Jack is very well known
in the hills of Tennessee and the Carolinas,
his shows airing daily. He plays a blend
of Southern and Country Gospel, Christian
Country, and Contemporary Gospel Music,
to the enjoyment and blessing of listeners
throughout a large region. Jack is an award
winning artist several times over with NACMAI
and he understands and lends a hand to new
quality artists who have just begun to send
their music to radio stations for airplay.
He also writes a column of inspirational
articles called "Jack's Corner"
which is featured on this website and many
other sites online. Jack's lovely wife,
Linda, is a recording artist and her songs
show up on playlists often so Jack is especially
aware of the opportunities that singers
need to get their talents exposed to the
listening audiences around the world. I've
been told by a person who knows the Hodges
personally that they are a couple of precious
Christians and dedicated to the ministry
of furthering the Gospel.
A note about Jack
first DJ to call me and tell me he was playing
my music and had some wonderful comments
about my singing. That was so encouraging
to me and he will always hold a special
place in my heart for his sweet spirit,
taking the time to call me personally. Now
that's a very nice thing to do for an independent
artist who is anxious to know that the DJs
are playing their songs!

I can't properly express just how
much I value Rhonnie's help and friendship. She's a sincere
supporter of my music ministry and this tribute page is
very much a result of her working to promote my songs
to the great DJs featured here! She's also allowed me
to record several of the great songs she's written. I've
grown to love and respect her and I'm proud to call her
my friend and sister in the Lord!
Special Tribute to Rhonnie:
I've been in the
music business for many years and I know of no one else
who can balance the professionalism, integrity and the
heart and spirit of promotion as well as Rhonnie does
in behalf of her clients.
Hers is one of
the few businesses that is based not merely with the
business end of the music industry, but a goal that
is foremost in helping independent artists be heard
and their music distributed among DJs and radio programs
around the world because she has her whole heart in
what she does. To Rhonnie, the desire to help others
succeed is first in her priorities, business second.
But make no mistake, she knows this business and is
She works many
long hours daily, faithfully contacting DJs to make
them aware of her artists and their work. Rhonnie is
extremely popular with those DJs and programmers because
of her outgoing and likable personality and sincere
manner. She's also persistent!
Rhonnie goes out
of her way, bends over backwards to diligently help
new artists get the exposure they need to get a foot
in the door of a highly competitive business. She's
creative with new ideas for the seasoned artist as well.
Rhonnie is a dedicated
Christian lady who has a tender heart and is generous
to a fault. She's also a talented songwriter so she
has a good sense of what makes a song promotable and
goes after that with a passion. I highly recommend Rhonnie
as a promoter.

