April 17th, 2014 6 comments

We’re on the lookout for talented WJTL listeners–we know you’re out there!  We want to see and hear your talents.  The WJTL Talent Challenge is wide open to any skill that has the potential to impress, entertain or amuse our crowd at Sertoma–that means musicians and more!  Individual performers and groups may enter.  10 contestants will be chosen to perform their talent on the Weaver’s Garage Stage (a stage we set up; not Long’s Park Ampitheater) at the 61st annual Sertoma Chicken BBQ in Long’s Park in Lancaster on Saturday, May 17th (in the afternoon).  Then, the audience gets to vote on their favorite performer–and we’ll award Visa Gift Cards to the Top 3!  $500 for 1st place, $250 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place.

Prizes are made possible by DavCo Advertising, meeting printing and promotional product needs from concept to completion. 800-283-2826

Praise & Worship Show Playlist (4/6)

April 6th, 2014 No comments

A listener named Tom Hubbard spoke with me at the Rend Collective Concert at LBC and made a suggestion for a Praise & Worship Show theme:  “Songs For Men To Sing”.  It’s a pretty good challenge–especially for a female to put together!  Thankfully, Tom also e-mailed me with some song suggestions for the playlist!  Now, I think this edition of the program will relate to and be enjoyed by all humans–so ladies, no need to skip this week!  Men (and women) of faith, rise up and sing!

If you have theme suggestions–or song questions–feel free to get in touch!
