From The Manager’s Desk- “When It Rains…
...it pours!" And given the weather we've had recently, I think we can all relate. We've been very busy with summer repairs, dealing with site issues, equipment damage and more. Thankfully, we are getting a handle on them and hope to see needed maintenance and repairs done soon. In particular now, we've had some issues in Paonia with our 91.3 FM signal that we hope we're getting an handle on. We are working off a back-up unit as we try to determine the full problem. Your prayers for our engineers would be greatly appreciated. Thundershower activity on site has made it especially interesting to get work done there (a tall, "lightning rod" called a tower is a sobering deterrent during lightning storms.) Hopefully we can get this behind us soon, but the good news is that we know "He reigns" even when it pours rain and we experience technical challenges!
As we look at the first seven months of the year (2014 is racing by us!) we are encouraged by the faithfulness of so many of you in our listening family. Our cash flow this year has been better that usual and that takes off a lot of pressure as we do our best to be good stewards of your investment in local Christian radio. Thank you! That said, please continue to remember our consistent needs so we can continue to share the Good News of Christ on the Western Slope and around the globe via the worldwide web. We depend on the LORD to meet our needs through your faithful, prayerful support of KJOL! And again, thank you.
Because He "reigns!"
Ken Andrews, Manager
It’s time for another installment of our occasional feature introducing new artists who are heard on KJOL. This crop features a group that almost qualifies as “kids” as all of them are in their 20s.
“How Can It Be”
22-year-old Lauren Daigle got her start in entertainment as a three-year-old by appearing as a camel in a church play at her home in Lafayette, Louisiana. After an unsuccessful tryout on American Idol in 2010, she returned in 2012, where she just missed reaching the round of 24.
Brad & Rebekah
“The Heart of the Father”
Husband and wife worship leaders Brad & Rebekah met when Brad’s all boy worship team in Minneapolis decided they wanted a female lead. Rebekah walked past their dinner table at that moment and the rest is history. Brad & Rebekah later married and now travel full-time. In 2013, they visited the Children of Watoto orphanage in Uganda, which is featured on their current song “The Heart of the Father.”
“That Kind of Faith”
OBB stands for “Oswald Brothers Band.” Homeschoolers Zachary (22), Jacob (20), and Nicholas (19) grew up in Duluth, Georgia (where they all shared the same room!). At their grandmother’s suggestion, they made their national debut on CBS This Morning’s Singing Family Faceoff. www.cbsnews.com/news/oswald-bros-singing-family-finalists
They grew up serving on the worship team at Passion City Church in Atlanta with Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin.
“More of You”
Tennessee native Colton Dixon is one of many Christian artists whose career was launched on “American Idol.” Dixon finished in the Top 7 during Season 11 of in 2012. He won a Dove Award in 2013 for “Best Contemporary Album.” He and his sister Schyler also have a Christian rock band called Messenger.
“You Call Me By Name”
Brittany is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter raised in Syracuse, New York. After studying classical piano, she decided to pursue a full time music career. She was involved with worship ministry at several churches including Saddleback Church (Rick Warren). She now lives in Atlanta.
Thank you for giving us 'Jungle Jam' again this summer. Way to funny! God bless you!

Thank you all at KJOL for your ministry there. I remember what it was like when you weren't there. It was like a huge hole in every day. KJOL helps keep me focused on what is really important.
- Jen, Meeker
Thank you for making every day better!
- Debbie, Palisade
Thank you for fixing the 620 AM connection. That is what I listen to at work (as FM doesn't come in there). Thank you!
- Jayme, Grand Junction
Thank you for being there in our daily lives.
