    Hey Phil-this is in response to how long ago you heard me call in to request a song(s). I think it’s been like 9 years. Wow! What accent were you talking about? lol I have heard that a few times before. And YOUR voice hasn’t changed at all I believe. I thought that was so funny when you said you are growing old before our ears-haha! Very funny! Have a nice day.

    I am a 46 soon to be 47 year old Panhead. I absloutely love the music of SKILLET. Will see them for the 7th time in 3 years at Uprise September 18th. SKILLET haxs a tremendous passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ and this comes through loud and clear. I purchased Awake the day it was released and if a CD could be worn out I might be purchasing a second. SKILLET is the most played on my IPod for sure.

    a couple of months ago I heard a song on wjtl that I really liked but I can’t remember it,
    can you help me out? all I can remember are the words: “come lord were thirsty now come lord
    and rain it down. I think it might be called rain down I’m not shure.
    and by the way the song awake and alive by Skillet is my favorite song
