Giving thanks: Dennis from Ohio

Chavah listener Dennis from Ohio writes in to say,  “Shalom Judah, I found your Messianic Jewish internet radio station about three weeks ago.  I am VERY impressed with it.  The music is for the most part toned down and very worshipful.  I have been listening to it for roughly 6 hours per day since I found it. The music is soothing and uplifting.  I also like the ability to request songs and to click on the ones which I like. Thank you for taking the time to put all this together and make all of this wonderful Messianic Jewish music available.  For three years I have been listening to another Messianic Jewish internet station (Sounds of Shalom).  They have live DJs for a couple hours each day, and I have become friends with them via email.  But your music is more to my liking.  On Chava I have heard some extremely beautiful music which I had never head before.  I look forward to listening every day.  Keep up the great work! Shalom” Thank you, sincerely, Dennis! Stuff like this is

New (old!) music: Kol Simcha–Sound of Joy

An online acquaintance reminded me to get ahold of some old classic Messianic music from the 1970s: Kol Simcha – Sound of Joy! I’ve got a few of their songs now on Chavah, and plan to get the rest soon provided we can convert the old vinyl records to MP3. (You know you’re going to hear some classic sounds when you have to convert from vinyl!) *edit April 1, 2014: we now have the whole album on Chavah – woohooo!* Kol Simcha – Sound of Joy Some classic Messianic sounds here, friends! I think you’ll like it. Kol Simcha has been ministering through Messianic music for 35 (!) years. Bless them for their service by purchasing their music . Enjoy, fine Messianic music fans!
