English: “What’s Going On?” October 2016
From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English
He proudly embraces the label “hillbilly.” And he says elements of the culture found in America’s small towns and rural areas are not unlike those found in the impoverished neighborhoods of inner cities around the world. Author J.D. Vance made his way out of a small, working class industrial town in Ohio to earn a law degree from Yale. He credits his grandmother and his service in the U.S. Marines with setting him on the right path. In his book, Hillbilly Elegy, Vance discusses ways that its relatively privileged readers can help America’s forgotten poor. He shares his thoughts with Paul Ladd and Your New Life Station’s listeners. The interviews will run on consecutive Mondays, October 10th and 17th.
The Pacific Rim and Southwest Asia
The Pacific Rim, the Indian subcontinent and southwest Asia provide the reasons Your New Life Station broadcasts the International English Hour. The Pacific Rim is that part of the Eastern Hemisphere that encompasses the English-prevalent countries of the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, and New Zealand. Additionally—English is widely spoken in Indonesia. And English is the official language of government and commerce in the southwest Asian countries of India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
Your New Life Station’s broadcast schedule makes use of Universal Coordinated Time (UTC), a 24-hour system also known as Greenwich Mean Time. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) is four hours behind UTC; Central Time (CDT) is five hours behind. Outside the U.S.—most locations are on standard time all year rather than daylight time. Karachi is five hours ahead of UTC. Mumbai and New Delhi are five-and-a-half hours ahead. Manila, Beijing, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Kuala Lampur are eight hours ahead. And Tokyo is nine hours ahead of UTC.
You can also use this website www.knls.org to hear the English Hour if you’re not into shortwave radio. You can also access the broadcast through the KNLS app on your mobile device or through Google or Safari.
The English Hour is the Asian continent’s source for the music of our time and the message of all time. While we work to provide a geographical balance in the topics we feature, news about the USA is of great interest to many listeners around the world. The English Hour does tell stories about life in the United States and the state of Alaska, where the KNLS transmitter is located. Two of the programs are titled The American Highway and Postcard from Alaska. They often include a discussion of “American” principles—principles rooted in Christianity that are universally understood and applied. And our Eye on the World stories often show the interdependence of the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
Since our target audience is mostly non-Christians, our content is different from a typical Christian format station in America. While we provide our share of positive, uplifting content, some of our programming also provides an honest look at the dark side of life on Earth. Indeed, some program segments may raise questions that a thoughtful truth seeker will ask. And other segments, such as the Bible or Christian lifestyle lessons, serve to answer those questions.
Music to Love
Music is a universal language. Probably 80 per cent of the world’s pop tunes are sung in English, and are enjoyed by people everywhere, many who are themselves not proficient in English. The English hour features your favorite songs of the 80’s, 90’s, and today. International pop charts show that your favorite music is also the favorite of people who are culturally diverse—whether in Nairobi, Sydney, Singapore, or Jakarta.
The songs are pop, rock, r & b, and occasional hip-hop and country music that crosses over to the pop charts. The English Hour generally features music by artists from the U.S., the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. Lately, music artists from all over Europe have found their names on or near the top of international pop charts.
In August, English Hour listeners will hear new music from Calvin Harris, James Arthur, Leon, Meghan Trainor featuring Yo Gotti, Mike Perry featuring Shy Martin, Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar, and Shawn Mendes.
Souder & Friends
It may bring a smile or it may bring a tear. Award-winning videographer Larry Souder continues his radio series of fascinating people and interesting places. One of the fascinating people is our own Dick Brackett. Dick, who’s played Bozo the Clown on TV, will be the subject of Souder & Friends in October. And Larry will take Your New Life Station’s listeners to a musical stage play based on the life of Holocaust survivor Corrie Ten Boom.
News to Know
The English hour features reports about topics of current interest. Marcy Bryan reports about entertainment, business, and religious news. Kelly Ann Monahan has the latest developments in medicine, science, and computer technology. Paul Ladd provides special reports about diverse topics, religious and secular. Doug Poling provides commentary on the news from a Christian perspective on Today’s News & the Good News. And Bob Waliszewski of Focus on the Family provides Plugged-in reviews of the latest movies, music, and computer games.
