Vonda Armstrong shines DJ Spotlight on Paula Probus

Written by Staff on July 12, 2019 – 10:40 am -

Vonda Armstrong DU Spotlight Paula ProbusWJCR 90.1 FM in Upton, Kent., was founded by the vision and sacrifice of Rev. Don Powell, Sr. and his wife Gerri. The station went on the air in February 1990. WJCR 90.1 FM is Kentucky’s only 100,000 watt Christian radio station. It reaches 32 counties throughout central Kentucky, and parts of four other states. WJCR is where we find our DJ Spotlight for this month, as it shines on Paula Probus. Take a look at the following conversation with this sweet lady from Upton, Kent.




Vonda Armstrong:  Paula, how and when did you get your first job in radio? What is your current job at WJCR?
Paula Probus: I got my first job in radio at WJCR 90.1FM in Upton, Ky. Back in 2003, the station needed volunteers to handle the phones. So, I volunteered one day a week. Don Powell Jr. and his wife Lauree Powell were running the station and they asked me to DJ a 3-hour program in the afternoon twice a week, and that started my love for radio.  I am currently working fulltime as the Music Director and afternoon DJ and I love it.  

Paula ProbusArmstrong:  We understand your grandson is famous! Tell us all about Jake.
Probus: Yes, my oldest grandson is popular. His name is Jake Boone Logsdon, and it all started when my daughter videoed him helping her with her grocery list. He won America’s Funniest Home Videos and he now has his own YouTube channel, Life according to Jake Boone. Jake is four years old; he loves feeding cows, hauling stuff on his flatbed truck and going fishing. He is just a little red-headed country boy.

Armstrong: If you could interview anyone, who would it be? Why would you choose them?
Probus: I would love to interview Gloria Gaither. Gloria is a wonderful writer, and I am sure she has some interesting stories to tell on Bill. I know she is filled with wisdom about the Southern gospel music industry, while she has watched it evolve throughout the years. Gloria also seems to be a humble woman of God.

 

Armstrong: Tell us about something cool you have been able to do because of your position in radio.
Probus: One of my all-time favorite experiences as a music director for WJCR, was my recent visit to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tenn. My husband Tim and I walked the red carpet at the ICM awards. The experience was so fun. Being on radio has given me many great experiences, it is the best job ever.

Vonda Armstrong shines DJ Spotlight on Paula ProbusArmstrong: Would you share your testimony with us?
Probus: I am the oldest child of a General Baptist minister. My brother and husband are also preachers. God put me in a family who believes in the power of Jesus Christ. I was saved and baptized when I was nine years old. However, I was taught to sing with my mother and aunt when I was only seven years old. I have not always walked close with Jesus, but he has never left me and is always my refuge and strength. “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.“ Psalm 46:1.

Registered “Radio 101” Class To Be Offered at Creekside

Written by scoopsnews on May 10, 2019 – 4:35 pm -

How can I get my song on the radio?

This is an indirect question — it sounds like an easy question , and on the surface, there is a straightforward answer.

To get your song played on the radio, either you or your Radio Promotion Company approaches program directors/music directors at radio stations, promotes your song to them using a combination of phone calls and faxes, press releases, and emails. Then the stations that are interested in the song will play it and the ones that aren’t won’t. Sounds pretty easy, right?

The truth is that radio promotion is anything but easy.

Tiffany Noecker from Daywind, Vonda Armstrong from Hey Y’all Media, and Richard Hyssong from Premier Promotions will be teaching “Radio 101”  for groups that have a song at radio or are considering Radio Promotion in the future.

This class will be available at Creekside Gospel Music Convention 2019 on Monday, October 28th at 2:00 pm at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center In the main hall.

Fee: $25 per person

Let’s Give Flowers🌹🌸🌼🌻🌺🌷💐

Written by scoopsnews on April 18, 2019 – 10:12 am -

Have you heard the expression “Give them their flowers while they are still alive”? Often times, when a person dies, we call up a florist and send over flowers. What if you took the time to do that for a person while they live?

