Saturday News Roundup #55
In the news:
- Via Libbi Perry Stuffle, Mike and Kelly Bowling are set to be released from the hospital today. Apparently Kelly will be in a body cast for three months, and Mike has “a very long road ahead.” News reports indicate that his seat was actually ejected from the bus after the bus crashed into the tractor trailer. (That news story, incidentally, contains a close-up picture of the demolished front end of the bus.)
- Word has it that new Inspirations tenor Jodi Hosterman is taking their arrangements through the roof. Who ever thought the day would come when an Inspirations tenor would sing the G above high C? (That is the same note that Mark Trammell Trio tenor Eric Phillips would sing on “Glory Road.”)
- Singing News has announced several new staffers, following the loss of several Boone, NC staffers due to the office transfer to Nashville, TN. Former Gold City bass guitarist Adam Borden will be a marketing consultant. Former McKameys / Segos member Rick Francis will take Kenneth Kirksey’s position handling radio charting. Salem Communications staffer Brent Randall will take Brian Franklin’s place as Online Editor.
