Why I Gave Up Being a Talk Radio Show Host

Originally Posted June 17, 2009 Recently, a friend of mine encouraged me to get into talk radio. So I tried. Once and only once. Never before, never again. It was a first-class disaster. This isn’t the whole show, but it’s the first phone call I got that night. . . and the last. Click the link below and listen to the hot-boiling phone call from a disgruntled caller.

An Invitation to Binge!

Here’s a recent email I received by someone who is in his early 30s that sparked the idea for this blog post: “Frank, just want you to know that your podcast is changing my life. I’ve binged on all 100+ episodes and they are amazing! I love the variety, the humor, and the different types of music in the beginning. My only regret is that I wish I would have known about it several years ago when I was going… Read more

Why I’m Still an Evangelical, But Beyond …

“Be careful to do as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.”  ~ Deuteronomy 5:32 Ever since I met the Lord some 30 years ago, I’ve been an evangelical. However, the term today has become so cluttered and muddied, and the “evangelical movement” has become so diluted and diverse, that it requires both definition and explanation. Back in 2012, I coined the term “beyond evangelical” which best… Read more

Open Up the Creator’s Toy Chest

In the beginning, there was nothing at all. Nothing was short and nothing was tall. Nothing was big and nothing was small. In the beginning, there was nothing at all. God created us to enjoy and learn from stories, even from a young age. The Creator’s Toy Chest children’s book series brings beloved Bible stories to life for young children with vivid illustrations, youthful characters, and rhyming text perfect for reading aloud.

Love him or loathe him, Donald Trump is a force of nature. Whatever can be said of him either negative or positive, the man is dramatic. Especially during interviews.

Then, my blog subscribers voted him in to have a full and exclusive interview with me in studio. And on… Read more

In fact, reciprocity in friendship stems from the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. If you want to be asked… Read more

My Last Podcast Episode & HT to Jon Stewart

Well, boys and girls, I ended my “Christ is ALL” podcast. I explain why and what has replaced the podcast on the 125th episode of the show, the final episode. (Moment of silence.) Interestingly, Jon Stewart ended his show a few days before I ended my podcast. I won’t write the “great minds” line here, but the word on the street is that Stewart heard a rumor that I was ending my show, and well, [fill in the blank]. Cough. If you’re… Read more
