Radio programmers, on air personalities and other members of the media from around the country congregated in Memphis, Tenn., last weekend for the 2016 Country Cares for St. Jude radio seminar. It's an annual event to show radio stations the latest research, technology and information that can be used during each annual radiothon to help raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The Gathering of Authors is happening this Saturday, November 21, 2015 at the Texarkana Arkansas Convention Center from 10 am - 4 pm. One of those authors is John T. Wayne, grandson of famous actor John Wayne.
My buddy Neil Jones is a huge supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Every year, Neil rounds up the troops (friends) and heads out on the open road for the Talimena Motorcycle Rally. This year, the run is scheduled for May 21-24.

Texarkana and the surrounding area is full of good people. Listeners called in to make donations to our "Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon" and raised $88,620 to help save the lives of children with Cancer.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is an amazing place where miracle really do happen. Research and treatments developed at St. Jude have raised the survival rates of childhood cancers from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since opening its doors in 1962.
Carrie ForemanThis morning, Jim and I had the opportunity to talk with Carrie Foreman of Horatio, Ark. She and her son, John, came to our St. Jude Radiothon last year to talk about their experience at St. Jude. John, who will turn three next month, lost an eye due to cancer and now has a prosthetic one in its place. This year Carrie, John, and his twin brother Matthew are at St. Jude for John's scheduled check up.
