praiseworthy meditate on these things." Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

From the broadcast
the weekend of April 12th & 13th, 2014:
Our Featured Artists on this program,
the Perrys, have been through a lot in the past year. As you know,
Tracy Stuffle suffered a stroke back in January of last year. Doctors
didn't give him much hope. But his recovery is progressing, slowly but surely.
And you heard me do a short interview with him on this program. You also
heard a song on which he sings (which is an amazing accomplishment for
him) on the Perrys' brand new "Into His Presence" CD. All of the
songs I included from this CD on the program and most on the CD that
I wasn't able to include reflect what the Perrys have gone through
and what they've learned about trusting the Lord through the most difficult
times. From that standpoint alone, this CD will touch people in a very personal
way because everyone has gone through or is going through
some difficult things in life. It's been great to see Tracy interacting with
people and even singing on stage to a limited extent once again. God is obviously
honoring the many thousands of prayers sent up on Tracy's behalf.

Presence," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just

As has been our
tradition in recent years, this program the week before Easter had a
"Cross" theme. Aside from the Featured Artist songs (and including
two of them, come to think of it), all of the songs on this program were,
in some way, about the Cross. I was delighted to see a recent study by Daniel
Mount which found that, in Southern Gospel music, the number of songs about
the Cross has been increasing in recent years. And so it should be, because
what Christ did for us on the Cross is the way our individual salvation was
obtained. This Holy Week, ponder anew what one song on the program called
the "beautiful, terrible Cross."

From the broadcast
the weekend of April 5th & 6th, 2014:
Our Featured Artists on this program
were the Browders. We visited with Matthew and Sonya
Browder, talking about songs on their new "Time Machine" album.
Actually, this CD has already produced a #1 song "He Is Alive"
back in December. And their current #4 song, "Lift Up His
Name," is also from this CD. The Browders tend to keep their CDs "alive"
for a long time, so we can expect there will be more charting songs from
this one over the next year or so. We didn't get a chance to talk about it
on the program, but the cover photo on their CD (seen at right) is quite
unique. They're all wearing what they describe as "Sherlock Holmes"-era clothing.
Very dignified. I think. More info about the Browders can be found
on their website.
The Browders' CD featured on this program, "Time Machine,"
is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC
to order. You can order easily from our webstore by
this link to go directly to this item.
One of the "freshest" sounds to come
along recently in Southern Gospel music is from the trio known as Sunday
Drive. We visited with them on this program's Artist Spotlight segment.
Their current radio song, "Happy, Happy, Happy," just might be their
"breakout" song on Southern Gospel radio. It's being played quite widely.
But, as you heard on this program as we played a few other songs from that
same CD, the album (also called "Happy, Happy, Happy" has plenty of
other good songs, too. One of my favorites is one of the songs I played,
called "The Light."Sunday Drive is made up of Jeff and
Misty Treece, along with Jeff's brother, Dusty. (We have the
"Happy, Happy, Happy" CD available through

for whatever reason, a few stations may inadvertantly air the wrong
