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.  First 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.

And 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 !!!

 

It will also be available on CD Baby and all the major music outlets and 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 isn't ready yet but you can get the download of all the songs and listen to them now.  Tell all your friends to buy these songs . . . . But please don't share as we are raising $$$ for the Shriners Hospitals for Children as 20% goes to them.

 

Thanks, and I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. . . . Andy

Pickleball Wizard Video

 

For anyone who likes Pickleball here is a great video about Pickleball. It is to the tune of the Pinball Wizard but the song is called the Pickleball Wizard.

Vocals are by Jimi Pappas and Charlie DeCosa.  

Jimi, myself and about a dozen Trop Rockers are creating a CD about Pickleball with all Pickleball songs. Most are originals by the artists where we have re-written one of their songs and turned it into a Pickleball song.

We are raising money for the Shriners Childrens Hospital in Tampa, FL

The CD will be released (hopefully) in Key West

during the non-MOTM Trop Rock gathering. 

We will have downloads as well.

 

Give a listen to the song and watch the Video.

Party in Paradise

returns to BeachFront Radio

Welcome back to Todd Sparks and Rock N Roll Cheri

Catch them every Thursday at 8 PM EST

Party in Paradise is a one hour show where we keep it light and positive. We focus on Paradise being a state of mind and that everyone's may be a little different. We talk about travel, music and food and we do interviews with national artists and other special guests that deal in paradise and play music from the guests and off of Todd's albums. He tells jokes and has his "cousin" Buford come on and talk and tell jokes too. It's a fun show to relax to, chill to or pass the work day to! I hope you enjoy it.

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.
