In 1994 Chris Coppernoll, Johnny Fussell and Mike Becht asked a simple question. What was the one thing that Christian radio needed more than anything else? After months of discussion and dozens of interviews with radio and label contacts it became clear that Christian music fans needed to get to know the artists that made the music they loved in a more real and personal way. Based on those interviews, and much prayer, Soul2Soul was born. The program launched the first weekend of August 1994 on exactly 100 stations and has been on the air continuously ever since. While the many of the names and the faces have changed over the years, the core need for Soul2Soul remains the same today as it did sixteen years ago.
Soul2Soul is a production of Music Square West and distributed worldwide by Encourager International Ministries.
