I came out of a 23+ year marriage that was very, very abusive. I didn’t know what to do or how to get out. One of the first songs that gave me strength was “Fear is a Liar.” When you’re that vulnerable, you want to go back. Every song you play feeds me and gets…

THIS is Who I Am

I was really depressed and going to counseling to try to work all that out. When you’re depressed you kinda question who you are and why you’re around and why things happen. You kinda go, “Who am I in all of this thing called life?” When I was on the way to counseling, that song…

I lean on the station often. I got diagnosed with cancer. I know what you’re supposed to do: trust in your faith; trust in God. All those things. But this has been the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with. The absolute hardest. I switched over to WCIC because I needed it. – Matt from Downs

Bullying

Going to school wasn’t easy because of bullying – not physical contact but a lot of harsh words and stuff like that. I like Jordan Feliz and the song Beloved. It just tells me how God appreciates me, that I am not forgotten, and that God knows me and loves me very much. – Tiden
