Fridays WTHU Praises God Itís Friday at
By: Donna Betteridge

July 28, 2008, Thurmont, MD.WTHU 1450am now has the popular variety show PGIF (Praise God It’s Friday) with the original hosts – Donna and Michael running Fridays from 7-9pm.If you had been listening to local Christian radio, you know that PGIF had become one of the most popular shows on the now defunct station WJTM, Braddock Heights. ††It has been over four years since that show last aired in February 2004, yet shopping or eating out can be a surprise for Donna & Michael, who are still being recognized by fans.

WTHU’s PGIF is in the same format in which listeners enjoyed, a variety in music and substance: music, bible quiz with prizes, humor, wacky tips, gardening, newsy items, maybe a recipe, local Christian artists performing live from the studio, to name a few and the hosts’ playful repartee.

PGIF’s first in-studio unplugged artists are Jon and Carrie Lewis.Jon and Carrie Lewis bring a special quality to their music.They met at a Baptist Bible College in the Poconos.They started making music together almost instantly.The way their voices blend together augments their original collaborations in an almost magical way.Their immediate audience these days is their many weeks’ old son who immediately quiets as his mother holds him and sings.We saw that in the studio as they played unplugged live in-concert at WTHU’s studios recently.They are lyrical, soft, punching, funky and so much more, always melodic.Jon grew up rock guitar in his heart and Carrie - always classical piano.They fill in the other’s musical phrasings in unique ways.Whether you hear them “unplugged” or “plugged” they leave you wanting so much more than just their two CDs to carry home.

WTHU had such a response from listeners and fans to hear more, their show will be reprised August 8th at 7pm on WTHU 1450am.If you missed it the first time for WTHU’s first in-studio concert, you’ll be able to hear the show in its entirety on August 8.


You can go to the Lewis’ website http://www.jonandcarrielewis.com/to learn more about them.

They have a current schedule on their myspace website: http://www.myspace.com/jonandcarrie
