Error Corrected

To any of you who are subscribed to the show via an RSS reader, my apologies. I inserted an incorrect link when I initially posted the show today. This has been corrected. If your reader downloaded the incorrect link already, you'll have to refresh it somehow. I was able to do this in iTunes by deleting the podcast I had in my podcast library, and just resubscribing at the iTunes Music Store.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Let me know if you have any trouble downloading the show.


A home recording of a song written for the Victor Unity Fest back in 2001 is featured on this edition of basicmm radio. The song was a request by our friend John Oliphant, and was first performed at the Unity Fest in January 2002. The lyrics of the song are below.

Now, for those of you who actually VISIT the podcast page... :-) you get an inside scoop not posted elsewhere...

We are in the preliminary stages of our next studio album! This song will be included on that CD, along with up to 14 or 15 other worship songs. The album will apropriately be titled (as of now) "Worship". Hope to have it available for purchase sometime in 2006. Stay tuned!

As always, thanks for listening. Catch ya next time.
Unified (2001)

We are the Body of Christ
Hand in hand, side by side
We'll take this world for Jesus
Even giving our lives
We are unified

"So, what are you?" we ask all the time
Simply "A Christian," just won't suffice
Too many labels dividing our side
Begging the question -
Are we unified?

Brother and sister, look the other way
"It's not my problem, it's his," we say
But we're a family, united in Christ
So grab the hand of your brother
Let's be unified

Let this world see the beauty of Him
So many diverse, all unified
Ev'ry tongue, ev'ry tribe, ev'ry nation…

Local Artist Showcase

Get to know basic on this edition of basicmm radio! A few years ago now, we did an interview on a show called "Local Artist Showcase" on the Family Life Network (a group of radio stations across NY and PA). I came across the CD recently, and am posting the show in its entirety here with their permission.

The interview is done by Bruce Barrows, and includes our songs The One and My Visible See-Through Friend from our Come As You Are CD. Also, they featured another artist Wendy Gammon from Livonia, NY. Bonus! :-)

We mentioned on the show that you can e-mail in song suggestions to the show and we'll see what we can dig up! Email us at Also mentioned was that you can make a donation to basic via this website and PayPal. Your donations would certainly be appreciated, and probably won't be mentioned again. :-)

Enjoy the show! Here are the two songs featured, along with a link to purchase the song from iTunes!
The One (1997)
buy this song at --->The One

I'm searchin' for somethin' real to me, I'm searchin' for nothin' that I see
They say there's nothin' out there, They say that I'll go nowhere
But I say... hey, I say...

I want to know You better, Lord
I want nothing less, nothing more
I want to know you better...
There's nothing new under the sun, nothing that hasn't already been done
There's nothing new under the sun, Lord, I want to know the One

Who made the land, who made the sea; who gave me life and now watches me
From the tiny bird to the mountain, the desert refreshed by a fountain
He made it all, it all is His, and He gives the life that I now live

That made me, that formed me to be; that caught me, brought me to my knees
I can not believe You loved me, hung on the cross thinkin' of me
But now I sit here knowing the One who's known me the best since my life begun

My Visible, See-Through Friend (2000)
buy this song at --->My Visible, See-Through Friend

I can't feel your arms around me, but I know that they are there
And I can't see your eyes lookin' at me, but I know they're everywhere
And I can't even hear your voice, callin' out my name
But deep inside my heart confirms you, and I know it just the same

You speak the language of my heart, connecting with my soul
And though it seems we're worlds apart, you have become my whole
Life, my whole way of thinking, you cause my every move
And deep inside my heart confirms you, cause my life has been made new

Oh, you have my heart, though I can't touch you
And I know that I am yours - I feel it deep inside
No storm can ever undo, the faith I have built in you
My visible, see-through friend

I did not get to see when you made the stars
Was it all just for me, did you see so far
Ahead, that I would see your face, lookin' back at me
In all the things that you have made, sayin, "I have set you free!"

Can it be that just a man right here like me
Can have a friend he can not see?
Well friend I tell you that it's not these eyes that see
It's the eyes of faith that have come - from seein' the things he has done
