Hi there and welcome to my radio show blog. I'm glad you are here and hope you will find something useful.

I'm a 72 year old radio broadcaster who found great peace in his old age in the forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers to sinners.

When I was working at a radio station in Fort Dodge, Iowa, God started to get my attention.

One day when I was driving back to Missouri to spend a weekend there at my home, I saw a sign on a farm pasture North of Indianola. It said "Prepare to meet thy God." I was 62 years old at the time and thinking of my mortality, and decided to try and get things right with God. Of course, I learned, only Jesus makes us right with God. But that sign got my attention.

God showed me that Christ took the punishment for all my sins. Nothing I could do could make me right before God. As a matter of fact He showed me my own righteousness was as filthy rags and useless. Only He could save me and make me acceptable in His presence by clothing me with the righteousness of Christ.

November 19, 2006 was the day God led me to pray and put faith in what Jesus Christ had done on the Cross as my only hope for salvation. He was God's sacrifice for my sins. He alone could make me acceptable before God the Father.

So here I am today sharing this Good News with you. Do you need forgiveness of sins? Go to Jesus. Do you need your broken heart to be healed? Go to Jesus. Are you held prisoner by certain sins? Go to Jesus and He will set you free. He has done it for me and I know He will do it for you.

Rich's Joke Of The Day:

Visiting the modern art museum, a lady turned to an attendant standing nearby.

“This,” she said, “I suppose, is one of those hideous representations you call modern art?” “No, madam,” replied the attendant. “That one’s called a mirror.”

Rich's Crazy News Story Of The Day:
A Canadian woman who opened a can of green beans to find a blanched grasshopper staring at her says she's swearing off generic, no-name products.  The woman was  preparing Sunday dinner for her family in Winnipeg, Manitoba, when she opened the can and was taken aback. She complained to the canning company and was told grasshoppers live in bean fields and are the same color as the beans. The processing plant uses a red laser to scan beans for foreign objects, but sometimes they slip through.

The Wacky World of Crime With Officer Hancock's police blotter:


Tennessee police are apologizing after arresting a man for using a $50 bill they thought was fake but that turned out to be real. Police in Shelbyville thought the bill was counterfeit after a convenience store clerk called them. The clerk said a marker used to detect false money didn't show the bill was real. But a police evidence technician said that some old bills don't react to the markers. So police gave the money to two banks to check, and they said it was real but just very old. The suspect was released from jail and police apologized to him. 



This is Officer Hancock. Be careful. Sometimes it is easier to use your debit card!

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!
If you've ever wanted to chill with one of the world's richest men, this may be your best chance. Virgin Airlines announced it is now offering "Little Richard" ice cubes resembling Virgin Group head Richard Branson on all Virgin Atlantic flights. But even just toasting with Branson ice cubes won't come cheap; you'll have to fly as an "Upper Class" passenger to have access to the cubes. Virgin claims that the creation of the cubes required a team of four designers a "painstaking" six weeks to craft, using "laser scanning technology" to match the likeness of his face.
