NEWS ABOUT SOME FUN NEW SHOWS COMING TO THE BEACHFRONT !!!

It's finally time to unleash some new shows on BeachFront Radio. These new daily shows will start next Monday and are strictly music shows but we want to give you something each day with a little twist and some listener participation (like our Thursday all request hour. They will air around noon each day for about an hour. Here are the new shows:

   -  On Monday we are debuting 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". Requests can be made on Facebook or by emailing them to us at andy@beachfrontradio.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: andy@beachfrontradio.com
   -  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.

Then for our exciting new show that will begin in June on Saturdays when the sun goes down, we are starting the "BeachFront BonFire Bash" featuring songs that you might sing with all your friends around a bonfire at the beach. We'll be having special guests, talking to our BeachBum friends and finding out what's going on out there in our Trop Rock world. We might even read some Facebook postings from what our friends are up to. Tell us what events you all are going to or something that is coming up that we may not know about. This show will be hosted by yours truly, Andy the BeachBum.

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. andy@beachfrontradio.com

And on Sunday we are getting ready to begin our Sunday Inspirational show (official title is still TBD). Special songs that might inspire you, a thoughtful or reflective song or it could have some some spiritual message, but mostly songs to make you think and maybe make you feel just a little better. After all as Jimmy says, "there's a fine line between Saturday night and Sunday morning". We just want to make your Sundays a little better. This show will be starting sometime in June as well. The hosts for this show could vary from time to time, but we have two special people that will be kicking off the show and will be the main hosts, to be announced very soon.

Wow, that's a lot of new things happening. A little something for everyone. I hope you like the new shows.   . . .  and as always, Keep on Trop Rockin' . . . Andy.

    I've been listening to Beachfront Radio since it first went live on the internet, I knew Jeff personally and always had the highest regard for him and Carol. I listen to BFR on my Mac desktop computer and have been trying to use the new player but every 5 minutes of so it shuts off for no reason, any clue what the problem may be? Bob
