Joy In The Morning

Rodney Evans brings Gospel Music to WCLK listeners six mornings each week on Joy In The Morning, as he has now for 33 years. This week on The Local Take I talk to Rodney about his Annual Toy Drive.  For the Children supports the campaign Give A Toy, Give A Smile to provide Christmas gifts foster children and homeless children, who may spend the holiday season in a shelter. 

Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is teaming up with Joy In The Morning Host Rodney Evans and For The Children, Incorporated, to collect toys for underprivileged Atlanta-area youth and foster care families now through December 13. When you give a toy, you are helping us provide gifts to Foster Care Children and families in need. To find out ways you can Give A Toy, Give A Smile, visit For The Children, Incorporated by clicking here.

Edwin Hawkins, the four-time Grammy® Award-winning leader of The Edwin Hawkins Singers’ 1969 million-seller, “Oh Happy Day,” died January 15 at his home in the Bay area, after a bout with pancreatic cancer.  He was 74 years old.

Jazz 91.9  recently presented the WCLK Award of Excellence for Outstanding Achievement to Ralph Davis, Assistant Chapter Representative, The Gospel Music Workshop of America (http://www.atlantagmwa.org). Mr. Davis teamed up with Evelyn E. White,  Chapter Representative (Atlanta), to earn the title of ‘Top Fundraisers’ during the inaugural edition of Raise The Praise. The duo raised  nearly $3,500 during their two-hour segment as guest hosts on ‘Joy In The Morning’ with Rodney Evans during our Fall 2017 Membership Campaign.

Hello Atlanta. I want to take a moment to invite you to tune in Sunday Morning to Joy In The Morning on WCLK. This is my first opportunity for Fall 2016 to do my part in helping to raise funds for Atlanta’s favorite gospel music radio station. I'll be joined in studio by Fonda Smith, as well as our volunteers ready to take your phone calls.
