Luke Bryan, Thompson Square and Florida Georgia Line will be joining radio station WQHK, K105-FM, from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday during the station's two-day radiothon for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.The Country Cares for St. Jude Kids radiothon will run from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday. The station will suspend a lot of its regular programming and will play stories about people who have had an experience at St. Jude. The hospital's mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases through research and treatment.

Dave Michaels, K105's operations manager, said the station will take any donations for St. Jude, but will encourage donors to become Partners in Hope for a pledge of $20 a month.

About 400 country radio stations do these radiothons, Michaels said. The money raised goes to help the families with children at St. Jude.

This is K105's sixth annual St. Jude radiothon, and so far the station has raised more than $250,000 for the hospital, Michaels said.

To make a donation, go to www.k105fm.com or call 1-800-942-8741 Thursday or Friday. Volunteers will be at the station answering phones.
