I hope you tuned in to BeachFront Radio and the interview we aired recently with a brand new Trop Rock artist, Jody Bly, who made his Key West debut at the Smokin' Tuna for the BeachFront Radio Welcome Party MOTM 2021.  He was born and raised in Key West and is a true Conch and has "Salt in his Veins". He told some great stories of being a Shrimp Boat Captain in the Keys and other parts of Florida and how he got hooked up with BeachFront Radio and this crazy world of Trop Rock. His stories had us "Blown Away". (that just also happens to be the name of his first song ever played on a Trop Rock Radio station - BeachFront Radio)

 

 

Hey and one other thing. During the interview we made the announcement that Jody Bly and his wife, Margaret, will be our West Coast BeachFront Radio Ambassadors.

 

Welcome to the BeachFront Radio family and also the wonderful world of Trop Rock.

What a great time everyone had in Key West for MOTM this past week.  It was great seeing everyone there again having a great time. Our Smokin Tuna shows all week were Smokin Hot as always and the highlight was the All Star show on Sunday. The place was packed and rockin.  We also auctioned off a BeachFront Radio plaque that was created by one of our Ambassadors, Kevin Karcher. He did a great job on it and the proceeds for the auction went to Danny Rosado to help him out. Like so many other previous events.  The auction for the plaque went to John Farrell for $1400 dollars. And we filled up the Tip Jar for Danny as well that brought in $674. Above is a picture of the winner, John holding the plaque, along with Boomer and myself. I'm also going to post some pictures of some of the performers we had at our shows at the Tuna. Click HERE to see the Photo Gallery.

And we had some great musicians performing at Hanks Hair of the Dog and there was great Trop Rock all over the Island and the Casa Marina.

Andy - the head BeachBum (actually I was a Beach Bum when I was in my teens surfing in So. Calif., sometimes sleeping on the beach, what a great time that was)

I hope you caught the interview we broadcasted recently. If not it will soon be posted to Youtube where you will be able to hear it at any time. It was about the fastest growing sport in the World, Pickleball. I had the privilege of participating in a Pickleball Pro Stop for the PPA (Professional Pickleball Association) this past June in San Clemente, Calif and competed against some very good players. And while I was there I was given the opportunity by the Commisioner of the PPA Mr. Connor Pardoe to interview some of the Pro Pickleball Players. It was a real pleasure to talk to some of the best players in the world and get their insights into where the sport of Pickleball is heading and how some of them got started in Pickleball. They were all very gracious in giving of their time for me to interview them. The people I had the honor to interview were Ben Johns the #1 Men's player in the world. Simone Jardim the #1 Women's player in the world. Dekel Bar #5, Anna Leigh Waters #6 and just 14 years-old with Kyle Yates, Rick Barry the Hall of Fame Basketball Player from 1965 through 1980 now kicking it in Pickleball at 77. I also got to speak to Hannah Johns, Ben Johns' older sister, who interviews the players after their matches for the PPA. And one of the Legends of Pickleball and a former #1 Senior Pro PB player Dave Weinbach and still one of the best Senior Pros. And lastly Connor Pardoe the Commisioner of the PPA. Oh Yeah we also play some pickleball songs throughout the interviews from the Pickleball Songs of America CD featured right here on BeachFront Radio. I hope you enjoy listening to the interviews and I hope to one day see you on the Pickleball Court.

When the interview is posted on Youtube we will let you all know on this page and our Newsletter and other social connections.

There is a new CD in town and it isn't Trop Rock . . . .  but it is . . . .  What am I talking about you say?  It's PICKLEBALL !!!

 

Yes - some of our Trop Rockers have created a musical CD about Pickleball !!! How cool is that. If you don't know what this game is about well it's about time you did. It is the fastest growing sport in the nation and quite possibly the world. 

 

About the CD . . . They have finally arrived !!! . . . these are 15 original songs about Pickleball . . . the CD and/or Downloads can be purchased right here on BeachFront Radio in our Tropical Mall/Pickleball. Or click the image below. Is this a cool cover or what !!! And one more thing, part of the sales goes to help the Shriners Hospitals for Children, Tampa, FL.

 

The CD is now available on CD Baby and all the major music outlets to include Spotify, AppleTunes, iTunes, Youtube and  soon on all the major Pickleball outlets but why wait when you can get it right now. You can preview all of the songs by clicking the cover image above.

 

You won't be disappointed. . .  Plus you will get a second CD/Download of the original songs done by the artists before it was a Pickleball song. 27 songs in total on 2 CDs. Actually 28 songs as we are including a special BONUS song written by The Cabana Dogs just for the Shriners kids. A very touching song called "The Road to Love".

Not a bad deal. . . . 28 great songs, 2 CDs about Pickleball and Trop Rock.  The physical CD is finally here.  Tell all your friends to buy these CD/songs . . . . But please don't share as we are raising $$$ for the Shriners Hospitals for Children as 20% goes to them.

 

That's not all - - -  check out this video "Pickleball Wizard" that Jimi Pappas is singing on. You might recognize the tune from the song "The Pinball Wizard" by The Who. 

Then they did 12 parody songs of some of the best songs of the 50s 60s and 70s including 4 Beatles songs, John Lennon, The Eagles, The Drifters, The Who, The Youngbloods, Elvis and even a guy named Jimmy Buffett. The guys did a great job, Jimi Pappas and Charlie DeCosa did 8 of the songs. Songs were also done by Tiki Thom Starkey, Gary Seiler and Johnny Russler.

 

Thanks, and I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. . . . And a little heads up too. . .  we're working on Volume 2 of the Pickleball Songs.

 

Take care and I hope to see YOU on the Pickleball court someday. 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.

Santa trains, foliage trains, and a host of special events make the Colebrookdale Railroad perfect for making lasting memories.
