each week in four different formats.  Two are with my sponsor plugs with one being straight through without commercial breaks and one is in four segments so you can run commercial breaks during the show.  If you are a tax exempt 501(c)3 non-profit media organization, I have the show recorded straight through and in four segments without my sponsor plug so it stays within guidelines of ther FCC.   Each show, no matter the style, stays under 57 minutes (usually ends at 56:55 - 57) and

 

the shows for 501(c)3 stations are usually, on average, about 1 1/2 minutes less.  I try to be very user friendly and use three different methods to send the show out each week.  I use Dropbox, Hightail, and ftp and I will set you up with whichever method you would like and you can have access to the other two as a back-up way of getting the show. The goal of The Bluegrass Gospel Hour is to tell others about the love of Jesus Christ through music and to create a "bubble" around circumstances in our lives that can cause the light in our heart to be dim.  It is amazing how the melody of bluegrass music can lift our spirits, brighten our day, and even refresh our thoughts.  The power of bluegrass music can do this even if you are having the worst of days or the best of days.  

 

 

 

 

 

I created The Bluegrass Gospel Hour in July 2008 and it first aired on Praise FM in Vienna, WV, which is operated by Fellowship Baptist Church.  I went to my pastor and told him my idea for the show and after one demo it was approved for airplay and quickly became a favorite at Praise FM.   Praise FM, WVVW, covers the entire Mid Ohio Valley on 96.1 FM in Marietta, OH, 98.1 FM in Vienna, WV, Parkersburg, WV, and Belpre, OH and 107.9 FM in Williamstown, WV.

Our Story

In our second year, we were asked to join our second station and in February 2015, we were asked to join our 100th station and have been blessed to continue our ministry as we are still joining new stations.  

Our goal is to share the message of Jesus Christ in a special way through bluegrass music and tell everyone what Christ has done for them or could do for them if they would accept the free gift of salvation.  We also want to create a "bubble" around circumstances that can cause the light in our heart to go dim.  It is amazing how the melody of bluegrass music can lift our spirits, brighten our day, and even refresh our thoughts, even if only while the song is being played. With the love of Jesus Christ and the melody of bluegrass music, The Bluegrass Gospel Hour hopes to bring a smile to your heart, a tap to your foot, a pat to your leg, and a "bubble" around your circumstances, even if only for an hour.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the show!   If you are with a radio station that is looking for a bluegrass show to add to your schedule, I would be thrilled to be considered.   

You can click the contact tab above to send me a message or give me a call.  I would love to tell you all about the show and answer any questions you may have. We have four different ways we record the show each week, one is straight through and in four segments, with and without sponsor ads, so we comply with 501(c)3 regulations.  We use ftp, Dropbox, and Hightail to send the shows out each week to be the most user friendly show you interact with each week.
