From the broadcast the weekend of Sept. 13th & 14th, 2014:
Each year when we do
our all-hymns edition, we get tremendously positive response from listeners.
That's why I'm glad to see so many groups are doing hymns recordings. The
most recent of these is the brand new "Hymn Revival" CD by Gold
City, as you heard on this program during our Featured Artist visits.
If you love the old hymns as much as I do you probably found yourself singing
along with some or all of the six songs we featured from this new CD. Gold
City had intended to put the song "Power Of The Cross" out to radio
as their first single. But after Tim Riley suffered his "mild" stroke
back in July, they decided to put out another song instead "Part
The Waters/I Need Thee Every Hour." Tim's featured on the first verse
of this song and it's quite appropriate as he continues to regain his strength
and recover from the stroke. His recovery has been exceptionally rapid,
surprising doctors, which Tim attributes to the many prayers of faithful
friends. But please keep praying for his complete recovery.

Revival," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call

From the broadcast the weekend of Sept. 6th & 7th, 2014:
Our Featured Artists
on this program were the Tribute Quartet Gary Casto
(manager and lead), Josh Singletary (baritone and pianist), Riley
Harrison Clark (tenor) and Anthony Davis (bass). Songs were from
their brand new "Journey Of Hope" CD, which is their first for the
Daywind label. Their website proclaims that these guys want "to make great
music that is both timely and relevant to the current musical scene ... while
never wavering from their God-called mission to share Jesus with everyone
with whom they come in contact." And that includes their message of "hope"
that runs through all the songs on this new CD.

I always enjoy running into Mike
Moran of the Torchmen Quartet, whom you heard on this week's Artist
Spotlight segment. As he said on the program he's been doing this for 40-some
years and has one of the best-known quartets in Canada. The group includes
Mike, of course, along with Sandy MacGregor, Jon Hisey and
Jeff Tritton. They're headquartered in St. Catharines, Ontario, and
their website is
you can find more information about the group. Songs aired were from their
current "Hymns: Lest We Forget" CD. I liked Jon's observation on the
program that when they introduce their new hymns CD to audiences, people
will immediately say, "Oh, that's a favorite of mine." As Jon noted, "You
don't get that with new songs."
We had a Listener Favorite
on this program that was a song from the Kingsboys. I hadn't thought
about them for a long time. As I mentioned on the air, when they group was
started back in 1982, the guys were between 11 and 15 years of age. The group
lasted ten years, winding up under a different name, Chronicle. But
I'll never forget the first time I ran into them. They were in the hallway
at the old Municipal Auditorium in Nashville where the National Quartet
Convention was held. Jim Hammil of the Kingsmen had them gathered
around him like a momma hen gathers her chicks. And he sure did want them
to have an interview. Which I did.
