PROVO It's only 90 seconds of national recognition, not the 15 minutes of fame that American artist Andy Warhol coined in 1968, but it's still enough to satisfy guitarist Quint Randle and lead vocalist Jeff Hinton of the local band Joshua Creek at least for now.
Friday morning, a minute and a half of the one of the band's Christmas songs will be featured on the highest-rated daytime drama, "The Young and the Restless."
"A minute and a half is kind of a long time on a national stage," said Randle.
"But will it be in the faint background or in a cool, artistic place where the lyrics will mean something in the show? That's the big question right now."
The 7-year-old band boasts two records, the last released in August, and several features in mostly local religious films.
As exciting as it is to get a piece of the national stage, Randle hesitates to celebrate an artistic victory before he actually hears the lyrics of his band's song. He remembers many films burying his past songs in the background.
"So much so that I could barely hear it," he said laughing. "But either way, though, it's cool. Even if it is way in the background somewhere."
The Christian-themed song, also co-written by Deana Hinton, soon to be featured on the soap opera is called "Everything I Need." It narrates a little girl's journey to visit Santa Claus but ends up at the manger scene.
"What's amazing is that I never dreamed a soap would use something with a religious theme," said the song's publisher, Justin Wilde, Los Angeles."The Young and the Restless" airs at 10 a.m. on KUTV-2.
