RTN Christian AC WJIS (THE JOY FM)/SARASOTA, FL morning show "THE MORNING CRUISE" and SPARROW RECORDS artist MATTHEW WEST recently orchestrated a surprise meeting for two listeners that inspired songs for WEST's newest album "THE STORY OF YOUR LIFE."
From 10,000 fan-submitted stories, WEST chose two from CENTRAL and SOUTHWEST FLORIDA for the final 11 songs on the album. The two FLORIDA residents REBECCA and JOLY were invited to the WJIS studios to hear the songs they inspired debuted live by WEST who was to be "patched in" from NASHVILLE. The women were then surprised as WEST came through the studio door.
"THE MORNING CRUISE" hosts DAVE CRUSE, BILL MARTIN and CARMEN BROWN engineered the moment to capture the songs and the first-hand emotion that went with the stories the women submitted.
