Bright messages on a dreary day

Even though we might be yelling at Old Man Winter’s return today, we’ll try to offer some light!

We were reminded by Karen Huang that scripture gives us a beautiful transition from John 3:16 to Romans 5. Karen shares “Will You Still Love Me?” Read it by clicking here.

Dylan shared Tim Gustafson’s devotional, “Stolen Gods,” which speaks to the awesome power and uniqueness of our God. Read it by clicking here.

Today’s ticket winner: Denise of Mount Vernon! She wins tickets to Friday night’s show at the Knox Memorial Theatre.

Presented by MTVartsfind out more here.

Thanks for listening!

Mystery Monday

Today, me, Malisa and Joe, changed some things up a little bit on mystery Monday! We have decided that we are going to do a mystery question for the first 3 weeks of the month and then, on the last Monday of the month,  do our mystery box show!

Our Mystery Question today was: 100 people were surveyed, and we want you to give the top two answer to this question… “Name a plant people might grow themselves.”

Answer: Tomatoes (33) and the flowers/roses (31)

Followed apples (14), zucchini (7), plums (7).

Congratulation to Abigail from Mount Vernon for guessing the correct top two answers to our mystery questions! She won a $5 gift card to Troyer’s of Apple Vally.

We also gave away two tickets to one of the Annie productions by MTVarts! Congrats to Karolyn from Gambier who was our caller number 5. If you want more information about this production click HERE.

Sonfest Who Knew!

Another very jam-packed day on the Afternoon Drive! Ah!
So today, for Who-Knew Wednesday, we did a very timely ‘who-knew’ topic…

Sonfest 2017 is coming up very quickly, and we’re getting so excited!
We heard from our Sonfest coordinator, Bharon Hoag, about everything that’s going to be happening on Saturday, and why he’s so excited for Sonfest 2017.

You can check out our conversation with Bharon here!
And if you would like more information about Sonfest, click here!

Our Who Knew Wednesday question today was, of course, Sonfest related!
The Sonfest headliner this year is Plumb, and we had a little bit harder question today for Who Knew Wednesday, as we give away a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley! Our Plumb related WKW question was…
When was Plumb born? (MM/DD/YY)
The answer is March 9th, 1975!

Congratulations to Wendy from Mount Vernon for correctly answering our trivia question today!

We were so excited to be able to give away another pair of Sonfest tickets today! Our Sonfest Artist Trivia question today was about Johnny Diaz!
Question: Where is Johnny Diaz originally from? (City and state)
Answer: Lakeland, Florida
Congratulations to Amy from Mount Vernon for calling in and correctly guessing!

We would also like to wish congratulations to our Lion King Junior ticket winner Kristen from Mount Vernon . They will be receiving two tickets to the MTVArts, ArtsIQ production of the Lion King Junior! And if you would like more information about MTVArts and their productions, click here!
