We don’t have a new show for you this week, but we thought we’d let you know which past episode has proven to be the most popular. It turns out that episode #55, released on September 19, 2014, is our most popular show to date based on the number of podcast plays.
And it is by far the most played episode to date.
So let’s take a closer look at episode #55. The new featured artist that week was Emily Wilson and her song ‘Beautiful and Yours’, along with songs from Chris Bray, Katy Blythe, Out of Darkness, Sarah Hart and Steve Angrisano. But it might be the set of songs from the performers at the Abbey Faith and Music Festival at Daylesford Abbey in Pennsylvania that sets this episode apart. Up first was Kara Klein, then Greg&Lizzy, followed by Audrey Assad and then wrapping up with Matt Maher. That’s a great lineup, and it made for a great show:
Another Catholic artist crowdfunding opportunity needs your help! The RoCa Band has posted a Kickstarter project to raise the funds needed to record and produce their first full length album.
According to their profile on Kickstarter, “RoCa started in the first days of Nico Cabrera’s and James Roman’s days at college together. Nico was playing piano in the lobby of their dorm room, James asked to join, and Nico said yes. The rest is history. They are two guys who love good music, philosophy, happiness, and sharing their story with those in need. They have seen darkness and tasted pain, but they’ve also seen the sweetest light in the universe.”
We’ve played music from their EP many times on the Catholic Playlist show and we look forward to checking out their first full length album. But that will only be possible if you pledge your support before the deadline of Nov 22, 2014!
What a pleasant surprise for a Friday morning! Allison Gingras, writer and contributor to CatholicMom.com, published a nice article today about the Catholic Playlist show and the new elements we’ve added to the roster – Song of the Week and Catholic Playlist Worship. It’s true that all of this show production is in my spare, extra time (is there such a thing?). I don’t count it as loss though (except for sleep) because I love doing it but most importantly it helps the many talented artists out there who make great music that deserves to be heard!
Stay tuned to the show and be on the lookout for more fun things on the horizon…
