You’ve probably heard of the Billboard charts, as well as other ways of rating music. Many commercial radio stations make their playlists based off of requests from across the nation, resulting in a homogenous sound across the country on these ‘Top 40’ radio stations. But for Christian radio stations, there is another way.
At Christian radio stations, we don’t base all of our music off of what’s popular across the country. While we do look to Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, we also want to know what is popular locally. Our mission is to serve our local community and to spread the faith here, where we live and work. That’s why many Christian radio stations ask for volunteers to join Music Advisory Teams, to help decide what kind of music should be played at the local level.
A music advisory team is a way of augmenting the national chart information we receive, to make sure we are playing music which provides hope and encouragement our specific community needs. Not all Christian radio stations are the same, and not all communities around Christian radio stations are the same either!
Spread The Faith Which Helps You
At Spirit 92.9, we take spreading the faith very seriously. Our ministry is designed to deliver encouragement and hope, and we know the best way to do this is by learning what works for our listeners.
If a particular Christian song or artist really speaks to you or has helped you through troubled times, it may be that they could help others who are in need as well.
Learn More About The Station, Music And Faith You Love
We hope that by joining a Christian radio station’s Music Advisory Team, you’ll become more invested in the station you listen to. You will get to know the DJs and staff better and listen on a more regular basis. You may even start to do research on lesser-known Christian artists to find additional music or musical styles to recommend! And you will hopefully grow more and learn more about the faith you embrace.
