Yay, Interns

stacey : May 26, 2010 12:56 pm : Stacey Gagne

STACEY GAGNE – Today we celebrated with Intern Justin to thank him, as tomorrow will be his last day interning with us.  This semester we were happy to have Justin King, a Home Schooled Senior and Andrew Jones,  a Sophomore at Harford Community College intern with us.  Both of them had the opportunity to spend time in the office behind the scenes, in the studio and on location at some events with WJTL.   We’ll miss you both Justin and Andrew!  Tune in tomorrow during the Get Up and Go Show for Justin’s last day on air… and you can also hear his voice in the Bumper Sticker Spotting Promo we are currently airing.

We are excited to have “former Intern” Sami… Samantha Piersol back with us this summer.  She interned with us as a High School Senior from Twin Valley High School and is now a student at Eastern University.  She’s really active with the regional/local music scene including booking for the band Skyhawk Drive.  We look forward to having her on board to help at events this summer including Purple Door 2010!

Video for “Waiting” by Receiving the Ghost

stacey : May 17, 2010 9:49 am : Stacey Gagne

I’m a big fan of local music and get very excited when I find artists that I love that are just around the corner.  That is how I felt when I heard about the band Receiving the Ghost a little while back.  They have put together a really quality video for their song Waiting that I thought I’d share with you.

You can find Receiving the Ghost on Facebook.  Stay tuned because they do have a new album coming out and might be changing their name… you don’t want to miss the great music they have to offer.

Here Comes Summer

stacey : May 14, 2010 2:47 pm : Stacey Gagne

STACEY GAGNE – Ann and I in the office have a theory that once National Day of Prayer comes… hold onto your hats because the Summer is about to come and go.  We go from National Day of Prayer to the Walk for Life(s) and Sertoma Chicken Barbecue this weekend and then it’s full steam ahead into summer events and the music festivals.   We have to consciously remember to enjoy each event and the days and nights in between.  Be intentional about your summer… enjoy the many awesome events that we have around us and your family time and quiet time, too!!

Four local organizations compete in Pepsi Refresh Project

stacey : May 11, 2010 4:37 pm : Stacey Gagne

STACEY GAGNE – I’ve been voting on my personal facebook and have re-posted on the WJTL  Facebook in hopes of helping our friends at Teen Haven win a grant through Pepsi’s Refresh Project.  Today, I received a press release encouraging us to vote for some of the other local organizations competing in the project.     You can vote for Teen Haven, the Lancaster Conservatory of Music and Aevidum during the month of May to be among the 10 grant recipients of $50,000.  The Skip Project is competing to be onee of two $250.00 grants.    You can find out the details and vote at refresheverything.com.

The link for Teen Haven is refresheverything.com/teenhaven and would provide a complete gym makeover at the Lancaster City Youth Center.  As a division of Water Street Ministries, Teen Haven helps urban youth develop leadership skills. These teens are passionate about improving the city and see this project as a way to impact their peers and refresh their community. It’s just a few clicks and could help teens in our community.  🙂   Having personally worked a few years  at Water Street with their youth programs,  I know too well how great a blessing a new gym would be to them and am glad to help give some attention to this opportunity!!

Thanks to Water Street Ministries for the details I’ve taken from their press release.  If you’d like me to forward a copy to you for your colleagues, please let me know.

Memory Making Artists

stacey : May 10, 2010 11:46 am : Stacey Gagne

STACEY GAGNE  – Today is the birthday of one of my lifelong favorite musicians… Bono from U2.  Even if you aren’t a fan … you might be surprised by how much their style is reflected in the music you listen to including many artists played on WJTL.

I was thinking about events in my life where their music were a part of the memory.   From high school to the present.  A friends lip sync, a college coffee house performance with friends, a gift given to me after my surgery, a concert with a friend…

Who are your memory inducing artists and why?  It’s kind of fun to think about.

An Encouraged Listener in California

stacey : May 7, 2010 8:40 am : Stacey Gagne

Stacey Gagne –

I hope you enjoy when I let you in on portions of some of our listener letters.  It always makes my day to read these emails and I hope it encourages you, too.

“I grew up in Lancaster listening to WJTL and now am living in Southern California with my wife and children after getting out of the Marine Corps.  I spend many nights up to the wee hours of the morning studying/pursuing my BA in Accounting.  While I am doing my course work I tune into WJTL via the worldwide web.  It makes my time much more enjoyable when I’d rather be sleeping.

God Bless and Thank You,

Jason  “

Spur Each Other On

stacey : May 5, 2010 4:32 pm : Stacey Gagne

Stacey Gagne – Last night while I was out running, I had 3 different people of different ages, sexes, races and social classes each wish me well on my run.  “Keep going”, “Looking good” “You’ve got it, girl”… WOW.  It was SO encouraging.  It brought to mind these verses from Hebrews 10.

We ought to encourage. Encourage others to persevere, to have hope, to run their race, to draw near to God without fear, to love, to live by faith and to live a life in which we do not deliberately sin.

All Night Prayer and Worship Leading Up to National Day of Prayer

stacey : May 5, 2010 10:26 am : Stacey Gagne

Tonight people from across the region will be gathering to “prepare the way” for the National Day of Prayer.  At the Lancaster National Day of Prayer Website it says:

“This will be a time for us to gather regionally as a community of believers with the intention of seeking the Father’s heart. Our plan is to go out “before the army” of God (2 Chronicles 20:21-30) the night before the National Day of Prayer, in anticipation of breaking up the “fallow ground” (Hosea 10:12). We believe that much will be accomplished not only in the heavenly realm but also in the atmosphere over the region as a result of the worship and prayer we will enter into. Everyone is invited to join this gathering as singers, musicians and intercessors engage the heart of the Lord humbly before the altar of God.”

Both Gateway House of Prayer and City Gate Lancaster will be going strong with praise and worship and prayer from 6pm this evening until 6am tomorrow (Thursday morning) when everything moves to the grounds of LBC.  Come out and join us!  I’ll be at Gateway House of Prayer for the last hours of the morning.

The National Day of Prayer is a great time to come together as the Body of Christ and the opportunity is also there year round.  Gateway House of Prayer is open and staffed 24/7 year round and City Gate has their prayer watch hours and info about their other ministries posted at their site.  Both are staffed by volunteers from many churches in the region.  God is worthy of praise and surely our families, churches, nation, region and world is in need of those who will stand in the gap in prayer at all times!

I Used the Search Feature

stacey : May 4, 2010 4:31 pm : Stacey Gagne

It’s just a simple little thing.   Just a little grey rectangle on the toolbar at wjtl.com… but it can be helpful.   I was looking for a specific blog that had been bumped down the page the other day… so I typed the word “mother” and ta da,  there was the info I needed for the Mothers Day Contest.   So if you are hoping to find something on our website, and aren’t sure where to start looking.  Pick a word or two and use the search option.   It worked for me.  🙂
