In Frontline Rewind episode 78, Executive Producer Adel Meisenheimer subs in for host Les Carlsen and interviews Scott Frankfurt, half of high-tech husband and wife pop duo, Street Called Straight. The other half, Jody Moreing Frankfurt, passed away in 2006, but Scott does a wonderful job of taking listeners through this dynamic couple’s spiritual, musical and relational journey. Listeners get to hear the progression from secular success, to salvation, to Sunday church, to CCM recordings on Frontline Records. Before marrying Scott, Jody had a record deal and secular success, including the writing of a song called “Danny” recorded on pop singer Tiffany’s debut album that sold over 11 million copies in 1987. Listeners will hear about her relationship with Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. Stevie Nicks almost wasn’t! Scott, a drummer, keyboardist and sound designer, started writing songs with Jody in the late ‘80s. Their first Contemporary Christian Music album, “Street Called Straight”, was one of the first in that market to be programmed digitally in 1991, thanks to Scott’s extraordinary tech talent. This episode includes songs with Jody’s unmistakable voice from the first album, complete with intros, recited lyrics and tech secrets straight from the artist.More

I recently finished listening to every single podcast from Frontline Records Rewind. It took me quite a while, since I discovered the podcast long after it first started, and started at the beginning. After listening to every episode, I feel like I have completed a university level class in The History of Alternative Christian Music. This is one amazing collection of podcasts, and when you are finished, you will know more than you ever have about what these artists endured when they were trying to spread the gospel using a sound that was not always welcome in the Christian world at the time. You will cry, laugh, and be amazed at some of the stories they share. You will have a better appreciation for the music itself, and will have much more respect for the talented artists that created it. I discovered, through this podcast, a few bands I never even knew existed, and have added some albums to my collection. Thank you, Frontline, for this podcast. I truly hope you continue.
