From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


The Case for Christ

Lee Strobel was an atheist. His wife became a Christian, and he was not happy about it. Concerned that his wife’s church of choice is a cult, he set out to disprove her new-found faith. In the process, he turned from being a skeptic to becoming a Christian. He tells the story of his journey of faith to Paul Ladd. Lee’s story is the subject of the new movie The Case for Christ—currently in many theatres. His conversation with Paul will be aired on Your New Life Station on Wednesday, May 3rd, and Sunday, May 7th.

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 Daylight Time (CDT) is five hours behind. When some parts of the world return to standard time for the winter, Eastern Standard Time (EST) is five hours behind UTC, and Central Standard Time (CST) is six 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 use this website www.worldchristian.org or our listener 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. But music artists from all over Europe have found their names on or near the top of international pop charts.

In April, English Hour listeners will hear new music from Anne-Marie, Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato, Halsey, Harry Styles (formerly of One Direction), Machine Gun Kelly featuring Haile Steinfeld, and Zayn Malik (formerly of One Direction).

Souder & Friends

Larry Souder tells Your New Life Station listeners about fascinating people with stories of fun and faith. If you like juicy hamburgers and good conversation—you’ll love Farrell’s Restaurant in Cadiz, Kentucky. Larry Souder takes us there on Souder & Friends. He also introduces us to a gentlemen who restores old pianos.

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.

In April, Bob reviews, for family friendliness, the movie The Promise.

Upcoming Reports for May 2017:

  • Are you more likely to have a heart attack if you have gray hair? Kelly Ann Monahan reports the results of a study.

Reasonable Disagreement http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1298-reasonable-disagreement.html http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1298-reasonable-disagreement.html English: “What’s Going On?” March 2017

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


Reasonable Disagreement

Spring is arriving here in the Northern Hemisphere. Fall is arriving for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere.

The headquarters of World Christian Broadcasting, the parent organization for KNLS-Alaska and Madagascar World Voice—is located in Nashville, in the southeastern region of North America.

During most of January and February, virtually the entire eastern U.S. experienced weather that was much warmer than the 100-year average. Many days this winter—I haven’t been sure whether to wear long or short sleeves.

Do the data prove that Planet Earth is getting warmer? And is there a particular side of the issue that reflects a Christian worldview?

When one reads the Bible, the reader will find that the Bible is silent with regard to 21st Century global climate. And reasonable people will disagree about the ways Christian principles apply to the issue.

From time to time, program segments on KNLS and MWV will address climate change and other issues that call for a response from the scientific or political communities. And the people who address the issues will not always agree with each other.

We provide different ideas so you can decide for yourself about debatable issues. The views you hear expressed on our broadcasts may or may not reflect those of World Christian Broadcasting managers and board members.

Frequency Changes

Broadcast frequencies will change on Sunday, March 26 for both KNLS and Madagascar World Voice. Listen for changes toward the end of the month or consult this website.

Mary and Joseph as Marriage Counselors? http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1297-mary-and-joseph-as-marriage-counselors-.html http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1297-mary-and-joseph-as-marriage-counselors-.html English: “What’s Going On?” February 2017

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


Mary and Joseph as Marriage Counselors?

The mother and earthly father of Jesus probably never intended to have careers as marriage counsellors. But authors Robert and Pamela Crosby say Mary and Joseph became just that—not that they set up an office practice—but that they led by example. The Crosbys point out Bible passages about the parents of Jesus—perhaps overlooked in terms of marriage advice—that show the ways their marriage worked. The authors share their observations with Paul Ladd. The interview will run on Your New Life Station on Sunday, February 12, and Monday, February 20.

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


William F. Buckley, Jr.-Conservative Intellectual

One man pushed a little old lady in front of a bus. Another pushed her out of the way of the bus. It can truthfully be said that both men pushed a little old lady. Yet, one man did evil. The other did good. This is the way conservative intellectual William F. Buckley, Jr. illustrated the fallacy of the idea of “moral equivalence” between the work of the KGB and the CIA.

Some call Buckley “the godfather of American conservatism.” Buckley, who died in 2008, is remembered by Fox News correspondent James Rosen, who authored a book of Buckley’s remembrances titled A Torch Kept Lit. Buckley kept company with the likes of Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, Elvis Presley, John Lennon, and Martin Luther King, Jr.  Rosen is interviewed by Paul Ladd in a two-part series. The series will run on Your New Life Station on January 2 and January 9.

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


It’s Beginning to Sound at Least a Little Like Christmas

In Russia—it’s celebrated on January 7. Countries that follow Christian Orthodox traditions are guided by the older Julian calendar.

