Hey BeachBums !!!

Two weeks ago at The Rally Point Sport Grill, in Raleigh (Cary), North Carolina on April 11, 2015 the Parrot Heads of North Carolina held a tribute to our beloved singer/songwriter, Trop Rocker, great musician and cherished friend Hugo Duarte. Anne Marie Wotkyns asked Jeff Pike and Mark Perrou to lead the musical tribute and celebration of the life of Hugo. His original Bass player Ross Sermon was also there to help in the celebration. He made the trip all the way from Tazmania. There was lots of Hugo pictures there, his "Hat" and "The Bell" and lots of his friends and his family were there. Several of his friends also stood up and talked about some of their great times and memories they had with Hugo and what they most fondly remembered about him. We at BeachFront Radio were able to video record the entire tribute. The tribute will be aired three times within the next week. The first airing will be at 2 PM this Saturday, April 25. A Hugo song will play first, then the tribute show and followed by a couple more Hugo songs. I spoke to Hugo just two weeks before Meeting of the Minds last year. We talked for over an hour and the last thing he said to me was, "I love you". I miss your smile, your music and our conversations so much and I love you too brother. Peace.

*** This is an Official BeachFront Radio backed and approved announcement. ***

Keith Sykes, a former member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band has a Kickstarter campaign underway. He's got less than 3 days left to raise the money needed to start his very cool new CD that he is working on, (And just a little over $2,000 left to go. I'm sure Keith is very appreciative to everyone that has made the pledge so far.) The Kickstarter is for 4 songs that he wants to get a studio quality recording done with. Please click on the link HERE and check it out. There is no obligation to read what it is about and you'll get some great rewards based on the amount you contribute. According to Keith no amount is too small, every dollar helps.

    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
