    Hello, The other night i played a set for my radio show and played a song that had… less than christ centered vocals in it. I put together that set very quickly as i was in a rush because i was quite busy throughout the week. I did not realize at the time that the track i was playing was offensive in any way, but while it was playing out i caught some of the lyrics… and they weren’t very tasteful in any way. If This song offended you in any way i can understand. I did not realize that this track was not that great until later but the damage had been done. i listened to the recorded set and noticed it was an awful track to be playing on a highly esteemed Christian radio station. This was sincerely an honest mistake and i will do everything i can to not let something like this slip by again. If you like my show and this did indeed offend you, please forgive me and know that i really did not intentionally play this song to offend, it was a gross mis-judgement on my part. Please continue listening to my and all the awesome radio shows that are on godsdjs radio, they make a vital part of this community. Christ is the center of my life and the center of all the music i produce.I have taken the recording of the set off my website as well. I hope that you can find it in your heart to forgive this mistake!

    Thank you all for your wonderful support, and hope to see you next time i play!

    Sincerely,
    Shelby Callaway

    I as well have put this in a mix on my website called “Home.” It was a present for a girl that I was in love with at the time, and the theme of the mix was home. So I stuck it in there as it was a song that I had in my library called, “Home.” If this causes anybody to stumble in their relationship with Christ, I will remove the mix from my website immediately. However, if I don’t hear from anyone, it will remain on my website. I can support this with scripture too, if needed.

    I’ve had gotten tracks off beatport in the past and ran into this. the samples check out fine until I get it and download it and then right the beginning or end something is thrown in. It’s ok shelby, we make mistakes like this sometimes. I didn’t catch it, but what track is it?

    Faithless – Not Going Home (Armin Van Buuren Remix)

    The track itself is freakin’ sweet… But we all know how Faithless can get sometimes with his lyrics… After all, he’s faith-less… Why should he care? ;)

    im really not a fan of anything by Faithless…i mean, look lets just take his name…he could have picked anything but he chose “Faithless” :/

    Anyhoo…It bugs me when I hear an awesome track and they have some distasteful vocal bit that ruins the whole ting…errr :[

    Depending how long the sample is you could radio edit it by loading the song into goldwave, soundforge or whatever program you are using and reverse the lyric or take it out completely and insert a copy and paste of beats

    Happens to the best of us, Shelby… i was DJing a birthday party once and they wanted to hear a bunch of Top 40 stuff and I didn’t have time to listen to every track all the way through… one track that I played was labeled Radio Edit, but about halfway through the song, the singer drops a big ol’ F-Bomb… did I mention that this was the birthday party for one of my youth group high schoolers? Yeah… it was rough… So don’t sweat it, man. We know you mean no harm…

    I just wanted to state that I support Shelby and his apology statement. We are held to a higher degree of responsibility as examples of God’s love. I will finish by quoting who I believe is Science Drop’s father in DJ Led Worship Volume III, about 8:50 in he says, “Everything about how we speak, how we live has to be one thing…. a clear message about the fact that we’ve been called out of darkness and into His light”

    Could not be more true. One message.

    As someone who has struggled with sexual immorality, I can tell you that the pain lies deep within. It’s something that only surfaces as the worst of times. Sexual sin is so ingrained our society today from clothes people wear, to media, and perception of beauty and pedigree that most people who struggle with it don’t even realize it and if they do, and don’t realize it when songs like “not going home” is played that it is feeding their habitual sin leading them away from Christ.

    What I’m am getting at is that if you feel that any song or aspect of what represents you could in any way cause anyone to stumble in the relationship with Christ, I can tell you from experience on the other end that we need all the help we can get. We need to unite as brothers in Christ to rid of anything and everything that causes us or our brothers to stumble.

    Arrgh! I hate when that happens. Especially when you are all excited about how that track is going to fit in with your set…then, bam! Ruined! :evil:
