    Awww, that would be PERFECT for my dad. He’s really been wanting to go golfing for a long time now.

    Yes! Multiple people may submit entries, but each person may only send in one entry. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    My song is Steven Curtis Chapman’s “Cinderella” (as I’m sure a dozen others’ have chosen) but it’s such a beautiful depiction of my relationship with my dad (and how I hope my girls will feel about my husband when they get older 🙂 )

    Okay so only one person per entry. I can’t have one entry for me an my two sisters. Is that right?

    Hello Chy Chy! Actually, it’s one entry per person. If you would each like to send in your own entry, that’s fine. However, if you would like to only have one entry and have the song be from all 3 of you, that’s also fine! I hope that helps!

    I sent in my entry, and maybe I missed it or you didn’t get it, but I haven’t heard my song request. It was If We Are the Body by Casting crowns.

    Hi Rachel! We got hundreds of entries; so, it won’t be possible to play every single one on the radio! We’re playing them a few times an hour and will play a whole bunch of them from 5 – 6 p.m. and announce the winner at 5:30 p.m.
