Update on the Programing Change

We love the changes that we have made, and hope you do to, for the most part. We are still getting used to our new system and we overdid a few things, and lost a few things – most of that will get fixed by next week. Tell us what you think, please — good or bad, let us know.

Here are some details on the changes we made as of Naw Ruz, March 21st:

  1. At the top of the hour we now have prayers and Holy Writings that are sung to music. We will be putting an announcement around those by next week to clarify that.
  2. Our music mix is, overall, fresher and more upbeat. We are bringing in a bit more Contemporary Gospel throughout the day than we’ve had before, and just a little bit less Jazz. It will take us a few weeks to get this mix just right, so bear with us.
  3. The African-American history mini-programs are going to get a rest. We have aired them every day for more than 2 years now. We have some new mini-programs that will start airing next week to replace them. We think you’ll like these – especially since we produced them ourselves.
  4. Our ½ hour information programs will each air on one day a week now, still at the three time slots of 10:00 AM, 7:00 PM, and midnight. Peace Talks on Sundays, Insight on Wednesdays, and Parents Journal on Saturday. See our Programming page for more information on these.
  5. The Baha’i spots that we took off the air will be replaced soon with new content. We just haven’t gotten those produced yet. We think you’ll like them, though,

Please keep listening and giving us your feedback – see our Contact Us page for how to do that, or just leave a comment below.

Remember, our goal is: When you listen to Radio Baha’i, even for a few minutes, we want you to feel better about your day, to feel more connected to God, to feel happier, to feel inspired to do the right thing, to feel encouraged, and to smile at those who cross your path!

Programming Changes at Radio Baha’i

Friday, March 21st, is the Baha’i New Year, or Naw Ruz, as well as being the first day of Spring, and it’s a great time to start something new. New flowers, new leaves, and new and improved programming!

The changes to our programming include new, fresh music, improved  music mix, and  some new programs. But don’t worry, we aren’t changing all of  the music — we’ll still sound like Radio Baha’i, playing a mix of R&B, Contemporary Gospel, some Traditional Gospel, and Jazz. We’ll still have prayers at the top of the hour, Insight, Peace Talks, Drum Beat, etc.

Each of us is, in reality, a spiritual being living in a material world. Our constant test in life is trying to harmonize the spiritual and material aspects of our lives. Radio Baha’i wants to be your spiritual supporter, one of the places that you go to recharge your batteries, to feel better about yourself, to help you deal with the challenges this life throws at you. We can’t replace personal prayer and meditation, reading the Holy verses, and service to others, but music can be a ladder for your soul. That’s what our changes are all about – becoming better at holding that ladder for you.

Listen and tell us what you think, or at least. We want to know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you think we can improve.

When you listen to Radio Baha’i, even for a few minutes, we want you to feel better about your day, to feel happier, to feel inspired to do the right thing, to feel encouraged, and to smile at those who cross your path!
