Sabrina Smith navigated Roswell’s back roads on autopilot, barely aware of the turns she was taking, as she made her way home from a late night at the clinic. The special of the night was a Great Dane with bloat, touch-and-go all day long. Sometime after midnight, the dog turned a corner. Her breathing grew easy, and she drifted into a comfortable sleep. This late at night, a comfortable sleep was probably not happening for Sabrina. Not with surgery at seven a.m.
She fumbled with the radio and tuned in to WOBN, 89.3 FM “God’s Country.” The station pumped the airwaves with commercial-free, Christian-themed programming by mainstream country icons. Sabrina hadn’t been a regular churchgoer since the ninth grade, but she figured she and Jesus were still on friendly terms, and the station was her favorite for late-night, stay-awake-without-getting-a-headache, driving home tunes.
