Rewind Episode 70: Shout members Ken Tamplin and Chuck King share epic tour stories and the unorthodox circumstances that brought them together and ultimately to Frontline Records.

In Frontline Records Rewind Episode 70, host Les Carlsen gets together with Shout member, Chuck King, in person and “virtual” Ken Tamplin from his home in Hawaii. The guys share wild tour stories and insights about songs they co-wrote for albums, It Won’t Be Long and In Your Face. Contemporary Christian rock music fans might recall that Chuck was originally the guitarist for Frontline artist, Idle Cure. Listeners hear how Chuck and Ken met. (Includes Ken hawking equipment through Recycler in order to eat.) They ended up forming a new group and signing a contract with Frontline. We learn of Ken’s decision to turn down a very lucrative secular band to honor his commitment with Frontline. Shout recordings often featured guitar solos by Frontline artist, Lanny Cordola (House of Lords, Magdallen), who started giving Ken guitar lessons at age 16. Ken shares a humorous story of this early time with Lanny and how they developed as friends. Listen to his crazy solo on the hit song, “Shout”.

Featured Review

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.
