Beyond the Song: Meet DJ Marty Smith

Written by Staff on May 22, 2020 – 9:17 am -

Marty Smith. Heavens countryBeyond the Song by Jantina Baksteen

In this edition of Beyond the Song, SGNScoops is pleased to introduce Marty Smith, Christian Country DJ for Heaven’s Country. On-air music, weather online or on the radio, on our phones or iPods, is usually the first place where we hear a new song that touches our heart, emotions, and life. The DJs that present this music fulfill a very important role. Marty Smith takes this role very seriously and uses it as an opportunity for ministry.

Jantina Baksteen: Please give us a short introduction of yourself for those who’ve never heard of you?

Marty Smith: My name is Marty Smith. My wife and I live in Bayfield, Colorado, with our two dogs. Our three daughters are grown and on their own and live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I’m a  morning host on Heaven’s Country. I’ve been a disc jockey for about thirty years now. I started radio in 1990, at a small AM station in Kansas City, Missouri (AM 1090 KEXS). Our format was Southern Gospel. I’ve worked other formats including Christian Country, Soft Rock, Mainstream Country, Contemporary Christian music and Inspirational Music. I love getting on the air everyday. It’s so much fun! I broadcast from my radio station in Bayfield, Colorado. We’re a local station with a global impact.

JB: You broadcast for Heaven’s Country, an online radio station. Are you the owner?

MS: Yes, I am the owner and morning host of Heaven’s Country. Bev McCann is our afternoon drive time host (“Your Drive Home with Bev”), and Les Roberts is our evening host (“Evenings with Les Roberts”).

JB: How and when did this radio station start?

MS: Heaven’s Country first went on the air on April 1, 2011. I spent two years putting it all together before I went on the air. I wanted to make sure it had that professional sound I was looking for. My goal was to present a Christian Country radio station to the world that would compete with mainstream country radio. Looking at our listening numbers, we have more listeners than a lot of mainstream country stations.  We pride ourselves on our professionalism. I wanted to have a fun radio station that people would enjoy and look forward to tuning in to. Millions of people tune in to Heaven’s Country.

Marty Smith and his two favourite co-hosts

JB: What is your mission?

MS: To reach the lost with the good news of Jesus Christ through Christian Country music. My mission is to get this music to as many people as I possibly can. I can’t physically travel the world to share the gospel, but my voice does. It’s pretty humbling.

 

JB: What kinds of music do you broadcast?

MS: Christian Country music. However on my morning show, I might play some Southern gospel and Christian Contemporary as well. My listeners love it. They have a wide range of musical tastes.

 

JB: What’s your history in radio?

MS: I started my radio career in 1990. People kept telling me they loved my voice. I tried for years to get into radio but Program Directors kept telling me I was too old at the time. I walked into AM 1090 KEXS and they asked if I had any experience. I told them I did not and they slammed the door in my face. I went in and filled out an application anyway. On my way home, I prayed, “Lord, I give up. If this is what you want, then you do it. I’m going to leave this in your hands.” Five days later they called me up for an interview. They were concerned that I didn’t have any on air experience. So I told them, “You need help and I need the experience so I tell you what, I’ll work free for thirty days and if you don’t like what you hear, let me go.” The owner at the time (Gary Babb) gave me a chance, and here I am, thirty years later. If it wasn’t for him, I never would have gotten into radio.

 

JB: Do you sing?

MS: Only in the car or in the shower. My dogs run when I sing, tails between their legs, whining as they run out of the room!  It’s not pretty.

 

JB: When you mute your mic and step out of the studio, what keeps you busy?

MS: Step out of the studio? What?  Just kidding. I work a full time job running a lab and x-ray department at the Southern Ute Indian Health Center. My full time job funds my radio station.

 

JB: Do you have a music hero?

MS: Mid South and White River. Those two groups helped define and put Christian Country music out there for the world to hear and enjoy. I’m also a big George Strait and Alabama fan. Their gospel songs are amazing.

 

Marty Smith. Heavens countryJB: What message do you want to share the world in this crisis we live in with the Corona pandemic?

