 From the broadcast the weekend of April 22 & 23, 2017:

Click for the KingsmenOur Featured Artists on this program were the Kingsmen, featuring songs from their brand new CD called "They Don't Know."  This is an impressive recording — an impressive selection of songs which the Kingsmen render well.  The title song, "They Don't Know (What The Lord Can Do)," is their current radio song and reminds us about the doubters we encounter every day.  "Cost Of The Cross" reminds us of the price Christ paid on the Cross of Calvary.  "Fade To Black" is a most unusual song for the many unbelievers out there who feel this life is all there is.  There are, in fact, so many good songs on this CD that I played six of them instead of the usual four for a Featured Artist.  Cudos to Ray Reese, Bob Sellers, Randy Crawford, Josh Horrell and, of course, Brandon Reese for a job well done with this new CD.

The Kingsmen's CD featured on this program, "They Don't Know," 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. Note, too, that our "Featured Artist Discount" applies to any other currently in-stock recordings by this artist. 

Click for Joseph HabedankOur Artist Spotlight guest on this program was Joseph Habedank.  Joseph traveled with the Perrys for a decade before becoming a solo artist.  But he's been writing songs all along, and his new CD, "Resurrection," includes ten new songs from his pen.  "Here He Comes" is the song you've been hearing a lot on the radio, a neat song about the Lord's coming, His life and His future return.  Joseph's new CD is available from Springside.com.

Ben SpeerAs you heard on the broadcast, Ben Speer recently passed on to Glory after battling advancing Alzheimer's disease for some time.  Ben leaves a "big hole" to fill in Southern Gospel music. He was involved in so many ways, through his publishing, his singing, his work with the Stamps-Baxter School of music, his work as music director for the Gaither Homecoming videos, his studio work, his arranging, etc., etc., etc.  Ben Speer was always exceedingly kind to us.  Whatever we needed, he was quick to provide.  I remember the pride he exhibited years ago when he showed me around his studio on Nashville's Music Row.  There, mounted between the panes of studio glass for historic display purposes, was one of the Speers' original microphones.
