Hey BeachBums and Parrotheads,

 

Be sure to listen to our interview with John Knapp who was the Sound Engineer for the Big Burrito Radio show in Romeoville, Illinois around the Chicago area. For most of his career he was a Helicopter Instructor and Pilot flying around celebrities and Football players like Walter Payton. He also has a great story about the Surf Ball Room where Buddy Holly gave his last performance.

Being a huge Jim Morris fan we will be playing some Jim Morris songs throughout the interview that John asked me to play. The interview can be heard . . . . exclusively right here . . . . . 

on BeachFront Radio this Tuesday, Aug 20, at 7 PM EST, then again on Wed Aug 21 at 1 PM. And Finally on Thurs at 9 AM and 8 PM.

I hope you were able to catch the recent interview with the singer/songwriter Heather Hayes from Nashville. She talked about her songwriting, music career and  the songs she has written about on her new CD "Hideaway".  She co-wrote the songs with ACM Award winning songwriter Judy Rodman.

The songs she has written are a wonderful blend of styles, a little Trop Rock Beachy, a little Jazzy, Honky Tonky, Gospel, Swing and definitely Country. And her tribute song to Soldier's Wives is especially powerful.

 

 

Her website is: www.heatherhayesband.com

Her email is: heatherhayesmusicbooking@gmail.com

Facebook is: Heather Hayes Singer/Songwriter

She is also on all Music Outlets like CD Baby and is now included in the BeachFront Music Hut. But the songs you can download only directly from her website.

Our new feature is an editorial by one of our BeachFront Radio Ambassadors.  

This one is from BeachBum Andy reporting from Put-In-Bay, Ohio and the last PHlocking of the PHaithful on June 6-8, 2019.

On June 6-8, 2019 . . . . was the last Phlocking of the Phaithful in Put-In-Bay, Ohio has now come and gone. A happy and sad ending to a 25 year run of the second longest running Parrothead Event that isn’t MOTM. Everyone attending had a great time and even the few first timers for the last time there really enjoyed the festivities. The Jam Band sessions on Friday and Saturday night were the biggest hit with all or most of the musicians up on stage and just having a blast entertaining us.  Johnny Rodriguez and his guitar were a big hit both evenings. And he topped it off with his rendition of “The Pinball Wizard” all I can say is WOW.

Jerry Diaz got things going on Thursday and Latitude, Tom and Michelle Becker put on a great show. Then the music continued the rest of the weekend with John Reno, Don Middlebrook, Johhny Rodriguez, and coming out of retirement K.D. Moore and the always entertaining Corn Beef Curry.  Pam Fortner and Earl Barnhardt from the Tropical Isles in New Orleans were unable to attend but their Hand Grenades were still a real bomb, I mean blast, I mean a really Big Hit.  

 

Then on Sunday Dennis King, aka DKtheDJ of the TRMA Award winning “Island Time” show ran the Sunday open mic for anyone to come up and do a few songs. Oh yeah I did a couple of songs too including the John Prine song “You Got Gold”. 

 

We’ll see you somewhere around the country at one of the next Phlockings if not, then at MOTM for sure.

 

Take care and keep it kewl. . .  BeachBum Andy

Welcome to our latest Sponsor - - -

The Colebrookdale Railroad !!!

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to travel on a train back in time to when the country was being explored by our early pioneers?

 

 

Experience the wonder and splendor of the bygone era of the Titanic (1900 to 1916) aboard the Colebrookdale Railroad. Travel Through Pennsylvania's Secret valley, enjoy a five star meal, listen to the grand piano, or sip a specialty cocktail as the train crosses tall timber trestles and deep rock cuts on one of the northeast's most scenic journeys unspoiled by time. The Colebrookdale's Secret Valley looks much the same today as it would to the iron-willed pioneers who first ventured along its cold, rushing creeks three centuries ago. Santa trains, foliage trains, and a host of special events make the Colebrookdale Railroad perfect for making lasting memories.

 

Visit colebrookdalerailroad.com and book your trip today for the adventure of a lifetime into the past.
