From The Manager’s Desk- The Season is Underway!

Ken AndrewsIt's here...the time of year that offers the opportunity to truly give thanks for God's goodness and provision in our daily lives...and to thankfully celebrate the first advent of His Son and eternal life!

With that in mind, we are working on Holiday programming we believe will be a great blessing to you and your family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Old favorites and some new (soon to be) favorites will be coming your way as well as music focused on honoring the Lord Jesus Christ. Keep listening - tell your family and friends - and enjoy!

For the past several months I've been working on a project to upgrade our FM translator for Paonia and Hotchkiss listeners. We are very close to actually making the upgrade a reality as we've received the funding through a grant and the equipment is in hand. Hopefully, we can have everything in place before we launch our Holiday programming. Please pray!

For much of this year, you may have heard me talk about our actual monthly income lagging behind projected income. (I know...I no doubt sound like a broken record.) While it has not been a huge hindrance to our operations, it remains a concern because we are committed to honorably meeting our obligations and to end our calendar and fiscal year prepared to take on 2016. The good news - and it is good news - is we are steadily reducing the shortfall and with a strong November and December we should be fine. July through October made a HUGE difference and we will trust the LORD -  and you - to meet our needs so we can continue to meet the needs of so many who tune in to local Christian radio. And, of course - thank you for your prayers and investment in KJOL!

While our income may be good news, we remain committed to the most important Good News...that of the saving grace and redemption that comes through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. These are challenging times and we are privileged to minister the Gospel of Christ on the Western Slope, as well as through the World Wide Web. We so appreciate your prayers for strength, wisdom and faithfulness as we co-labor with you!

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫-New Releases for 2015

With Christmas approaching, here are some recent releases that may fit the musical style of someone on your list.

Sara Groves
Sara Groves

The title of Sara Groves’ latest offering is inspired by the floodplain along the Mississippi River near her home in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Groves, who struggles with depression, says sometimes her heart feels like it was built on a floodplain where it can be swept away by the annual floods.  Groves is also involved with the International Justice Mission, which advocates for victims of human trafficking.

Rend CollectiveRend Collective
As Family We Go

The Irish worship band Rend Collective says their name is inspired by Joel 2:13 (“rend your hearts, not your garments”), and they are a family of musicians who seek to be authentic, with open hearts.  Their latest album continues their sometimes frenzied Irish folk/rock/worship sound.

Third Day
Third Day
Lead Us Back: Songs of Worship

This is the first worship album from Mac Powell and Third Day since “Offerings” in 2000 and “Offerings II” in 2003.  However, this is the first album where all the songs were written by Third Day.

I Am They
I Am They
I Am They (debut)

Like Rend Collective, I Am They has a sound that recalls the upbeat folk sound of the popular band Mumford & Sons.  I Am They is a collective of musicians from Carson City, Nevada.  Their name refers to John 17, where Jesus prays for the disciples as "they."

Matt Redman
Matt Redman
Unbroken Praise

From the author “Blessed Be Your Name,” “The Heart of Worship,” and “Better Is One Day” comes his latest offering.  Redman began leading worship at the age of 15 at Soul Survivor in England, and later moved to Atlanta to help start the Passion City Church with other Passion worship leaders.  He currently leads worship at a church plant in southern England.

Listener Comments- Kudos & Response to the Morning & Afternoon Drives

A comment via Talkback in response to Ken & Dave in the morning show talking about listening via mobile apps and “the old fashioned way- on a desktop computer.”

Some of us do listen online on an old fashioned desk top computer.
- Rhonda, Kansas City, MO (home of the World Champion KC Royals)

Thank you for being so faithful!
- Debbie, Palisade

Kurt and Randall, I loved your play on the word "up" a couple weeks ago! It was great!
