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 April 12th & 13th, 2014:




Click for the Perrys Our Featured Artists on this program, the Perrys, have been through a lot in the past year. As you know, Tracy Stuffle suffered a stroke back in January of last year. Doctors didn't give him much hope. But his recovery is progressing, slowly but surely. And you heard me do a short interview with him on this program. You also heard a song on which he sings (which is an amazing accomplishment for him) on the Perrys' brand new "Into His Presence" CD. All of the songs I included from this CD on the program — and most on the CD that I wasn't able to include — reflect what the Perrys have gone through and what they've learned about trusting the Lord through the most difficult times. From that standpoint alone, this CD will touch people in a very personal way — because everyone has gone through — or is going through — some difficult things in life. It's been great to see Tracy interacting with people and even singing on stage to a limited extent once again. God is obviously honoring the many thousands of prayers sent up on Tracy's behalf.

The Perrys' CD featured on this program, "Into His Presence," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, April 18, 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.

As has been our tradition in recent years, this program the week before Easter had a "Cross" theme. Aside from the Featured Artist songs (and including two of them, come to think of it), all of the songs on this program were, in some way, about the Cross. I was delighted to see a recent study by Daniel Mount which found that, in Southern Gospel music, the number of songs about the Cross has been increasing in recent years. And so it should be, because what Christ did for us on the Cross is the way our individual salvation was obtained. This Holy Week, ponder anew what one song on the program called the "beautiful, terrible Cross."

On the Headline Update I mentioned that the 2014 Absolutely Gospel Music Awards will be streamed for online viewing on April 15, 2014. The link will be posted here (on our Current Information page) as soon as it is available.

 From the broadcast the weekend of April 5th & 6th, 2014:




Click for Browders Our Featured Artists on this program were the Browders. We visited with Matthew and Sonya Browder, talking about songs on their new "Time Machine" album. Actually, this CD has already produced a #1 song — "He Is Alive" — back in December. And their current #4 song, "Lift Up His Name," is also from this CD. The Browders tend to keep their CDs "alive" for a long time, so we can expect there will be more charting songs from this one over the next year or so. We didn't get a chance to talk about it on the program, but the cover photo on their CD (seen at right) is quite unique. They're all wearing what they describe as "Sherlock Holmes"-era clothing. Very dignified. I think. More info about the Browders can be found on their website.

The Browders' CD featured on this program, "Time Machine," 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.

Sunday Drive One of the "freshest" sounds to come along recently in Southern Gospel music is from the trio known as Sunday Drive. We visited with them on this program's Artist Spotlight segment. Their current radio song, "Happy, Happy, Happy," just might be their "breakout" song on Southern Gospel radio. It's being played quite widely. But, as you heard on this program as we played a few other songs from that same CD, the album (also called "Happy, Happy, Happy" has plenty of other good songs, too. One of my favorites is one of the songs I played, called "The Light." Sunday Drive is made up of Jeff and Misty Treece, along with Jeff's brother, Dusty. (We have the "Happy, Happy, Happy" CD available through Springside.com.)

Congratulations to the Grand Prize winner of our 2014 Great Annual Giveaway. She's Vicki Caviness of Max Meadows, Virginia. As you heard on the air, she's a long-time listener of The Gospel Greats program and has been entering — "trying for the cruise" — each year. Her persistence has finally paid off! She and her husband will be joining us next February on the 2015 Singing at Sea cruise from Tampa to Grand Cayman and Cozumel. Thousands of other winners will soon receive their prizes in the mail. Everyone submitting at least one qualifying, on-time entry will get at least three things in the mail —a sample Singing News magazine, a sample Gaither Homecoming Magazine and a special edition of our Springside.com mailorder catalog (which includes valuable discount coupons). Thanks again to all of you who entered. As I always say, our Great Annual Giveaway is simply a way that we can say "thank you" in a tangible way for listening each week.

Information about the Gospel Music Fan Fair, May 12-17, 2014, in Somerset, KY (as mentioned on the Headline Update) can be found online at www.gospelmusicfanfair.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 few stations 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.
