1. How did the concept of Total Axxess Live come
It was actually a dream of Doug Hannah and John
Frost and Faron Dice as a way to grow the CHRSN and
line up with the mission of reaching 20 million
listeners by 2007.
2. How do you prep for the show on a daily
I live my life...believe me that's all the prep I
need. No, obviously I prepare for artists interviews
both with real questions that will inform as well as
Cliff's loaded questions which are just a lot of fun.
3. Take us behind the scenes ... who answers
the incoming phone calls, picks the music, etc?
Doug has done a great job empowering me to get the
job done however it takes. I have a producer who
handles all the production stuff, but I pretty much
run the entire show on the air.
4. Why do you think Christian radio is ready
for a show like Total Axxess Live?
It's time to stop doing business as usual!
Christianity is not about dogma and duties! It's about
living your life in a way that reflects Jesus Christ.
This show has been designed as an encouraging place
where Christians can have a blast while opening up the
door to those far from God who are looking for a big
dose of hope! I pray this show will be that
springboard for them.

visit their market...will that be possible?
We are working on that now...the Total Axxess Road

help to the show so far?
They have been very responsive. I believe they
recognize this is more than just getting an artist on
a show, but to expose the artist and the music to a
7. In your opinion what are the biggest
obstacles facing Christian radio today?
Ourselves! Isn't interesting how we see our
limitations while God sees our potential. With God all
is possible...we gotta live that way!
8. What do you believe is the primary role of
the Christian radio air personality today?
To encourage and uplift. I believe it is my role to
be the first step for someone who is seeking God and
to encourage that person on their journey!
9. What (if any) other Christian radio
stations do you consider as innovators today?
10. Where do you see Christian radio in 5
The potential is limitless! With the crossover
success of many Christian Artists into the mainstream
simply amazing how God is and will be using this
medium to spread the Gospel in a relevant way. The
time has come! God is tapping us on the shoulder to
get it done! Radio will be a huge tool in His arsenal!