In the West, most countries, including the USA, celebrate Christmas on December 25th. And Your New Life Station’s English Hour follows the Western calendar.

Christmas, as long as anyone can remember, has been a mixture of faith and fun. The origins of these traditions are too varied and numerous to cover in this space.

For the 2016 Christmas holiday season, Your New Life Station will carry the best mix of faith (remembering the birth of Jesus Christ) and fun (Santa Claus and gift giving) in our music and feature stories—along with the everyday music and features listeners are accustomed to throughout the year.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will have all Christmas music. The week before Christmas will feature our Advent series of songs during Profiles in Christian Music. And our God’s Money series, which runs on Mondays, will deal with money management during the holiday shopping season. And yes, Santa Claus will make an appearance or two during the month of December on Your New Life Station.

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.

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. When some parts of the world return to standard time for the winter, Eastern Standard Time (EST) is five hours behind UTC, and Central Standard Time (CST) is six 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.

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 December, English Hour listeners will hear new music from Adele, Clean Bandit, Galantis, Jonas Blue, Train, and the Veronicas. And you’ll hear new versions of holiday season favorites from The Pentatonix and Sarah McLachlan.

Souder & Friends

Larry Souder’s offerings for the Christmas holiday season include “Santa’s Workshop,” “Christmas Tree Lady”, and “Christmas Memories”—as well as “New Year’s Walk of Life.”

Kelly Ann Monahan has the latest developments in medicine, science, and computer technology. Paul Ladd provides special reports about diverse topics, religious and secular.

And Bob Waliszewski of Focus on the Family provides Plugged-in reviews of the latest movies, music, and computer games.

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


Can a Christian Succeed in a Highly Visible Career?

They’ve both been successful in their broadcasting careers. Megan Alexander is national correspondent for the long-running TV show Inside Edition. Eric Boling is co-host of the Fox News show The Five. Both are Christians who’ve been successful in highly-visible careers. They’ve worked with colleagues that are not always friendly to Christians and Christian values. Both Megan and Eric speak with Paul Ladd about the ways a Christian can succeed in the workplace. While these interviews don’t address the active physical persecution Christians suffer in some parts of the world—they do offer insight into ways a Christian can win over co-workers and others who are indifferent or unfriendly. And they offer valuable insights for those concerned about the cost of being or becoming a Christian.

Paul’s three-part interview with Eric Boling will run on three consecutive Mondays, starting November 14. The three-part interview with Megan Alexander will be part of our First Person series. It will run on three consecutive Wednesdays starting November 30.

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


Hillbilly Elegy

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.

Holocaust Survivor

What’s it like to be removed from your home, put on a train, and taken to a prison camp with horrendous conditions—where you await your time to die?

Ernie Gross—who now lives in the U.S.—can answer those questions because it happened to him when he was a teenager.

khtan@worldchristian.org (KNLS) What's Going On? Wed, 03 Aug 2016 06:00:00 +0000
Summer Travel Season http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1289-summer-travel-season.html http://www.knls.org/whats-going-on/1289-summer-travel-season.html English: “What’s Going On?” July 2016

From Rob Scobey, Senior Producer for International English


Summer Travel Season

July is generally the heart of the travel season in the Northern Hemisphere—especially in Europe and North America. By the day the U.S. celebrates its independence, July 4th, tourist attractions and points of interest are quite busy. As part of the summer season, Paul Ladd will take Your New Life Station’s listeners to Philadelphia and to Branson, Missouri.

In Philly—listeners will visit the place where artists learn how to tap into their abilities. Paul takes us to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the oldest art school in the U.S., on July 3rd, 10th, and 17th.

In Branson, we hear the sounds of a stage show the makes the Bible come to life. The world-class production is called Moses. And it’s about the leader of the early Israelite nation. The show Moses runs in Branson through October. Your New Life Station’s listeners can hear about it and other shows produced by Sight & Sound productions on July 4th, 11th, and 18th.

The feature stories from Philadelphia and Branson are part of Your New Life Station’s American Highway series.

The Pacific Rim and Southwest Asia

The Pacific Rim and 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 six hours ahead. And Tokyo is seven hours ahead of UTC.

You can also use this website or our listener 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 June, English Hour listeners will hear new music from Clean Bandit featuring Louisa Johnson, David Guetta featuring Zara Larsson, Daya, Galantis, Jennifer Lopez, and Shawn Mendes.

Souder & Friends

It may bring a smile or it may bring a tear. Award-winning videographer Larry Souder continues his series of fascinating people and interesting places. He brings them to radio for Your New Life Station with his series Souder & Friends. On July 21st, Larry will remember the life and career of Muhammad Ali.
