(New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Tenth Avenue North released their latest project, “The Struggle,” in August of 2012. The record quickly debuted at number 9 on the Billboard chart, and the band embarked on the ‘Struggle Spring Tour’ to support the project. (You can watch videos from their appearance at the Junction Center, on the videos page at Since releasing their debut project, “Over and Underneath,” in 2008, Tenth Avenue North have built a strong fan-base of support.

Stick to It!

Intern Sarah : August 14, 2013 11:35 am : Intern Sarah

During this summer, bumper sticker spotting has taken us some pretty cool places.  There are WJTL bumper stickers everywhere!  We have had listeners send in pictures of their stickers from New Jersey, Maryland and New York!   There is even a WJTL bumper sticker in Sweden thanks to a young man who came to visit and is now proudly sporting his sticker on his car.

A lot of the sticker spotting is done in our local area but we take our Bonanza packets to every live event.  Some of us even take our materials on vacation with us!  You can win the Bumper Sticker Bonanza from anywhere.

We are still out spotting stickers all over our local listening area.  More than that, we still have great prizes from local businesses, WJTL cinch packs and CDs from some great Christian artists.  So keep an eye out for a Bumper Sticker Bonanza envelope on your windshield or, as usual, you can send it in to win!

Intern Sandra: Back to School!

Intern Sandra : August 13, 2013 10:42 am : Intern Sandra

Intern Sandra here, and this morning I am overwhelmed with how blessed I have been by the WJTL community during my summer internship!

In the May of 2011 I walked into the studio at the old location for the first time, nervous and excited to meet all of the DJs and staff that I grew up listening to on air.  Fast forward two years, and I get to come to the Junction Center twice a week, hang out with some amazing people, and get to know the listening community better!  What a blessing!

The first thing people ask me when they find out I’m a WJTL intern is “Are the DJs and on-air personalities just as fun and kind off air as they are on air?” My answer is always a resounding yes.  Being on air with Fred and the Get Up and Go Show has been a blast, with many laughs on air and off.  I’ve learned so much from the wisdom and experience of everyone here, and getting to put my new skills into practice on the 9 O’Clock coffee break has been so much fun.

This summer I expanded my horizons past the Junction Center, and took to the Cookie Car to get out into the community and get the scoop on upcoming events with my “Intern Sandra Out and About” segment.  I’ve deeply enjoyed getting to know both our listeners and the Lancaster area better.  At Creation Northeast, I also got to meet many of our listeners at the WJTL tent, and was so happy to see that WJTL has impacted so many people as much as it has impacted me.

The love and joy that surround WJTL is inspiring, and I can’t think of a better way to spend my summer.  Tomorrow I head back to Grove City College for my senior year, and while I’m excited to go back, I know I’ll be tuning in online to keep up with my favorite station.

Thank you to everybody in the WJTL family who made this summer a joy!

New Tunes at 9 Roundup: Lost Dogs

phil : August 8, 2013 7:58 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! It’s time for this week’s New Tunes at 9 Roundup. (New Tunes at 9, one-hour of new and emerging music, weeknights at 9 p.m. on WJTL.) Trends in contemporary music come and go. Certain band’s are “of their time”; other band’s change their approach and sound as quickly as musical trends push in new (and recycled) directions. Finally, there are artists whose music remains true to their creative, visionary soul; music that is often decades ahead of trends, recording technique and fashion. Without a doubt, the music of Lost Dogs falls into the latter description. Since 1992, Lost Dogs have remained fiercely independent by recording cutting-edge Americana music, fusing together elements of Gospel, rock, folk, traditional Country and Country Blues.

Lost Dogs, who played at the Junction Center last week, are comprised of veteran musicians: Derri Daugherty and Steve Hindalong of the Choir; Terry Taylor and Paul Averitt of Daniel Amos and Swirling Eddies; and Mike Roe of the 77’s. For more on Lost Dogs, go to You’ll find music downloads, facebook, and the ‘store page,’ where you can support the band directly by buying any number of outstanding projects, including their classic, 1992 debut, “Scenic Routes” (featuring the late Gene Eugene of Adam Again).

Bumper Sticker Bonanza – Request. Enter. Win!

Intern Sarah : August 7, 2013 11:40 am : Intern Sarah

The interns have been very busy keeping up with all the bumper sticker requests and contest entries that have been sent in over the summer.  In fact, we have received as many, if not more, requests for bumper stickers as we have contest entries.  It is wonderful that so many people are so excited about WJTL!

As exciting as it is to receive a variety of colorful bumper stickers in the mail, it does not exclude you from sending your photo in to win.  Some of the most recent winners of the Bumper Sticker Bonanza requested their sticker just this summer.  Now their sticker is on display on their vehicle and on the WJTL Facebook page!

Even though it may feel like it, requesting a bumper sticker is not like winning a prize from the station.  Recipients are encouraged to pass on any extra stickers that they receive, but they are still perfectly eligible to win the Bonanza Contest.

Requesting a bumper sticker is easy!  Just email with your name, address and what kind and color sticker you would like.  We have both regular bumper stickers as well as window clings.  We also have the 90.3 bumper stickers as well as Kids Cookie Break stickers and magnets.

Once you receive your stickers, simply place them on your vehicle, take a picture, and send it in!  Just remember to make sure that you either include your address or tell us that you recently requested a sticker; that way we can sent you your prize!  If you have already requested a WJTL bumper sticker don’t forget to send it in to win!

Lancaster Circuit Riders Free Evening Sessions

stacey : August 7, 2013 10:39 am : missions, Stacey Gagne

1150386_619122808119274_1956881474_n 1012123_618230364875185_1977604232_n

This week, around 500 students are taking part in the School of the Circuit Riders where they are being trained and equipped to preach the gospel with boldness and love!  Circuit Riders, a ministry that has come out of Youth With a Mission, has the aim to “Save: by bringing the lost into salvation. Revive: by igniting Christians. Multiply: by carrying out the dream of God to go into all the world, preach His gospel and make disciples”.    Throughout the week they are being trained and then taking what they learn each day and practicing it with each other then being released into Lancaster to share what they have learned.  This is all being built upon “liv(ing) out a lifestyle of worship, prayer and fasting as a means of deep intimacy and anointed commissioning.”

There are about 500 students enrolled in the school, and there are at least double that attending the evening sessions that are free and open to the public.   Last night I had the opportunity to attend the meeting and it was incredible.  I am guessing over 1,000 people were packed into Freedom Hall at the Mariott Convention Center in Downtown Lancaster.  There was a time of incredible worship focusing on the joy of our salvation.     Some lyrics to one of the songs were:” This is my story, my testimony:  The love of Jesus has changed my life”.   We then heard an informal message about loving like Jesus and not putting limitations or boundaries on that.  It is so exciting to see so many people in our area excited about sharing the love of God and seeing our county transformed by that love!

Ashlea Brenneman is working on staff at this event. She has been working with YWAM in Kona for the last 2 1/2 years and shared about it when she filled in for Lisa. 

The evening sessions are open and free at FREEDOM HALL A in the Penn Square Marriott Hotel in downtown Lancaster.   They are taking place each evening at 7:00 at least through Friday.  The schedule online lists Saturday as “TBA”.

Visit the circuit riders website for information about the vision/history and more about School of the Circuit Riders and their Facebook page: Lancaster Circuit Riders  for posts specifically updating on what’s going on this week.
