Nightsounds with Bill Pierce reaches those individuals who, by the Lord’s divine providence, need gentle guidance to relieve stress from their day. Nightsounds originated in Chicago as a nightly, local radio broadcast of Moody Bible Institute’s radio station, WMBI. The program would feature suitable music for this night-time audience, along with the unscripted comments and Biblically based insights of host Bill Pearce.
Bill started in radio at WMBI following World War 2 as a member of both the Melody Four and Sixteen Singing Men singing groups. The Nightsounds program quickly gained a broad listening audience not only among believers, but with cynics and agnostics as well. When Bill left WMBI in the early 1970’s, the program had expanded to nearly 100 stations that carried the program.
At AICR, we always new that we just had to add Bill’s wildly popular Nightsounds to our worldwide Christian discipleship radio line-up to abundant bless our beloved brothers and sisters. We prayed to God. The Lord made it happen. Praise God!
Today NightSounds’ office is located in Rockford, Illinois, and the program is broadcast each night over more than 300 AM/FM, satellite, cable, and translator outlets across the U.S., Canada, and overseas. You may also listen to the program from our web site, nightsoundsradio.org. We are also excited about the new APP which you may download for free and listen from your IPhone or IPad.
Over the years, Bill became well known as a radio personality, as an accomplished musical recording artist who produced several albums, and also as an author.
In 1992, Bill was inducted into the National Religious Broadcaster’s Hall of Fame. He received this award at the NRB’s 49th Anniversary Banquet in Washington, D.C.
This tribute is presented to a few select Christian broadcasters, who have achieved wide recognition in the field of electronic media, with the highest standards of quality and integrity.
Nightsounds is a not for profit ministry. Many listeners ask how the numerous parts of the ministry are financed. The answer is very simple. Listeners send regular gifts to Nightsounds. This is the sole source of funds to keep the broadcast on the air. We are dependent on the support of listeners…regardless of how small or large the gift.
Bill Pearce, pioneering radio broadcaster and founder of the Nightsounds radio program died February 23, 2010 from complications of Parkinson’s disease. He was 83.
All of us here at Alive in Christ Radio graciously honor him for his years of dedicated service for all who he Holy Spirit-influenced in the name our Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
