What’s your most embarrassing song currently in your Playlist?
“Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba. When that song shuffles on in the car the kids have a blast singing “I get knocked down, but I get up again” and have the whole song choreographed. I can neither confirm or deny that there is actual video of that happening.
Who is your favorite storyteller?
Radio geek that I am I remember running Paul Harvey and “The Rest of the Story” for many years back on WKST, New Castle, PA. One time (when I was new) I somehow forgot to play it at its scheduled time and the phones went crazy with people demanding that it be played. I wondered what all the fuss was about until I actually listened to him. I was hooked. He was a master storyteller.
Most amazing encounter with someone in need?
The most recent was a village elder in the bush of South Sudan. I was there to gather stories for a campaign and when I asked him about the need in his village he said “You want to know how hungry and sick we are? Let me take you to the tombs of two of my children.” That was yet another reminder that what we do at i58:10 Media makes a difference.
Why do you do what you do for i58:10 Media?
If you want more of Jesus you go where Jesus is, and by helping the poor, broken and hurting I feel like I get to hang with Jesus.
Describe your family?
My wife Barbara and I have 5 daughters. I need a “Man Cave”.
