When I was at a very young age, I felt that my true calling
was to preach. So I "did a Jonah" and ran for years. Finally
after years of running and praying about the calling that I
thought that I was supposed to do, it finally hit me. I thought
that I was supposed to be a preacher in a church but that is not
what God had wanted from me. Confused yet? I was!! I have always
loved music and wanted to be a DJ from as far back as I could
remember, my mom had said that I used to go around pretending to
be Wolman Jack with a hairbrush in my little hand (hehe). A few
years later, I became disabled and couldn’t do much out of the
house. Already being an internet junky with limited things I
could do because of my disability, I stumbled onto INTERNET
RADIO, and from there my journey in music and ministry began.
I started listening to different stations and I wasn’t getting
what I wanted from Rock, Hip-hop or any other type I could find.
With me being a mixed music lover all of my life, I began to DJ
at a radio station called Hot Rocks Radio and loved doing it.
Wanting to move forward in my new obsession, I moved to a
station called WSRN and was a general manager for 4 stations,
and there I also started my own. Then one day, GOD spoke to me
and said that this isn’t what he wanted me to play and who am I
to question a voice from nowhere (lol). At this time I hade been
weakened and needed a "pick me up" and God provided as always. I
prayed and prayed cause I really loved what I was doing but GOD
wanted me to play his music and I had none.
Then one day I missed typed the URL for the station that I
was managing (Which was Solid Rock Radio and I played popular
rock there) and guess what? A Christian radio station!! woohoo!
I contacted the manager and he started me off as program
director and I enjoyed it so much. He helped me get started,
gave me some music, and sent me on my way. The owner of the
station and I wanted to start a Southern Gospel radio station
because I love that kind of music from my redneck heritage
(Southern Kentucky). Thus Gloryland Radio was born. A few months
later, my good friend Donna at KKR contacted me about her radio
station and wanted me to DJ one night a week for her. So I tried
to go back to playing just regular rock and it didn't feel right
then I had an idea!! I couldn't be the only one who had felt
like this and I wanted to do something different, something GOD
would be proud of. I took all the great Christian music I had
gathered and put it together and had my first show. It was a
huge success!! My call may have not been to preach in
church on a Sunday morning, but it was defiantly to get the word
of God out there. And that day, The Redneck Disciple Show was
Now, I do a live show once a week and produce it for radio
stations around the world and offer it on my site to be aired at
different times and days throughout the week. So far I have 8
other internet stations and an AM station airing it and the list
is still growing. Who would have thought that the little kid
running around with a hairbrush would actually grow up to be a
DJ and doing Gods work all at the same time.
The show is a listener supported and with out the listeners I
can’t do it. If you feel the need to donate please do so at…
Now you have The Redneck Disciple Show Story... some
childhood dreams really do come true as long as you follow Gods
plan. Thank you and God Bless!!
