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

From the broadcast
the weekend of Jan. 24th & 25th, 2015:
Our Featured Artist
on this program was Ivan Parker, who's just come out with a brand
new CD called "Threads Of Mercy." You heard four songs from that new
recording, along with Ivan's comments about the songs. I was struck by, in
just those four songs that we included, there's a common theme of encouragement
a theme of God's faithfulness to us as we go through all sorts of
trials. And "Silent Prayer" was a remarkable song about how God
understands the cry of our hearts even when we can't articulate our concerns.
Ivan Parker's CD featured on this program, "Threads Of
Mercy," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call

Southern Gospel music fans in general
might not have known the name of Lari Goss. But he certainly had an
impact on the music they heard. Lari was right there at the head of his class
when it came to arranging, producing and musicianship. As you heard on this
program, he received just about every honor that the music industry could
bestow and rightly so. Lari was a "class act," and knew what he was
doing and for Whom he was doing it. That's why, as you heard Mark
Trammell mention on our special tribute segment, Lari's primary goal
was to be sure the song effectively delivered its message. Lari, who recently
passed on to Glory, will truly be missed.

the weekend of Jan. 17th & 18th, 2015:
On this program we told you how you could win
a pair of tickets to the new Greenbrier Quartet Festival at the renowned
Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia, scheduled March 9-11, 2015.
Our Featured Artists
on this program were the Guardians. They are Dean Hickman, Neil
Uhrig and John Darin Rowsey. If you've seen these guys in concert,
you know they are quite enthusiastic about what they do. On this program,
you heard some songs from their current "Let My Heart Sing" CD, mostly
written or co-written by group member John Darin Rowsey. (You might remember
John from his days singing with Karen Peck & New River.) I had the
privilege of emceeing a DJ breakfast for the Guardians at the recent National
Quartet Convention and really enjoyed the songs they presented.
The Guardians' CD featured on this program, "Let My Heart Sing,"
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.
Our Artist Spotlight guests on this
program, the trio called New Vision, call Bellville, Ohio, home base.
They're family Trae Turner, his sister, Whitney Smith,
and their uncle, Jeff Burton. Songs featuring during our visit were
from their current "What Love Looks Like" CD. (I didn't include
the title song, but you'll hear it on the air in a few weeks.) As their
website proclaims, "Whether in a church house or on a Saturday night platform,
their goal is to connect with each listener and to share the message of God's
love, grace and forgiveness." More info about this trio can be found
on their website.
On this program I played, by request, the old Sego Brothers & Naomi
song from 1962, "Sorry, I Never Knew You." It's still a powerful
and, yes, convicting song. I promised to provide the link to an article I
wrote in my email newsletter several weeks ago built around that song.
Sunday, January 18th, was one of our occasional Listener Favorite Call-In
opportunities. I hope you were able to call. We'll be using those song
introductions that were recorded Sunday on the air over the next several
