4. What is the criteria that determines if a song
receives airplay on your station?
If it's a great song
targeted to our audience we play it. Jesus Take The
Wheel is a great example. Song was never supposed to
be released to Christian Radio but when I heard it on
iTunes I bought it and it was on the air the next day.
Great songs will always get played.
5. What kind of
promotions work best for your station?
Promotions that serve
are always the best. If we work at "serving" without
self promotion we always get better press for it. The
Concert for Katrina we did is a great example of that.
6. How do you
think Christian Record labels can better serve
Keep sending the great
songs... we have enough good ones.
7. In your
opinion what are the biggest obstacles facing
Christian radio today?
Budget. It's sometimes
hard to compete with stations that bill over 50
million. That's not an excuse but a reality we have to
8. What do you
believe is the primary role of the Christian radio air
To connect with the
target and communicate God's love. That's why we do
what we do.
9. What (if any)
other Christian radio stations do you consider as
I have a lot of
respect for Dean O'Neal and WPOZ in Orlando. I also
admire the work Kevin Avery and The Fish Atlanta are
10. Where do you
see Christian radio in 5 years?
Hopefully returning to
the basics... serving God by serving our listeners and
our community. If we do that I think we'll continue
the growth track our format has been on for the past
