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 16th & 17th, 2014:
Not many Southern Gospel
groups can say they've been actively singing for 50 years without interruption.
But the Inspirations, our Featured Artists on this program, can. You
heard the story on the program (and perhaps many times previously) about
how Martin Cook was a science teacher in North Carolina and found
that several of his students loved to sing. Informal singing sessions at
his home begat the formation of the Inspirations as a quartet. Martin is
still very much a part of the group, serving as emcee and pianist.
The Inspirations' new songs on this program were from their new
"God's Word Will Stand" CD (official release date: August 19th). You've
been hearing the CD's title song on the radio for some time now as their
first radio single. This is one of their strongest recordings in some time.
Also on this program because of the group's 50th anniversary
I included four classic Inspirations songs, mostly, as it turned out, from
the 1970s when the Inspirations were really hitting their stride on the Gospel
The Inspirations' CD featured on this program, "God's
Word Will Stand," is available from our mailorder service, Springside.

I am still getting great
comments about our all-hymns program several weeks ago. That's why I was
happy to be able to have an Artist Spotlight visit on this program with the
Chuck Wagon Gang, with songs from their new "Timeless Hymns, Vol.
2" CD. You were probably singing along with them, right? Their
CD, of course, is
available through our Springside.com service. Another hymns
recording Gold City's "Hymn Revival" CD will
be featured soon on the program when it releases.

From the broadcast the weekend of August 9th & 10th, 2014:
Our Featured Artists
on this program were Beyond The Ashes, a Nashville-based trio comprised
of Anthony Facello (founder and tenor singer), Dustin Doyle
(lead singer) and Tyler Vestal (baritone). Songs included on the program
were from their current "Living In The Moment" CD (which actually
was released last year). As you heard Anthony say on the program, this trio
has a special heart for ministry to the church. That's why they create their
music to be enjoyed by a wide spectrum of people. At one point in the program
I played two of their songs that dealt with God's love, and mentioned that
there seems to be a lot of "love" in this CD. Actually, on their website,
they say, "Love is the greatest commandment. It lifts the downtrodden,
puts the broken back together, and most especially restores hope." That's
why "love is the motivation behind the ministry of this powerful group."
By the way and Anthony's told me this before but right there
on their website he includes this information about himself: "I started
out as a child singing in church and then with my family. Every week I would
record Paul Heil's program, The Gospel Greats, and I would listen
to those tapes over and over. I always knew that I was supposed to be in
fulltime ministry and God saw fit to open that door in 1993." So, I feel
as if I'd had at least a part in this ministry, and I'm delighted.
Beyond The Ashes' CD featured on this program, "Living In The
Moment," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call

The Northmen &
Cathy once a male quartet is now a mixed trio. They celebrated
their 25th anniversary as a group last December. And, of course, they were
our guests on this program's Artist Spotlight segment. The trio's lead singer
and manager is Alan Godsey. Alan's wife, Cathy, sings alto
and plays piano. And their baritone singer is Bob Etzel, originally
from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Two of the songs heard on this segment were from
their current "We'll Meet Again" CD, which is available through our
springside.com. Their group website describes their ministry
this way: "The Northmen are a ministry that entertains and uplifts the
Christian, as well as reaches out to a lost and dying world to let them know
that Jesus still saves."
