On September 19, 1997, the world said goodbye to one of the most prolific and, sometimes controversial, Christian artists of his day, Rich Mullins. Mullins' soared to CCM stardom with hits like "Awesome God" and "Sometimes by Step", but his deep convictions and poetic mind prevented him from relishing in his fame. Like Keith Green before him, he walked to the beat of his own drum and did the music he wanted. Tragically, his life was cut short in an automobile accident.
In this episode, we talk to four CCM artists who knew Rich, and they give us some insight in to the man Rich was behind the scenes, as well as tell some interesting tales of their encounters with him. Join us for this very special episode of Jesus Freaks: Vinyl to Digital, as we pay tribute to Rich Mullins and feature some of the music he brought us.

Special Thanks to Russ, Lee, Mark Gersmehl, Lary Dean and Randy Stonehill for their contributions to this episode.
