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 August 16th & 17th, 2014:




Click for the Inspirations 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 circuit.

The Inspirations' CD featured on this program, "God's Word Will Stand," is available from our mailorder service, Springside. Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order. Call by Friday, August 22, 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.

Click for Chuck Wagon Gang hymns 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.

By the way, if you're interesting in that Chuck Wagon Gang river cruise out of Knoxville, TN, during the nearby National Quartet Convention, more details can be found on the Gang's website using this link.

On the Headline Update I mentioned the new website Pat Barker has created to share testimonies about God's greatness in our lives. Here's the link for more info.

  From the broadcast the weekend of August 9th & 10th, 2014:




Click for Beyond The Ashes 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.

You can find more info about Beyond The Ashes on their website . Their email address is beyondtheashes@beyondtheashesonline.com.

Beyond The Ashes' CD featured on this program, "Living In The Moment," 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.

Click for Northmen & Cathy 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 webstore, 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."

More info about Silver Dollar City's Southern Gospel Picnic, August 22-September 1, in Branson, Missouri, as mentioned on the Headline Update, can be found on their website, www.silverdollarcity.com.

Here's the link I promised so you can watch the "Say Amen" concept video online from Brian Free & Assurance.

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.
