Every night, hear 7+ hours of music to keep you company—awake, asleep, or somewhere in between—courtesy of your friends at KDRT.
The word "gospel" is derived for the old Anglo-Saxon word meaning “good message” or “good news." Host Preacher believes gospel music is powerful, whether the listener is or is not Christian--that everyone can enjoy listening to gospel because it is uplifting and inspiring, sung with passion and belief from the artist, touching all who hear it in a good and heartfelt way. The aim of the show is to help listeners find what Preacher believes lives in everyone: a good spirit that drives us to be the best we can be.
