the weekend of Oct. 22nd & 23rd, 2016:
Our Featured Artists on this program
were the Tribute Quartet
— Gary Casto, Josh
Anthony Davis and Riley
Harrison Clark. Songs were from their brand new
CD, "Here For You."
Among them was "Never
Forsaken," their new radio single from the CD which is
already catching a lot of airplay. "God Of The Storms"
seemed especially timely, not only because of actual storms which have
recently devastated coastal areas in the Southeast, but also because of
the "storms" that come into each of our lives — difficulties that we
can only get through with the Lord's help. You can find out
more info about these guys on their website.
Or you could email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Quartet's CD featured on this program, "Here For You," is
available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call

I'm glad we could share with you some of the
current music by the Wilbanks,
as you got
to know them on our Artist Spotlight segment. Songs you heard
were from their current "Thy
Kingdom Come" CD. Group members include Terry Wilbanks and
his wife, Rene,
their daughter, Monica
Matthews, and Monica's husband, Jason.
You can find out more about them on their website.
Their email is email@example.com.
This program's Headline
Update included the first of four special profiles of the
2016 inductees into the Southern
Gospel Music Association's Hall of Fame, located at
Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. This one was about the
late Carroll McGruder.
You heard the acceptance by his son, Eric McGruder, who
said he is remembered as the "little guy on the drums" during the
McGruders' heyday. Profiles of the other three inductees will
follow in successive weeks.
the weekend of Oct. 15th & 16th, 2016:
It's always a pleasure to sit
down and visit with our special Featured Artist on the first hour of
this program, songwriter extraordinaire Dianne Wilkinson.
The eleven songs on this hour — all recorded by different top artists —
reflect just a small sampling of songs that she has out there these
days. As you heard, she's increasingly writing with
co-writers — also some of the best out there — and this, she says,
provides additional perspectives that result in even better
songs. I think the one song we discussed and played on the
program — the Kingdom Heirs' "Saving
Us A Place In The Choir" — will undoubtedly become a top
radio and concert song. We even got to include her first
Cathedrals song from back in 1982, "Turn
Your Back." As you heard her say, writing such
songs brings her great joy. And it shows.
second hour of this program was devoted to some of the edited sounds
and excitement from the recent 2016
Singing News Fan Awards presentations before a packed
house at the National Quartet convention, September 28th, in Pigeon
Forge, TN. As you heard, Triumphant
Quartet and the
Booth Brothers were the big winners. As I
mentioned on the program, these awards — audited by a professional
accounting firm — are simply a way in which Singing News
readers can tangibly encourage their favorite artists in their musical
ministries. You can find the list of winners here.
On the Headline Update you
heard about the "Celebrity
Dunk Tank Challenge" during the NQC to benefit Veranda
Ministries, an organization helping individuals and families address
issues surrounding Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. Donations
can still be made (although nobody will be dunked now). Info
can be found here.

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.