Is there someone that has been there for you in a dark hour? Perhaps someone prayed for you or did a kind gesture that you’d like to recognize? Maybe there are several people and not just one.

Do it here. Post their picture, tell us why….Let’s give Flowers! Don’t forget to tag your person or people. Let’s add some positivity to Facebook today! 

Here’s a famous quote about gratitude:

Words to live by…

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

– John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thursday from SGN Scoops!

Special Edition of “Strictly Southern With Vonda Armstrong” – With Guests , The Hyssongs… Tune in Wednesday 4-10-19

Written by scoopsnews on April 9, 2019 – 7:08 pm -

Join Vonda Armstrong tomorrow, April 10th from 12:00 Noon- 1:oo Pm (CST) for a “special Interview” with The Hyssongs.

The Hyssongs current radio single, “Choose Life” is making a strong statement at radio stations nationwide.

The Hyssongs

The Hyssongs

“Choose Life has three verses that each speak to current events,” Hyssong explains. “The first verse deals with the hot topic of abortion. More recently it is being suggested that a mother can have a child, and after the baby is born the mother and doctor will discuss whether to keep the child or not. This is not a cultural or political issue, it is a biblical issue. The song strongly states, ‘Choose Life.'”

Richard continues, “The second verse deals with the subject of suicide. All of us probably have known people who have contemplated or have even take their own lives. Many are hopeless, yet we know the One who gives us hope. Again, we ‘Choose Life.'”

“The third verse is about accepting or rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. We again, ‘Choose Life’ and accept Christ,” concludes Richard.

This song is of extreme personal importance to the Hyssongs. Richard tells us why the song is such an extension of their lives.

“Our daughter was born over ten years ago. She was born with twenty-two tumors in and around her heart. She also had a massive amount of brain tumors a well. After she was born, the doctor said that she would most likely not survive, and if she did, she would never walk or talk. Many would have suggested that it would have been good to abort her, but we chose life! Today she is perfectly normal,” he exalts.

The group chose this song as their radio single because of its timely message.

You can tune in to the show via Facebook live , listen at 91.7 FM, or stream at www.wpilfm.com.

Exciting Changes For Hope’s Journey

Written by scoopsnews on April 1, 2019 – 2:43 pm -

Ellisville, Mississippi 4/1/2019 …..Fourteen Years ago, Vonda Easley Armstrong and her daughter, Ashley Easley (Franks), began the ministry of Hope’s Journey. The vision for the group was to spread “Hope” to a lost and dying world. In 2006, Ashley met Josh Franks at The National Quartet Convention and, on December 8th, 2007, they were married and began an exciting ministry together as husband and wife. In regards to Hope’s Journey, Vonda states, “We’ve had some amazing opportunities come our way and have been able to share the stage with many fantastic groups and singers through the years.  We’ve also had our fair share of transition, but with those changes, we have experienced some amazing blessings! Today marks a new beginning for Hope’s Journey.  After much prayer, I am excited to announce a change in direction, both in music and ministry. Over the past 5 months, I have been seeking God for direction for the group since my marriage to Jack Armstrong, owner of The Bibletones, and moving to Mississippi in late October. I am excited to announce that Alicia Estis and Jenny Stork, both from Mississippi, will be joining Hope’s Journey in all singing and speaking engagements. I met Alicia about a year ago and from our first conversation, I knew God had big plans for this young lady.  Her desire to minister and her talent in songwriting and singing simply blew me away.  She and her husband, Marty, own and manage Estis Music Group. God has gifted Marty and Alicia in writing the gospel message in song.  We love the old songs and the new, and we plan to give our audiences a taste of both.  God knows what He is doing in every situation, and I am very blessed to have this family on board with Hope’s Journey. Jenny Stork makes her home in Vancleave, Mississippi. She is strong in harmony and singing the high part, but more importantly, she is strong in her love for the Lord. Please help me welcome Alicia and Jenny to Hope’s Journey.”
