Publisher's Summary

Turn Your Radio On tells the fascinating stories behind gospel music's most unforgettable songs, including "Amazing Grace", "The Battle Hymn of the Republic", "He Touched Me", "I'll Fly Away", "Were You There?" and many more.

These are the songs that have shaped our faith and brought us joy.

You'll find out: what famous song traces back to a sailor's desperate prayer; what Bill Gaither tune was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1969 - and won a Grammy; what song was born during a carriage ride through Washington, D.C., at the onset of the Civil War.

Turn Your radio On is an inspiring journey through the songs that are part of the roots of our faith today.

    "Not what I expected"

    I enjoy gospel music and thought this would be a good way to get to know the history and artists.
    Unfortunately beyond the first couple songs (Amazing Grace & Battle Hymn of the Republic) I didn't know the music so the stories behind them were not that interesting.
    If a version of the songs was included at the beginning of each chapter this would have been far more interesting.
