ReZurrection Radio General Manager Ron Diaz tells HisAir ReZurrection Radio’s Playlist Channel “Jesus Revolution Soundtrack and Beyond” hit over 1000 followers in just under 6 months of its launch.

Ron Says, “This makes it the most successful channel in our line up of 30 plus playlists. It was developed and programmed by former Sirius XM curator Thomas Augustus. The channel launch coincided with the films theatrical release. It has rapidly grown since the first 30 days of launch. The station plays many Jesus Music era artists like Lovesong, along with music of the time period. Our goal was to extend an invitation to anyone who may have seen the film, loved the music of the era and were interested in Jesus Music introduced by the film. This playlist success has been by word of mouth as we haven’t marketed it at all. We are happy to share part of the early beginnings of Christian Music through this playlist “,

WCVO/Columbus (The River) ended their Fall Sharathon with a miracle finish to meet the funding need. After a frantic final afternoon, a donor called at the end of the event and asked, “How much is left?” and generously gave that amount to meet the goal, a 14% increase over last year.

“We are praising God for the generosity of our River Family! This has been a challenging year financially for so many, and yet, River listeners went up and over our largest Fall Sharathon goal in the last few years,” said River COO Dave Stephens.

“I’m so thankful to the River Team, Volunteers and team at Vidare Creative who worked so hard to make this event go well, and ultimately to God and our listeners who provided the resources to keep sharing hope throughout Central Ohio and beyond.”

The FNDRSNG August Webinar “Drive Prep: Spiritual Bootcamp” is available online & on demand. The discussion focused around the actions to make fundraising both an act of doing our part and praying for God to do his, and clearly understanding the difference.

Prayer List:
From:Tracy Figley Strong Tower Christian Media: Last evening KJ, a young man on the tower crew working on our tower at the station in Kentucky, fell from 130’ and landed on his side! He was only knocked out a few seconds. It is miraculous he survived the fall. He’s not out of the woods. He was care flighted to a hospital in Huntington West Virginia. He has broken vertebrae, ribs, pelvis and is in surgery to relieve swelling in the brain.
