 From the broadcast the weekend of April 30th & May 1st, 2016:



Click for LeFevre QuartetOur Featured Artists on this program were the LeFevre Quartet.  Included in the group are Mike LeFevre (baritone and the group's founder), Jordan LeFevre (lead singer and Mike's son), Jeremy Peace (tenor) and Jonathan Epley (bass).  Both Jeremy and Jonathan joined the group within the past year.  Jeremy was well-known as a former member of the Kingsmen and Jonathan as a former member of the Inspirations.  Their songs on this program were from their new CD entitled "Home."  That title song, which you heard, brought back memories of the Singing Americans who originally sang that song back in the 1980s.  The LeFevre Quartet's current radio song is called "Something."  It's a bit unusual.  In fact, before he released it, Mike called me to ask what I thought about making it a radio song.  He was concerned that it might be just a bit too unusual.  But — not to worry — it's doing great.  And people are, indeed, catching on to the song's message about how God can turn a "nobody" into a "somebody" for Him.

The LeFevre Quartet's CD featured on this program, "Home," is available from our mailorder service, Springside.  Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order.  Call by Friday, May 6, 2016, 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.

This program was our monthly official Singing News Top 20 Countdown edition, based this time on the song popularity chart appearing in the magazine's May issue.  The Singing News compiles the chart by surveying radio stations that play Southern Gospel music nationwide to determine local favorites.

On the Headline Update I mentioned the 2016 Absolutely Gospel Music AwardsHere's a link for the complete list of winners.

Info about the 2016 Gospel Music Fan Fair, May 16-21, 2016, in Somerset, KY, is available at this link.


     

 
 From the broadcast the weekend of April 23rd & 24th, 2016:



Click for Mark Bishop & Forget The SeaWe've had Mark Bishop on the program as Featured Artist many times over the years, but, at least since his years with the Bishops, this was the first time he's had a group.  The group's full name is "Mark Bishop & Forget The Sea."  The group includes, as you heard Mark explain, his two daughters, the younger being just 17.  Their self-titled CD was the source for the songs during our visits, including their current chart song, "You Love Me Anyway."  Note that Mark still does solo appearances as well as the group appearances, the latter of which are contingent upon availability.  By the way, Mark's song "Sometimes God Whispers" is very different from the song Jay Parrack & Vocal Event put out last year by that same title (which Mark didn't know about), but the overall message is similar.  This CD is slightly different musically for Mark, but his solid lyrics remain.

The Mark Bishop & Forget The Sea CD featured on this program is available from our mailorder service, Springside.  Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order.  Call by Friday, April 29, 2016, 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.   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.

Sammy EasomAs you know, I love to feature songwriters.  So I was delighted to have Sammy Easom on this program's Songwriter Spotlight.  His best-known song is undoubtedly "He's All I Need."  Sammy told the story on the program about why that song became so special to him personally in a time of bereavement years after he had written the song.  (The recording of that song used on the program was from a currently-available CD by Triumphant Quartet.) More info about Sammy Easom can be found on his websiteAspiring songwriters will find especially interesting a songwriting tutorial on that site that Sammy has created.  It's available directly here.  Sammy currently travels and sings with the Calvary's Hill Quartet.

Michael HelwigOn this program I included a brief conversation with Michael Helwig of the Blackwood Brothers.  As you've probably heard, he was recently diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease.  Michael calls such a diagnosis a "death sentence," as doctors have told him he has only 2-5 years to live before the disease shuts down his body.  It's already taking its toll physically, as Michael uses a wheelchair to get around.  But, as you heard from his comments, Michael is taking it quite well.  He's prepared for whatever happens during his battle with the disease, for which there is no known cure.  As he was overheard telling someone, "If I win I win, and if I lose I win."  Michael mentioned on the program that he's been getting cards of support from many, many well-wishers.  If you would like to offer your encouragement, you could send him a card or message through the Blackwood Brothers office: Michael Helwig, c/o the Blackwood Brothers, PO Box 280932, Memphis TN 38168.  I'm sure it would be much appreciated.

On the Headline Update I mentioned the Jackie Wilburn Memorial Sing, April 29-May 1, in Carthage, TN.  More info is online here.

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 if you notice this happening regularly on your local station.
