Keith Kupp, of Kupp-Tone Studios in Adamstown, PA suggested that I contact you. I've used Keith's studios for recording several projects. And, if you know Keith's work, you know that he does an outstanding job. If you'd have an interest in my CD's for play on your station, please reply. Thank You. Henry Erb

At 62 yrs old my wife and I have been taking the family (now with six grandchildren) up to Beaver Creek Farm Cabins in Lancaster County for some 33years now. I am a regular listener of 94.5 FM but for some reason my table radio that we travel with could not clearly pick it up this week. I guess it was due to the foul weather. I was going through the stations and found WADV-"WOW". What a station! We love Southern gospel and what a treat to hear Jake Hess, James Blackwood, JD Sumner,the Big Chief and so many others not to mention the Bluegrass Gospel ! Well I found another favorite station Thank you Jesus, ain't God good? I only wish that I could pick the station up at home here in Parkville, MD. Thank you WADV! Enjoy Joe Kopeck

Today 8/10/16 some time between 4:00p.m. and 5:00p.m. your station played a song that caught my attention. I quickly wrote down these words from the song. "Army marching on for a hero," The song was about soldiers being heroes but also about Christ as the greatest hero. I have tried to find the lyrics on line but have not been able too. Could you please review your play list and see if you could find the song I am referring too? Please email me if you can find the song. Thank you in advance for your assistance in helping to find the title of this song. I love listening to your station - listen to it first thing in the morning and keep my car radio tuned to your station. God bless you for your music ministry.

I wrote a song called "Searching" about an old man that was turned away from church because he had on bib overalls. The Unknown DJ called me the last day of 1998 and wanted two more cassettes with that song on it as it was playing with many, many requests. I would like to make a trip to Lebanon and Hershey and was curious if the Unknown DJ is still there or even alive. He had two daughters, one named Julie that I met at the quartet convention years ago and would like to contact again. The song Searching is still playing in many locations, not necessarily y charting stations. As a matter of fact, the Unknown DJ told me that he gave up being a Singing News station because they wanted him to list certain songs in order and he said he wouldn't because the song Searching by Gene Young was outplaying Jeff & Sheri, The Cathedral Quartet and many others. Can you enlighten me on how to get hold of Julie maybe. My wife and I now travel as YoungSong and would love to find a church to minister in, possibly this coming weekend. We have a new CD that has 22 of our most requested songs on it including Searching. Also if you go to YouTube and type in Freedom by YoungSong you can hear the song that we wrote to honor our Veterans and Christ and see the video. This is another much requested song. Thank yo for any help you can provide us. Blessings in Christ, Gene (423) 677-5093

Accomplished Teen Organist Aaron Patterson Performing at Reading City Church Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. Philadelphia student will play the historic Lehigh organ totaling 4,222 pipes, Berks County’s largest musical instrument Reading, Pa—Aaron Patterson, 17, Philadelphia, an accomplished organist, child prodigy and frequent performer on the John Wanamaker Building (Macy’s) organ, will present a free concert of organ music at the First City Parish of Reading City Church (RCC), 611 Washington St., Reading, on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. Patterson just won first prize in the prestigious High School Division at North America’s Albert Schweitzer 2017 Organ Festival held Sept. 29 through Oct. 1 at Hartford, CT. high school. He was one of only three finalists chosen from about 30 young U.S. organists who entered. He won second prize at Hartford in 2015. Pastor Vince Donnachie said the young musician will play the historic Opus 30 pipe organ installed by the Lehigh Organ Company in 1986, and originally the Opus R-612 model built by M.P. Moller in 1958. The largest musical instrument in Berks County, the RCC electro-mechanical organ has 61 voices and 80 ranks totaling more than 4,200 pipes. “We are pleased to have a musician of Aaron’s talent performing here for a spectacular concert we hope will be one of many musical events we will offer at First City Parish of RCC, “ said Pastor Donnachie. The former and historic First UCC church was built in 1753 and was recently donated to First City Parish, part of Reading City Church, as part of an endowment. Patterson has performed at various venues throughout the United States including Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, Rochester’s Christ Episcopal Church and Atlanta’s Peachtree United Methodist Church. He said, “I am looking forward to the honor of playing Bach and other composers on this exceptional instrument before the people of Reading and Berks County in one of the area’s most significant and historic landmarks.” The three-keyboard Reading organ is very versatile with its six divisions—Great, Swell, Choir, Positiv, Antiphonal and Pedal, and, according to Patterson, is carefully designed for playing organ literature from various historical periods, for use with instrumental ensembles and orchestra and for accompaniment of choral works, oratorios, anthems and solos, as well as congregational singing and liturgy. “It’s sound is quite special and soothing,” said Patterson Patterson, who is a home-schooled high school senior, currently studies organ with Alan Morrison, one of America’s premier concert organists and the head of the Organ Department at the Curtis Institute of Music. From 2008 to last summer, he studied with Dennis Elwell, Minister of Music at Philadelphia’s Overbrook Presbyterian Church. He also studies piano at the Settlement Music School, Philadelphia, with Dolly Krasnopolsky and plays in a piano trio at Settlement coached by Jean Louise Shook. Since 2014, Patterson has been organist and choir director at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Northeast Philadelphia and, prior to that held, the same position at All Saints Episcopal Church in the same neighborhood. He is also the recipient of a grant from the Sansom Foundation administered by Friends of the Wanamaker Organ. He has attended the Philadelphia Young Artists Organ Camp, the Eastman Summer Organ Academy, the Organ Institute at the Oregon Bach Festival, and two Pipe Organ Encounters, working collectively with a most renowned group of the top concert organists in America. His master classes include those taught by Stephen Tharp, Johann Vexo, Michel Bouvard, Diane Meridith Belcher, John Walker, Thomas Sheehan, Kathleen Scheide, and Lee de Mets. Pastor Donnachie said the First UCC Foundation run by the Berks Community Foundation will channel funds into programs that benefit children and seniors and reduce hunger in Berks County, including the First UCC Senior Center at St. Peter’s UCC, Whitfield, which has a program to serve meals at the Opportunity House that will continue. “It is also an honor for us to continue the work of this church founded by the Religious Society of Dutch Reformed Calvinists, who petitioned Thomas and Richard Penn for the land in 1752. The first log house church was built a year later, was replaced by a stone building in 1761 and finally by a brick church in 1832, which underwent major renovations in 1875 and is basically the church of today. “During the 19th century’s Gilded Age when Reading was a prosperous center of manufacturing, First UCC had a membership of about 1,000. More recently, the aging congregation dropped to under 100 members, and they generously decided to donate the church to RCC,” Donnachie explained.
