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 August 30th & 31st, 2014:
Mark Bishop, our Featured Artist on this program, has been writing songs,
singing songs and recording songs for thirty years and we've known
him for virtually all of those years. Starting out singing with his dad and
brother as the Bishops, Mark began his solo ministry in 2002 and has been
doing very well ever since. He writes virtually all of the songs he sings,
and has a reputation as a story-teller in song. In fact, he loves to
write "story songs," as he explained on the broadcast. Mark is one of the
nicest Christian men you'd ever want to meet. (Photo above: Paul Heil,
Mark Bishop and Shelia Heil, on stage at a recent concert venue.)
If you have a good
memory, you'll recall that we featured Mark's current "This Is What It's
All About" CD several months ago on the broadcast. But, as this edition
was a countdown, and since Mark had a song in the top 20, we decided to feature
him again with all previously-unused material (except for that chart
song) especially since he was kind enough to stop by our studios
two weeks ago to update his interview.
Mark Bishop's CD featured on this program, "This Is What It's All
About," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call
1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, September 5th, 2014, ask for the

From the broadcast the weekend of August 23rd & 24th, 2014:
The Down East Boys, our Featured Artists on this
program, have always had an outstanding quartet sound. But I think their
current blend is the best ever with Ricky Carden, Daryl Paschal, Tony
Jarman (known to fans from his days with Poet Voices, Legacy Five and
others groups) and bass Joe Brinkley (who joined just this year).
In fact, you heard Ricky say on the program that their new CD emphasizes
the quartet sound. "If I Know Him" is a solid song, chosen as their
first radio song from this CD. I'd recommend the title song, "Beyond The
Blue," for a followup another solid quartet song. I like what
Ricky has posted about the group's goals: "Our goal has always been to
choose songs that would encourage and challenge the Christian, while also
reaching out to the lost, and pointing people to the cross, so tht Jesus
might be lifted up. If we fail to do this we have failed in our calling."

It's good to have our
Artist Spotlight guests, the Hoskins Family, back. As you heard Reva
Hoskins explain on the program, they were off the road for seven years
taking care of aging parents at home, both of whom has now passed on to glory.
It looks like, in their return, the Hoskins Family has hit the ground running
with a very popular radio song, "God Is Big." It features third-generation
member, Abigail Aldridge, who is Angie Aldridge's daughter.
And Angie, in turn, is Rick and Reva Hoskins' daughter. By the way, Angie
mentioned on the air that her daughter is 16. Well, since the interview,
she's turned 17, so I thought I'd set the record straight, knowing how important
it is at that age. The Hoskins Family's CD,
"A Gathering," is available from our webstore, Springside.com.
On the program you heard a brief visit with the Tim Thomas Trio from
Romeo, Michigan. (That's located in southeastern Michigan near the base
of the "thumb.") As you heard, they have quite a heart for ministry through
their music. More information about them can be found on their website,
Here's that special email address I mentioned on the Headline Update
for Gold City bass Tim Riley, which you can use to send him
a "get-well" message (since his recent stroke) and/or a "happy birthday"
(birthday is Aug. 29th):
Also on the Headline Update, Mark Lowry was talking about the
Feed The Children program. Here's the website for more information:
Two quick items about non-Southern Gospel Christian artists of interest:
Steve Green was seriously injured in a bicycle accident August 6th,
breaking his collar bone and six ribs and puncturing his left lung. He won't
been singing for a while, but the prognosis is good. And Carman, who
was diagnosed last year with terminal cancer, is now certified cancer-free.
It's totally gone! "An answer to prayer!"
