Paul Robinson is a perfect example of the sort of person who has taken to Internet broadcasting and the opportunities it provides. He lives in Murfreesboro, TN and has spent nearly 40 years working in radio and concert promotions, including several radio stations in Middle Tennessee.
But his dream has always been to own and operate his own station, something made more difficult by Paul’s severe vision problems. He began to investigate online broadcasting a few years ago, and has been producing and uploading hosted Gospel music content since 2014.
The model he follows is a bit different from many online music stations. Instead of providing a constant, 24/7 stream of songs, Paul creates new hosted content every few weeks, and listeners can select from among the many uploaded offerings when they visit his site.
From the time he was a young boy attending the Tennessee School for the Blind, Paul has found comfort and peace through Gospel music, something that has become a big part of his life.
He told us that he is proud to share his love for the music online.
“Even though I am blind, I have always tried hard to promote Gospel music, and I started my own internet radio station website. It is on demand streaming. There are about 20 or 25 shows that are an hour long, with four different kinds of music you can lesson to. We have Bluegrass Gospel, Southern Gospel, Classic southern Gospel and Black Gospel. I have been following bluegrass for about 10 years and have made some good friends in bluegrass music.”
Paul also asks bluegrass artists with Gospel projects to consider sending them his way for airplay. You can contact him through the Gospel Song Time web site to obtain a mailing address.
