Just a few things that may be on your listener’s mind TODAY!
Crowder’s Milk & Honey album released this summer. We recorded fresh interview audio that you can use in your show here! Here’s this week’s freebie.
Crowder shares about typical summer days in high school, his new songs, how he lived in the house where Dr Pepper was invented, and how he never participated in orchestra or choir in school.
The ninjas at Creative Cardio specialize in idea starters! $40 gets you into thousands of prep ideas here!
We have a forum full of good news stories. We have dry artist audio you can use like interviews to add artist texture to your show. In addition we have fresh questions to build call in discussions. We have faith discussion starters, spiritual encouragement angles, and dry calls from listeners you can use to start a call/text discussion in your show! We send out a very looooong email full of showprep angles every week too.
In addition we have a Member’s Only Facebook Group where we post TONS of idea starters & showprep angles each day. (that’s totally different than our public Facebook page where you might find a few free showprep ideas. We guarantee you’ll find fresh ideas to use in your show today, if you try CreativeCardio.com! – Scott Herrold & Jayar Reeves
Let’s rethink the way we do news on our show. Let’s start by investing in storytelling. Rather than give breaking information, let’s tell better stories. News can be divisive, but stories can be encouraging. News can divide and stories can bring listeners together. News has victims and stories have characters who overcome adversity.
If we do anything that is reoccurring on our show, we should have a well through out strategy for it. I think the key to making news connect is embracing your listener’s point of view . We’re not investigative reporters. We are personalities. Let’s use our strength as a way to tell better stories.
Are we doing news as a topic starter? Are we doing news to connect with trending/what’s on our listeners mind this morning?
Are we doing news to share a local point of view?
Are we sharing news from a Christian point of view?
Are we sharing news in order to be a breaking news source?
Are we sharing news as a source of faith stories?
Are we a consistent good news source to the encouragement that our listeners are hoping we can be? -Scott
The song Forgiven from Crowder explains the personal nature of the Resurrection in a powerful way.
Take a minute and think about the power inside the words you’re playing in your songs today.
Here’s a neat walk through Holy Week that might give you some rich content ideas. Use your storytelling skills! Think about the characters, the setting and the conflict in this story! Shine your camera angles in some new places with these stories!
“Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”
― C.S. Lewis
