There’s a new radio station in Palm Beach County that’s been on the air for just over a year now, and it’s one that’s refreshingly different from the other stations on the FM dial. Legends Radio does not play the latest hits, the loudest rock music or the angriest rap lyrics. Instead, it plays mellow standards from decades past as recorded by some of the biggest names in music, including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Michael Bublé, to name a few. There aren’t too many radio stations in my area that play this kind of music 24 hours a day, and it’s literally a breath of fresh air.
There are some pleasant on-air personalities who keep the music coming all day, but my favorite is Dick Robinson, who happens to be the founder of Legends Radio and the host of American Standards by the Sea, which is broadcast nationally and can also be heard online. He too plays these golden standards and talks about the music he plays in his very soothing, down-to-earth voice that makes this show such a joy to tune in.
I was so delighted with Legends Radio that I sent an e-mail to Mr. Robinson to let him know how much I enjoy the music and to express my hope that this station stays on the air instead of coming and going like some of the other radio stations in my area. I received a response from a staff member telling me that they’ve been getting lots of e-mails from listeners who too enjoy Legends Radio and assured me that this station is planning to stay on the air for a long time to come. This is truly timeless music that needs to continue spanning the decades to reach new generations of music lovers and it’s nice to see Legends Radio doing its part to keep that music alive and well.
