What Was The Inspiration Behind Turn Your Radio On?


Below is a quote from the author himself, Albert E Brumley:

"I wrote 'Turn Your Radio On' in 1937, and it was published in 1938. At this time radio was relatively new to the rural people, especially gospel music programs. I had become alert to the necessity of creating song titles, themes, and plots, and frequently people would call me and say, 'Turn your radio on, Albert, they're singing one of your songs on such-and-such a station.' It finally dawned on me to use their quote, 'Turn your radio on,' as a theme for a religious originated song, and this was the beginning of 'Turn Your Radio On' as we know it."


Turn Your Radio Song Lyrics


Well come and listen in
To a radio station
Where the mighty hosts
Of heaven sing
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
If you want to feel
Those good vibrations
Comin' from the joy
That His love can bring
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
Turn your radio on
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And glory share
(Glory glory share)
Turn your lights down low
(Oh yes turn your lights down low)
And listen to the Master's radio
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
Don'tcha know that everybody
Is a radio receiver
All you gotta do
Is listen for the call
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)
If you listen in
You will be a believer
Leanin' on the truth
That will never fall
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
(Oh yes turn your radio on)
And glory share
(Glory glory share)
Turn your lights down low
(Oh yes turn your lights down low)
And listen to the Master's radio-o-o-o-o
(Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master's radio)
Get in touch with God
(Get in touch with God)
Turn your radio on
(Turn your radio on)

Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul Hymn

Story Behind Heaven Came Down  Heaven Came Down is a hymn that is of recent origin as it was written in 1961 by John W Peterson. It draws its inspiration from a testimony delivered by an old man named Jim at Montrose Bible Conference Grounds, Pennsylvania. During the testimony talked of his conversion experience. In the testimony he used the phrase, "It seemed like Heaven came down and glory filled my soul." It is this phrase that inspired John W Pearson to write a song using this phrase later that week.  John W Peterson wrote over a thousand hymns but it is this song that has touched and continues to touch millions of Christians all over the world. He died on September 20, 2006, at the age of 84 after suffering from prostate cancer. It is so sweet to entrust and surrender our lives to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Heaven does literally come down into our hearts when we do that. John W Peterson Heaven Came Down and Glory Filled My Soul

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.'  Daniel B Towner- Trust and Obey The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord. The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus. This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song. A brief Intro of

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand (My Hope Is Built On Nothing Less) Lyrics and Story

My Hope Is Built On Nothing Else / On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand History My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less or On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand is the best-known hymn of Edward Mote who wrote it in 1834. The original title of this hymn was, "The Immutable Basis for a Sinner's Hope". Edward Mote was the pastor of Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham West Sussex in the United Kingdom. It looks as if the inspiration for this hymn came from Christ parable of the wise and foolish builders. In the parable, Christ speaks of the foolish builder who built his house on sinking sand while the wise builder built his on solid rock. As you would imagine a storm easily swept away the one built on sand. Edward Mote - On Christ the Solid Rock Christ is the solid rock upon which we can build our house of faith. Any other foundation is like one on sand and will ultimately fail. On the authorship of this song Mr. Mote's explanation, communicated to the Gospel Herald, is
