Biography

 
In 1976, Karin Babbitt was a 21-year-old emerging from juvenile deliquency and chronic substance abuse. After a series of miracles she found herself clean and finally free to pursue her dream – to be a standup comic.
   
Karin became a fixture at the Comedy Store in Hollywood throughout the 80’s, working the Main Room with Robin Williams, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Roseanne. Karin went on to play Vegas and do spots for MTV, VH-1, A&E and many network talk shows. She also had the opportunity to write for a number of television sitcoms and pilots and was a guest on numerous radio shows. 
 
By 1992, Karin had two children and a struggling marriage so she decided to mentor young artists as a high school teacher. Standup comedy continues to be the guiding force in her life – here she is free to reveal the raw truth about being a woman in recovery trying to function in a clean world.

Take12Radio.com is a Christian owned and operated Recovery

Talk and Positive Music Internet Radio Station.

 
Monty Meyer. (the Monty’man) is the owner and Executive Producer of K.H.L.T. (K-HALT) Recovery Broadcasting, The Take 12 Recovery Radio Show and Sponsor to Sponsor Recovery Publications
A web site publication that has been serving the recovery community since 1997 Sponsor to Sponsor is where K.H.L.T. was birthed.

 
Working on the Pastoral Staff of Lebanon Foursquare Church and with local drug & alcohol services Monty’s work is primarily with those who have a desire to become whole through the process of recovery.

 
“The Internet is a community all it’s own, and like any community it’s population is filled to the overflowing with hurting and desperate people searching for a way out of drug, alcohol and other addictions. I believe that the only way to experience total recovery from this type of bondage is through accountability, education and a relationship with a power greater than ourselves, GOD.
 
Though there are some who experience a wonderful freedom from active drug and alcohol use without turning their will and their life over to the care of the creator, many of them never completely recover.
If they do it is only through the mercy of the God they have yet to know.

 
It is in the context of the original program of Alcoholics Anonymous, and the direction of a loving God that Take12Radio.com & KHLT Recovery Broadcasting are effective.”
 
The format that Monty uses in all of his Take 12 shows come from deep within his spirit. He desires that all seeking recovery never die behind any type of addiction or alcoholism. But more importantly, Monty’s heart is for the spiritual condition of his fellow man. Though he respects the rights of all people to believe as they will; Monty makes no apologizes for being specific that his Higher Power is Jesus Christ*
 
OUR DESIRE

 
We at KHLT Recovery Broadcasting and Take12Radio.com know that we have more than a partial remedy for the addict and alcoholic. We have the solution in the 12 Steps that guide us to the complete and final answer. A loving God who expresses himself by His complete understanding of His creation, not our limited understanding of Him.
We hope all our shows will point the listener to the final and complete answer to our powerlessness. God.
