It's great to hear that a lot of the music material has been preserved - thank you Paul! I recall attending a Festival of the Son between around '75-'77 at which Radiance recorded the music performances. Can't remember where it was, but we camped out. I had the great joy of playing there in a band from Santa Rosa called Rock Salt. We were all still learning back then that acoustic guitars weren't intrinsically holy and electric guitars weren't evil. We were semi-electric. I remember meeting Jim Durkin when he came to preach at our church in Santa Rosa (His Name Ministries) and brought some singers. I recognize a couple of the tunes in the article above.
Paul, if you release the Festival Material I'll buy it. Thanks again for preserving this
relatively unknown, but VERY influential stream of music. It would make a great documentary. Probably tons of photos floating around...
Alright all youse Jesus Freaks, I am outa here. Keep the faith,
