 From the broadcast the weekend of June 25th & 26th, 2016:

This was our monthly Top 20 countdown edition, this time based on Singing News magazine's monthly chart appearing in their July issue.  The Singing News determines the top-tunes chart based on airplay of current Southern Gospel songs at radio stations across the land that play Southern Gospel music.

Click for the Lore FamilyOur Featured Artists on this edition were the Lore Family.  Based in Portsmouth, OH, they are Darren and Sandy Lore and their children, Fayth and Samuel.  We featured this same album of theirs, "Mount Testimony," more than a year ago — back in April of last year.  But songs from it continue to get strong airplay, including their current top 20 song, "Trace The Grace."  "World Of Hurt," their next radio release, is, as Darren said on the program, a very timely song because of all of the "hurt" we're seeing in the world today.  I enjoyed that last song I played, "Joyous News," both for its overall joyful sound but also for its message.

The Lore Family's CD featured on this program, "Mount Testimony," is available from our mailorder service, Springside.  Just call 1-800-38-MUSIC to order.  Call by Friday, July 1, 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.

My mention on the Headline Update of the Gospel Singing Jubilee TV Show brought back memories.  If memory serves, when I worked briefly in local television back in the late 1970s, the syndicated show was aired on the station where I worked.  Although designed for Sunday mornings, I think it aired here on a different day at 6:30 a.m.  That was long before local TV stations had much of anything on the air before 6 a.m.  Forty years later, I'm glad the Southern Gospel Music Guild has paid special tribute to the Jubilee and its host, Les Beasley.  Here's a link that could bring back some memories for you, too, with a video pulled together by Bill Gaither.


 From the broadcast the weekend of June 18th & 19th, 2016:

Coming as this program did about the time of Father's Day in the States and in many other countries, much of the program was devoted to honoring fathers.  You heard from several artists who shared their thoughts — remembering their fathers or expressing the changes that have come to them individually when they became fathers.  You also heard the intriguing story of Legacy Five's Josh Feemster about how he actually met his biological father for the first time just about five years ago — and how much they had in common, even though they had no previous contact.  You also heard several songs reminding us of our Heavenly Father and His love for each of us as His children.  If your father is still with you, be sure to let him know how much you love him.

Click for Gordon MoteOur Featured Artist on this program was Gordon Mote, with songs from his "Hymns & Songs of Inspiration" CD.  Ironically, this comes just a few weeks after our all-hymns edition.  But Gordon's thoughts about hymns, as expressed on the program, echoed those heard from other artists on the all-hymns program.  He noted how the classic hymns are so meaningful to so many people, including the classic "'Tis So Sweet (To Trust In Jesus)," which you heard on this program.  Gordon, as you know, has been blind from birth.  But it is amazing how God has gifted him with such tremendous talents for singing, songwriting and musicianship.  He's constantly in demand in Nashville as a musician and even record producer.  And, on top of all that, he's the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet.  I always enjoy our visits.

Gordon Mote's CD featured on this program, "Gordon Mote Sings Hymns and Songs of Inspiration," 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

On the hymns program two weeks ago I mentioned that the oldest song I included was "At The Cross," written in 1707 by Isaac Watts, sometimes credited as being the "father of the English hymn."  In my subsequent email newsletter I said the first listener to email me and let me know what that "oldest hymn" was that I mentioned would win a copy of the Ernie Haase & Signature Sound CD of Fanny Crosby hymns.  Congratulations to the winner — Alex Leech of New Zealand.

On the Headline Update, I mentioned the 96th State Annual Singing Convention in Benson, NC, June 24-25.  More info about that can be found at

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.
