Hey BeachBums,

*** CONGRATULATIONS to Cindy Garrish of Delaware Again for winning the contest and being our OFFICIAL BEACHBUM of the MONTH for the second month in a row. She will do another show as she takes over the BeachFront airwaves for an hour. Her show will be aired sometime during the month of September. She'll tell more stories about her Trop Rock experiences and play some really cool Trop Rock songs to go with them. See below on how YOU TOO can be the next BeachBum DJ for an hour.


KEEP Trying, the next BeachBum contest show will be aired Saturday, Sept. 24 between Noon and 4 PM. Good Luck.

 The next BeachBum of the month will start Saturday September 24 between noon and 4 PM EST, so get ready for some more PHun and your chance to be BEACHBUM of the MONTH and to be the BeachBum DJ for an hour, all you need to do is guess 10 songs in a "2 minute contest collection of snip-its" from each song played. Just name the 10 songs in order with the Artist and the Song title.
   Easy, yes? Well maybe not so easy. The snip-its will each have the word BeachFront, BeachBum or Beach in them, the title may or may not have those words in them. But the good news is that after we play the "2 minute contest collection" for the next 2 hours we'll play all the songs on the air at some time so the Artists and Song Titles will appear on the home page in the recent songs played and they'll also appear on your player while they are playing. The first person to correctly identify all 10 songs (or the most right if no one gets all 10) in order will be the BeachBum of the month and will receive a FREE BeachFront Radio T-shirt, select your size and color (Sandy Yellow or Ocean Blue). Sizes are subject to availability.
   After the two hours are up, we'll play the "2 minute contest collection" again to give you a chance to hear it one more time.
   If no one gets it the first day we'll do it again until someone gets them all or after 2 weeks. Have fun and email your guesses to:

andy@beachfrontradio.com.

We'll announce the BeachBum winner here and we'll let you know if you are right or not.
(note: the current BeachBum of the Month is not eligible to win until the next contest)

Keep on Trop Rockin' . . .  Andy.

Be sure to check out Sam Rainwater's new CD Cheaper Than Ice. This is a Kevin Johnston produced CD and Sam has really outdone himself this time. Every song is one you'll enjoy listening to and will be wanting to play over and over. Sam has an upper West Coast tour this summer so check out where he is playing on his web site. You may be able to catch him somewhere in the Northwest or even in Canada. We'll be seeing Sam at the Laid Back Attack up in Seattle, Wash as he makes his way up the coast and into Canada.

Check out his website and contact pages. His new CD is now in the Music Hut.
Click
HERE to get to his page in the Music Hut for all his CDs. Then click the ones you want to download.

His web site is
www.samlrainwater.com/
His email is on his website as well.


He is also on Facebook, Twitter and other social media and music sites.

We have just recently added another CD to the Music Hut. This is John McDonald's second album and we are very happy to include his very cool CD "Right Place Right Time" which has 11 high quality recording production and high energy sounds with a couple of mellow get you in the right mood songs. John blends reggae, rock and world beat music; recorded in Pittsburgh and Cocoa Beach, the result is a feel good, uptempo musical cocktail that combines tropical instrumentation,  world beat rhythms and provocative lyrics with poignant themes. Check out John's web site as well HERE.



A Trop Rock musician "Key West Chris" Rehm has recently published a book. How unique is that! The book Key West Chris wrote is one that probably anyone who has spent time at a bar can relate to, it's called:

"Bar Stories: A Semi-fictional Adventure Tour As Witnessed From A Bar Stool".


I think the title kind of sums it up. There are 23 chapters all telling a different story. Some funny, some serious, some semi-true, some composites of several stories. But one thing is common. They are all a lot of fun. You can download the book from Amazon and it downloads to your Kindle for Free or you can buy it as a download file. Just go to Amazon and type in Bar Stories, it's the first one that pops up.


Go to the Amazon link HERE to download the book. You can also go the BeachFront Tropical Mall under Tropical Reading for more info and the Amazon link there too. Tropical Reading HERE

I want to give you a few brief updates on registration and the hotel situation as I am still getting email on these topics.

Get Registered HERE for MOTM or click the MOTM image above. The official Logo has not yet been released.
 
Registration is going VERY WELL this year. In fact it is moving at a rate not seen since the 20th annual when we sold out the event. Remember that we close registration at 3,500 or on September 15th whichever comes first. Don’t plan to wait too late in the year to book your reservation and get left out. Also remember we have a great contest prize and the deadline is only a month or so away!

**** Here are a few of the latest CDs that have been added to the Music Hut

The Detentions.  Nominated in a couple of categories for the TRMA awards this year. A mix of Country, Americana and Folk that they like to call "Rockamole". And they are now in the Music Hut. There are two of their CDs in the Music Hut, "The Detentions" and "Rockamole". There are some really great Trop Rock songs in there too and we have been playing them for over a year now on the air. And some songs I've heard also play on Sirius/XM Margaritaville too. And their other songs are pretty darn good as well. Check 'em out and download their music HERE from the Music Hut.

Don Middlebrook and his new album "Songs From Talespin Bay"

Congrats to Don for winning three Trop Rock Music Association Awards this year!


This is a re-mastering of Don’s award-winning Talespin CD. Twelve songs enhanced with the Bob Seger’s horn band, The Motor City Horns, and James “Sunny Jim” White’s steel drums. There are an additional nine new songs, making this a twenty-one song CD with twenty-five contributing artists and musicians.

Remembering Jim Morris

Jim Morris "The Godfather of Trop Rock" will live forever in his music that is played on all the Trop Rock Radio Stations around the country. And all the musicians that will be playing his songs. And all his fans, "Fish Heads", that will remember what he did to bring so much joy to so many people for nearly 20 years.



A youtube tribute slideshow video has been put together in honor of Jim Morris and was submitted to BeachFront Radio by the Parrot Heads of Central Florida.  Watch the video by clicking HERE.

"This video is a tribute to the life and music of Jim Morris, who left this world much too soon. Jim will be greatly missed by his wife Sharon, his family, his friends, and fellow musicians from around the globe. His music and memories will continue to last for all of us.   Sail on Jim!"
