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. Years ago I had been very religious and prayed a sinner's prayer but never understood true salvation comes by faith alone in Jesus Christ. I bought a Bible and started reading.

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.

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

A London liquor store robber was arrested after the boxer shorts he was using to disguise his face slipped off during a struggle with a store clerk.  The thief fled the store but video of the thief's face, after the underpants fell off his face, helped police to identify and arrest him.


This is Officer Hancock. Be careful. There are a lot of wackos out there!

The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!
A Polish construction worker  laid down for a nap in the back of his car - and woke to find he'd been reported to police as an abandoned body. The man was taking a break from a building site in Poznan, when his bare chested snooze caught the eye of horrified passers-by. The next thing he knew police and paramedics were trying to tear the door off his car. Needless to say he woke up from his nap terrified. The man said he often takes a lunchtime nap.
