"In the Bible it says to make a joyful noise unto the Lord and that's what we're going to do." With those words, the Joyful Noise radio show kicked off each week, syndicated on stations in the U.S. The show mixed Christian rock music -- then called 'Jesus Music,' now known as Contemporary Christian Music -- with crossover songs from mainstream music. The host was Paul Baker, who was also the author of a music history from the time titled "Why Should the Devil Have All The Good Music." The book was later updated as "Contemporary Christian Music: Where it Came From, What it Is, Where It's Going"; and yours truly received a thanks from the author in the introduction. In real life, Paul Baker was Frank Edmondson who, if memory serves me right, worked for Word Records whose fledgling Myrrh Records label was bringing many of the early CCM artists into national distribution. This YouTube channel features a few of the early Myrrh releases. Shows like A Joyful Noise and The Scott Ross Show were often the only way modern Christian music was heard in some music markets, since the dedicated gospel stations that existed wouldn't touch the new, emerging Christian rock. So secular rock station program directors had to be persuaded to schedule the show on weekends. On this rare demo, the music is 'telescoped' so you're mostly hearing intros and outros.
