Sunday April 20th Christians throughout the world celebrate Easter ...the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches. Sunday morning service times vary, including sunrise services. Contact local churches directly for times and more information.  

Easter is really an entire season of the Christian church year, as opposed to a single-day observance. Lent, the 40-day period leading up to Easter Sunday, is a time of reflection and penance and represents the 40 days that Jesus spent alone in the wilderness before starting his ministry, a time in which Christians believe He survived various temptations. 

The week preceding Easter is called Holy Week and includes Maundy Thursday, which commemorates Jesus' last supper with his disciples; Good Friday, which honors the day of his crucifixion; and Holy Saturday, which focuses on the transition between the crucifixion and resurrection. The 50-day period following Easter Sunday is called Eastertide and includes a celebration of Jesus' ascension into heaven.

In our area, and for most states in America, time "springs forward" at 2AM on Sunday, March 9th as daylight savings time begins for 2014.  

A few quick facts regarding DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME:  

Ben Franklin is considered to be the first person to suggest daylight savings, thinking that it would allow for a better use of daylight.  In 1918 a federal law standardized the yearly start and end of daylight savings time for the states that choose to observe it.  The dates and times of daylight savings have varied over the years.  

Most recently The Energy Policy Act of 2005 mandated an extension of it by one month starting in 2007.  While not embraced by all, surveys show that most people enjoy having an extra hour of light in the evening for eight months of the year.  

Time will" fall back" to standard time on Sunday, November 2nd.  

Remember to set your clocks ahead before going to bed on Saturday night.

WASR has landed the TOP RATED talk radio show from Dennis Miller.  

The DENNIS MILLER SHOW offers a lighter side to political talk radio infused with comedy and sarcasm. It is now one of the most popular radio-talk shows across the country.  

The show features five-time Emmy award winner and four-time Writers' Guild award winner, Dennis Miller, delivering his unique take on the day's topics with comedy and satire. The 3-hour show also features Miller taking listener calls, as well as interviewing high-profile special guests.  

Miller's program includes serious discussions about American culture, current events, politics, and their place in the global context. The show is infused with Miller's sarcasm, which is often characterized by obscure pop culture references.  Most shows feature three guests (one per hour), mostly from the world of politics and entertainment, as well as calls from listeners.  

The DENNIS MILLER SHOW replaces 

Michael Savage is now on WASR.  The NEW  SAVAGE NATION show represents the host’s popularity and tremendous growth in listenership.  The SAVAGE NATION is now one of the TOP TALK SHOWS in America!  WASR is proud to be selected as a radio station to air this program.  The timing for this program availability was great, as Mike Huckabee recently announced that he and his talk show syndicator were not able to come to terms, and he decided that his efforts were better spent in other areas.  Savage Nation is now airing in that time slot, which is WEEKNIGHTS from 7PM  to 10PM.

Michael Savage’s incisive thoughts on politics are augmented by his Defense of American Culture, the Middle Class, Traditional Values and Freedom of Speech. His famous “news, views and reviews” continues to inform and entertain millions of loyal and new listeners nationwide.  Savage is the author of 28 books, including six New York Times bestsellers. He was awarded the coveted Freedom of Speech Award by Talkers Magazine and earned his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. Listen to Michael Savage each weekday on WASR 1420AM or streaming at www.WASR.net