MS: Hope. God’s got this. I know it’s scary right now and there are a lot of unknowns to us, but God is not surprised by this. We’re gonna get through this. I believe when we do, we’ll see ourselves closer to God and hopefully we won’t take too many things for granted anymore. Oh, and remember to wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough and be sure you are social distancing.

 

JB: How can listeners tune in?

MS: Just go to www.heavenscountry.com and click the player at the top of the home page. You can also download our Heaven’s Country Radio App there on the home page.

JB: You also do a Facebook live show. Share with us something about that.

MS: I broadcast my show not only on Facebook, but on my You Tube channel, the WOTG Radio Network, The Heaven’s Country Radio Network, WOTG TV West and Heaven’s Country TV and ROKU. You can find me on Facebook by typing in, “Marty Smith Durango.” It will go straight to my page. Be sure to follow me and it will let you know when I’m on the air. During this Coronavirus pandemic, I’m on twice a day, 6 AM and 2 PM LIVE (Mountain Time) on Facebook. It’s a chance for my listeners and I to get together, stay inside and practice Social Distancing. I also host a Christian Country Classics show called, “The Triple C on HC,” every Saturday night at 7 PM. All times are MTN Time. You can also subscribe to my YouTube Channel. Just look for, “Mornings with Mar-Tay” and subscribe.

 

JB: What is the reach of your radio show?

MS: Worldwide. I tell people, “We’re a local radio station with a global impact,” because Heaven’s Country has reached every country in the world, but we also impact Bayfield. I’m very humbled by this. It’s amazing that with just the touch of a button, Heaven’s Country is heard worldwide. When I do my live Facebook and You Tube show, I have about twelve to fifteen countries that tune in every morning. On average, we have fifty to sixty countries tuning in everyday.

 

Be sure to listen in to Heaven’s Country every morning with Marty Smith to hear some great music and meet a great community of listeners. Marty Smith will encourage you and leave you laughing. As Marty would say, “Take it from the Top!”

JesusEvent.com

LANCASTER, Pa. – An estimated three million people watched the first-ever TV broadcast of a Sight & Sound Theatres stage production on Easter weekend as JESUS debuted on TBN. Viewership included both traditional broadcast and digital streaming. Demand has prompted an encore broadcast on TBN on May 13, leading up to the wide release of JESUS on DVD and digital download on May 15.

“We’re thrilled to share this special encore television broadcast of JESUS on TBN,” said Sight & Sound Chief Creative Officer Josh Enck. “You may not be able to attend a theatrical event or worship services just yet, but audiences can still witness the greatest rescue story ever told as it comes to life on screen.”

Sight & Sound. JesusSynopsis
From the bustling streets of Jerusalem to the raging Sea of Galilee, JESUS is the musical adventure that has been seen by more than one million people on stage.

Filmed in front of a live audience, Sight & Sound’s spectacular original production is now coming to television and streaming devices everywhere. Witness some of the most awe-inspiring, miraculous events as Jesus sets sail with fishermen, challenges the Pharisees and heals the hurting.

Where to watch JESUS:*

Wednesday, May 13: 9 pm ET/6 pm PT exclusively on the TBN channel or watch live online through the TBN website/app. Visit jesusevent.com for more information.

*Check your local listings for broadcast times in your area.

The premiere television broadcast and digital event followed other Sight & Sound productions that made the journey from stage to movie screens, including NOAH in 2019, MOSES in 2018 and JONAH in 2017.

JESUS on DVD and digital download will be available to purchase from Sight & Sound at Sight-Sound.com, or from major platforms such as AppleTV and Amazon.

About Sight & Sound Theatres
Sight & Sound Theatres began more than 40 years ago in rural Pennsylvania, where a dairy farmer went from producing milk to producing live entertainment with a purpose. Today that vision has expanded to two state-of-the art theaters in Lancaster, PA, and Branson, MO, where stories from the Bible come to life on stage. Each production features Sight & Sound’s signature massive sets, special effects and live animals. Still family-owned, Sight & Sound’s 675 staff members write, produce, design and build the original shows, drawing nearly 1.5 million audience members from around the world each year.

