good news Verse for today
For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they think they have will be taken from them." -- Luke 8:17-18

KJOL Listener Survey

It's been several years since our last survey of the tastes of our listeners; and we would love to know what you think! Some listeners will get a paper copy in the mail, but you can take it now online. Don't forget to pass it on to a friend...even one that doesn't listen to KJOL! Here's our2018 Listener Survey.

From The Manager’s Desk

David AndrewsDon’t you just love talking about it??  The word “Budget” can strike fear in the heart of a momma grizzly bear.  Alas, it’s a fact of life when it comes to money management; and KJOL also has to track our finances against projections.  While this is not something we enjoy talking about on the air, or even in an E-Newsletter, we are a little concerned. 

We have had some big expenses this year, such as our required systems upgrade, which still remains to be fully covered, some technological repairs, and of course those every-day bills radio stations see in large quantities.  Pair that with tough months in April, May, and June and cash flow is a bit sparse.  

OK, enough of the bad news. 

Here’s the good news.  The “doctor” says it is all reversible. 

Listener support is our bread and butter here at KJOL; and if our listeners rally together, both through prayer and financial support, we can reverse course, and strengthen the financial stability of this vital ministry to the Western Slope. 

If you have never supported KJOL before, it’s easy!www.kjol.org is a great place to start.  You can make an online donation right there via credit/debit card. And if you would like to make it recurring monthly, after you make your first donation, email ken@kjol.org and he will set that up for you.  A number of listeners use their bank’s Bill Pay feature; and a handwritten check in the mail is probably the most popular method still. 

Don't forget that your gifts are tax deductible...and also much appreciated! Here’s our address:  KJOL,1354 E. Sherwood Dr., Grand Junction, CO 81503. 

Kurt's Music News

KurtThe Doxology by Anthem Lights and Selah
Selah has lent their voices to a popular a capella rendtion of The Doxology featuring the group Anthem Lights.  You can watch them perform the song on Youtube.
Anthem Lights is a group of four men from Liberty University who enjoy crafting mostly a capella versions of popular hymns and worship songs.  They have recorded two Hymns albums.
Lauren Daigle’s new album sets records

Billboard Magazine reports that the new album Look Up Child by Lauren Daigle sold 115,000 "units" during the first week.  That includes 103,000 actual albums (as opposed to downloads and streams). 
This was the biggest sales week for a Christian female artist in 20 years.  It also set a record for the biggest Chrsitian music album of 2018, and the most traditional album sales for any Christian album in nine years.

Here Be Lions

Integrity Music recently signed a new group called Here Be Lions featuring lead singer Dustin Smith.  The group is a collective of Nashville-area worship leaders.  The name comes from the ancient mapping tradition of marking unknown territory with the phrase “Here Be Lions.”  According to the band, “Originally meant as a warning, the phrase has become a call for the Here Be Lions team to advance God’s kingdom and authority.”
Their current song is "Only a Holy God.”  Dustin Smith has written several other popular worship songs including "The One That Really Matters" by Michael W. Smith.
