Behind the Scenes


AFR Headquarters

Posted by Bobby · Friday, February 07, 2014

Ancient Faith Radio now has over 80 podcasts; we are averaging around 400,000 downloads a month; and we have listeners in over 130 countries. Whenever I see these stats, I just have to smile—not because I am so pleased with our growth and reach (which I am), but because of the humble environs from which all of our content emanates. Currently, I am sitting on the couch in the basement of my home in a t-shirt, jeans, and no shoes. A block away, my mother and father, the founders of Ancient Faith Radio, are in their house and in similar attire, each of us attending to some aspect of the ministry.

Our marketer is at home in Kansas City, Missouri, our webmaster is at his home near Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, and that's pretty much it. Oh, and we have a podcast producer who lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and my wife Paige, also a producer, lives here with me (of course!). As tiny and virtual as our office is, however, we do have a headquarters, and I thought you might enjoy seeing a picture of it. Here are the Ancient Faith Radio studios:

Help Us with Our Financial Appeals

Posted by Bobby · Thursday, January 30, 2014

Do you appreciate Ancient Faith Radio and wouldn't mind stating it publicly? We are in the process of creating new financial appeal spots for our streaming talk and music stations that feature listeners just like you. Basically. we would just need you to explain via phone what AFR means to you—and in twenty seconds or less. That's it! If you are interested, please contact me at I'll arrange for a time to call you and record your statement.

We wish we didn't have to ask for money, but Ancient Faith Radio is entirely supported by our listeners. This means that unless we remind you of our needs from time to time, we won't have the funds to keep broadcasting. These appeal spots are thus essential to our continued existence. Please consider helping out, especially if you don't have the resources at this time to assist us monetarily.

Thanks so much! I look forward to hearing from you.

Welcome to the AFR Blog

Posted by Bobby · Thursday, December 05, 2013

Welcome to the new Ancient Faith Radio blog. The purpose of this forum is not to discuss theology or explore aspects of the Orthodox faith (our podcasters have that territory pretty well covered), but rather to share with you what is happening behind the scenes here at Ancient Faith Radio.

My plan is to describe for you the conferences that we attend, introduce you to special guests who visit our studio, provide you with sneak previews of upcoming events and developments, and do whatever else I can to create a sense of community between our staff, our podcasters, and our listeners.

This would also be a great place to ask questions about something that you saw or heard on our site.  Conversely, I will be seeking your input for content ideas and putting out calls for volunteers and even potential podcasters. Ancient Faith Radio is expanding so quickly that it is going to take all of us pitching in to keep up with the growth and ensure that we deliver only the best in Orthodox internet media.

We thank you so much for listening to Ancient Faith Radio and appreciate your support. I look forward to meeting you here throughout the week!
