the broadcast the weekend of October 14th & 15th, 2017:
This was a special edition, similar to what we've done in past years
following the National Quartet Convention.
first hour, we spotlighted two of today's top songwriters in the
Southern Gospel music field. First was Rebecca J. Peck.
We've visited with her several times in the past, but she just keeps
putting out great songs. Often she co-writes with Dianne
Wilkinson. And with a combination like that, you know you
can't go wrong. You can find out more info about Rebecca on
her website. Jeff
Bumgardner's name also keeps popping up on some of today's
top songs, a few of which you heard on this program. You can
find out more about him on his facebook
page. I recently interviewed some more songwriters
at the National Quartet Convention, so you'll be hearing more from
songwriters over the next few months — something I enjoy sharing with
second hour of the program was devoted to the 2017 Singing
News Fan Awards, given recently in special ceremonies
during the National Quartet Convention. What you heard were
simply some edited highlights, with the award announcement and a very
edited version of winners' acceptance speeches (edited for time and to share
just the key parts). You also heard regular
recorded songs by the winners. We do this each year to
provide a "feel" for the excitement these awards bring without spending
a lot of time on any one in particular. As I always mention
on the program, these awards are voted by fans, readers of Singing News
magazine, as a way of saying "thank you" and "keep up the good work" to
their favorite artists. Although most artists would agree
that they don't do what they do for such awards — in fact, one winner
said as much on the program — such recognition is always a much-needed
and appreciated encouragement.
On the Headline
Update I reported the passing of music executive Dave Wilcox.
We first got to know Dave when he was with the Eddie Crook Company back
in the 1980s. In fact, he was the go-to guy for anything we
needed for the broadcast, and he was exceptionally helpful in that
regard. Dave, as one of the speakers on the Headline Update
mentioned, was truly an "idea guy." And his persistence
launched the national careers of countless artists who are now
household names. His coworkers, especially, were totally
shocked by his unexpected passing. In fact, he was supposed
to attend the recent National Quartet Convention in a working
capacity. But he felt unwell and checked into a hospital,
where he subsequently died. The unexpected nature of his
death makes accepting it just that much more difficult. Dave,
who was 60, will certainly be missed by all of us who knew him.

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.
