Sounds of Triumph

Sounds of Triumph was a Jesus-rock radio program hosted and produced by Gord Driver in Toronto, Ontario. Sounds of Triumph was a non-profit organization that produced Christian concerts and radio programs, one of which was produced for Toronto Teen Challenge. Offices and studios were located in the now demolished Evangelistic Centre at Yonge and York Mills in Toronto; the same Pentecostal Holiness Church that hosted a concert for Mark Heard. The radio show aired on WDCX 99.5 FM an American radio station broadcasting from Buffalo, New York. Center Sound Productions was the predecessor to Sounds of Triumph.

Sounds of Triumph was also a newspaper published as an adjunct to Gord Driver's Jesus-rock radio program. Sounds of Triumph was set up as a non-profit organization that produced Christian concerts and radio programs, one of which was produced for Toronto Teen Challenge. Offices and studios were located in the now demolished Evangelistic Centre at Yonge and York Mills in Toronto

In January, 1980, Daniel Amos and Randy Stonehill wrapped up part of the Amos n'Randy Tour in a Toronto concert, sponsored by Sounds of Triumph. The event captured the attention of the local press and two television stations ("The New Music" a MuchMusic production and unknown) have produced features on Contemporary Christian music. At the end of the concert, StreetLevel's Phil Mangano arrived with Larry Norman in tow, and Larry was coaxed on stage for a song with the band.(Source: CCM Magazine January 1980 and danielamos.com)