SGNScoops shines DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER 

Written by Staff on January 20, 2020 – 2:50 pm -

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER 

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER

By Vonda Armstrong

WMER AM 1390 and FM 91.3 is a radio station broadcasting from Meridian, Mississippi. The station airs gospel music, weather, news and community programs. In Meridian, you will love the sights and sounds of the city from the country music history and railroad heritage, to musical performances and outdoor activities. But, in the afternoon from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., the town of Meridian is tuned in to Jason Dyess and his gospel program. This month we are shining the DJ Spotlight on Jason. Join me as we get to know Jason and his ministry better. 

 

Vonda Armstrong: At what age did you know that you would like to work in radio? Please give us your current radio position and station information. 

Jason Dyess: That’s tough to nail an exact age. I’ve always loved music of all types. I can remember making mix tapes from old cassettes and radio. I’ve always dreamed of doing talk radio from current events to sports talk radio. It took me losing my job last year to finally get my chance with a Southern gospel radio station with music I was raised on. I now manage WMER 93.1FM/1390AM which is a Southern gospel music radio station in Meridian, Miss. I also have a talk show once a week entitled “Good News Meridian,” where I bring in government leaders, civic leaders, pastors and other guests, so we can spotlight positive things going on in the city and area we cover. It seems people are tired of hearing negative news, and this is an opportunity for listeners to hear some positive news to go along with our good news gospel music. 

 

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER Vonda: If you could interview any person alive, who would that be and why? 

Jason: When I first read this question, three people came to mind. Pastor Jentezen Franklin, John Maxwell and President George W. Bush, because they all have so much information that I love learning from. I love to listen to Pastor Franklin; he’s an awesome pastor and I admire him. Being an ordained minister myself, I have so many questions. 

Then there’s John Maxwell, with all of his leadership and management advice he gives. I learn so much from him and I think it’s because of his past pastoral background. Thirdly, President George W. Bush because of the way he led this nation while still being a family man. I even gained more respect watching the way he led his family in grieving with the passing of his father in the public eye last year. I really cannot narrow this down to one. 

 

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER Vonda: Please share your testimony. 

Jason: At a young age, my mawmaw Jet and my parents always said I was going to be a preacher or politician. For a while as an adult, I ran from God’s calling on my life. In July 2002, the Lord really grabbed a hold of my life. In April 2006, I finally surrounded to the Lord’s calling in my life, and began the process of ministry schooling, becoming an ordained Assemblies of God minister in May 2017. I’ve been hoping to pastor a church. I have been bi-vocational by serving on ministry staff and a regular job in the past. The company I had worked at for 18 years left Meridian last year. We had opportunities to leave this area, but I felt the Lord was not done with me in my hometown. As a family, we felt this was the time to pastor a church. Although those doors didn’t open, the radio station did and now gives me a bigger platform to share God’s word. My heart is to still serve and help people to get to know God on a more personal way. So my prayer now is that the Lord will use and guide me with the plan he has for me, and not what I feel is my own plan. 

 

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER Vonda: Please tell us about your family. 

Jason: My wife, Dawn and I began dating in January of our sophomore year of high school. Everyone in high school said that we were going to get married, and I proudly say I married my high school sweetheart. We’ve been married for almost 22 years. I almost lost my wife and daughter Katelyn during Katelyn’s birth. Now, 16 years later, both Dawn and Katelyn are healthy. Dawn works for Mississippi State – Meridian campus, and Katelyn is 16 years old and is a junior in high school. 

 

DJ Spotlight on Jason Dyess of WMER Vonda: When you are not behind a mic, what do you enjoy doing ? 

Jason: When not behind the mic, I enjoy doing photography. I do freelance sports photography for newspapers, colleges and other media outlets. I also love opportunities to preach and visit other communities when being able to share God’s Word. I also love deer hunting when the season is open. We are all big Mississippi State fans and we have season tickets to football and women’s basketball. When not traveling to Bulldog events, we love traveling to NASCAR races, the Smoky Mountains and Gulf Shores, Alabama. Family is important to me, so any time all of our family can come together is important to me. 

 

Vonda Armstrong

Thank you Jason Dyess for giving us a glimpse into your life of radio and ministry. When you are  in Meridian, tune into WMER AM 1390 and FM 91.3 between 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m., to catch Jason playing great Southern gospel music.

