From The Manager’s Desk- August Already?!

Ken AndrewsReally? Summer is slipping away...kids are heading back to school soon...can you believe it? I guess I say it often - but - 2015 seems to be flying by. It has been a VERY busy summer for us at KJOL with vacations, repairs and maintenance and planning a new project. (More on that in the future.)

Well, since August is indeed already here, I have a favor to ask of you: could you take a little time to drop us a note or email to share your thoughts about KJOL? August is "Letter Month" at local Christian radio and Your feedback is always welcome! We'd love to get those thoughts on what you like about local Christian radio - or even what you don't like. (I can't imagine what that might be!) You can email us at info@kjol.org or mail your comments to KJOL, 1354 East Sherwood Drive, Grand Junction, CO 81501. If you listen online, take advantage of the "TALKBACK" feature and send us your comments through our internet player. However you might choose to correspond, I really DO hope to hear from you. I might even share your note on-air, but don't worry...I won't identify you in any way!

You may have heard me say that our July income was a bit better that expected. Thank you! While that was very helpful, you may also have heard me say that our "Year-to-Date" income is actually running behind projections. So, please do remember us during August and don't forget to pray for us too. Nuff said!

Blessings - and thanks again!

Kurt’s ♫Music Notes♫-The Many Faces of Colton Dixon
Faces of Colton Dixon

American Idol finalist Colton Dixon will be in concert in Grand Junction at the Avalon Theater on August 8.  In June, we told you how he and his sister Schyler entered the American Idol contest in 2011, and he returned in 2012 just to support his sister until the judges urged him to enter himself.  He went on to place 7th.

Who is Colton Dixon? 

  • He is a 23 year old Christian pop musician who grew up in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
  • His first name is actually Michael.
  • His father runs a face painting/air brush company.
  • He was an extra in “Hanna Montana: The Movie” in 2008.
  • He sang in the choir during high school.
  • He and his sister have a Christian rock band called “Messenger.”
  • His single “More Of You” was the most-played song of 2014 on certain Christian radio formats.


Dixon’s hair style has changed over the years, as the photos document.  He says he grew a “faux mohawk” while attending Middle Tennessee Christian School, which sometimes got him in trouble with the school dress code.

Since his American Idol success, he admits the fame has challenged his Christian faith:  “I don’t think any human being was designed to receive that much credit,” Dixon says. Comparing the challenges of pride, envy and greed to the fall of Lucifer, he says “It’s easy to go down that path. You just have to remain humble and do that by staying in the Word and talking to God on a daily basis.”
