RADIO JOBS NOSE DIVE If you are presently on the air at a radio station you a member of an increasingly exclusive club. RadioWorld cites recent data on employment trends show job shrinkage in the industry over the past quarter century. The Telcom Law of 1996 causes considerable consolidation which means fewer jobs. From 1990 through early this year, the number of radio broadcasting jobs drop about 27 percent. There are 118,700 radio broadcasting jobs in 1990 compared to 86,800 through March 2016.
NEW RADIO CRISIS AHEAD Along with the current generation of engineers who move ever-closer to retirement, at this year’s NAB, the coming crisis in broadcasting is the lack of qualified people interested in getting into broadcast engineering. Without someone who knows the current broadcast technology and equipment and how to install, configure, maintain, and repair it, can your broadcast facility and operation stay on the air for very long? No one seems to appear to replace the retiring engineers.

CHARLOTTE MARIE MIEARS (Houston, TX) Jim Gough Sr., aka “Mr. Texas” Passed Away Today! My heart is saddened tonight because today I lost a dear old friend…Jim Gough Sr. AKA “Mr. Texas”…many of you knew his face and his voice from the many TV commercials he did over the years…Jim was also an actor and appeared in many movies…”Urban Cowboy”…”Places in the heart”…and “JFK” to name just a few…as well as TV shows such as Dallas and Walker Texas Ranger. Jim was also a singer and a musician and was one of the most multi-talented people I’ve ever known…and as uncanny as this may seem…it was exactly “17” years ago today…June 7, 1999 that Jim Gough gave my husbands eulogy at his military memorial…they both grew up together and were the very best of friends and there was no one that I would rather have do the eulogy than Jim Gough and I have to say that he did an absolutely beautiful heartfelt eulogy…and NOW… the two of them are together once again. I’m gonna miss you Jim Gough…thank you for being my friend…until we meet again…”Happy Trails to you”.

Well our winter is now going well in New Zealand, only thing is we seem to be having Spring days .. not quiet the temps you would hope for if there was an outdoor concert to go to…but certainly warm for this time of the year.
Ski season started this weekend and the fields are flat out making snow. Which means there will some great after snow activities when the young ones come down off the slops, no not what you are thinking. I mean singing and dancing and generally having a good time. At these events you can be sure from out of the wood work will come some wonderful voices not only pop but also the odd wonderful Country voice. It just seems to happen in the most unexpected places.
I just hope there is someone there who will give that young person the encouragement to go the next step, join a club or what ever but to just get out and give your self a chance. I know its a very competitive world BUT and there is always a BUT, you wont know if you don’t back yourself and give this amazing world of music a try. To all the ones who see these young ones singing, give them your encouragement it may be just the little push they need .. take care.

Jesus said when the Holy Spirit came He would convict us of sin, but conviction is not the same as ‘getting caught’. When we get caught doing wrong we feel pain, but it’s not necessarily conviction over sin. Often it’s just embarrassment over how others are thinking about us. If we thought no one would ever know, we wouldn’t be in pain. And conviction isn’t the same thing as fear of punishment. Conviction is when you get a glimpse of what you’re capable of: ‘How did I become the kind of person who can lie, cheat on a test, have an affair, claim credit for what I didn’t do, act in a cowardly way instead of courageously, or use people for my own ends?’ These aren’t questions you’d normally ask yourself. The Bible says, ‘This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light…’ (John 3:19).
When God is at work in your life, the pain isn’t about other people knowing, or even about the consequences. That’s all external. The pain of conviction is internal—it’s over who you are. Unless your car windshield is clean, you run the risk of ending up in a ditch and you can’t clean it yourself while you’re driving—that’s why you have windshield wipers.
Similarly, the Holy Spirit’s job is to reveal sin, let you repent of it, and cleanse you so that you can go where God wants to take you in life. Each day you need to pray, ‘Lord, send as much light as I can stand. Clean off my windshield so I can see more clearly. Cleanse me.’
Prayer Heavenly Father,
Help me to be honest and confess my sins, all of them, to You so that I can change and be clean again
Thank You for Your grace and forgiveness which makes all things new again! In Jesus’ Name, Amen
