Music has always played a significant role in
our world and national life. Sacred music is an important part
of this heritage. It's been said ''music soothes the savage
beast,'' but it accomplishes many other goals as well. Music
has helped us find hope, encouragement, guidance, calmness,
motivation and uplift. Afterglow is specifically designed to
offer these qualities in each production.
Isn't it significant that in the Lord's Word He devotes 150 chapters in the
middle of scripture that provide the spiritual hymnbook for all who want
to sing His praises. These psalms, like the hymns of Afterglow, were written
from the varied backgrounds of joy and sadness, prosperity and adversity,
hope and despair. When His Word is set to music or His truths are expressed
in song, great things happen.
Afterglow'S music has been described as a unique mix of three ingredients:
the majesty of a snow-capped mountain, the sparkling freshness of a clear-flowing
stream, and the warmth and splendor of a golden sunset. It's special blend
of lavish orchestrations, elegant stylings, and the finest artists create
the distinctive mood so characteristic of each program.
Afterglow Classics is the newest version of the program that has been specially
designed for NPR (National Public Radio) Classical Music formatted stations.
Spotlighting religious music with a classical interpretation in orchestration
and arrangement, the program features intriguing history on the music selections
presented. This is the most creative and innovative music heritage production
of its kind.<
Exceptional Features of Afterglow
One thing truly remarkable about Afterglow is
it's acceptance not only on religious stations, but on a variety
of other differently formatted stations. The program has ''boldly
gone where no man has gone before.'' It has been accepted by
a Contemporary Rock music station in Seattle, a Contemporary
Country music station in Nebraska, and a Contemporary Hits
music station in Utah, and an Oldies station in Georgia, as
well as to a host of other stations that regularly air the
program throughout the world. This is no small accomplishment
for any program, much less for a sacred music production.
Another exceptional feature of Afterglow is its acceptance by radio stations
as a ''Public Service'' feature. This means that each of the 200 stations
receiving the program include it in their format without charging payment
for airtime. Nearly $500,000 worth of radio time is donated to Afterglow
each year. This indicates the value the stations find in the program's production
and content and their desire to offer Afterglow as a service to the listening
audience in their community.
A new door has been opened for Afterglow to be added to Salem Radio Network's
Satellite Distribution to an additional 1100 stations across America.
