Special Guests

  • Larry Norman — The Godfather of Christian Rock has Died
    As a result of the recent death of Larry Norman on Sunday February 24th 2008, we will re-broadcast the ENTIRE two hour interview with one of Drew's greatest spiritual influences - Part 1, Saturday March 1st 2008 / Part 2, Saturday March 8th, 2008! Welcome home Larry... Well done mate!

    PART TWO - ORIGINALLY AIRED MAY 2005 - For the first time ever... The Godfather of the Christian Rock Movement gives a rare 2 hour interview! With songs like The Outlaw, I Wish We'd All Been Ready, U.F.O., and Why Don't You Look Into Jesus, Larry Norman forged ahead against the ultra-conservative church culture of the 50s & 60s, which wanted nothing to do with his so called "demon music." Larry was one of the forefathers of what we now know as "The Jesus Movement." Surviving years of countless rumours and gossip, Larry has become an icon in the Christian music world, having opened for Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, The Byrds, and The Grateful Dead.

  • Larry Norman Tribute - Part 2
    We've recently lost one of the most influential recording artists ever. Larry Norman, a pioneer of Christian rock, has died at age 60. Norman's first solo record - the 1969 release Upon This Rock - is considered the first Christian rock album. Today we'll hear from two others - Darryl Mansfield and Woody Woodland from Life 100.3 in Barrie - as we pay tribute to a man who had a major impact on Drew's own spiritual journey.

  • Gary Smalley — Author of A Time To Mend
    Money is the number one reason why couples fight. Dr. Gary Smalley is one of the country's best-known Christian authors and speakers on relationships, and feels that now is time to talk about financial matters - and it takes two to tango. What most couples don't realize, is that money is not what they are fighting about, but rather the emotional buttons they hit while arguing about money. His new book, A Time to Mend, shows how couples can work through even the toughest issues to save their marriage. Smalley has been a guest on Oprah, Larry King Live, Extra and the Today Show. He is the author and co-author of 28 best-selling, award-winning titles including the popular relationship books, The DNA of Relationships, If Only He Knew and For Better or For Best. Smalley holds a doctorate in clinical psychology and master's in counselling psychology and clinical psychology.

  • Kent Austin — Former CFL Player & Coach
    Kent and his wife Shelley join us to talk about their faith and life in pro football. After being fired as offensive coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts, Kent was recently named the CFL's Coach Of The Year for leading the Saskatchewan Roughriders to the Grey Cup. Now Kent has just been hired as the offensive coordinator at the University of Mississippi, his alma mater. Quite a journey for this former CFL quarterback. So where does faith fit into all of this and what toll does this lifestyle have on his family?


  • Justin Peters
    Justin visited faith healers as a teenager, hoping to be healed himself of Cerebral Palsy, but his hopes were unfulfilled. While attending Bible College, his Master's thesis was an examination of the life and ministry of Benny Hinn. As research for his thesis, Justin attended several Benny Hinn Crusades. However, his requests for interviews with Benny Hinn were denied. His story was featured during the CBC's Fifth Estate expose on Benny Hinn.

Talkback, etc.

  • What do you and your spouse argue about the most? Sex? Money? Kids? Household responsibilities? Should Christian couples even fight at all?
    Some couples claim that they've never had a fight while others see arguments as a very normal part of marriage. Is there really anything wrong with a good healthy fight every once in a while? What's the most common disagreement in your marriage?

  • Is there something wrong with churches offering free product to get people to come to church?
    We have found at least three churches holding raffles in order to increase attendance. One church is giving away a car, one a flat screen TV, and yet another is offering you the chance to win a motorcycle. Is this any different than holding a BBQ after church with the hopes that someone new might come? What about advertising the fact that your church serves free coffee & doughnuts? Sure, the rewards for attending are different but does the end really justify the means?
