Our 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.

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

Our 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.

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
you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
