The Wildhorse Top 20 Request Chart has come about due to the enormous demand by listeners and artists who wanted to know if their songs and favorites could be included on our Charts. As you all know the IDSS Country Download chart only features songs by artists that are available as free downloads on Wildhorse Entertainment. Therefore we could and would not add any requested songs that are not free downloads to that Top 30 countdown. So that is how this TOP 20 was born or as some would say created.
On our front page of WHISNews21 you will find a place to request your songs for the request Top20. Every single song on this Top20 was requested many times during the month of March 2015 by you the readers and visitors of WHISNews21.
If your song was not featured here this month you need to get all your fans friends and family to visit this page and start requesting your favorite song for this special Wildhorse Chart Show. Even though many took advantage of this special opportunity many have not. So the old saying of ‘You Snooze You Loose” is very obvious on this Top 20.
If your fans friends or family voted for your song or any other artists country song it would have been featured, the ball is in your court don’t loose this opportunity to be featured on this special one of a kind chart.
Some artists, promoters and most music people quite correctly say Charts are a dime a dozen, and they are so very right. However even if charts are a dime a dozen the only chart that is important to you would be the one you are featured on. Here is your chance every vote counts here, so if you don’t play you wont win.
Well April 2015 chart is here and we hope that you all enjoy reading it and receiving it, please be aware that it is more work for us but as long as the requests come through we will keep this chart alive for y’all – Wildhorse Entertainment Home of the Independent Superstars. You can download a high quality copy by going to http://www.wildhorse.co.za Once there then right-click on the banner and save as.

LIVE TV CAPTURES DESTRUCTIVE TWISTER Tribune KFOR TV NBC CH 4 Chief Meteorologist Mike Morgan along with Chopper 4 pilot Bob Moore describes a gustnado in Moore, OK during Wednesday’s storm that strikes near Oklahoma City. He sees electrical flashes from high winds that toss objects and causes electrical explosions. That is a tornado, folks. That’s a tornado, right there. The storm destroys homes, flips semis on their sides, tears the roof off an elementary school, plus the winds rip KOKC’s radio towers.
TWISTER TWISTS RADIO TOWERS In late 1946, KOMA-1520 power increases to 50,000 watts. In 1958, Todd Storz buys KOMA-1520. It is the third station in OKC to flip to Top-40, behind KOCY and WKY. On September 12, 1980 KOMA Country is born. Here in TX, we listen to the legendary Larry Scott’s all night show. On Saturday, February 1, 2003 KOMA-1520 flips to News Talk. On August 27, 2004 KOMA-1520 becomes KOKC. On Wednesday, March 25, 2015 a tornado topples three of KOKC-1520’s towers and shuts it down.
FT. WORTH, TX RADIO STATION OVERSHOOTS Lake Country Radio KCKL FM (95.9) Malakoff, TX complains to the FCC that KFWR FM The Ranch (95.9) Jacksboro-Fort Worth, TX new facility puts out more power toward KCKL FM’s protected contour with its directional antenna. KCKL FM alleges that KFWR FM’s side-mount antenna causes KFWR FM to send more than double its licensed power in certain directions. The FCC gives KFWR FM until April 22, 2015 to show why its antenna should not be defined as directional.

FRANK HALEY [KDAZ-730 newsman – ex KLIF-1190, KOB-770, KILT, KTRH & KVIL news] (Albuquerque, NM) If you grew up listening to the legendary KOMA radio in Oklahoma City, it will interest you to know that the most recent tornado in OKC has knocked down two of the broadcast towers of that station, now with the call letters KOKC, and snapped a third tower in half, knocking the station off the air at a critical time. 1 dead so far, several injured in Tulsa, and Moore, OK was also hit… Frank

Tonight’s storm 3/26/15 took down two of three and severely damaged the third tower due to possible straight line winds of over 90mph. Sad to see them go… Jay Walker

DON SUNDEEN [former KCOH-1430 OM/PD/DJ-Hi Records promotion-TV ad prod] (Dallas, TX) Subject: Bermuda Radio Archive Network. Jim, thought you’d find this radio ‘small world’ story interesting. Written by Jim Richards, morning man at ZBM 2, the station we tried to compete with in Bermuda in the early 60’s… ZBM 1 and 2 were based on the BBC model and staffed by announcers from Britain’s possessions, Canada, Australia, and other English speaking countries, all well paid and professional. They wouldn’t hire me because I was an American, even for a part-time gig, so I ended up on the native station, ZFB, the only non-Bermudian, and as the newly minted Canadian Donnie Dare. The story Jim tells is true and almost too coincidental. Bermuda Radio Archive Network.
TRIVIA ANSWER: In 1962, Decca records refuses to sign The Beatles to a recording contract. Decca’s reasoning: We don’t like their sound and guitar music is on the way out.

Houston, Texas – Laus Deo
The disciple Peter was a man of great faith and bold action. But as readers of the New Testament know, his brash style sometimes led him to make humiliating mistakes. More than once, this disciple had to wear the label of “miserable failure” rather than that of “obedient servant.”
We can all relate when it comes to falling short of expectations. Obedience to God is a learning process, and failure is a part of our development as humble servants. When we yield to temptation or rebel against God’s authority, we realize that sin has few rewards, and even those are fleeting.
Failure is an excellent learning tool, as Peter could certainly attest. Through trial and error, he discovered that humility is required of believers (John 13:5-14); that God’s ways are higher than the world’s ways (Mark 8:33); and that one should never take his eyes off Jesus (Matt. 14:30). He took each of those lessons to heart and thereby grew stronger in his faith. Isn’t that Romans 8:28 in action? God caused Peter’s failures to be put to good use as training material because the disciple was eager to mature and serve.
God doesn’t reward rebellion or wrongdoing. However, by His grace, He blesses those who choose repentance and embrace chastisement as a tool for growth.
We would probably all prefer to grow in our faith without ever making a mistake before God’s eyes, but we cannot deny that missteps are instructive. Failure teaches believers that it is much wiser and more profitable to be obedient to the Lord.