Roy is a DJ with an interesting
heritage of country music to his credit.
He's played and performed with major country
stars throughout the years. He has his own
daily radio program at www.roycost.com,
where he plays independant artist's music
as well as his own songs. Part of the program
is a talk show where he features guest artists
for a friendly chat. Roy is a man of faith
and on Sundays he does a Gospel Music Show.
He's been so faithful to play my Gospel
songs and I greatly appreciate his support
of my music. One of the things I like about
Roy is his sincerity and desire to promote
Roy is a multi talented
guy. He plays many instruments, writes songs,
sings, is a recording engineer, and has
headed up several bands. He writes some
beautiful instrumentals as well. I'm currently
working on some recitations for my next
project and will be using some of Roy's
music. He also records his own music in
his own recording studio. I'm amazed at
the sound quality of the tracks he creates.
Roy has his own record label, VEGA and records
part-time for EHKING, Santa Fe, Texas and
T. J. Murr's Roadshow Record label in Oklahoma
City. He had a hit song in 2004 called "Rockabilly
Baby," which went to #48 on the 'World's
Most Played Chart.'
Roy is the most generous
hearted DJ I've ever met. He's truly eager
to help other artists get their music played.
He's very supportive and spends a lot of
his time getting the word out about indpendant
artist's songs. He shares his own music
freely and is such a gentleman to work with.
He's a rare breed in today's music industry.
I've grown to admire Roy greatly through
all the dealings I've had with him in my
own music ministry.
Roy is very popular with
the European DJs and his songs are regularly
on the Euro charts. I think I know what
endears him to the DJs there. It's his 'down
home' sincere, pure country style. When
you listen to Roy sing, you get the feeling
the songs are coming straight from his heart.
The first time I listened to one of his
albums I felt a peace and a genuinely good
feeling. That's what real country music
is all about.
Roy started his music career
in 1959 when he organized 'The Shadows'
band and from then on he was part of several
other bands and worked people like Ralph
Emery and many other Country Music Greats.
He's had the encouragement and friendship
of some folks like Floyd Cramer, Bob Luman,
Teddy Riedel, Joe Stampley, and many others.
Roy has a BSE and Masters Degree and was
for a time, the principal at Mayflower Schools
in Little Rock, Arkansas. Later he served
in Viet Nam. This man definitely has a diverse
and interesting background. He keeps going
and going even when life deals him some
hard cards and keeps a good attitude all
Roy is still active in live
music and has his own band, "Cedar Creek
Arkansas" and also works with recording
artist, Dixie Harrison.
Alison is the first DJ to
ever call me from outside of the USA! What
a thrill and a special honor to have her
take the interest and time to do that. I
fell in love instantly with her accent,
and of course she's a sweet person and I
liked her immediately. There's just something
about hearing a person's voice to make you
feel closer and like you know them more
intimately. I enjoyed our conversation so
much. She told me about her family and asked
about mine. She was really interested in
me as a person. Alison has been playing
my songs ever since she received my CDs.
She had been borrowing Pete Harrison's CDs
of my songs and Pete wrote to ask me to
send her my CDs so she would have her own
copies. That's how I got acquainted with
her. Bless her heart for her faithfulness
in supporting my music. She's a truly lovely
lady who wants very much to help artists
and songwriters all over the world. She's
a jewel! And an angel to the industry!
Here's something that Alison
wrote about herself:
I'm a radio announcer with
WPR 101.3 FM in Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia.
I have one program fortnightly. Thursday
night is a Country Gospe Hour between 8
and 9 PM and my aim is to support artists
from Australia and overseas in Gospel Country
Music. I would appreciate any material in
the form of CDs - tapes to promote on my
program. I will also be sending back to
the artist the playsheets from my program
each fortnight. Hope to hear from you soon.

Pete and Marlene have been
faithfully playing my songs on their programs
and also very often sending me the playlists
with friendly little greetings from Australia
.. for a long time now. They must have a
great sense of humor and I'm sure they have
a great following in their listening audience.
I hear from others that they're such nice
people! And I know they'd be happy to help
you if you need someone to play your songs
because I know they sincerely want to help
artists get a break and get airplay. Thanks
to you, Pete and Marlene! For playing my
Here is something Pete wrote:
My name is Peter Harrison.
I am a radio announcer on a radio station
101.3 FM in Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia.
I have been with the station for 7 years
and enjoy what I do. My programs vary from
Pop Music, Rock and Roll, and Country. Country
Music is what I specialize in. I have been
a committed member for 3 of those 7 years.
My other role being the fundraising coordinator
for 5 yrs. I'm presenting three country
music programs per week. Monday nights between
6 pm and 9 pm (Australian Country Request

What I play is Country Music from artists
all over the world. I also have a rock and
roll show on Tuesday nights 8 pm to 10 pm.
I have a very large listening
audience across Northeast Victoria and into
the State of New South Wales. So it would
be my pleasure to play your CD and promote
your music on my shows. I know there is
a lot of great artists around the world
and their music is not heard here in Australia.
But you can be sure, if you send me any
of your material, it will certainly be played
on my shows. And I sincerely hope I can
help you in the music field in any way.

Anne-Lykke is an unusually
talented and interesting person. I've learned
from our correspondence that she studies
languages and is a model (you can see from
her picture that she's a beautiful girl)
and she loves animals. We have that in common.
There is much more to this girl than just
being a DJ! I want to thank her for playing
my music. She's been playing my songs since
last Christmas, bless her heart. She loves
to write and says she could write a book
when she gets started (another thing we
have in common - smile) but she wrote a
short bio about herself .. Here it is:
Hello Everyone! My name
is Anne-Lykke Elling. I've worked with country
music since 1993. The name of the radio
station is: Albertslund Naer Radio, and
it's located in the area of Copenhagen.
We are many people connected to the radio,
and most of us are volunteers. I have 3
programs, each Monday, and I play a lot
of country music in two of my programs,
often with a touch of gospel, country rock,
folk and pop. I'm a big supporter of the
"Indie" artists and I"m so
lucky to receive many CDs from artists from
around the world. When I'm not broadcasting
I do a lot other things. I take English
and Spanish lessons twice a week; I do a
little acting and modeling which I like
very much, and I write songs and poems.
You can find some of my love poems at: www.poetry.com.
I was born in the country,
and animals have always had a very big place
in my heart. I have two cats and two birds

