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)

Click for Old Paths - These Truths Our Featured Artists on this program were the Old Paths Quartet, often simply referred to as the Old Paths. They are Doug Roark, Tim Rackley, Jeremy Peace and Daniel Ashmore, along with their new 17-year old pianist, Josh Townsend. Yes, this was the second time we featured their "These Truths" CD (we did first back in March), but they subsequently had a number one song from it ("Long Live The King" back in July) and their current song, "Love Them To Jesus," is, as you heard, in the top 10 for November. As Tim mentioned on the program, his family was surprised back in August when his daughter, Brianna, went into kidney failure. He's hoping to be able to donate a kidney to her late this year or early next year to eliminate the need for regular dialysis. Please remember the Rackley family in your prayers.

By the way, the Singing News column about "Long Live The King" spotlighting songwriter Dianne Wilkinson was in the magazine's October issue on page 56.

The Old Paths' CD featured on this program, "These Truths," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, Octrober 31, 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, including a new 19-song compilation of some of their most popular songs, called "Decade." 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.

This was our monthly Top 20 countdown edition, based this time on the top-tunes chart appearing in Singing News magazine's November issue. The chart is based on airplay at Southern Gospel music radio stations across the land.

On the Headline Update, I mentioned the new reality TV show about the Todd Allen Family. It will air Tuesday evening, October 28th, at 10 p.m. Eastern time on the TLC channel. If you enjoy it, please let the network know.

Click for Kingsmen Battle Cry Since the 1950s, the Kingsmen have been one of Southern Gospel music's premier quartets. They still are, despite the inevitable membership changes. In fact, some of today's group members will tell you they grew up listening to the Kingsmen! Their new CD, "Battle Cry," clearly illustrates that this quartet is still in the forefront of today's quartet singing. It's one of their best recordings in, as one group member said, perhaps 15 years. "Oh Yes I Am" is their first radio single, and it's one that is catching on fast on radio and among fans in concert. I'm hoping their next single will be the CD's title cut, "Battle Cry." It's another great song. But there are several more on there, too, that would qualify. More info about the Kingsmen can be found online at this link.

The Kingsmen's CD featured on this program, "Battle Cry," 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.

Forgiven Quartet The Artist Spotlight segment on this program was our first opportunity to visit with the Forgiven Quartet from Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and I'm glad we did. They have a good sound and an obvious heart for ministry through their music. The group has been singing since 1981, and founder Mark Green remains a part of the group today. They travel and sing primarily throughout the Midwest, having sung in more than 20 states. I thought it was especially interesting to find out that this quartet now has the last touring bus of the Cathedrals. That's history on wheels! More info about the group can be found online at this link.

We visited many times with the late Charles Johnson, especially back in the 1980s and 1990s, and he was always a very gracious gentleman. His music was loved and enjoyed by Southern Gospel fans and others, as well. As they say, he was one of a kind. And he will be missed. (Info about his passing was on the Headline Update of this program.)

Southern Gospel Prayer Chain items not included on the air:

  • Heather Ruppe was recently in a bad auto accident — a truck rammed the passenger side of her SUV, "totaling" her car. But Heather wasn't seriously hurt — for which she's thanking God.

  • Stan Hill of the Chuck Wagon Gang is still recovering from heart bypass surgery a few weeks ago.

  • Sylvia Greene of the Bradys has been plagued by "Sudden Hearing Loss Syndrome." Occasionally she's totally deaf, and doctors say even surgery won't help. But prayer and medical treatment has restored much of her hearing, which, of course, is pretty essential for a singer. So for that, her prayer is a prayer of thanksgiving.

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.
