From the Word...

"...whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things."
Philippians 4:8 (NKJV)

  From the broadcast the weekend of July 19th & 20th, 2014:




Our Featured Artists on this program were Declaration, or, if you prefer, the Declaration Trio — they'll answer to either name. They are Kasey Kemp, Jake Sammons and their newest member, T. J. Evans. If you're privileged to attend one of their concerts, or if you just get a chance to talk with them for even a short time, it becomes quite clear that their focus is ministry and their goal is to share the Gospel. I think that came through in our interview segments with them on the program. Even the title of their current CD, "Whosoever Will May Come," is a clear reflection of the Gospel and the Lord's invitation to all to believe and be saved (Rev. 22:17). It's no wonder that the title song, "Whosoever Will," has been touching lives in the ways Jake and Kasey mentioned on the air.

Declaration's CD featured on this program, "Whosoever Will May Come," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, July 25, 2014, 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. Note, too, that our "Featured Artist Discount" applies to any other currently in-stock recordings by this artist. 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.

Click for Joseph Habedank Joseph Habedank is a very gifted young man. You've heard him for the past decade singing with the Perrys — and writing many of their songs. (He writes a lot for other artists, too.) Last year he left the Perrys with no clear plan — until God provided one, as he described on the program. So, now he has a new solo ministry — and a new solo CD that releases this month (officially, July 22nd). You heard three songs from it on this program's Artist Spotlight segment, as we visited with Joseph. His CD, entitled "Welcome Home," (you heard the title song on this program) is available from our webstore, springside.com.

On this program I read part of a letter from a listener who is in prison. I have been amazed over the years by how many times we hear from prisoners who listen to our broadcast. All jokes about having a "captive audience" aside, this is certainly a "God thing" — an outreach for the Gospel that I never would imagined.

  From the broadcast the weekend of July 12th & 13th, 2014:




We've been doing an annual All Hymns Edition for several years now, and it never fails to get a lot of great comments from listeners. Those of us who grew up in the church remember the old hymns and the solid doctrinal foundation the vast majority of them present. As you heard Bill Gaither, David Phelps and others say on this program, the great hymns of our faith should be a part of church worship as much today as ever. They provide a useful doctrinal foundation for the young and inspire and encourage those who've heard them for a lifetime.

Click for Gaither Vocal Band Our Featured Artists on this program were the Gaither Vocal Band, with songs from their appropriately-named CD, "Hymns." As you heard them say, Bill Gaither, David Phelps, Wes Hampton, Adam Crabb and Todd Suttles all love the hymns. By the way, Todd — this group's newest member — is an interesting and genial young man. How many other Gospel singers do you know who've also been athletic power-lifters? Although the CD you heard featured the Vocal Band's previous lineup (Michael English and Mark Lowry left after the CD was recorded), the new lineup (which includes Adam and Todd) sounds great in concert. If you have the opportunity, please go out to hear them.

The Gaither Vocal Band's CD featured on this program, "Hymns," 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.

Click for Nelons When the Nelons dropped by our studios recently for an interview, they were positively bubbling about their brand new hymns CD, three songs from which you heard on this program's Artist Spotlight segment. The CD's official title is "Hymns: the A Cappella Sessions." And that pretty well says what it is and how it was done. The CD is available in our webstore, and you can find it and the list of song titles here.

For more info about the Quartet Festival in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, that was mentioned on the Headline Update, visit this site. Lawrenceburg is also the home of the James D. Vaughan Gospel Music Museum. I've been privileged to visit there. It's a fascinating place for anyone interested in the history of Southern Gospel music.

For more information (or to register for) the 5K run at this year's National Quartet Convention, as mentioned on the Headline Update, go to this page. Remember, there's also a one-mile walk available. Income from the event will benefit the Southern Gospel Music Association's Hall of Fame and Museum. The registration fee includes SGMA membership.

Info about John Lanier's 25th anniversary sing August 8th & 9th, as mentioned on the Headline Update, can be found on his website, johnlanier.com.

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 let us know if you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
