"THE MUSIC THAT MADE THE MEMORIES"
Back to the Beach Radio was developed in 2011 while I was living in Louisville, Kentucky. Being from North Carolina I missed the music that was associated with the Carolinas, so I decided to bring Carolina beach music to listeners across the world. So, what is Carolina beach music?
Beach music, also known as Carolina beach music, and to a lesser extent, Beach pop, is a regional genre of music in the United States which developed from rock/R&B and pop music of the 1950s and 1960s. Beach music is most closely associated with the style of swing dance known as the shag, or the Carolina shag, which is also the official state dance of both North Carolina and South Carolina. Recordings with a 4/4 "blues shuffle" rhythmic structure and moderate-to-fast tempo are the most popular music for the shag, and the vast majority of the music in this genre fits that description. carolina beach music radio station
