In March 2009, the Psalmist George was introduced to the media and has hence impacted more lives through the gift of the Holy Spirit. His first experience was with Radio Focus. On the radio was an opportunity for every listeners to deeply express his/herself to the King of Kings without any hold back or time constrain. He also allows the hidden talent of worship in God’s people to be used to the maximum effect.
It is a call in worship program which allows people to call in and sing, pray, preach, read the bible and encourage with the word of God whiles he played the piano live in the studio to accompany them. With the overwhelming method with which he approaches his radio listeners, he became a threat to some ministers who established their ministry for business as church members were not attending regular Friday all-night. It was obvious that they preferred to stay in their homes and in the chambers of their bedroom whiles enjoying the live worship on radio. Due to the Godly and peaceful attitude of the Psalmist he was compelled to change the worship time so to make peace. He then moved on to Diamond Radio also in the UK and made a greater impact. Currently, the Psalmist Gorge has established his own radio station called WORSHIP RADIO UK. The nature of the program has reach beyond the walls of UK to USA, Ghana and many times from China.
