About jay grandmont

My love for rock & roll can be traced back to when I was an adolescent watching the Beatles' first appearance on American TV. From then on, I was hooked and would listen to Top 40 AM radio stations every chance I got. Back then Top 40 was a mix of everything from soul to Merseybeat, country to R&B, folk to bubblegum, and everything in between. Later, as a young teen, I discovered album-oriented rock (AOR) on FM radio, which taught me that great songs don't always have to be Top 40 hits.

In the beginning, I began collecting those great Top 40 hits on 45 rpm singles, adding vinyl albums to my collection when I began listening to AOR. In the mid-80s, when it became apparent that vinyl was being phased out, I switched to compact discs. Now I buy most of my music in digital format. My record collection numbers well into the thousands.

I've worked as a part-time DJ and producer in both community and commercial FM radio and also worked as a free-lance DJ doing weddings, parties, dances, etc. I'm currently working part-time for a commercial FM station as a board operator and doing news and weather reports.

It's been a life-long dream to have my own radio station and has provided a way for me, at least on a very small level, to achieve that.

Broadcasting in bandwidth-friendly 32k mp3PRO stereo, Rock from the Beach is the internet radio station playing classic rock that you can listen to anywhere -- at home, at work, and now even in your car or on the beach using a smartphone app!

The playlist features a little reggae, a touch of soul, a bit of folk-rock, some R&B, a dash of southern rock, an occasional album cut, and lots of classic rock 'n roll without the hard stuff that you might not always be in the mood for. Of course, you'll hear all the classics from artists like The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, John Mellencamp, U2, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Jimmy Buffett, ELO, Steely Dan, James Taylor, and The Who. And, to keep it all sounding fresh, you'll hear a few contemporary artists that have a decidedly classic rock sound, like KT Tunstall, The Dave Matthews Band, Coldplay, Five for Fighting, Train, Sheryl Crow, O.A.R., John Mayer, and Jack Johnson.
