Customer Reviews

RagsToRighteous ,

Great place to find fresh music!

I’m always surprised by the new music on this podcast that I’ve never heard of before.

jessman1128 ,

I love the Gourmet Music Podcast!!!

Each episode of this podcast provides you with an abundance of well-crafted, faith-based music that you won't generally find anywhere in FM radio land. Dave continues to find quality music to introduce to the listeners and each new episode brings completely different songs to you! The music here has ministered to my mind, heart, and soul time and time again.

NewBerryVoice ,

Always inspiring

For many years now, UTR has been a constant and consistent spiritual partner. Dave, his vision and the music he curates have helped me to see into a deeper part of my connection to God. I’m so thankful. Happy Birthday UTR!
