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 Gold City Hymn Revival Each year when we do our all-hymns edition, we get tremendously positive response from listeners. That's why I'm glad to see so many groups are doing hymns recordings. The most recent of these is the brand new "Hymn Revival" CD by Gold City, as you heard on this program during our Featured Artist visits. If you love the old hymns as much as I do you probably found yourself singing along with some or all of the six songs we featured from this new CD. Gold City had intended to put the song "Power Of The Cross" out to radio as their first single. But after Tim Riley suffered his "mild" stroke back in July, they decided to put out another song instead — "Part The Waters/I Need Thee Every Hour." Tim's featured on the first verse of this song and it's quite appropriate as he continues to regain his strength and recover from the stroke. His recovery has been exceptionally rapid, surprising doctors, which Tim attributes to the many prayers of faithful friends. But please keep praying for his complete recovery.

Gold City's CD featured on this program, "Hymn Revival," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, Sept. 19th, 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.

The second hour of this program included all ten of the finalist songs nominated by Singing News magazine readers as "Song of the Year." The winning song will be announced during the Fan Awards Ceremony at the National Quartet Convention, Thursday, September 25th. NOTE: A special CD featuring all ten of these nominated songs is available through Springside.com. Click here for more information.

Information about the National Quartet Convention, as mentioned on the Headline Update, can be found at http://www.natqc.com.

On the Headline Update I mentioned the special 5K run the Southern Gospel Music Association is hosting at the NQC as a fundraiser for their Hall of Fame and Museum. The link for more info and to register was much too involved to mention on the air, but here's the link for information and here's the link to register.

Click for Tribute Quartet Our Featured Artists on this program were the Tribute QuartetGary Casto (manager and lead), Josh Singletary (baritone and pianist), Riley Harrison Clark (tenor) and Anthony Davis (bass). Songs were from their brand new "Journey Of Hope" CD, which is their first for the Daywind label. Their website proclaims that these guys want "to make great music that is both timely and relevant to the current musical scene ... while never wavering from their God-called mission to share Jesus with everyone with whom they come in contact." And that includes their message of "hope" that runs through all the songs on this new CD.

Tribute Quartet's CD featured on this program, "Journey Of Hope," 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.

Torchmen Quartet I always enjoy running into Mike Moran of the Torchmen Quartet, whom you heard on this week's Artist Spotlight segment. As he said on the program he's been doing this for 40-some years and has one of the best-known quartets in Canada. The group includes Mike, of course, along with Sandy MacGregor, Jon Hisey and Jeff Tritton. They're headquartered in St. Catharines, Ontario, and their website is www.torchqt.com, where you can find more information about the group. Songs aired were from their current "Hymns: Lest We Forget" CD. I liked Jon's observation on the program that when they introduce their new hymns CD to audiences, people will immediately say, "Oh, that's a favorite of mine." As Jon noted, "You don't get that with new songs."

The Kingsboys (1982)We had a Listener Favorite on this program that was a song from the Kingsboys. I hadn't thought about them for a long time. As I mentioned on the air, when they group was started back in 1982, the guys were between 11 and 15 years of age. The group lasted ten years, winding up under a different name, Chronicle. But I'll never forget the first time I ran into them. They were in the hallway at the old Municipal Auditorium in Nashville where the National Quartet Convention was held. Jim Hammil of the Kingsmen had them gathered around him like a momma hen gathers her chicks. And he sure did want them to have an interview. Which I did.

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.
