Program Details

The term "title track" is the song that bears the same name as the album title.  Usually the song comes first. So this means that, to the artist, that song is special in some way - whether it be theme, craftsmanship, depth, or melodic acheivement.  So as we play all title cuts this week, you can reflect on the fact that for various reasons, these are important enough songs …

While it's impossible to sum up Escape To The Lake in a 1-hour show, it's fun to produce an overview episode each year.  The interview clips are substantial - I love what Micah Dalton said about how some artists caught in the in-between, not fully embraced by the club scene and not fully embraced by the church scene, can find a home at ETTL.  And I also love how …
