You might think John Shirk of the Shirk at Work Network is the serious one of the bunch.  You’re wrong.  Sometimes he is so funny, Eddie has to wear a helmet!

Tom Dooley

phredd : November 11, 2010 10:07 am : Fred McNaughton

FRED MCNAUGHTON – Important news to pass along – Host  of the Journey – Tom Dooley passed away last night (Nov 9) after a brief illness.  Tom has been a part of the WJTL family for almost 25 years.  Please be in prayer for Tom’s family.  Tom was a nationally known radio host and speaker.  When giving his testimony he was always quick to point out that he came to saving grace in Lancaster county.

Tom’s career spanned over 40 years in broadcasting. He worked in several major markets including Philly and was a boss jock at WFIL Radio. He was also known for his voice-over work including many national spots. Tom started broadcasting in Christian radio while at WFIL in 1978. The program was called “Omega Alpha” and evolved into “The Journey,” a daily Christian broadcasting originating from KVTT in Dallas and broadcast nationally, coast to coast.

Dooley was with other stations besides WFIL including WCBS-FM, New York; KHJ in Los Angeles and KVIL in Dallas. In Virginia Beach, he worked for CBN as their National Program Director where he pioneered the nation’s first Christian music radio network via satellite. He also served as the official voice of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association narrating many of Graham’s national specials and was the voice of several of Graham’s books on audio tape. Tom and his wife, Melanie, became born again Christians in 1977 and Tom became an ordained minister in 1996.

Meet Coffey Anderson

phredd : September 12, 2010 5:04 pm : Fred McNaughton

FRED MCNAUGHTON – I had the opportunity to attend Momentum 2010 this past week.  Momentum 2010 is a gathering of Christian Radio and Festival people who get together to share ideas.  In addition to great learning sessions, there were also many opportunities to hear artists.  One new artist that I was really impressed with was Coffey Anderson.  Half way thru Coffey’s song, he backing tracks quit.  Coffey continued to play with just his guitar and really impressed everyone by keeping his composure.  I think you are going to really like his music (it comes out later this fall).  Here’s the song he played for us in Orlando.

PS I did get to talk to Coffey and he told me he was just recently in Camp Hill.  Hey Camp Hillers, did you get to see Coffey in concert?