Hug a Disc Jockey Day: Brandon Bearden of SOGR

Written by Staff on January 20, 2020 – 10:18 am -

Brandon Bearden of SOGR

SGNScoops DJ Spotlight on Brandon Bearden of SOGR Radio

By Vonda Armstrong

SOGR Radio is dedicated to bringing the best gospel music in Powell, Tennessee. It was established in 2012 by Brandon Bearden, and since then has grown to become a favorite station with gospel music lovers everywhere. Recently, we spoke with Brandon and here is what he had to say.

 

Vonda Armstrong: Brandon, thank you for taking the time to speak with us. Can you give us the history of SOGR?

Brandon Bearden: Thanks Vonda for the opportunity to do this. SOGR Radio is an internet radio station. I launched it in 2012, when I saw that there were not that many gospel stations for people to listen to. I live out in the country in an area without much signal for an FM Station. I thought an online station would give other people like me a chance to listen to the Word of God and some great gospel music. You can listen to SOGR Radio either online via our website which is www.sogrradio.com, or you can listen on Tune-In, Roku, or our free mobile app. SOGR Radio is located in Powell, Tenn., as part of Kenny Interactive Media, a media company owned by Jay Stuard III and myself. We offer services such as website design, creating apps, and streaming services to name a few. 

 

Armstrong:  Can you please share your testimony with our readers?

Bearden: Many people don’t know this but I grew up in a gospel music ministry. At three months old, I had been traveling on a bus with my mom and the group she sang with out of Maryville, Tennessee. My grandfather was a preacher. I loved watching him preach, especially when the spirit fell. When I was eight years old, we were having a singing one Sunday morning and the spirit was moving. I could feel the Lord tugging at my heart. I went to the altar and got down on my knees, and my grandfather led me to the Lord. And I have served the Lord since that day.

 

Armstrong: At what age did you know you wanted to be a DJ? What happened that caused you to know that?

Bearden: I was 19 years old when I knew I wanted to be a radio DJ. I started the station because I saw the need for it. Since becoming a DJ, I have seen God work in so many ways in my life. 

 

Brandon Bearden of SOGR radio DJ spotlightArmstrong: If you could interview anyone, who would it be? Why would you choose this person?

Bearden: Wow, that is a hard one. I would have loved to have interviewed Howard and Vestal Goodman. I have heard other people that knew them talk about how you could feel God’s presence when talking with Vestal. I sure would have loved that interview!  That would have to be number one on my list.

 

Armstrong: Other than being a DJ, what are some other things you enjoy doing?

Bearden: I love spending time hanging out with my family. We love to sit out by the pool on a hot summer day. Another thing we love to do is visit the mountains in the fall and enjoy the beautiful foliage, God’s beautiful handiwork. But I would have to say that the thing I enjoy most is sitting behind the microphone in the studio and spinning this great music and telling folks folks about what the Lord has done for me.

 

Armstrong: What is your favorite gospel music event that you attend?  Tell us what you do there.

Bearden: My favorite event is the National Quartet Convention (NQC). I love seeing all the people that come from all over the world to hear Southern gospel music. My typical day at NQC is loading in equipment, setting up my booth, and doing live remotes and interviews. I try and keep the folks updated on what’s happening at NQC, but my favorite thing to do is catching up with the artists and finding out what’s going on in their ministry.

 

Vonda Armstrong

Thank you Brandon for sharing with us about SOGR Radio. God bless you.

Victory Television Network where Southern Gospel is Super

Written by Staff on January 16, 2019 – 6:15 am -

Jim Grant of VTN

Jim Grant of VTN

Victory Television Network, based in Arkansas, is a huge supporter of Southern gospel music and reaches more than 1.2 million homes. SGNScoops recently talked to Jim Grant, General Manager and Associate Minister of VTN.

Grant tells us that VTN is a network of three full power Christian TV stations headquartered in Little Rock, AR. The networks cover over 200 communities across Arkansas and into the Memphis area, the boot heel of Missouri and northwest Mississippi via cable, DISH, DIRECTV and over-the-air.

VTN logoSGN: What prompted you to begin airing a block of Southern Gospel (SG) on your network?

