The Final Show

By Paul Gibson | March 29th, 2020 | Posted In News

This week marks the final show of The Christian Rock 20. Thank you to all of you who have ever played the show on your station, listened to the show, streamed the interviews or even won music from The CR20.

Also, thank you to my wife Sarah, who often had to take a back seat to production and interview time. She also deserves full credit for helping to create the show. Thanks to Chris Andrews who helped me set up, EQ and even choose my first USB soundboard, which was used to produce the bulk of the CR20 shows as well as the final show. Thanks to Brad Elliott for helping to craft the show and for being cool with show breaking the format of 98X in Abilene TX once a week so the show had a home. And thank you to Chris Kuhner, Tim, Keith, Rynie and the rest of The Broken FM crew for being the first station to pick up the show in syndication and the only station to ever be willing to pay cash for the show.

I will miss all of this but I will enjoy the free time that it will afford me to spend with my wife, my daughter and my soon-to-be-born son.

Stay healthy and stay tuned for new adventures.

Keep On Rockin’,

~Paul

The End of The Christian Rock 20

By Paul Gibson | March 4th, 2020 | Posted In News

Dear listeners,

We announced on this past week’s show that March 2020 will be the last month for The Christian Rock 20 radio show. The Christian Rock 20 is and has been one of the loves of my life for over 11 years. I am very proud of the impact it has made on radio stations in the US, UK, Canada and Europe. However, the show has been at a crossroad for a while now. The show either needed to be revamped (a new website, a lot of backend production, etc), or it needed to be put to bed. My commitments to family and work have grown over the past 5 years. Just one of these commitments would not be enough to make me throw in the towel, but together it is proving too much. I don’t want the show to become either a drudge that I (or my family) resent. I also don’t want the show to falter and lose quality because of a lack of time and attention. 

Another facet of letting the show go is because of trying to take better care of my family. I have a wonderful wife, who helped with the concept of the show and has always been a huge supporter of what I do. I also have a 4-year-old daughter who is smart, beautiful and a joy. We are also expecting a new addition to our family in the form of a new baby boy who will be born in April. After losing both my mother and mother-in-law over the holiday season I have grown to appreciate family and the time spent with them more than ever. 

I am not sure what is next for the CR20 brand. For now, at least, I am not interested in producing a new radio show, nor do I feel I have the time. But, there might be something else down the road that would likely be of interest if you enjoyed The Christian Rock 20. I plan to keep the CR20 social media going and share new Christian Rock news etc. When and if we get something new going, we will let you know through those channels. I do plan to make the CR20 artist interviews available to stream via our YouTube channel over the coming months as well. 

For those of you who are interested in keeping up with what I do currently: 

  • I produce The Kevin and Taylor morning show in Nashville, TN on 94FM The Fish.
  • I host an afternoon show in Birmingham, AL on Revocation Radio.
  • I DJ parties/weddings/etc.
  • I also oversee Lipscomb University’s student radio station, The Bison.

For now, thank you to all for listening, voting, participating, and supporting your favorite artists and bands. For the stations that aired the shows, thank you for taking a chance on me, my show and allowing this show to rock your airwaves for 2 hours each week. Finally, for all the artists and bands who made music played on the show or took the time to do an interview, this show couldn’t have happened without you.

That is all.


Until next time. Keep on Rockin’.

Paul Gibson