To read some of Anne's Poetry:
Wyn is a DJ from New Zealand
and I've just recently become acquainted
with him when he replied after receiving
my CDs for radio review. He was so willing
to consider my music, always appreciated
of course. I don't know Wyn very well yet,
but he's been so cordial and friendly to
me, encouraging me with the nice things
he's said about my songs, and I look forward
to a growing friendship with him and his
wife as one of the fine DJs who play my
music. I always try to get to know the DJs
families if I can as well.
Here's something Wyn wrote
I am a retired worker in
many varied and interesting jobs. My trade
was a fitter welder. I have worked on large
sheep stations. I have always liked the
outdoor life, fishing, hunting, shooting.
I was a member of a pistol club. I am married
to my lovely wife, Joy. We have no children
together; we have both been married before.
Joy and I have been together for 12 years
and very happy 12 years they have been.
We both love Country and Gospel music. I
have two daughters, both in their 40s now.
I lost my son in 1998. He was 35. Joy has
a daughter and a son; her son is living
and working in London.
I have all my life had an
interest in radio. I was DXing in a big
way for many years. We lived 96 kms from
our main shopping town and have now moved
to Oamaru. I heard of the radio station
and decided to make myself available. I
was accepted and I started doing my own
shows after a short time. I started listing
my playlists just a few months ago and have
made some wonderful contacts with artists
and managers. I enjoy what I do and I like
to support the Indies as much as I can.
I am now a trustee of the station. We are
non-commercial and on the air 24/7.
The town of Oamaru is my
home town I was born here, but most of my
life was spent in the north island of New
Zealand until returning south in 1992. My
Grandmother was born here in 1876.
I supply my own music for
my shows as all our presenters do, some
we buy for ourselves and other music we
get from artists and record companies who
send their music to us for airplay. This
is very much appreciated. I love using the
computer. I believe it helps to keep the
My first playlists were
listed as Wyn's Country .. after a while
I looked at this and thought it needed changing
as I'd started to play more Gospel Music.
I changed it to Wyn's Country & Gospel.
All the very best for now
and in the future Genelle. I look forward
to hearing more of your wonderful voice.

Pete is another DJ who's
become important to my music ministry. His
love for Gospel Music is a plus with me
as that's where my heart is. I want to thank
him for considering and then playing several
of my songs. It's an honor to have him support
my music since he's a man of discerment
and taste in music. I guess you could say
that Pete is fond of good old down home
country style music and Gospel is a big
part of that genre. And, Pete is obviously
so good to the Independent artist. Thanks
Here's a short bio I found
online about Pete:
Pete Smith hails from Sheffield,
England and has been involved in country
music all his life. Since 1976 Pete has
been a radio broadcaster and has contributed
to Britain's Number One Country Music Newspaper,
"Country Music Roundup" with his
monthly column, "Pete Smith's Rock
Pile," originally titled: "Country
Preferring smaller radio
stations, Pete is able to cater his programs
to his listener's tastes, always looking
for inspirational songs, ".. which
give hope to the future and praise to our
Lord God." Pete explains, "I find
these songs the most satisfying. It was
the lack of such songs by artists signed
to the major labels that led me to the Independents.
Whilst finding a wealth of Gospel songs
I also found a treasure trove of real country
and have been sold on Independents ever
For the past 22 years since
1982, Pete's column, "Sounds Country"
has delighted and entertained readers of
"The Advisor," a regional newspaper
in the UK.

Peter is also another DJ
who's become important to my music ministry.
He also loves Gospel Music as is reflected
in the many Gospel Songs he plays. He played
several of my songs right after receiving
my CDs. That is so appreciated when a DJ
does that. Many times we send out our CDs,
hoping that a DJ will find something they
like well enough to play it. And a DJ who
is so willing to listen and then give the
songs airplay is a treasure to an independent
singer. Peter even took the time to visit
my website and listen to my music. Thanks
