Hey BeachBums and Parrotheads,


Big Trop Rock News in Key West!!! 


Everyone knows by now about what is “Happening” in Key West this Nov 1-5.


Trop Rock'N Duval

(A Festival of Music Born in Key West)

So we figured if we are going to be featuring Trop Rock songwriters and having lots of Showcases going on, . . .  well we need a theme song to go along with it written by the songwriters themselves.


So we asked them to write us a song for our songwriters challenge. We will be announcing the 2 winning songs later this month and let you hear what they have to say about their song. We will air all the songs submitted, then announce the winning 2 songs. They will then record their song (studio quality version) and we'll be playing the heck out of them leading up to November in Key West. They might even put it on their next CD or Album. How cool is that. Stay tuned for the announcement. Be sure to read the Newsletter making the announcement and also on Facebook.


Be sure to tell your friends to come on down to Key West Nov 1-5 right after MOTM is done for a whole lot of Trop Rock Music all over Key West and Duval. We'll be . . .

The band "Ships Have Sailed" whom you may have heard from time on BeachFront Radio we recently had them on our Radio Station airwaves for an interview. The lead member of the band, Will Carpenter is our Artist of the month of May.  You will be able to hear their new Live Album from Ojai, Calif on BeachFront Radio a whole lot during May.



Their website is: shipshavesailed.com

You can purchase the download and also watch the live recording of the album. And you can download all their music, learn more about them and watch some of their videos. Hey you can even hire them for your upcoming event or house concert.



And other news from Will that is very personal to him, which we talked about during the interview. . . 


The lead member of the band, Will - was asking everyone to help his Brother-in-Law, Casey Hockett, who is dealing with Brain Cancer (Glioblastoma) and needs financial support in his fight with this horrible Cancer. Without going into too much detail here I will tell you that his family will have to stop treatment because the amount of money needed is quite large. So Please help and go to a page we have set up on BeachFront Radio where you can then go directly to their GoFundMe page or purchase some great BeachFront Radio merchandise to help out. Every little bit helps.

I would like to share with you something very profound that Michelle Orlandi Becker posted just recently. I have felt this way about Musicians for a long time. A gentleman by the name of David Ackert wrote this article that was published in the LA Times in April of 2013. . . . . .


“Singers and Musicians are some of the most driven, courageous people on the face of the earth. They deal with more day-to-day rejection in one year than most people do in a lifetime. Every day, they face the financial challenge of living a freelance lifestyle, the disrespect of people who think they should get real jobs, and their own fear that they'll never work again. Every day, they have to ignore the possibility that the vision they have dedicated their lives to is a pipe dream. With every note, they stretch themselves, emotionally and physically, risking criticism and judgment. With every passing year, many of them watch as the other people their age achieve the predictable milestones of normal life - the car, the family, the house, the nest egg. Why? Because musicians and singers are willing to give their entire lives to a moment - to that melody, that lyric, that chord, or that interpretation that will stir the audience's soul. Singers and Musicians are beings who have tasted life's nectar in that crystal moment when they poured out their creative spirit and touched another's heart. In that instant, they were as close to magic, God, and perfection as anyone could ever be. And in their own hearts, they know that to dedicate oneself to that moment is worth a thousand lifetimes.”

- David Ackert, LA Times, April 5, 2013

Welcome to our latest Sponsor - - -

The Colebrookdale Railroad !!!  

Website: colebrookdalerailroad.com    or click HERE


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. 

Read more about this unique Train Adventure in Pennsylvania's Secret valley aboard the Colebrookdale Railroad right HERE.
