Edgewater Gold Radio, a local internet radio station in Rehoboth Beach, has added some unique new shows to its programming lineup.
The station, run by Jim Murphy, has been streaming oldies for 18 years. Edgewater Gold Radio was originally based in New Jersey but resurfaced in Rehoboth Beach four years ago when Murphy relocated to Delaware. Edgewater Gold Radio streams golden oldies from the ‘50s to the ‘80s and offers some songs not heard on traditional FM radio.
The station offers listeners local information and current events, and gives local merchants a chance to promote their business.
Several new shows have recently been added to the lineup. Nightmemories airs from 9 p.m. to midnight Monday to Friday. It features a softer blend of oldies mixed with popular vocals and standards like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald and Andy Williams. Murphy hand-picks the music and plays songs that enable the listener to unwind at the end of a busy day.
The Seventies Party Train has been added to the station’s weekend lineup, featuring up-tempo 1970s songs mixed with TV themes, ‘70s facts and trivia from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturdays.
