It has been added to Salem Radio Network's Satellite System for distribution to an additional fifteen hundred stations. The production is digitally mastered and duplicated and provides an outstanding blend of uniquely styled traditional and contemporary Christian music.

Afterglow, created and launched in 1975, has received National Religious Broadcasters ''Award of Excellence'' in program production and content. It also was selected for two ''Silver Angel Awards'' from Excellence in Media and was selected for the 1997 Covenant Award as the outstanding national network/syndication inspirational program. Rev. Don Johnson, Afterglow's Producer/Host, received the 2002 National Religious Broadcasters ''Milestone Award.''


Henry Van Dykes memorable lyrics to ''Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee'' were set to the music from the last movement of Ludwig von Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 composed 1817-1823. Much of our beautiful sacred music has its foundations in the classics. In this musical heritage version of AFTERGLOW you'll hear the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Carnellean Quartet and pianist Linda McKechnie beautifully combining ''Great Is The Lord'' with ''Minuet'' by Paderewski and ''All Hail The Power'' with ''Trumpet Voluntary'' by Purcelli.
This version of AFTERGLOW is created especially for stations that play classical music and that may or may not be affiliated with NPR (National Public Radio). You'll not only hear music favorites in classical stylings, but learn the rich heritage from which these songs emerged.

"Amazing Love" Story CD – Stories of the Cross and Beyond

"Amazing Love" CD is a perfect follow-up to "The Passion of the Christ" movie. The movie Dramatically shows what happened to Christ during His last hours of trial and crucifixion. "Amazing Love" points out how this benefits all of us.

The movie aroused the world, both Christian and non-Christian. "Amazing Love" is a "soothing supplement" to the movie. It is a "must listening" for everyone, whether seeing the movie or not. It will cause us to take inventory of our "spiritual self" and see where we need help.

Find out who wrote the universally recognizable "Amazing Grace" and listen to unique arrangements of "The Old Rugged Cross" and "I Bowed On My Knees and Cried 'Holy'." Hear a medical description of the suffering and agony a person experienced at crucifixion.
