CHRISTIAN AUTHOR PAUL HATALSKY ON THE RON KING SHOW
Hi Folks! Well, we've changed things up a bit this time around on the Ron King Show. Ordinarily, we feature Christian singers and bands on our podcast, but on this episode of the Ron King Show we are featuring the brand new, first time published, Christian book author Paul Hatalsky from Houston, PA. The title of Paul's book, co-authored with his wife Kathy, is "Life's Little Tidbits." In his book, Paul takes mundane every day occurrences in his life and, in a very interesting manner, is able to equate these occurrences with just the right scripture verse to teach and enlighten the reader. Even though this is Paul's first book we find it to be entertaining and thought provoking . If you are a writer, or if you've just thought about writing a book someday you'll probably enjoy listening to this podcast. I hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as I enjoyed producing it. Blessings! Ron King .
PASTOR MITCH WALL ON THE RON KING SHOW
Christian/Country musician and pastor Mitch Wall from Fayette City, PA is our guest on this episode of the Ron King Show. Mitch tells an interesting story about how he started out playing country songs in bars and clubs, eventually got saved at a Billy Graham Crusade in the old Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, PA, started bible school and years later felt the Lord's call to become a Baptist pastor. In addition to being a fine preacher, Mitch is also a really good guitarist, singer and songwriter. On this episode of the Ron King Show you'll get to hear a fun song that Mitch wrote and recorded called, "Honk If You Love Jesus." I am sure that many Christian musicians who listen to this podcast we'll be able to relate to singing and playing in bars and then getting saved and turning their lives, and their music, over to the Lord. I hope you enjoy the podcast, I enjoyed producing it! Blessings, Ron King .
JONELLA WILLIAMSON OF THE DAUGHTERS OF GRACE ON THE RON KING SHOW.
Christian musician and singer and previous Coal Queen, Miss Rain Day and Mrs.Pennsylvania Globe; from Greene County, PA, Jonella Williamson, is our guest on this edition of the Ron King Show. Jonella talks about how interesting and fun it was to hold those pageant titles back when and also discusses her music ministry through the years. In addition, Jonella chats about putting together a couple of community choirs that lasted several years, most notably the Daughters Of Grace, also know quite fondly in the Greene County area as the "DOGS " which stayed together for over 15 years. On this edition of the Ron King show you also get to hear how wonderful Jonella's voice is as she sings a lovely Christian song called "Grace." Jonella has a great personality and we were able to produce a fun and very informative podcast about Jonella's journey through life and the unfolding of her music ministry. I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I did producing it. Blessings! Ron King.
ROBYN WELLS OF HEART & SOUL ON THE RON KING SHOW
As folks who know me are aware, I love Country Gospel Music. And I'm always thrilled when I find a new artist who is deserving of some recognition. One of those artists I had the pleasure of meeting recently. Her name is Robyn Wells, she lives in Waynesburg, Pennsylvania with her family and fronts a country/gospel group called Heart & Soul. Robyn was born in West Virginia and lives on a farm with some horses, a donkey, a bunch of dogs and some cats; she is genuine country through and through and loves the Lord and her family with all her heart. The members of Heart & Soul include Robyn's daughter Rachel ,who plays bass and sings harmony vocals; Robyn's husband Allen, who plays lead guitar; Robyn's cute little grand-daughter Savannah, who provides percussion and sometimes Robyn's son, Shane, who can play a multitude of instruments--and all of them quite well! On this episode of the Ron King Show Robyn talks about her early days on the road with her daughter Rachel singing her original gospel songs and making and selling her own CD's; and, of course, she talks about her family and her faith. We also manage to work in some of Robyn's music on the show so you can hear just how good a singer she really is. I really enjoyed the interview with Robyn Wells and I hope you will too! Blessings, Ron King .
JUSTIN HARTZELL ON THE RON KING SHOW
Justin Hartzell, a hip-hop Christian music artist and ordained minister from Washington, PA is our guest on this edition of the Ron King Show. This conversation is particularly interesting to Christian, and even secular, music artists because it offers a behind- the- scenes look at a Christian music genre that that is rarely talked about and is often misunderstood; especially by the Church. On this show, Justin answers some tough questions such as: How does the Church view Christian hip-hop music? Is there any difference between hip-hop and rap music? How do you reconcile being a hip-hop artist with being an ordained minister and what do you think will be the future of Christian, and even secular, music after the Covid 19 pandemic is over? So, join us for this very interesting interview. Christian hip-hop may not be your particular cup of tea as far as Christian music goes but you will see that, for the type of music Justin does, he does it extremely well; Justin is a very talented artist! I hope you like it! Blessings! Ron King .
