Meet Coffey Anderson

phredd : September 12, 2010 5:04 pm : Fred McNaughton

FRED MCNAUGHTON – I had the opportunity to attend Momentum 2010 this past week.  Momentum 2010 is a gathering of Christian Radio and Festival people who get together to share ideas.  In addition to great learning sessions, there were also many opportunities to hear artists.  One new artist that I was really impressed with was Coffey Anderson.  Half way thru Coffey’s song, he backing tracks quit.  Coffey continued to play with just his guitar and really impressed everyone by keeping his composure.  I think you are going to really like his music (it comes out later this fall).  Here’s the song he played for us in Orlando.

PS I did get to talk to Coffey and he told me he was just recently in Camp Hill.  Hey Camp Hillers, did you get to see Coffey in concert?

Meeting Slugs and Bugs

phredd : July 8, 2010 10:12 am : Fred McNaughton

FRED MCNAUGHTON – Tractor, Tractor harvesting the wheat. Tractor, Tractor harvesting the wheat.  What an incredibly catchy fun and engaging song.  You’ve probably heard TRACTOR TRACTOR on the Kids Cookie Break or maybe you’ve been one of many who have called Radio Friend Phil to hear it on the request show.  Even  more fun and engaging is Mr. Randall Goodgame himself.  Randall brought Slugs and Bugs to Creation this year despite a nasty gash to his lower leg obtained while building a tree house for his 3 children.

Read Randall’s account of his first visit to Creation.

Listen to more Slugs and Bugs song at their myspace

…and watch Randall wow the Creation Kids Stage Crowd.  I’m thinking you will find him as fun and engaging as we did, and I’m guessing you’ll be singing “Tractor Tractor” and “Bears” the rest of the day.

Jesus Loves You Ho Ho Ho

phredd : June 15, 2010 11:06 am : Fred McNaughton

Pastor Harry Thomas loves to laugh

FRED MCNAUGHTON – Pastor Harry Thomas is one of my heroes.  We tease Harry about looking like Santa Clause.  He doesn’t just look the part, though.  He is also “lively and quick”!  Harry always has a kind word, a joke, and a servant’s heart. I couldn’t tell you how many times he has been at the right place at the right time with a golf cart ride, a hand with carrying boxes, or a much needed word of encouragement.  Many Creation volunteers can vouch for the fact that Harry is the best example of someone who Loves Jesus with all his heart, and someone who knows how to serve others.

Harry helped me sing the Honeybucket song onstage at Creation West

This morning Lisa and I not only had a chance to Interview Harry about this year’s Creation Festival, but we also played his song, “Quiet the Lion” from his 1976 album.  Yes, back then they put them on vinyl, Radio Friend Phil!

In addition to being one of the co-founders (along with our own Tim Landis) of the Creation Festival Harry is also a Pastor, Evangelist, Singer, Songwriter, Radio Show Host, Dad, Grandad, and – added to his resume during the recent Creation Tour – video blogger!

Listen to our interview with Harry.

Listen to his 1976 hit song “Quiet the Lions”

And visit the Creation Festival website.

Watch Eddie’s video interview with Harry

I love Pastor Harry.  He is one of my dear friends and true heroes.
