KRISTI LEIGH — Purple Door 2010 is coming up this weekend, so this week we’re giving away a Purple Door Feedback Giveback prize pack! Comment on any blog at www.WJTL.com before midnight this Sunday, August 15th, and you’ll be eligible to win these CDs from Lecrae, B. Reith and Family Force 5!
To get the conversation going, I’m wondering who you’re most looking forward to seeing at Purple Door!

I’m also looking forward to House of Heroes, B. Reith, Seabird, Children 18:3, John Mark McMillan and Family Force 5! What about you? Comment below…

KRISTI LEIGH — Last week’s staff blogs got conversations going with WJTL listeners on a variety of subjects–from the lasting impact of Keith Green’s ministry to identifying what food Lisa Landis left in the WJTL fridge when she went on vacation. Speaking of the WJTL fridge, it’s time to show you this week’s Feedback Giveback prize! It’s a Natalie Grant “Love Revolution” prize pack, including a pre-release copy of her CD that hits stores on August 24th AND the accompanying magnet, as seen in this picture on the WJTL fridge! The CD features new songs from Natalie including “Greatness Of Our God” (the song we’ve been playing on the radio lately) and also a cover of the Brooke Fraser/Hillsong song “Desert Song!” Leave a comment on any blog at www.WJTL.com this week and you’ll automatically be entered to win! (And by “this week”, we mean before midnight on Sunday, August 8th.)
Kristi Leigh – WJTL DJ and yes, that’s me in the CD case reflection taking the picture!

Kristi Leigh – WJTL DJ and Fan of Contest Happiness
KRISTI LEIGH – Sometimes listeners ask me what I do at WJTL when I’m not DJing; and answering that question always reminds me how much I love my job! When I’m not on the radio, I spend time in our production rooms and on my office duties, which include contest planning (one of my favorite tasks)! We love giving our listeners prizes and brainstorming creative new ways to give stuff away! Eddie and I had a conversation recently about the blogs on our new website and the comments we have been receiving on them, which sparked another contest idea: to award a weekly prize just to say “thanks for commenting!” When it came to naming the contest, Eddie was fast and catchy as always: “Feedback Giveback!” We give back prizes for the feedback you give on our blogs!
How can you be eligible for the prizes?
-Keep up with our blogs!
-Leave a comment whenever you want!
-Every Monday, we’ll pick a winner and mail out a prize!

EDDIE DANIELS – A few weeks ago, Kristi Leigh and I were brainstorming ideas for Creation 2010. Last year we had artists play and autograph a Wii console when they came into the WJTL trailer for an interview at the Creation Festival. We then auctioned off the Wii and gave all of the money from the auction to our friends at Compassion International.
We wanted to do something similar – yet different – this year: something that would be fun for the artists to interact with while they were in for their interview and at the same time something that could end up helping the folks at Compassion.
A short while later, we landed on the idea of creating the first-ever WJTL Creation Coloring Book. I would doodle cartoons of all of the artists appearing on the Main Stage and the Fringe Stage at Creation East and when they came in to interview with Kristi or Ashlea, they could autograph and color their page.
After the festival, we’ll put the coloring book up for auction on eBay and once again donate the proceeds to Compassion International.
It’s a project we’re all really excited about and hopefully the artists (and you!) will be, too. Chris and Conrad found their doodle and talked with Kristi about it on the air. Fortunately, they seemed to be happy with their cartoon doppelgangers. Below are the doodles that make up the coloring book. Of course, this is what they look like pre-Creation Festival, before they’ve been colored in and autographed. We’ll keep you posted and let you know as soon as the coloring book goes up for auction.
I hope you enjoy these doodles and have as much fun trying to figure out who they are as I had drawing them!
