was our monthly Top 20
countdown edition, this time based on Singing News
magazine's monthly chart appearing in their July issue. The Singing News
determines the top-tunes chart based on airplay of current Southern
Gospel songs at radio stations across the land that play Southern
Our Featured Artists on this edition
were the Lore Family.
Based in Portsmouth, OH, they are
Sandy Lore and their children, Fayth and Samuel. We
featured this same album of theirs, "Mount Testimony,"
more than a year ago — back in April of last year. But songs
from it continue to get strong airplay, including their current top 20
song, "Trace The
Grace." "World Of Hurt," their next radio
release, is, as Darren said on the program, a very timely song because
of all of the "hurt" we're seeing in the world today. I
enjoyed that last song I played,
"Joyous News," both for its overall joyful sound but also
for its message.
The Lore Family's CD featured
on this program, "Mount Testimony," is available from our mailorder

on the Headline Update
of the Gospel Singing Jubilee TV Show brought back memories.
If memory serves, when I worked briefly in local television back in the
late 1970s, the syndicated show was aired on the station where I
worked. Although designed for Sunday mornings, I think it
aired here on a different day at 6:30 a.m. That was long
before local TV stations had much of anything on the air before 6
a.m. Forty years later, I'm glad the Southern Gospel Music
Guild has paid special tribute to the Jubilee and its
host, Les Beasley.
Here's a link that could bring
back some memories for you, too, with a video pulled together by Bill
the weekend of June 18th & 19th, 2016:
as this program did about the time of
Father's Day in the States and in many other countries,
much of the program was devoted
to honoring fathers. You heard from several
artists who shared their thoughts — remembering their fathers or
expressing the changes that have come to them individually when they
became fathers. You also heard the intriguing story of Legacy
Five's Josh Feemster
about how he actually met his biological father for the first time just
about five years ago — and how much they had in common, even though
they had no previous contact. You also heard several songs
reminding us of our Heavenly Father and His love for each of us as His
children. If your
father is still with you, be sure to let him know how much you love him.
Our Featured Artist on this program
was Gordon Mote,
with songs from his "Hymns
& Songs of Inspiration" CD. Ironically,
this comes just a few weeks after our all-hymns edition. But
Gordon's thoughts about hymns, as expressed on the program, echoed
those heard from other artists on the all-hymns program. He
noted how the classic hymns are so meaningful to so many people,
including the classic "'Tis
So Sweet (To Trust In Jesus)," which you heard on this
program. Gordon, as you know, has been blind from
birth. But it is amazing how God has gifted him with such
tremendous talents for singing, songwriting and musicianship.
He's constantly in demand in Nashville as a musician and even record
producer. And, on top of all that, he's the nicest guy you'd
ever want to meet. I always enjoy our visits.
Gordon Mote's CD
featured on this program, "Gordon
Mote Sings Hymns and Songs of Inspiration," is available
from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call
1-800-38-MUSIC to order. You can order easily from our
webstore by using this link to go directly to this item.
hymns program two weeks ago I mentioned that the oldest song I included
was "At The Cross,"
written in 1707 by Isaac Watts, sometimes credited as being the "father
of the English hymn." In my subsequent email
newsletter I said the first listener to email me and let me know what
that "oldest hymn" was that I mentioned would win a copy of the Ernie
Haase & Signature Sound CD of Fanny Crosby hymns.
Congratulations to the winner — Alex
Leech of New Zealand.
On the Headline Update, I
mentioned the 96th State
Annual Singing Convention in Benson, NC, June
24-25. More info about that can be found at http://www.gospelsingingconvention.org.

These "Current Information" listings are dated to
correspond to the program that is provided to stations to air on a
specific weekend. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a station may
inadvertantly air the wrong program—a week early or perhaps late. That
is why you might be hearing dated references on the program that don't
make sense, including references to future or outdated giveaways.
Fortunately, this kind of occurrance is very rare. But please
you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
