We're excited to be here at Star 105.7. If we're new to you, thanks for giving us a chance to wake you up. If you're new to Star 105.7, welcome! We promise to deliver the show you've grown to love with fun and encouragement. We consider this a HUGE 'salt and light' opportunity.
For those of you that are just trying us out, feel free to drop an email to us or give us a call at 458-1057. Our show is designed for your whole family to enjoy--you'll never hear anything that you'll have to "explain" to your kids...its clean, wholesome fun...with the information you need...and the music you LOVE from Star 105.7!
One of the ways we do this, is by encouraging you to "Think Outside Yourself"...TOY. Have you ever considered paying for the person behind you in line at the drive-thru? We started this many years ago in West Michigan after a call from a woman named Lisa told us how one of our listeners made her day by doing it. We decided to set up special days throughout the year when all of West Michigan did this on the same day. What a HUGE impact! If you've never tried it, give it a shot! You can make someone's day! There are many more ways you can TOY to encourage others. Can you imagine how West Michigan could change if we all did that more?
If you questioned our move to Star 105.7, check this out.
Here's a pretty cool devotion that was written about our transition to STAR 105.7.
Above all, your voice is heard and you direct our show. Do you have a thought or comment? Would you like for us to host your event? Even a prayer request. Feel free to get in touch with us today. We are just experiencing life with you as a community bonded together with similar experiences creating many memorable moments.

My mom's (her mom's) Southern Green Beans!
4-5 chopped slices of bacon
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 lbs of washed, snapped green beans
2 cups water (or chicken broth)
1 TBLS salt
1 TBLS sugar
1/2-1 tsp black pepper
8-10 small scrubbed red) potatoes
1 stick of butter
Put 4-5 chopped slices of bacon in a cast iron skillet and saute' with about 1/2 cup chopped onion over medium heat until bacon is lightly brown and onion is translucent. Toss in about 3 lbs of washed, snapped green beans ( I like to leave them whole with ends removed) into the pot stirring them with a wooden spoon to coat well with bacon fat. Add water (or chicken broth), salt, sugar and pepper. Cook over medium heat, tightly covered for about 30 minutes or until beans are about 1/2 done. At the end of 30 minutes add the potatoes and more (1/2 cup) water or broth if needed. Cook, covered for an additional 25-20 minutes, periodically checking the pot to make sure a small amount of liquid remains. When the potatoes are tender, tilt the lid slightly, off the side of the pot, and continue cooking, add 1 stick of butter and taste to see if more salt and pepper are needed. Beans and potatoes should be tender but not mushy.
