|Vincent Allen, a product of the 1970's Jesus Movement, is the producer/host of the "TAKE ME BACK MUSIC SHOW". The show is a long awaited realization of his dream to showcase quality Christian music entertainment from that era with R&B and jazz influence. It features the music of artists who desired to use their talent to communicate their Christian testimony and the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Recollection of the early days of the Jesus Movement would at first produce names and faces of white artists. However, pioneers like Andrae Crouch, Edwin Hawkins and Rance Allen also broke away from traditional Church music to reach a then contemporary urban audience. '70s Jesus Music was not only folk guitars strumming praises on "1 & 3", but also bass guitars and drums thumping hallelujah on "2 & 4." The TAKE ME BACK MUSIC SHOW deliberately focuses on Urban Jesus Music to remind folk that urban contemporary Gospel did exist before Kirk Franklin.

|The melting pot of artists featured on the TAKE ME BACK MUSIC SHOW represents various races emulating the musical styles of African American culture. Since many of these artists were not featured on white radio if they were black and vice versa if they were white, this format is long overdue.
The music of the Jesus Movement is often described as Oldies. Vincent Allen believes the adage a good song never dies, especially when it contains the Gospel of Christ. The Lord Himself said, "Heaven and Earth may pass away, but my Word will never pass away."
The TMB Music Show is backtracking and reintroducing what listeners may have missed over the past three decades. This music, born in a day of racial division, proclaimed true reconciliation, not through White Gospel or Black Gospel, but through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
