 From the broadcast the weekend of October 3rd & 4th, 2015:

Click for Mercy's WellOur Featured Artists on this program, Mercy's Well, are about to celebrate the group's 15th anniversary, as you heard.  Anniversaries are always a time of reflection, so their new CD is partly that.  Although they've included three new songs and the remake of one of their previous songs, the rest of the songs are their "greatest hits" of the past 15 years, as judged primarily from how those songs have touched lives.  Congratulations to Brad Strider (the group's founder), Greg Gainer and Jake Wood for continuing on this 15-year tradition.

The Mercy's Well CD featured on this program, "Thanks To You," is available from our mailorder service, Springside.  Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order.  Call by Friday, Oct. 9, 2015, ask for the "Featured Artist Discount," and get 20 percent off this item.  You can order easily from our webstore by using this link to go directly to this item.   While ordering online, when you get to the "Checkout" page, find the "Special Instructions" lines near the bottom, type in "Featured Artist Discount - 20 percent" to get the discount.  Note that the discounted price will not be reflected online or in your first confirmation e-mail, but it will be applied here when the order is processed and before it is charged or shipped.

As you've heard, singer/songwriter/pastor Carroll McGruder passed away September 14th.  He had suffered from cancer off-and-on for many years, but this time it was too much for him.  Carroll was invariably humble and most gracious in our conversations with him over the years.  As I was putting together the special segment for this program remembering him (heard as a segment during hour two), I was reminded of Carroll's first priority — his heart for ministry.  Carroll and his group, the McGruders, who were especially popular back in the 1980s and 1990s, touched many lives, including those of other young artists.  The McGruders' influence on an entire generation of young artists was considerable, as you heard in Adam Crabb's comments on the program.  As I mentioned on the program, Carroll's songs will live on.  They continue to touch lives today — with a positive impact on eternity.  Carroll will be missed.

 From the broadcast the weekend of September 26th & 27th, 2015:

Click for the WilliamsonsOur Featured Artists on this edition, the Williamsons, are having a very good year.  You heard them say on the broadcast that folks are calling this a "breakout" year for the group, even though they've been singing for several years.  Their current "Tell Somebody" CD has generated two Top 10 songs already this year, including "It Was The Word" earlier this year and their current one, "Shout!"  They have a quality sound and, as you heard on the program, they certainly have a heart for ministry.  I expect that, Lord willing, we'll be hearing much more from the Williamsons in the years ahead.

The Williamsons' CD featured on this program, "Tell Somebody," 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.

This was our official Singing News Top 20 Countdown edition for the month, based this time on the chart of radio favorites appearing in the magazine's October issue.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of singer/songwriter/pastor Carroll McGruder, as reported on the Headline Update.  Carroll's many, many songs touched the hearts of countless Southern Gospel music lovers.  Most top groups in the field have sung his songs — and continue to do so.  Cancer claimed the life of his wife, Priscilla, some years ago — the same type of disease that now claimed his life.

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 if you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
