8. "Downer of a Sister" Spinning on 30 Stations

"Downer of a Sister," the third single just released from our "Adam Up" CD, is now spinning on 30 stations. Since the song is a parody of a very hard-rocking song (System of a Down's "Chop Suey") , we know it's the type of song only certain radio stations are going to play. However, we really love the story line and the humor content, and we can't wait for you to see the accompanying video as soon as it's done. Here's a list of the stations already playing the song:

CFJU, FREEROCK1.NET, KBNJ, KEFX / THE EFFECT NETWORK, KGOT, KHCA, KMOD, KRBW, KRKS, KSNS, TETELESTAI RADIO.COM, THE EDGE RADIO / MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, TRUE LIFE RADIO.COM, WAJS, WCNI, WCVK, WFHB, WGCF, WILV, WITR, WMUL, WNCM, WQME, WRGX, WRXV, WVCP, WVMM, WVOF, WWIB, WZFR / WRHX

If you listen to one of these stations, please let 'em know you're glad they're playing ApologetiX. If you'd like to hear "Downer of Sister" on your local Christian rock station, please let 'em know!



9. Prayer Requests

Please pray for Beth Behanna, the daughter of our dear friend and former drummer, Fred Behanna, who has had numerous battles with Hodgkins Disease. Fred just got the results of Beth's scans and she has relapsed again. The Hodgkins has returned "same place as always - liver and spleen," he says. Please pray for healing and hope for Beth and for strength for Fred. If you'd like to email Fred, his email address is fred@apologetix.com.



Apologetically,

J.
