I was just spending a few minutes updating the information I have on my “links” tab and was reminded that there are so many people who travel in Trop Rock circles who do so much, simply for the love of what they’re doing and for others. This may come off as a”Duh” kind of moment. Because many of you are Parrot Heads, you are already aware of the selflessness of others in the Phlock, but there are a few non-Parrot Heads that are fans of my site. That in mind, I wish to give a shout out to some of those hard working, giving Pholks who dedicate so much time for the benefit of song writers and trop rock in particular.
There are several good peeps out there who run the internet radio stations that we, as trop rockers, count on to be heard.
Of course, a huge thanks goes out to DJ Jeff at Beachfront Radio, who, along with Captain Cali and Cheeto Gyrl continue to promote Trop Rock everywhere. They’ve won the award for Top Trop Rock Station several years in a row and are well deserving!
There are several others out there, who not only play Schooner tunes (and other trop rockers), but also do what they do for little or no reward. Please check them out!
- Bret Walton is the CEO and Music Director at Island Radio, a great destination for tunes that take you to your favorite destinations!
- At The Shore, Contact Don “Da Pyrate” Winfield to request an artist on this terrific trop rock station!
- At Island Time Radio, DK the DJ serves ’em up every Monday night! Check him out!
- Sam Densler oversees Song Writers Island, a wonderful haven of original Trop Rock tunes.
In addition to these great stations, there are so many others who have always supported original and Trop Rock music. There’s one that I wish to mention now, though I know there are so many. If you haven’t met Koz from Koz’s Green World Gallery in Key West, you’d better get up and go! Koz is an amazing artist, A HUGE supporter of Trop Rock, and one hell of a nice guy!
I suppose this is me saying thanks to these and other great supporters of Trop Rock. It’s also my reminder to you, to do the same. Face it, our lives just wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have them to help us lose ourselves in our own little Margaritaville!
