Calling all local bands, singers, and songwriters.

Are you in a local band, singer, or songwriter? If so, we need you!

If you weren’t aware, Amarillo’s Country 97.9 KGNCFM is your hometown St. Jude radio station. Each year we have a two day radio-thon where we ask our loyal listeners to help save lives at St. Jude Children’s research hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. I had the opportunity to go to St. Jude back in January and it was truly a life changing experience. This was the first time I have had the privilege of visiting St. Jude, and I certainly hope it’s not the last.

In addition to our yearly radio-thon, we’re constantly trying to find new ways to educate the public about the wonderful things St. Jude does for local families in the Texas, Panhandle. One of the biggest reasons we hear folks not helping out is that they don’t believe their dollars do anything locally. To set the record strait, there are children living in Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle who are alive today because of St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

So here’s what we’re going to do:
