Beyond the Song: Scott Peek of KNMG

Written by Staff on March 31, 2020 – 2:21 pm -

Beyond the Song. Scott Peek. Jantina BaksteenBeyond the Song with Scott Peek by Jantina Baksteen

For this edition of Beyond the Song, Jantina Baksteen reached out to Scott Peek who is the owner, manager and host of KNMG radio, a station she has listened to for almost six years.

KNMG will celebrate it’s 8th Annivesary this year.

Thanks Scott, for taking time out of your busy life to join this interview.

Jantina Baksteen: Can you introduce yourself?

Scott Peek: I’m the owner and morning on-air personality at KNMG. I have three amazing children, and I’m looking forward to getting married in June, Lord willing.

JB: Can you share about the birth of KNMG radio station?

SP: After three-and-a-half years of running a concert series, I was noticing a need growing for more music on a consistent basis. While standing on stage during intermission, I asked the audience if they would enjoy a station in our area playing this music full time. People I had never met, walked up to me and handed me cash, and said, “Get started.” Six months later, KNMG was live. It will be eight years, come August.

JB: How did you become a radio DJ? Was it a desire from early age?

SP: I’ve loved gospel music all my life, but had no idea or intention to end up in the gospel music industry. That’s a God thing. I spent the first 20 plus years of my professional life in the paint industry. A health issue forced me out of the profession, and led me on a path that culminated in where I am now, including time as a weekly contributor on both a local TV station, and a national radio program.

JB: Where are you located and what exactly is needed to start an internet radio? 

SP: We are based in the midwest, near Kansas City. As far as starting a station, you need a multitude of things, including good people to support you.

JB: What do the call letters KNMG stand for?

SP: The letters represent Northwest Missouri Gospel.

JB: How far does your broadcast reach?

SP: Since we are an internet-based station, we have been heard globally in over 70 foreign countries and of course, all 50 states here in the U.S.

JB: Besides being a radio DJ playing 24/7, you have an morning show every work day. Please share your mission on this daily work?

SP: We do have a morning show and I’m blessed to be the host. We try very hard to keep everything positive, sharing the saving message of Christ to the non-believe, while encouraging the believers. We all have our struggles, and gospel music is an amazing bridge to reach all types of people.

Beyond the Song, Scott Peek. Jantina Baksteen

Scott Peek and family

JB: Do you have a testimony to share?

SP: My entire life is a testimony. I’ve been on mountain tops and I’ve been in the deepest of valleys. I’ve failed him so many times, and yet he restores me every time with his grace. I’m living proof that if you think you’ve done too much, wandered too far away, you’ll never out run his love. Now I have this station, three beautiful kids, an amazing fiancé, and looking forward to what he has in store for all of us. God is good.

JB: What is on top of your bucket list?

SP: I want to visit Jerusalem.

JB: What group would you have liked to interview that is no longer around?

SP: If I could interview one group, it would be the Cathedrals. Glen Payne and George Younce are two of my heroes.

JB: Who is your greatest influence  for doing this work?

SP: My mom has been my greatest influence in everything I have done. She has always been my biggest fan,  biggest supporter, and best friend.

JB: Can you recall a song that touched you in your early years and hooked you on Southern gospel music?

SP: There were so many growing up. Bill Gaither was big in our house, I just didn’t realize who he was. But if I had to pick one, I would have to say the Cathedrals, Step Into The Water.

Beyond the Song. Scott Peek. Jantina BaksteenJB: Something catastrophic happened to your station last year. Can you tell us about it?

SP: Last year, May 28th to be exact, we were devastated by a flood. I had awakened early that morning, and as I walked into the studio, I was standing in eight inches of water throughout the studio. But again, God is good and friends and artists came together, and here we are …….

JB: What’s ahead for KNMG radio in the near future? 

SP: I’d love to tell you what is on the horizon, but I’m going to be a little secretive here. But I promise it’s going to be good. Stay tuned.

JB: How can our readers listen to KNMG?

