We hope the New Year is starting off well for you and we look forward to a Kewl and Phun 2020. Here are a couple of show time changes.

The popular Five O'clock Buffett show will now feature a new show just once per month and will air 4 times a week instead of 8.  And it will be an hour show instead of just 30 minutes.

Fri at 5 PM Sat 2:20 PM, Mon 4:40 PM, Wed 5 AM EST

the next week will be . . .

Fri at 5 PM Sun 7 AM, Tues 4:40 PM and Thurs 1:45 PM.

The Trop 5 will continue with 5 airings per week, see the schedule a little further down on this page.

Then we are proud to usher in a brand new show that will be heard exclusively right here on BeachFront Radio. A show that is close to my heart featuring stories and songs about the roots of Trop Rock music featuring National, and International Songwriters, Singers, Bands and Radio Shows from the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s and some even earlier. In my book "Trop Rock Songs Stories and Tales" (2011) I mentioned the fact that many people were playing "Trop Rock" like songs a long time ago and so DJ John has found recordings of old shows from long ago. The show is called "78s by Hank Snow". As DJ John will play and discuss radio shows from the past and explain the connections as only he can.  The shows will air every Monday and Thursday at 8 PM EST and the show is one hour long.

And now a report from Andy

about the recently revived Midwinter Meltdown in Manassas, Virginia. . .   Jan 24-26, 2020


Midwinter Meltdown 2020, Manassas, Virginia


The return of the much anticipated Midwinter Meltdown was evident as it was a sold out event and every show was packed with all of our friends from previous years and many new ones as well.  Friday the doors opened up and already people were pouring in to see the first performer who has been here a couple of times before, Chris Rall and the Compatriots.  He did some Roger Miller,  Bonnie Raitt, CCR, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Zac Brown and other covers and he closed with Louis Armstrong’s, "Wonderful World".  And to say it right he did a wonderful job.

Then Tropical Soul did their thing with lots of their old favorites, songs from their past CDs and their most recent ones too. Heather of course was there and Dennis’s son Daniel rounded out the trio and even did a few songs himself and even one of his originals. Then at the end of the set the other 2 ladies that are part of Girlz Rule joined them on stage for some musical PHun.

The evening concluded with the The Calypso Nuts reunited, Robbie and Linley with Brad Brewer on Sax, Michael Robertson on percussion. They started things off with “I Will Play for Gumbo”, “All Night Long” and the music just kept on rolling all night long.  It was an even more special night because Lynley’s 91 year-old father was there to enjoy the music and festivities.  He was seated in the front row for the night.  I spoke to him later on in the weekend and he is a World War II and Korean War veteran. What a great guy, I really enjoyed talking with him.

Then on Saturday the Klee and Mike Show kicked off the festivities.  They are part of a bigger group known as Ramajay Intercoastal. Mike Robertson was the percussionist and continued to sit in with most of the acts the remainder of the weekend. Then Tall Paul and Kristie took the stage and they performed many of their own songs. They also invited Page to sing who is the Lead singer for the Air Force Band.  She did a marvelous job.

Then to make his return to the Trop Rock scene and Midwinter Meltdown after a long hiatus was Matt Hall all decked out in a Pirate outfit.  He did a Hugo Duarte pirate song, some Buffett songs and some of his originals as well. He even did a Zac Brown and Bob Marley songs. And a beautiful rendition of “In Your Eyes” a Peter Gabriel song that was featured in the 80s movie “Say Anything”.

Girlz Rule came out smokin’ and never slowed down. It was standing room only on the dance floor and it continued the whole time.  Her father again was there and he got a great view of the show from a chair just in front of the stage. I’m sure he is very proud of her.  The show was full of fun, lots of antics, stories of how they got started and a couple of Kristie’s corny jokes. Their show ended with “Me and Bobby McGee”.

Tall Paul and the Divers rocked it until Crawlspace took over the stage for the concluding act. This is Crawdaddy’s blues review band. It’s been a long time since we got to see him but he helped out most of the artists on Friday and Saturday with his action packed harmonica playing. The Crawlspace band was all blues and they played on until around 12:30 when their time was up. What a great weekend of music, but it wasn’t over yet. . . .


Because on Sunday the Drunkwriters brunch kicked things off  at 11 AM with a great all you can eat brunch and all you can listen to music. Robbie Meade was the host as he always was, he usually comes out in his pajamas but this time he was actually in regular clothes, but someone else was in pajamas this year, Lynley.  Anyway after a few of his songs, stories, and his ad lib song/story about the weekend some other performers took the stage who were not on the docket for the weekend but were in the house for the music. Mike Mangum, John Friday performed and then Robbie invited up a special guest. Someone who had been working hard all weekend to make sure the singers, musicians and the bands sounded great, “the sound guy”, Justin. He blew us away with his rendition of Sam Cooke’s, “Bring It On Home To Me”. He also did a fine job of a couple of other songs. As Robbie said, I wasn't expecting THAT. And That was pretty darn good. Then Chris Rall came back, Daniel McCaughey, Dennis McCaughey, and Lynley did an original song and played the guitar. She’s usually on the pans, but as she said, she felt naked not having the pans to hide behind. She was a little nervous but did a great job. And John Friday came up to help her with a song they had just written together the night before. Then she did “Me and Bobby McGee” with Heather helping out. Girlz Rule followed up with “Jolene”.   Tall Paul and Kristie did some songs and before Tall Paul was about to do a James Taylor song, “Gone to Carolina” he told us of how he met James Taylor at one of his sons concerts, Benjamin Taylor. 

The last song of the weekend was "Three Little Birds" with all of the singers from the weekend up on stage taking turns doing a verse. There must have 12 up on the stage at one time. What a great weekend. And the raffles and silent auctions were helping to raise money for the Prince William SPCA. The Pirates of the Potomac were the organizers and did a great job and kept things running smoothly all weekend. Lets hope they bring it back again next year. This is always a wonderful event and one of the favorites of the musicians.
