Featuring the voices of those in Time Square Church who were in the City on 9/11 prepared in prayer to meet the needs of people devastated by the tragedy. Hear from those who experienced 9/11 firsthand... and those who were among first responders to minister to the City. Woven between these reflections, Pastor Carter Conlon of Times Square Church speaks powerfully from the Word with reminders that we are to be people of prayer... so that we might also be "ready." Tune in on Patriot Day for this powerful reminder and join in prayer at www.pray.org!

From The Manager’s Desk- Looking Both Directions

Ken AndrewsWith Summer fading away, it's interesting to look back at all that has happened to local Christian radio and look ahead to the remainder of 2014. I know you don't want to hear this, but the Holiday Season will be here before we know it!

This Summer brought challenges that impacted service in several ways. KJOL-AM (620) took a major hit that was not only expensive but kept us off-air for a week. Then, on July 4th, someone backed into our satellite dish and we lost our network feed from the Moody Broadcasting Network for a week. More repair expense and loss of service to our listening family. Recently our Paonia/Hotchkiss translator failed and went off to the manufacturer for repair! Fortunately, our standby unit is working well.

And, there was some good news too! We were able to finally see our Sharathon goal met. Whew, that is a blessing! And, we were able to install a brand, spanking new transmitter in Delta for KJYE-AM (1400). It's working well with stronger signal penetration and - so far - no weather driven issues the old transmitter experienced. Hallelujah!

Looking ahead, as seasons change we can anticipate preparations for the Holidays. As usual, we plan to bring you the the best Christmas music, specials and programming to celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. (We might even find some ways to have fun, too...) (There are also some other "seasons" coming this Fall that might mean some "absences" on the part of the morning guys.)

The final months of the calendar and fiscal year of United Ministries are always ones I watch carefully, as it is crucial we end 2014 with all the bills paid and ready to face a new year. Even now I'm working on our budget for 2015 and would ask you pray for the LORD's wisdom and direction. In the meantime, your prayerful investment in local Christian radio is greatly appreciated! Thank you for your faithfulness to KJOL.

Kurt’s Music Notes-New Kids On The Block, 2014, Part 2

This month we continue featuring new artists heard on KJOL, which we affectionately have dubbed the “new kids on the block.”

Jason Gray on KJOL
Jason Gray
“Laugh Out Loud”
42-year-old Jason Gray is not exactly new, but many people may have just recently noticed songs like “With Every Act of Love” and “Nothing Is Wasted” (his first No. 1 single).  After enduring a broken and abusive home life, he became a Christian at the age of 15.  He suffers from stuttering but says his music emphasizes strength through weakness.

Jon Thurlow
“Strong Love”
Jon Thurlow has been a worship leader at the International House Of Prayer in Kansas City for ten years.  The ministry devotes itself to 24-hour prayer and worship.  (KJOL also plays “You Are My Hope” by IHOPKC members Matt Gilman & Cory Asbury.)  He and his wife Kinsey also minister regularly in local children’s homes.

Love & The Outcome on KJOL
Love & The Outcome
"King of My Heart"
Love & The Outcome is a husband-wife duo of Chris Rademacher and Jodi King from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. Jodi was originally a solo artist while her husband played bass in another band. When that band folded, they decided to join forces. In 2013, they were named New Artist of the Year by the Canadian Gospel Music Association.

Spoken For
Spoken For
"Hope Is Rising"
Spoken For is the new name of the Corey Brooks Band. Corey is a regular visitor to Western Colorado. He and T.K. King starte dhte band when they were teenagers, but now that they're growing up, it was tiem for a new name to go with their new, more contemporary sound. The name comes from 1 John 2 which says that "when we sin, Jesus speak on our behalf and brings us to the Father" says King.

Listener Comments- A Tour and Music Responses

Ya'll are doing a Fabulous job. Thank you so much!!!   
- Howdy - Rifle

It was great to listen to the Lenny LeBlanc song, 'You Were There all Along.' I became a Christian in 1985 and this song is very meaningful to me. 
- Anonymous

Thank you so much for giving us the great tour! We had a lot of fun and it was very interesting. We like to see how everything works. 
- The Scotts - Palisade

Thank you for the field trip that you gave the homeschoolers. I had no idea that you could fit so many radio stations in one building.
- Sarah - Grand Junction

We really enjoyed a month or two ago when the station played the old Colors Song, old-time Petra I think. Thanks for your hard work!
