For the Love of Kids, GNA will Sound ‘Different’ for a Few Days
Beginning tomorrow morning just after 6 AM, and running through Friday until about 7 PM, GNA, the radio station that you know - and love - will sound a little bit different.
You'll still hear the same great music from the country stars you love, and yes, Chrissy and I will still be on the air (sorry about that) and our guy Matty Jeff will still drive you home in the afternoon.
But the versions of the music (or "story songs" as we call them) you'll hear on GNA over the next few days will contain audio clips - and the songs will take on a life form of their own.
Some of these story songs will lift your spirits, and others about the loss of the child will crush you.
So be warned, for the next few days during our 18th St. Jude Radiothon, GNA will definitely sound a little bit different.
You'll hear stories from desperate parents whose kids were stricken with cancer and sadly didn't make it.
You'll hear me, Chrissy, or Matty on-air, and at times so overcome with emotion that it becomes difficult to complete sentences.
You’re also going hear from the country stars themselves, as they share their stories about the wonderful work at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. And you'll hear from doctors and scientists about advances and cures.
But, none of that matters, unless we hear from you.
The parents who stay up at night with a sick kid by their side fighting back tears. They need to hear from you.
Sick kids are in the hospital waiting on a miracle, and they need to hear from you.
Last year, thanks to "GNAtion" generosity, we were able to raise over $193,000 that goes directly toward fighting kids' cancer and saving lives so bear with us - we need more of that this year.
We need to hear from YOU!
