New frequencies: 102.9FM Sevilla and 96.1FM Granada

In the efforts to bring BeachGrooves to the world we now have two more frequencies here in Spain.  Moving slightly inland, the good music lovers of Sevilla and Granada can now pick up the radio on 102.9FM (Sevilla) and 96.1FM (Granada). This is in addition to the four frequencies we currently have.  We are pleased with the expansion and hope to have more news from the people of Seville in the next issue. More info here

He won the Mr. Olympia title six consecutive times from 1992 and holds the fourth-highest number of Mr. Olympia awards of all time, ranking behind Ronnie Coleman , Lee Haney , and Arnold Schwarzenegger respectively. He is widely considered one of the top athletes in modern bodybuilding history.  This was Dorian Yates in the Beachgrooves Studio this afternoon during Keith Bradshaw ( Keef Luv ´s radio show).  Excited was an understatement.

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.

BeachGrooves Sunday Terrace Sessions: Part 1

Good Day Groovers,

Hot on the heels of the announcement of the next party comes a small review about the 1st party… BeachGrooves hits the streets!

On Sunday 5th April, BeachGrooves Radio took to the port of Marbella for an all day deep house music bonanza at Sunset Terrace, located in the beautiful setting of the Port of Marbella.  The Sun was shining and the day from the outset can only be described as a monumental success.

The day was amazing…

Station manager and resident Derek D (flown in from Belgium) and Keef Luv (weekday resident) opened the day with a sublime and uplifting deep house “back-to-back” DJing duet easing the crowd into what was to come.  The crowds soon built up quickly around the terrace with the many visitors and locals out enjoying Semana Santa weekend.  Sunday regular DJ Sema Garay followed up with a beautiful soulful house session perfect for the afternoon.  Weekday resident Tito Pulpo continued the flow raising the pace bringing everyone out of their seats dancing.  The Terrace session was also broadcast live on BeachGrooves Radio throughout the afternoon.

BeachGrooves Outside Radio broadcast

A number of the BGDJs showed up in support of the station and their fellow DJs including Steve Canueto (The Weekend Warmup – every Friday 5-7pm), DJ Erik, DJ Boris, DJ Godoy and DJ Biggie amongst other regular musical maestros.

Many passers-by were armed with camera capturing the show with the Go-Go dancers, percussionist and trumpet player blending seamlessly with the uplifting music of the BGDJs…within an hour, Sunset was alive and bulging to the capacity even with people outside waiting to be placed.  Sunset soon became the center of interest and entertainment for the usual Sunday afternoon Marbella Port visitors. The session was so successfully that it continued for over an hour and a half AFTER it´s scheduled closing time of 8pm, people just didn’t want to go home.

Here are some pics from the day…

Our Next Musical outing:

It is with great pleasure that we can announce our next date at Sunset. We are back once again on SUNDAY 3rd May 2015 so get it into your diary… a day not to be missed

BeachGrooves resident DJs for the day were:

Derek D (#BGMorningShow, every weekday morning from 8am-10am)

Keef Luv (Every weekday from 2pm-4pm)

Sema Garay (Every Sunday from 5pm-7pm)

Tito Pulpo (Every weekday from 1pm-2pm)

BeachGrooves studio cam – NOW LIVE

LIVE WEBCAM STREAM

The BeachGrooves studio cam is now live.  In amongst all the other work we´ve been doing here in the studio and in the office upgrading and adding bits and pieces of kit, another of out projects has come to light and we are now able to offer you a visual experience as well as sound. In an effort to make the BeachGroove experience bigger and better for you we are now broadcasting the action from the studio directly to you via a number of webcams that have been setup in the studio.

BeachGrooves-LIVE-CAM-screenshot

Video as well as audio

As well as the audio stream that you can get online through this website, the TUNEIN app, Shoutcast as well as FM, Beachgrooves is now coming to you in HD video as well as clear CD quality audio.  We hope this will make the musical experience better for you.

Traditional radio stations only allow for a listening experience but we at BeachGrooves don´t feel very traditional in that respect and would like our audience to get to know us just that little bit better by putting faces to the music. We hope that seeing the DJs will bring a little more of a personal touch and build a better connection with you, our listeners.  There are a few more items in store for the ever growing BeachGrooves so be sure to check back regularly or SUBSCRIBE to the website for weekly updates.

Give the video cam a go and check out the studio – We´re very excited to be able to bring this service to you and hope you enjoy watching it as-it-happens.
