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.

1 3-4 pound Chuck Roast
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 whole Onion
6 whole Carrots (or 12 mini carrots)
Kosher Salt To Taste
Pepper To Taste
1 cup Beef Broth
2 cups To 3 Cups Beef Stock
3 sprigs Fresh Thyme (I used flakes)
3 sprigs Fresh Rosemary (I used flakes)
First and foremost, choose a nicely marbled piece of meat. This will enhance the flavor of your pot roast like nothing else. Generously salt and pepper your chuck roast.
Heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Then add 2 to 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
Cut onion in half and cut 6 to 8 carrots into 2-inch slices (you can peel them, but you don’t have to). When the oil in the pot is very hot (but not smoking), add in the halved onion, browning on one side and then the other. Remove the onion to a plate.
Throw the carrots into the same very hot pan and toss them around a bit until slightly browned, about a minute or so.
If needed, add a bit more olive oil to the very hot pan. Place the meat in the pan and sear it for about a minute on all sides until it is nice and brown all over. Put the roast in the crock pot.
With the burner still on high, use beef broth to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom with a whisk to get all of that wonderful flavor up.
When the bottom of the pan is sufficiently deglazed, pour the liquid over the roast. Add enough beef stock to cover the meat halfway. Add in the onion and the carrots, as well as 3 or 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary and about 3 sprigs of fresh thyme. (I actually sprinkled the flaked spices into the pan as I was deglazing and kind of cooked it with the juice)
Put the lid on, with the crock-pot on low, cook for about 4 hours or until meat can be pulled apart with a fork. (all crock pots vary...you know yours by now!)
