Spreading wings…more new frequencies

We are growing…still!

All the good folks here at BGHQ are very pleased to announce the addition of, not one, but TWO more new radio frequencies down here on the Coast (and maybe more…sssshhhh).  Not only do we have our coastal signals covering Nerja to Gibraltar but we are now expanding the FM inland.

Last week we welcomed the good people of Sevilla (102.9FM) and also those in the region of Granada (96.1FM).  The new signal coverage means we are now reaching a much greater area of the Spanish mainland along the FM signal and the BeachGrooves family is ever growing.

These new frequencies join our others covering Malaga (88.9FM), Marbella (97.1FM), San Pedro (94.2FM) and one of our younger frequencies, Sotogrande (103.3FM).  We have also improved the sound on our online stream which is also available through iTunes, TuneIn and many other online stream services.  We also have growth with our video stream in the form of BGTV (beachgrooves.com/bgtv) as we will soon be streaming this service over a IPTV channel through our ISP (Internet Service Provider) Olivenet.

Expansion – The way forward.

We are still testing out the maximum reach of the new signals and plans are underway for the inclusion of greater power in order to give you the best signal possible.  The addition fits nicely into the many long term plans we have for BeachGrooves and there is a lot more in the bag to come. Also, more growth in our other media services (video and audio).

Want to get involved?

With this expansion we are now also looking for collaborators in these ares to help with our promotion and sponsorship deals.  If you are interested in getting involved with some of the major plans we have coming up then please get in contact with us.  Initially we will be looking for individuals or teams to help with promotion and advertising in any way, shape or form, so if you feel this could be something for you then give us a call, (+34) 952 799 344 or simply send an email to our promotions manager Dirick Joris at dirick@beachgrooves.com and see how we can help each other.

The BG Family Grows 🙂

Thank you all for your continuing support in what we are trying to bring to the coast as well as to the world.
