John Shirk

March 2nd, 2010

Hi my name is John Shirk.  I have had the opportunity to be with WJTL almost from the beginning. I began part time work here in September 1984 as a college student.  Today, I serve as Program Director and host of the middays each weekday.  It is a privilege and joy to share music with you every day that ministers to my own life.

I invite you to check in with this blog and other staff blogs periodically.  On this blog, I plan to share devotional thoughts that I share with listeners every day. Also, from time to time, I would like to share thoughts about trends, happenings, and current events that leave an impact on me.

The general essense of my radio show is to share what it means to follow Jesus. I hope that this blog will be a tool to increase your confidence that Jesus is the Anointed One of God to be the Savior of the world.

    John,
    I don’t know if you even remember me, but I just stopped by the station website and found your bio. We go back to MU. I worked on WIXQ as a Sunday afternoon DJ in the early 80’s. I also worked on WJTL for one summer (I believe it was 1987) as “Phil Strike” as the weekend overnight DJ. That was a long time ago. Glad to see you stayed with it and made it your life’s work. I know your heart is to serve the Lord and to point others to the Lord Jesus, and that’s what it’s all about. If you don’t remember me, that’s fine. I just thought I would say hello anyhow. I hung with Sue Althouse, Sandy Wilson, Carson Zirkle, Steve Winigrad, Ben Krothe, etc. I don’t live in Lancaster area anymore, but I do get out that way from time to time. I always tune to WJTL when I’m in town. I mean, what else is there, really, it’s the best. Thanks for your faithfulness to the Lord and His service all these years, and may His peace be yours always!!
