You know what that means… HUMP DAY! I am amazed about how much that is caught on with everyone. I do love that commercial. I get web traffic every Wednesday because of a post I added over a month ago to Beach Music Online. I love to see the traffic come from Google for “Guess what day it is“.. even though the info is dated a month ago.

I try to watch what pages get traffic.. being that this is a blog, pages get outdated due to posting about current events during that time. My CBMA Posts and Nominations from 2010, 2011 and 2012 are still being seen. Here is the nominations for cbma 2013 as announced last Friday from 94.9 The Surf and the CBMA.

CBMA Nominations Note

I am very honored to once again be nominated for the Michael Branch award. To all those that nominated me, THANK YOU! I love working in this crazy industry we call Carolina Beach Music and it feels good to get recognized this way.. There are a lot of shout-outs I need to make about the other categories, I will probably create a post about that tomorrow or the next day. I am very proud to be working with many of the bands, clubs, promoters, artists and events that were nominated for this year’s awards.

shag-cityusaI do have to focus on one – and that is Shag City USA – A couple of years ago, Keith Houston and I with our partnership in the Southern Soul Network decided to enter into a partnership with Jeff Gilder and Zeus Radio for Shag City USA, making it the Home of Southern Soul Radio and the Carolina’s Beast Beach Music. We have seen tremendous growth during these 2 years with listeners in 49…. yes 49 states.. (Wyoming finally buckled under pressure and we now have listeners there as well). We are still having issues reaching the South Dakotans, but we will keep playing it until they are able to find the music we play. Shag City USA was nominated for “Best Internet Radio Station” by the CBMA Industry and Academy on the first year of the category. Thanks to all that listen to the station! Members start getting their ballots next week. Don’t forget to vote if you are a CBMA Member!
