Who Knew Wednesday: You can use WHAT to stick a poster to the wall?

The Floss Fix: To hang lightweight artwork that’s not in a heavy frame, there’s no need to buy picture wire. Unwaxed dental floss will do the trick.

Picture This: Hanging a picture? Make it easy by first taping a thumbtack, pointy side out, to the back below the hanging bracket. Perfectly position your picture and they give it a bit of a push into the wall. 

Upright Candles: Do your candles slide around and their holders like a kid wearing his dad’s pants? Wrap the bottom with tape to get the right fit.

Magazine Management: Are magazines messing up your home? Make some decorative and functional magazine holders by cutting cereal boxes at angles and covering them with wrapping paper. Cover some of them with lacquer or decoupage for a durable finish. 

Your Poster Child: If your teenager loves talking posters upon his or her bedroom wall, here’s a great tip to keep the corners hole free. Place a binder clip on each Corner then slip them over nails or thumbtacks. As an added bonus get shiny or colorful binder clips. 

A Great Uses for Old Jewelry: Do you have too many brooches, pin, earrings and necklaces that you never get around to wearing? Repurpose them by turning them into unique magnets that get noticed! Just use wire cutters to cut off the back of earrings and pins and then take pendants off of a necklace and glue a magnet to them on the back.

Question: When slipping curtains over a metal rod, first place a ________ over the metal end. This will help you avoid snagging the curtain so they go on easily.

Answer: Plastic Bag

Huge shout out to Teresa from Mount Vernon who guessed the answer to this question, but then told us to give the tickets to the first Teenage who called in. Elli From Fredericktown called in right after that – Have fun at WinterJam 2020 Elli!

Question: A terrific way to hang posters and your kids room without leaving holes or stains is with ______________. Just put a generous drop on the back of each corner, press it to the wall, and watch it stick

Answer: Toothpaste! White, non -gel to be exact.

Congratulations to Kenna from Mount Vernon who guessed this right on the first try! You have fun at Winter Jam too, Kenna!!!

Praise Thursday: A Teachable Leader Will Never Stop Growing & A Leaders Strength Is On Their Knees

Todd and I started off the show today by reminding you that WinterJam is coming up!

Click HERE for more info on WinterJam 2020!

Here are today’s

A Teachable Leader Will Never Stop Growing

“Go from the presence of a foolish man, when you do not perceive in him the lips of knowledge. The wisdom of the prudent is to understand his way, but the Folly of fools is deceit. Fools mock at sin, but among the upright there is favor.”  – Proverbs 14: 7-9

How long did it take you to realize you do not know everything? When you come to the realization that there is still much for you to learn, you open the door to becoming a lifelong learner. In your Christian Life, God reveals himself when you surrender to his word and the leading of his Spirit. Romans 12:2 encourages you to ” not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  God does not simply want you to try harder or sin less, but also to depend on his spirit and allow yourself to be transformed into someone who loves to through willing obedience. That transformation begins when you choose to become a lifelong learner of God’s word.


A Leader’s Strength is on Their Knees

“Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. ” Jeremiah 33:3

Prayer is a very real part of your relationship with God. It is not just for the special, the religious Elite; it is for you. Throughout the Bible, God promises to speak to you when you humble yourself and listen for His voice. To listen actively, you must come before the Lord expectantly. You must eagerly anticipate him speaking to you. Get into the habit of beginning each day with God in prayer; let His Spirit open your heart and mind to his perfect will. He promises to ” show you Great and Mighty things, but you do not know.”

Our word of the day today was Flackery, a noun which means publicity and promotion; press-agentry.

Game Time Tuesday!

Good Afternoon! I hope you’re having a great Tuesday afternoon! 2017 is getting into full swing and Eddie and I had an awesome show for you today!

We talked a little bit about New Year’s resolutions today on the show, and Eddie talked about his resolution. He said that his goal this year is to have ‘delayed gratification’ and by that he meant that he would get things done that aren’t incredibly exciting with a good attitude that will lead to happiness later. This was quite the profound resolution! Hopefully, everyone here at WNZR sticks to their resolutions this year! To hear about Professor Rinehart and my resolutions, check out the blog from the show yesterday here.

What’s the new year without Winter Jam, right? The WinterJam Tour Spectacular is coming to Ohio three times!
Saturday, January 21st – at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus
Saturday, February 18th – at the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati Sunday,
March 12th – at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland!
If you would like more information and to see the line-up, check out their website, here! 

The song poetry for today was ‘Fix My Eyes‘ from For King and Country!
Eddie gave us these lyrics…
“Here’s what I’d do differently,
I’d love like I’m not scared
Give when it’s not fair
Live life for another
Take time for a brother.”
Congratulations to our winner, Faith from Mt. Vernon!

Our Name that Tune for today was a stumper!!! It will return next week!
Be listening for your chance to win a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley!

Our word of the day today was ‘ennui’ which is an old French word  thar made its’ way onto the scene around 1660-1670.
Ennui is a feeling of utter weariness and discontent resulting from satiety or lack of interest; boredom.
And to use this word in a sentence: “The endless lecture produced an unbearable ennui.”

Have a great evening!
-Lilly & Eddie


Game Time Tuesday – 10/27

Today was a packed full Game Time Tuesday on the Afternoon Drive!

First, we told you all about how you can still register your pastor to win for the last week of Clergy Appreciation Month. Just head over here and tell us why you love your pastor.

We had a round of song poetry using these lyrics:

I wish you never thought you had to go
Wish you never thought you had to leave
Together we can lift each other up
We can build a shelter for the weak

Rob from Fredericktown called in and correctly guessed that those lyrics belong to Tenth Avenue North’s song No Man Is An Island.

We also told you about how you can pick up a doggy goody bag by emailing us a picture of your dog in his/her Halloween costume to You can find out more information on that over here.

And make sure to mark your calendar for WinterJam 2016! The tour will stop in Columbus at the Schottenstein Center on Saturday, January 9th, in Cincinnati at the U.S. Bank Arena on Friday, February 19th, and at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland on Sunday, February 21st.
