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/

WJTL will be broadcasting live from Community Day at Rapho Township Community Park this Saturday from 4-8. Join us as we enjoy an afternoon of barrel train rides, mechanical bull rides, face painting, and free food – all sponsored by Erisman Mennonite Church.
The band “This Way Up” will be performing and you can come by the WJTL table to pick up ‘JTL gear. We also will have our brand new Plinko game which gives you the change to win cool prizes – like WJTL Cinch Packs!

November is National Adoption Awareness Month and WJTL will be celebrating by broadcasting live from Penn Cinema as The Adoption Coalition of Lancaster County host their second annual Free Movie Night. Join the WJTL Road Crew on Thursday, November 7th for two adoption themed movies – Annie and Despicable Me. The doors open 6pm and the movies begin at 6:30pm. The ACLC will provide vouchers for free popcorn at their information table and you can also enter to win door prizes.
And if that wasn’t enough, The King’s Strings (http://www.thekingsstrings.com/) will be playing in the lobby between 6:00pm and 6:30pm. A family band led by John and Cindy King (and their seven children) have been playing music since ’04 and crafting their art ever since. Their musical style ranges from classical to folk, from worship to Broadway, ensuring something for every listener.
So stop by on Thursday, November 7th and say hello to the WJTL staff. We’ll be giving way wristband, KCB pencils, and enough stickers to cover the screen of an IMAX theater. This event is open to the public and registration is not required.
Penn Cinema is located at 541 Airport Road, Lititz. For more information call (717) 656-6580.
Day two brought rain and a river that ran through our tent. Though it sounds dreary, the day as a whole was equally as good as day one. My six frisbees were gone within a hour of people guessing the #1 condiment in the US. Some said ketchup, others said mayo, but the correct answer was mustard. Did you get it right? Before the rain came, the people came in waves to be considered for the two hot air balloon tickets; our tent was packed. But only one person could be the winner and that person was Gabrielle Capper of Altoona, Pa. Congrats!
In this world there are universal things everybody loves: contemporary Christian music, Kristi Leigh, and free Chick-fil-A. Tomorrow I will be giving away free Chick-fil-A for a year. Yes, you read that right. If you win tomorrow, you will be eating one Chick-fil-A sandwich, every week, until Creation 2014! Besides free Chick-fil-A, I have t-shirts, cinch bags, and coffee mugs to give away. But if you’ve learned anything from todays Frisbee giveaway, you’d know I love fun facts. So here we go: The average hot dog is consumed in how many bites? Guess correctly and you’ll be walking away with a t-shirt, coffee mug, or cinch bag. Good luck!
God is moving at Creation 2013! We spent the day hearing tales about what WJTL means to different listeners and the impact the station has on our community. It was truly heart warming to hear God in the stories that were told. We also gave away a boat load of wristbands and magnetic clips: they were like hot cakes, I tell ya. Our Walk In Love gift basket found a home in the arms of Maddie Feiser of Havertown PA. Though the basket looked small it was full of great items from a great store.
Tomorrows giveaway is going to be two hot air balloon tickets courtesy of United States Hot Air Balloon Team. Also, I have six frisbees to give away. Beause the number is so small, I can not give them away willy nilly; I need something in return. So here it is: What is the #1 condiment in the US? The first six people to answer correctly will be throwing a WJTL frisbee with their new found friends! Good luck and good night to all!
Our duffel bags are packed with shorts, WJTL shirts, and sunscreen; Creation 2013 is less then a day away. A Walk in love gift pack, two tickets from The US Hot Air Balloon Team and a WJTL prize pack, equipped with a soon to be autographed water bottle, are ready to be given away in our daily giveaways. I hope you are as excited for Creation 2013 as the WJTL Creation Crew. This year our tent can’t be missed and we have enough stickers to cover the Switchfoot bus twice over, (our goal is to give away as many as we can). Along with the stickers, we have WJTL wristband, pencils, pens, clips, bags, and much more. Plus, stop by daily for surprise giveaways that will be more spontaneous than Toby Mac’s stage show. See ya tomorrow!
