New Tunes at 9 Roundup with The Museum

phil : June 18, 2014 7:38 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

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.)

The Museum’s latest project, “What We Stand For,” is available now on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play, among others. “What We Stand For” is the follow-up to “My Only Rescue,” a project that included “Not For Sale,” a song written and recorded to generate interest in the anti-human trafficking campaign of the same name. (To date, over $10, 000 has been raised to help victims of abuse.)

Ben Richter is the lead singer of the Museum. Ben was a recent guest on New Tunes at 9; we talked about the band’s ministry at their home church, Briar Lake Baptist Church, Atlanta, and the writing of the new project, “What We Stand For.” (Ben also talked about the musical growth of the Museum and the incorporation of Appalachian instruments, including the banjo)

Meet Intern Kristin!

Kristin Heydt : June 18, 2014 1:02 pm : Intern Kristin

INTERN KRISTIN –  Hello WJTL listeners! My name is Kristin Heydt, but you will probably come to know me better as Intern Kristin. I am ecstatic to have the chance to intern here at WJTL, following the lead of many before me, including my older brother. After seeing him get to do all sorts of cool things with the station, I hoped for years that I might be able to have the same opportunity. To my delight, I was fortunate enough to have received one of the internship positions for this summer! Following my time here, I will be entering my junior year at West Chester University where I am studying communication. I am focusing on both the public relations and broadcasting aspects of communication studies, so being at WJTL is a great fit for me. My goal is to get a full time job working in sports media.

I have been a resident of Mount Joy for my entire life and am the youngest of three siblings, with two older brothers. My oldest brother Scott, who interned here at the station in 2008, also graduated with a degree in communication from Millersville, and lives in Lancaster with his wife and son (my nephew Carter, who rocks!) My other brother Ben also graduated from Millersville and just received his master’s degree in new media journalism. My mother is a teacher in the Donegal School District, and my father is the teaching pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Millersville. My parents have always had a huge impact on my faith.

In my spare time when I’m not interning here at WJTL, I enjoy relaxing with my friends and family, listening to music, taking afternoon naps and singing in the shower. I am also a HUGE hockey fan, and could talk about it for hours. Go Flyers!

So far, I absolutely love being a WJTL intern. I have done a variety of jobs including recording promos for the bumper sticker contest, assisting with live remotes, and doing the weather for the morning show. I love the opportunity to be able to have real learning experiences here at the station, and I always feel like there are impacts being made. The staff here is so great, and I am very lucky to be able to work with them for the entire summer! I hope to see you at a WJTL event soon!

New Tunes at 9 Roundup with Audio Adrenaline and Kevin Max

phil : June 12, 2014 5:48 pm : music, Radio Friend Phil, Staff Pages

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.)

Last week the announcement was made that Kevin Max will be stepping down as lead singer of Audio Adrenaline. After recording just one project, “Kings & Queens,” the amicable breakup finds Kevin Max resuming his role as a solo artist.

The new lead singer for Audio Adrenaline will be former Abandon vocalist, Josh Engler. Will McGinniss, founding member and bassist with Audio Adrenaline stated, “God is a creative and redemptive God. (Josh’s) work with Abandon speaks for itself.”

Also last week, Kevin Max announced his new song, “Infinite,” and new project, “Broken Temples.”

Kevin Max told, “We are a bunch of wandering temples in need of the sprit to indwell us. Without the spirit, we are empty and in need of repair.”

Moment Of Celebration-Righteous Causes

john : June 12, 2014 3:28 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Moment Of Celebration reflects on the righteous causes that spring from godly desires.

These are words from Psalm 37:4 to 6. “Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him, and he will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.”

When we are fully committed to God, there is a purpose that is stirred in our heart that moves us to action. That purpose is the Gospel. God gives His followers different forms of ministry to represent Jesus to the community. One person might have the calling to confront racism, while another person might have the desire to serve at a homeless shelter. Another person might be moved to speak up and defend those who have no voice to speak up for themselves. Where the Lord plants desires in our heart, He provides a platform to shed light on the justice of our cause.  God-given desires become God’s opportunities to fulfill God’s purposes through us.

The righteous causes that spring from godly desires is a reason to be glad in the Year of Celebration.

Getting to Know Intern Eddie!

Ed Mowery : June 10, 2014 12:21 pm : Intern Eddie

INTERN EDDIE – Hello WJTL listeners and supporters! It feels good to be back in good ole’ Lancaster County for the summer, and it feels even better to be given the opportunity to be one of the interns here at WJTL! About nine months out of the year for the past three years, I’ve been studying at Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, pursuing a degree in music business and technology and am currently on track to graduate in December of this year. I volunteered with WJTL last summer and when it came time for me to choose the internship that’s required for graduation, I thought how exciting it would be to experience the radio industry and how it works inside and out firsthand. I applied in January, and in a few weeks, I was in!

I’m a native of Lancaster born into a family of five, growing up with an older brother and younger sister. My brother graduated from Evangel last year and is currently pursuing medical school in hopes of becoming a doctor, and my sister just finished her sophomore year of high school. My mother is a teacher at CTC, and my father owns his own painting and contracting business where I sometimes work during my summers home from school. When I’m not working or studying at school, I like to spend time with family and friends, write and listen to music, and fitness train at the gym.

If you’re wondering what a music business and technology degree entails, I’ll go into a little more detail of what my experience has been like at Evangel. When I first got there, I had no idea what I wanted to do (like most students), but I knew that I had a passion for music, and so I decided to take a step in that direction and start taking music classes. I also knew I wanted to be involved in worship for their chapel services; I had been leading worship at church since 8th grade, and knew that that was the ministry God wanted me to be in. So, I met a few guys who wanted to form a band, and we tried out. I became one of the chapel worship leaders my second semester, and I was blessed to be able to serve the school at that position for six semesters. Evangel has a worship leadership degree, but I decided that since I already had significant experience in leading worship, I would focus my studies in another area of music where I could develop new skills. That area ended up being recording and producing. For the past few semesters, my college experience has consisted of spending long hours in the studio recording and producing music, finding musicians to play for my tracks, and meeting tight deadlines while trying to complete other projects and assignments. It’s been overwhelming at times, but I can’t say that I regret choosing this degree. It’s been really fun, and I’ve learned an extensive amount about music and the industry in the past couple years.

WJTL has offered a great temporary change from the work that I’ve grown accustomed to at school, and they don’t mess around. On the first day, I was on-air within fifteen minutes doing the weather. Definitely not what I was expecting. Other than being a meteorologist, I’ve been able to work in the production studio, recording and producing a promo spot for the bumper sticker contest. So far that’s been my favorite part, considering I get to use some of the production skills that I’ve picked up at school. In addition, I’ve also been able to help set up and tear down stages for a couple of the concerts that WJTL has hosted and shadow the sound engineers behind the scenes. I’m looking forward to the rest of the summer here with the awesome staff at FM 90.3! It’s gonna be a blast!
