New Tunes at 9 Roundup with Family Force 5

August 7th, 2014 No comments

RADIO FRIEND PHIL – Greetings! Welcome to 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.)

Family Force 5 released their new project, “Time Stands Still,” this week. On Tuesday, the band was part of a live Q&A session at You-Tube Studios, answering questions from their loyal, and ever-growing fan base.

Family Force have been making numerous professional and personal adjustments; Long time singer Solomon Olds left the band in 2013; and Joshua Olds was stricken with kidney failure, sustained dialysis treatment, and made a full recovery.

Family Force 5 forged ahead, realigned, and recorded a remarkable new project; “Time Stands Still” is a joyous mix of full-throttle rock ‘n’ roll, electro-dance pop, and retro synth-pop. A recent post on the band’s facebook stated: “I was listening and dancing all over my kitchen; your music makes me happy!”

Derek Mount, a.k.a. Chapstique, was a guest this week on New Tunes at 9, and he spoke about Family Force 5 redefining their sound. Listen here http://wjtl.com/listen/wjtl-casts/

Moment Of Celebration-God’s Guidance

July 30th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on God’s guidance.

In Exodus 13:21, we learn how God guided and provided for the Israelites after they were released from slavery in Egypt.

“By day the LORD went ahead of them in a pillar of cloud to guide them on their way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so that they could travel by day or night. Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night left its place in front of the people.”

The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire at night was an indication that God was present with the Israelites. God was making a way for them to move forward in His plan. Without the pillar of cloud in the day, the people would have baked in the desert sun. Without the fire by night, the people would have stumbled in the darkness. God has not left His people without tools to go forward in His plan. God’s Word is described as a lamp for our feet and a light for our path. God’s Presence serves as our shade to refresh us in the midst of circumstances that drain the soul. Psalm 121, verse 5 says, “The LORD watches over you-the LORD is your shade at your right hand.” With a teachable spirit, we can enjoy the journey of moving forward in God’s plan, under His presence, in light of His Word.

God’s guidance is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Moment Of Celebration-Worship

July 29th, 2014 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment of Celebration reflects on worship from the heart

In Psalm 69:30, David, a man after God’s own heart, said, “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.”

It was common for animal sacrifices to be used under Old Testament law to reveal our need for forgiveness and cleansing from sin. In reality, they were not the real cleansing agent, but they did foreshadow the complete cleansing from sin that we can experience through faith in Jesus Christ, who was the perfect sacrifice to take away our sins.

David was saying that sincere worship from a thankful heart would mean more to God than the offering of an ox or a bull on the altar.

Hebrews 10:22 invites us to draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith. God has given us music as an instrument to lift up the name of Jesus with words that overflow from our heart.

Worshipping God with a sincere heart is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.
