Here are the new shows:
- On Mondays we will feature a show called "Back to Back Monday". We'll be playing two songs back to back by the same artist or the same song by two different artists. Or we might play back to back songs with the word "back" in the title or somewhere in the song. They may even just have a similar theme to the songs. You never know what may be played "Back to Back".
- Then on Tuesday it's "Six Pack Tuesday", six songs in a row by the same artist, Sunny Jim and Gary Seiler will be featured on the first show next week.
- Wednesday should be obvious, it's "Humpday". We'll kick off the show with Bill Cockrell's song "Humpday" from his CD "Aquaholic" and then play some more songs to help you get through the middle of the week.
- Thursday we're playing all requests on the "Blue Plate Special Request Thursday" or "Comedy Thursday". Requests can be made on Facebook or by emailing them to us at email@example.com and we'll play them and mention your dedication on the air the following week. If you want to send us an MP3 file with your dedication we will play it on the air. Email your song requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or we'll play songs that have a comedic theme or twist to them.
- Friday is "TGIF Friday", all fun songs to get you ready for the weekend. We'll kick off each show with a song from the Teddy Bear of Trop Rock John Friday.
If you have any ideas for songs for any of these shows, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you and have you involved. Thanks.
We're also gearing up for another weekly show, "The BeachBum DJ Hour" where you will be the guest BeachBum DJ for the show and will introduce your favorite Trop Rock songs and tell a little story about each song, why it is meaningful to you or maybe an inspirational or funny story about you and the songwriter. If you want to be a BeachBum DJ email us and we will get you on the list. This could be a very loonnnngg list. email@example.com