Jim Grant: Southern Gospel music is huge in Arkansas. VTN always carried Southern Gospel programs since its launch in 1988. Shortly after I arrived in 1996, we decided to dedicate Saturday nights to Southern gospel music, branding it Super Southern Saturday Nights. The viewer response has been amazing. Typically, 5 of the top 10 Christian TV programs in the Little Rock DMA each week are Southern Gospel programs on VTN.

SGN: Where do you get your content? If artists want their videos to be aired, how do they go about that?

Grant: We work with a variety of SG program producers to hand pick the very best programs available. We are always scouting for new 30-minute SG programs.

Artists can send us a link to any videos they would like us to consider for air.

Also, we love recording live performances in the VTN studios with artists who come through in the area. Same process. We use videos and in-studio performances in musical breaks, in special programming and on our web site and You Tube Channel.

VTN: Southern Gospel Notes logoSGN: Tell us about yourself. Are you married with kids, grandkids? How did you get interested in SG? I see you are also a minister. Where and how does that intersect with your tv duties?

Grant: I’ve been married to my college sweetheart, Cindy, for 44 years. She is our Office Manager. We have two kids and two grandkids that we serially overspend on.

I came to VTN after a wonderful 20 year career as a secular radio station VP/GM.

I was a late-blooming Christian…saved at age 25…I was struck with an immediate passion to share The Good News. While working full time in radio, I became part of a childrens’ evangelistic team for 11 years that produced the internationally syndicated TV show, Kids Like You. I played the character Jailhouse Joe. It was not type casting.

In 1996, I accepted a calling into the ministry at VTN as General Manager/Associate Minister.

As a manager, I work with an amazing staff to do TV, day after day, striving for excellence.

America needs great Christian programming now more than ever before.

As a minister, I am responsible to the Lord for our viewers. I am certainly not their pastor…but VTN is air support for all the local pastors across our coverage area. These great pastors are the boots on the ground.

I have a minister’s heart for our viewers and head up The VTN Prayer Team. We pray for thousands of our viewer’s prayer needs every year.

SGN: Please share your testimony. How did you open your eyes to the reality of Jesus Christ? Has it always been easy?

Grant: As noted, I was a late bloomer. It took six people to lead me to the Lord: my wife; a boss; a VP and co-worker in my broadcast corporation, and two guys in my Army reserve unit.

The Army Reserve guys gave me a copy of Hal Lindsey’s Late Great Planet Earth book. I tossed it in a drawer. Two years later I read it and gave my heart to the Lord. I’ve been on fire ever since.

Jim Grant of VTN

Jim Grant of VTN

SGN: Do you sing yourself? How do you promote your SG block? Please give us any links or addresses that might help people to reach you.

Grant: I sing in the shower and it breaks the tile.

I am a bass guitar hobbyist. The only people who hear me are my wife and the next door neighbors who wish I’d turn the amp down.

We promote our Southern gospel block with tons of on air promos, web site, Facebook, Twitter, etc. VTN is the only Christian TV network with a full time Promotion Director (Andrea Qualls). She is the best…and a real SG fan.

VTN web site is: www.vtntv.com.

Best way to reach us: info@vtntv.com

VTN is a non-profit organization that relies on viewers to keep them on the air.

Jim Brady Trio as seen Through the Lens of Craig Harris

Written by Staff on August 1, 2018 – 7:41 am -

The Jim Brady Trio

The Jim Brady Trio

The Jim Brady Trio performed at Bethel Free Will Baptist Church in Ashland City, Tenn., on July 6. SGNScoops’ photographer and writer, Craig Harris, attended the concert and captured these images.

More About the Jim Brady Trio from their website:

In the summer of 2014, Jim and Melissa felt the time was right to answer a new call and to embark upon a brand new ministry. Thus came the announcement that Jim would be leaving The Booth Brothers to join his wife in forming The Jim Brady Trio.

Jim and Melissa Brady are living proof that God’s ways are higher than ours, and that He is always

working for our good and His glory. “God has brought so many opportunities our way as a result of Jim’s time with The Booth Brothers,” Melissa states. “Had Jim chosen to sing with Ronnie and Michael for the rest of his life, I would have supported him 100 percent, but God had other plans.”

Obviously, those plans include lots of great music and a great future for the Jim Brady Trio.

The Jim Brady Trio currently consists of Jim Brady, his wife Melissa and Layke Jones.
