What better way to celebrate Street Week for Jessa Anderson‘s new release Whole than by seeing her “Live From The Junction Center”?! Good news: you’ll have the chance to do just that. Jessa will be here this Sunday, April 13th at 7PM. She’ll play a mini-concert, including some songs from her new CD! (We like the track “Idols”, which we currently play from time to time on New Tunes at 9.)
On Thursday, April 10th, we’ll give you the chance to win your way onto our guest list for this exclusive event. That means you would be part of our live studio audience as we broadcast the event live on air. Those in attendance will also enjoy coffee courtesy of The Good Java Company and whoopie pies provided by Dutch Way Country Markets with locations in Myerstown, Gap and Schaefferstown! So, put us on speed dial and listen for your chance to call in and win all day long!
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!

Ellie Holcomb is new to WJTL’s library of artists–we’ve been playing her song “The Broken Beautiful” lately. She’s married to Drew Holcomb and was part of Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. Her dad’s name may ring a bell: Brown Bannister. Brown had a few of his own songs air on WJTL back in the early 80′s including his hit “Talk To One Another”. Bannister is best known for his work in the audio engineering, recording and production industry. He won 25 Dove Awards and 14 Grammys. If you’ve read the liner notes on your cassettes and CDs over the years, you’ve probably spotted his name on a few of your favorite projects. Brown Bannister has written lots of songs, notably for Amy Grant (among many others).
Ellie Holcomb and Brown Bannister will be Live From The Junction Center this Friday morning at 7:00! It’ll be a great morning of acoustic music in front of a live studio audience that we’ll air on the radio. Space is limited for this exclusive event, but you could be a part of it! We’ll serve a light breakfast including Good Java from The Good Java Company. Listen to WJTL all day long on Winning Wednesday, March 26th, and you could win spots on our guest list! Keep our number handy: 717-392-FM90.

This week I took a field trip! I visited the Pathways Out Of Poverty exhibit at HOPE International‘s headquarters in Lancaster. Pathways out of Poverty is an interactive experience that invites visitors to remember the needy by walking alongside them for a moving journey from poverty to hope.
I’ve heard about the lives changed by HOPE and what they do over the years; but now I feel like I’ve seen it for myself. I didn’t physically leave the country; but the 30 minute exhibit sure makes it feel that way! I was given an .mp3 player and headphones and started at the front door of a typical home here in Lancaster County. Next, the exhibit took me to the huts and hospital rooms of people facing big challenges all over the world. There are 8 different real-life stories featured. I saw their faces, peeked into their homes and heard their very own voices describe what they were up against. If that’s where it ended, it’d be one big bummer–but thankfully the exhibit also shows the difference that HOPE International helped them make in their lives. It was powerful and something I’ll remember for a long time. I want to encourage you to visit! Click here for info at HOPE’s website and to book a time to visit.
