I'm a angel for Jesus Christ. So in numbers God takes children from one month old upwards. You'll have to take care of Thayer bodies untill they return after the holly war they are innocent. So don't bury your children for Christ sake

I was disappointed when I moved to Grapevine from Atlanta that there were no Jazz stations. I am SO glad to find this station now that I live in McKinney. The signal carries clearly down into Richardson where I work.

Afternoon, I am emailing to ask for help/donated air time. My mother in law was diagnosed with COPD in 2008, this is daily struggle for her, she can not do the things we take for granted. She has been in and out of the hospital with pneumonia several times. She can not be outside more then minutes at a time, she has three grandchildren she isn't involved with as much as she would like. My father in law help her with basic things, blow drying her her bathing putting on her shoes because she gets winded. On September 13, 2016 two days before her birthday she received a call letting her know she was approved for her double lung transplant. As we all know with any medical treatment there are out of pocket expenses. We have opened a go fund me page as well contacted different restaurants to help with a donation night of 10% of the people who state they are there for the donation night. On November 15, 2016 at 4 pm to 11pm, Texas Road House has agreed to do a donation night for us. Everyone that comes in and states they are there for the donation night, my mother in law will receive 10% for their bill donated to her medical fund. The only issue is advertising. We have printed 100's of flyers then told we need a permit. I thought I would reach out to the radio stations to help us, see if they might donate air time the day before and the day of to help advertise the Texas Road House event. I consider myself lucky, not everyone has a relationship with their in laws like I do. I grew up with my husband from age seven. My mother in law Suzanne, her house was where all the neighbor kids wanted to be, she made room for us all. She raised more kids then her own and provided for more kids then her own at times. So, this is more then just helping my mother in law and doing the right things as her daughter in law, it is out of love and respect. I lost my dad in my early twenties an I feel it is my duty and responsibility to help raise funds. I was not ready to lose my dad, I know my husband, my kids and father in law are not ready to lose their mother, their Nana and wife so I am asking you to please help me save them some pain of losing someone so dear while they are not ready. I know this pain and I am not ready to see them go through it. The funds raised will go directly to an account dedicated to her medical bills. If you need proof of her condition I can provide a letter form her Lung coordinator.

Hello, how’s everything. My name is Taiye Owolabi (HolyBoyTy). I really love connecting with music industries like this because it’s all about distributing music for the glory of God by the holy spirit. I was someone who used to drink and smoke 3 years ago but when Jeremy Camp’s songs accidentally got into my i pod his lyrics made me think about God’s mercy and love for everyone. Also God really arrested me when I watched Reach Records rapper Lecrae’s testimony which brought me to my knees and made me surrender to the most high. Music is such a powerful tool God uses to win souls everyday and it’s amazing. My good friend Eve Makilya is a very talented artist who is also a strong believer in our lord and savior. Eve is extremely talented and displays her music in English and also her native traditional language. She also has a great chance to be a successful international artist. Like myself we both have an extraordinary passion for music and we are grateful to God for allowing us to be able to share our gift to the world by God’s outstanding grace. I want to share with you two songs by Eve Makilya and two songs by myself as well. We would love to have these songs played on this station, played by Djs at different events and mixed as well. This would be a huge blessing for us. Please email me at God Bless You in Jesus name. Amen Eve Makilya - Bwana Wa Mabwana - Eve Makilya - Pendo Leto - Taiye Owolabi (HolyBoyTy) - Song Of Songs - Taiye Owolabi (HolyBoyTy) Ft. Eddy Moyeno - Different Level -

This radio stations is GREAT... on weekdays. Great jazz great music. BUT on the weekends they play pop and Spanish and classical. This would be fine if they only played it in the day because I listen to jazz when I sleep but NO it's the opposite. Sunday's are the worst because of the pop music and I hate it. Just play only jazz plz. If I had to rate this stations it be 8/10 only because of the weekend music. On weekdays it's 11/10

