As a former and now retired beautiful music radio programmer, I invite you to tune into our streaming station by clicking the icon at our website BEAUTIFULinstrumentals.com presenting beautiful music from the beautiful mountains of the Sierra Madre Oriental and the golden shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Relaxing creative background music with a touch of jazz and classical- perfect for working, studying, meditation, creativity and entertaining. Basic mix of traditional orchestral standards with light mix of acoustic contemporary instrumental music aka Newage as well as Music from Broadway, Hollywood and America's great collection of standards. Here is what some of our listeners are saying about the station:
I am 36 years old and wasn't really aware of programming when I was listening as a youngster in the 70s and early 80s. Is your new station formatted in the way one of the older Beautiful Music stations would have been programmed? [YES] I seem to recall that our station would play the occasional brighter David Rose, Nelson Riddle or Percy Faith tunes in the morning hours. Perhaps I wish there were a definitive resource available on this music, but that's well beyond my scholarly expertise. Just wanted to let you know that your Beautiful Instrumentals (beautiful indeed), thanks to live365, reaches us here in Nagasaki Japan and has become our first station of choice....Tim Beautiful. Absolutely marvelous. I spend my weekends, all day long, with your broadcast. Thanks. I'm in Sao Paulo, Brazil. What a great station! Please continue to play easy listening instrumentals. Other stations play mostly vocals. I much prefer intrumentals. Nelson Riddle is the greatest! And thanks for bringing back this genre of music. I used to listen to some FM radio stations in Ontario in the 1980's that played instrumentals. No one else seems to play this kind of music anymore. Now I have your station in my Favorites list. Found your www.beautifulinstrumentals.com station quite by accident when searching for a "beautiful music station" that would allow me to listen without playing disturbing "big band" or nostalga music. There are other beautiful music format stations but none have the special touch yours has. I think when you use the word "quiet" it says it all. Easy listening has become a label that is applied indescriminatly to various types of music including "soft rock". When I found your station, and heard how tasteful and "pure" your brand of easy listening is, I immediately knew I had found a station programmed by someone who knew what they were doing. When I go to sleep, I have your station on, and when I wake up, it's there as I hit the snooze button, and there's nary a shift in the continuity. To me, listening to a format such as this, and having a cut that is harsh or not melodic, totally ruins the mood for me. Many of the artists you play have produced cuts that were of that category, and the difference between your station, and others, is that you recognize the difference and eliminate them from airplay. Indeed, kudos to you! My name is Phill and I am 47 years old. I live in Pennsylvania and I am an avid fan of Easy Listening music. I discovered your Live365.com [BEAUTIFULinstrumentals] station an hour ago and was quite impressed with the music I heard. To be specific, I heard music from the 70s & 80s. I have a real fondness for older Easy Listening music. (Easy Listening Oldies as I would call this music) I find it rather difficult to find certain Easy Listening standards I heard at one time. Maybe, in the near future I could ask the group about finding these standards. For now, I will just make a connection with the group and introduce myself as an avid fan....Thank You for this great station!!! I've lived in the Greater Philadelphia area since 1971. I really miss the wonderful music that used to be played on WDVR, WWSH, WPBS, WFPG, and WJBR. I will always love this music. Thanks for bringing it back. For the time being, I can only listen on my home PC. Maybe someday technology will permit me to listen in my car and at work. (I can't listen at work now--the tech geeks are afraid I will use up their precious bandwidth.) Thanks for the memories. I'll be listening.