SP: The easiest way to find KNMG is to download our free app “KNMG,” and be sure to allow notifications, so we can keep you updated on upcoming events. You can also listen online at  www.KNMGRadio.com

 

 

Thanks so much Scott for sharing your work to preach the word through song on this fine station. What you said with your own words, KNMG is: “A station that God took over a long time ago,” to reach the world.

Christmas Wacky Wednesday from SGNScoops

Written by Staff on December 12, 2018 – 11:05 am -

Wacky Wednesday titleIt’s Christmastime here on SGNScoops and we have a brand new Christmas edition of Wacky Wednesday just for you. This time, our question was: What is your favorite Christmas song and why? Let’s shake our Gospel music snowglobe and see what answers the artists have for us.

Thanks again to our special Social Media girl, Jantina de Haan, for securing these responses for us. We hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas!

 

Christmas 2017Mark Byrd: “Mary Did You Know.” I love the way this song has such a sweet flow but tells a story of a mighty King and Savior.

 

Eric Bennett: “Hope Has Hands” © Phill Cross; I love the way he describes baby Jesus. Hope has Hands, Freedom has Feet; Truth will stand, The Word will speak. The Holy and Lovely will finally embrace. For Love has a Heartbeat and Grace has a Face…”

Triumphant Christmas

Adam Crabb: “O Holy Night,” because it talks about the birth of our Savior and to me, this song is the true spirit of Christmas.

Kingdom Heirs ChristmasJaquita Lindsey: “Do You Hear What I Hear.” I remember trying to learn it on the piano, which I never learned to play the piano 🙂 I don’t have a particular reason for liking it. Just because.

Greg Sullivan: “There’s a New Kid In Town.” I like this song because not many people in Bethlehem knew that Jesus had been born and it focuses on how God became man in form of a child. This child would be the Savior of the world.

Randa Jordan: “White Christmas.” I loved the movie as a little girl, loved Bing Crosby, and it stayed with me all these years. It brings to me the happiest of memories.

Arthur Rice: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas.” The song came out in 1943 during WW2 and it was written from a soldier’s perspective of wanting to be home

Gaither Christmas Homecoming 2016

Gaither Homecoming

with their families for Christmas, even though the last line reveals it wouldn’t be a reality.
The song always reminds me of the reality that so many of our men and women won’t be home for Christmas. And how appreciative we should be for the sacrifice of them and their families, and we pray for their safe and speedy

return home.

Mark Bishop: Wow.. that’s a tough one. It’s hard to narrow it down to one song. For the simplicity of the beautiful message and the melody, it’s hard to beat “Silent Night.” It exemplifies what we should be focusing on at Christmas time, over shopping and gifts. It always makes me a little melancholy, too. Likewise, with Jubilee Christmas 2018. Greater Vision and Legacy Five“Oh Holy Night.” My sleeper choice would have to be “The Little Drummer Boy.” I love the story that it tells and that we don’t need to bring great gifts to Jesus like the three wise men, we only need to give Him the talents that He gave us. But the greatest Christmas gift of all is to give back to God what He gave us, to begin with.

Matt Fouch: I have a funny one…’You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” I love the original cut on this song and it fits the bass range just perfectly. People always smile when they hear you sing it, It’s a lot of fun.

Southern Gospel Sweetheart Autumn Nelon Clark

Autumn Clark of the Nelons

Autumn Clark: “The Christmas song.” Because it is so beautiful and the story it tells.

Scott Peek (DJ of KNMG Radio): “We Are The Reason.” The message can be no clearer. He came to earth as a baby for us. All 33 years of His life were about us His willingness to die on the cross was about us. And it all started that first Christmas morning…”WE ARE THE REASON!”

Harley Madden: “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” I think maybe my favorite song for Christmas. And the reason I say that is, back in 1985 my sister passed, and I miss her everyday. But now I think about it, she made my mom a promise for Christmas that year. And that was: She would be home for Christmas. Even though we may not have got our wish for her to be at her earthly home for Christmas, she was made new in her Heavenly home. Sitting at the feet of Jesus. I can’t wait to get to Heaven, to be able to see her again and give her a big hug.

Merry Christmas from SGNScoops
