It was great to be joined tonight by Phoenix 98 FM’s NIkki Mills. She has an exciting new job with Revelation TV in Spain. NIkki talked about how she felt her having this job was God’s idea. She also talked about the importance of faith in her life.
We featured the new EP from Colorado based Christian singer and songwriter Heather Lynn. There were four artists with birthdays today. The feature chart from this week was from 1976. This included Jeans on by David Dundas. This hit started as a tv commercial and because it became so popular a full song was written and recorded. The result was a top 10 hit in the UK and a top 20 hit in the USA.
