(NASHVILLE, Tennessee) – CCM Classic is proud to announce a new partnership with Salem Music Network, doubling the national reach of their flagship program, CCM Classic Radio. The show now airs on over 200 stations nationwide.
On Salem Music Network’s 90 stations, CCM Classic Radio will air each weekend immediately following the popular and long running CCM Radio Magazine. Check local listings for air times.
CCM Classic Radio, which highlights Contemporary Christian Music from the 70’s through the new millennium, launched in February 2013. The hour-long show has featured interviews with Christian music pioneers such as The Archers, Dallas Holm and Don Francisco, as well as many current hit makers like Jaci Velasquez, Plumb and Mark Schultz.
“The greats of contemporary Christian music deserve a platform in today’s musical landscape,” says co-founder Michael Lederer. “Today, traditional radio only allows for a very small segment of current music to be played and that has a very short shelf life. Music that is relative, that endures the test of time, deserves to and needs to remain on the airwaves.”
Lederer and fellow music industry veteran, Chris Yates, created the show out of the desire to give these great songs, the songwriters who write them and the artists who deliver them an ongoing vehicle to reach the consumer.
