From The Manager’s Desk- Busy, busy, busy!

Ken AndrewsSummer is definitely here and we ARE busy! Vacations, projects, maintenance and repairs, and challenges!
Staff members are trying to get away for some time with family, we have some projects to work on - and of course - maintenance ramps up during the Summer. And, we were able to restore repaired equipment to our Paonia site after taking a severe lightning hit there in early May. (Of course, I think it is save to say that ALL lightning hits are severe!) While we were able to get back on air fairly quickly, it's good to have the normal unit up and running.
We are facing an especially daunting challenge - a serious drop in in income in May followed by a small drop in June. I'm really surprised by this, as we had a good start from January through April, but we now stand at a shortfall (actual income as measured against projected income) for the first half of 2016. As the Summer months tend to be lower income months, it could be a very challenging season. SO...please be in prayer for us, and remember KJOL's financial needs at this time. It's especially critical as we face extra expenses related to maintenance and repairs. However, I must thank the many who shared "a little extra" to help us during June. It is very humbling to see how many of you trust us to maintain this ministry through your hard-earned finances. We continue to count it a privilege to co-labor with you in presenting the Gospel through local Christian radio. Thank you!

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫-From Rock Bands to Spurgeon: New artists have diverse backgrounds

Here’s another edition of “The New Kids On The Block” introducing you to new musicians you hear on KJOL.

Zach Williams on KJOL
Zach Williams
“Even though I grew up going to church every Sunday as a kid, even though I said I was a Christian, there was absolutely nothing about the way I was living that reflected these things,” Williams says in his bio. “It took a trip to Europe in 2012 to stop me dead in my tracks and show me just how lost I really was.”

While touring in Spain with his rock band (ironically called “The Reformation”), Big Daddy Weave came on the radio.  The song was “I Am Redeemed.”  “I heard that song and it spoke to me," Williams said. "I feel like that was the moment I decided to change.”

Today, he leads worship at a Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

Erick Nieder
Erik Nieder (“needer”)
Erik may be better known to longtime KJOL listeners as the son of radio teacher John Nieder, who had the 15-minute program “The Art of Family Living” in the 1980s and 90s.  Erik is a worship leader at Watermark Community Church in Dallas, Texas.

the Neverclaim
The Neverclaim
This four man band from Portland, Oregon, got their start by leading worship at The Vineyard in Vancouver, Washington.  Among the teachers whom The Neverclaim credits for their inspiration are Charles Spurgeon, Ravi Zacharias, Alistair Begg, Chuck Swindoll, and John Piper (according to a CCM Magazine interview).

Temple Veil
Temple Veil
Brysson Rockwell, left, and DeRock Swaggert, right, were former members of a Christian hard rock band called Post Mortum.  When the band broke up, DeRock (vocals) and Brysson (guitar) decided to form, ironically, an acoustic duo.

“Despite their cultural and personality differences, DeRock and Brysson deserted their past, laid down their differences, and united their passion and love for God, people, and music in obedience to the calling that was tugging at their hearts.” (from their bio)
