A note from the manager – July 2019

Now that our financial year is over, I wanted to let you know more precisely about our financial position. Our goal was $875,000 and we ended up with $836,285 from our faithful listeners. This is a new record for Life 97.9 donations! Thank you! As I mentioned on the air, thanks to careful money management, we are able to pay our bills…

A note from the manager – June 2019

Back in 1996, I moved from a commercial Christian radio station to a non-commercial Christian station. The main thing on my mind as I made this move was, “Now I’ve got to ask listeners for money.” The prospect was not appealing. Now, after 23 years in non-commercial ministries, I wouldn’t dream of going back. What made the difference…

A note from the manager – May 2019

Happy belated Mother’s Day! Observing Mother’s Day gives all of us the chance to reflect on the influence our moms have played in our lives. When I think about my mom, the word that comes to my mind is love, unconditional love. I don’t know about you, but when I think about how someone has loved me unconditionally, it prompts me to consider…

A note from the manager – April 2019

Life along 52nd Ave South is going to be a little crazy this summer. This is because of the reconstruction project going on; widening the road from 45th St to 63rd St, which is right in front of our studio building. However, in exchange for a summer of detours, we will gain a beautiful new four-lane road, complete with turn lanes and traffic…

A note from the manager – February 2019

Homelessness is a problem everywhere. I know that we typically think of homeless people as old men dealing with substance abuse problems, but that’s not true. Any one of us could end up homeless, given a certain set of circumstances. Job loss, bankruptcy, marital breakup, and domestic abuse; when these things happen to people who…

A note from the manager – January 2019

Hello! A couple of weeks ago during a fundraiser, one of the on-air hosts referenced the Gospel story of the feeding of the 5,000. The point was that even gifts we consider small, like five loaves and two fish, are important. Jesus multiplies the gifts, and needs are met. Reflecting on that, I went back to my office and read the text.…

A note from the manager – November 2018

A note from the manager – October 2018

If you visited our studio earlier this month, you would have seen our staff in full “Fall Share Mode”. There were so many details to care for, from phones and computers, to volunteers and guest hosts. We had to make decisions about which songs to play, and how to encourage our listeners to invest in the ministry here. Another element…

A note from the manager – September 2018

Hello! I know you’re busy, so I’ll keep this brief.  I’m Doug Smith, and I’m the new station manager here at Life 97.9. Communication is what we do here at the radio station, but there are some things we can’t put on the radio for one reason or another. That’s why I hope to communicate some of the “behind the scenes” information from time.…
