RUBY BABY

clgradma2Ruby kicks off the Renegade Radio broadcast week with the Sunday Drive – a program that features Christian Contemporary music from the 70s and 80s.

Some of the songs on the Sunday Drive were never before heard on radio before Renegade came to life in 1997, because, when they were released, no radio stations played Christian Contemporary music. If you are an “older person” (over 25) you will enjoy the Sunday Drive for sure. You can hear Ruby and Renegade’s suitcase full of CDs and 33s on Sunday morning from 6:00 to 11:00.

TOC & CANDY RADIO SHOW.

MARITAL BLISS AND HIP HOP TOO !

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SUNDAY evenings, Hip Hop artist Toc Roc; 600 PM to MIDNIGHT. Listen if you have ears to hear.

The Lord has given me a heart and passion for the lost and forgotten. A desire to see lost youth delivered into new life through Jesus Christ. Before knowing Christ as “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), I was spiritually dead and desperate for change. I wasn’t really an approachable person, but a faithful Christ follower came up to me and shared with me the Good News. That day, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and into my life. I believe that the Lord has a destiny for each and every one of His children. Don’t be afraid to leap wholeheartedly into His divine plan and calling for your life! Sometimes, ministering to troubled teens is intimidating, but seeing them change through the love of Christ exemplified in me is truly amazing. I continue to share the Gospel so that the lost can be found, saved and redeemed just as I was.

Our mission is to reach any one in our community and teach them about God. Our kids are constantly being exposed to secular music where it teaches them to bring chaos and destruction in their lives. Why not speak life into them. Why not give them music where they will be filled with the Good News. People love music. Holy Hip Hop is an alternative to the secular version. instead of death, there can be life.

GENERAL MANAGER FR. KARRY General Manager Fr. Karry

The Boss (aka Fr. Karry Crites) was told by the Newsboys that the reason no one showed up for the Newsboys concert in Reno was because there was no radio station in town that played their music. Hey! no problem … all we need to do is start up a radio station (no one told him at first that radio stations can cost millions of dollars and have constant operating costs).
Nonetheless, Fr. Karry was inspired to start Renegade Radio. In the daytime he is a hospice chaplain and also provides grief support for youth and adults. He is pastor of a church in north Reno called “Little Church in the Valley.”
