Welcome to our new version of the homecomingradio.net broadcasters' website! This site is now responsive to the device on which it is viewed and should be more efficient. Homecomingradio.net will redirect to this site, but the website operates on the homecomingradio.online domain at this time. Either domain will bring the user to this page. We hope to continue to improve the site in the near future!
Welcome to the Broadcasters Download Site for the Bill Gaither's Homecoming Radio program! We are appreciative of the hundreds of radio stations throughout the world who regularly provide the "Best of the Best" in gospel music week after week via our Homecoming Radio offerings. On this site we make available to our radio stations a new Homecoming Radio program each week.
NOTE: While we offer our Gaither Homecoming Radio programs to our broadcasters free of charge, we do request that new radio station users contact us to register as one of our broadcasters and for permission to download and air the files available on our site. It's important to us to know our broadcasters in order that we be able to maintain quality control as well as to have the ability to contact our users with updates and information as needed. There are no affadavits that require signatures in order to air HCR. Click here to access our "Contact Homecoming Radio" form if you wish to broadcast Homecoming Radio, or if you are a current broadcaster who has never done so.
Broadcasters who wish to air our program more than once a week are encouraged to use our "Daily Program Download Page." On this page, archived programs (same length and format as our "weekend programs") are scheduled five days a week in a manner which will help broadcasters maintain an effective rotation of past shows and also avoid shows which are time-sensitive by season, holidays, etc. The calendar page is provided as a convenience to our radio station users.
The programs on this site are in single file MP3 format and the file size of each MP3 is about 110 Mb. The time sheets are in Excel (.xls) format (under 35 Kb) and provide the broadcaster with a complete list of all songs in the program, song time, CD name, recording label, and the times where breaks are located. The MP3 and Timesheet for each hour-long program are available below for download by clicking on the appropriate "Download" button. Download time may vary depending on your internet connection speed.
Note to Current Broadcasters of Homecoming Radio!
We plan to use email distribution more regularly in the future so, if you haven't been receiving emails from us, please subscribe. We want to stay in touch.
A Message to our Broadcasters (January 18, 2023)...
Hello Homecoming Radio partners!
We have exciting news soon to announce to the world, but first just a note for you, our faithful partners and affiliate: A New Chapter Lies Ahead for Homecoming Radio!
Celebrating more than 18 years on the air, the globally-syndicated radio broadcast known as Bill Gaither's Homecoming Radio is set for a new season ahead! Following a few weeks of special presentations, the show looks forward to a familiar 'happy rhythm' of bringing you all the music, smiles, hope, and encouragement you've come to expect from Bill Gaither, Kevin Williams, Tori Taff, Gordon Mote, Woody Wright, Lauren Talley, and many others.
Special programming is set to honor some key members of the Homecoming Radio family who have passed away in recent months, including the program's first producer and co-host, Phil Brower, along with editor Bob VerMeulen, theme-song arranger and pianist Otis Forrest and many others in the Homecoming circle of artists. Special features will also include a focus to debut brand new music from The Gaither Vocal Band and others, including a very special Valentine's Day broadcast! Your listeners can expect to hear several weeks of special Gaither programming beginning the weekend of January 27, 2023 — with an all-new regular season of shows including the return of your favorite segments slated for the weekend of March.
Updates to HomecomingRadio.com and associated digital platforms are currently underway to enhance the listener's experience, in addition to new surprises in store!
Broadcasters will continue to receive the programs from HomecomingRadio.net and associated FTP access. Our re-broadcasts will soon be given a fresh introduction in order to identify it as an encore presentation. If I can be of service to you or your station or if your station detail is not accurately featured on our main HomecomingRadio.com website, we are happy to remedy that as part of the overhaul and enhancements.
Again, a public announcement will be made in the coming days. In the meantime, thanks for your prayers & partnership!