After moving here January 2015, from Birmingham, I knew a city the of Dallas, had some jazz stations, but was very disappointed to only find one (1) and it is classical or contemporary jazz. I am more of a smooth jazz listener. So, I listen to SiriusXM in one car, but don’t have it in my everyday car. Can you all please mix it up a little to help me satisfy my smooth jazz appetite. The station in Birmingham, 91.1 WVSU, check it out, if want some ideas. Thank you

Good Morning, We are Yemoja Foundation; a 501(c)(3) purposed to provide adequate and necessary resources to underprivileged individuals in Dallas and eventually, with your help, the World. “Yemoja”, comes from the ancient African Yoruba culture. Her name translates to “Mother Of Many Children”; she embodies the concepts of community, healing, and cyclical provision. This principal of equating what you receive from your community and in turn, giving it back to those around you. It is our vision to encourage all of Mother Earth's children to contribute to into this cycle and recognize that an individual's actions are as impactful to change as the entire collective. Our vision to raise this awareness amongst Dallas starts with our three-pronged system to supply resources that are pivotal to individuals who are ready and willing to help themselves and their communities. This mission is comprised of; Natural Nutrition and Holistic Healing We believe it is Human right to have access to balanced, non-processed, whole foods. This allows for a healthy foundation to be created for individuals to realign their focus to more important issues that face their families and communities. Education Tomorrow belongs to the youth of Today. It is our duty to educate, inform, and engage not only our own children, but all children globally for the benefit of Humanity’s evolution toward a sustainable, balanced, whole World. Self Realization/ Self Empowerment Awareness of the “Self” is the first step to recognizing the power that an individual holds to enact change for themselves and their community. We plan to initiate this process through providing sale domicile and, what we call, “Defeatist Deprogramming”. We will see our community banish perceived limitations, and allow our barriers to become pathways to brighter futures for everyone today, tomorrow, and years to come. All of our work that we are purposed to accomplish comes with many trials, errors, and ultimately, victories! Here is how You can help us… On June 8th 2019 at Cole Park, we will be hosting Uptown Dallas’s biggest event this Summer: Uptown Picnic At Cole Park! A family fun, FREE ADMISSION, festival style fundraiser for our inaugural project, Uncle Nebuchadnezzar's Mobile Garden, A Dallas first, ‘Uncle Neb’ will be travelling to the “Food Deserts” that plague over 40% of Dallas County (USDA, 2018). His dual-purpose starts with providing a delivery service for fresh, Organic produce and natural sundry items to the elderly, homeless, shut-in, and veterans of Dallas, and the surrounding areas. This project is also purposed to engage with our one of our trusted partners, Incarnation House, in order to utilize the underprivileged youth that they work closely with to give them internships with work they are proud to be a part of, along with keeping them on a positive track that breaks the cycle of negative behavior. Our planned attractions for our event on June 8th are to include Organic Boxed Lunches available with donation, $5000 in Raffle Prizes, Bounce House, An All-Ages Basketball Contest, Big Screen Karaoke Competition, and we are very excited to present… Uptowns First Local Business Market! 12 small, local vendors to be presented at our event in a tented market for all to come and see just how prosperous our community is. We are so excited to be hosting this event for Uptown Dallas to attend, enjoy, and get excited for what is to come of Dallas’s newest, and fastest growing Non-Profit. Ultimately, in order to make this a prosperous event for all of our sponsors, attendees, and board members, we need LOTS of people to show up and fill that park up! Our grassroots campaigning has brought plenty of attention, but we are hoping to partner with 88.1 radio station in order to blast the news of our FREE event to all of Dallas. We would be honored, and very grateful for any advertising you may be able to extend to our registered Non-Profit in order to make this an event that will greatly benefit the communities that your organization currently advertises to. We want to be sure that this event will create lasting memories for all who come to join us. Please let us know if you, or anyone you know may be able to help us in this effort to blast this event out to Dallas families. Thank you, Amal Hassan Yemoja Foundation
