What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head?

phil : September 21, 2010 6:52 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil

Radio Friend Phil – I have a fun, simple question: What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head? How do you replace the song with a different tune? Recently, as I’ve been  jogging the streets of Lancaster City, it suddenly occurs to me that Michael W. Smith’s new song, “Save Me From Myself,” appears to be set ” on the repeat button” inside my head.  While I do like the song by Michael W. Smith, I’m simply trying to “jog to a different beat.” Since I prefer to jog without headphones, I’ve been applying different methods of putting other songs in my head. For instance, I will start humming a few lines of a different tune song– the moment I realize that  the Michael W. Smith song has sneaked back in to my brain again.  Another method I use is to visualize myself “turning the volume knob down” on the song that is stuck  and “turning the volume knob up” on the song I want to hear. So, what are your suggestions? What do you do when a song gets stuck in your head?

The Katinas Reach Out To Their Community

phil : August 30, 2010 11:08 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil

Radio Friend Phil – A story out of Nashville, Tennessee, caught my attention today:

The current economics are affecting many families including an area in one of the richest cities, Franklin, TN.

With the start of school happening, many children in an area known as “Hard Bargain” would have been wearing slippers to school, possibly until winter; however, thanks to Katinas Missions Ministry and Outreach, 200 children will have new sneakers on their feet.

Partnering with 10 Day Franklin, a division of Bethel Church Franklin, the two adopted the area providing sport camps, field day, creative arts and dinner nightly for 10 days.

“Our prayer is that the church of America will begin to have the same compassion for areas like Hard Bargain as easily as we would have for third world countries,” said John Katina. “You don’t have to look far to realize that there is need everywhere!”

The boys and girls who attend the Kids Kamps also received a Bible, Biblical Foundations book and at the end of the evangelistic outreach, a carnival was brought in to wrap up the week.

The Katinas consist of five brothers, James, Jesse, Joe, John, and Sam who are from the Samoan Islands and have been touring and recording for the past 20 years. To find out more about the Katinas or their Katinas & Friends Cruise, visit their website at http://www.thekatinas.com.
