I know my parents and friends back in Boston, who have had rain for something like 2 weeks in a row now, will disagree with me when I say this, but it really is starting to feel like summer is upon us. The days are nice and long with lots of opportunities to get out and enjoy some Northern California sunshine, but the good thing is, TuneIn gives you lots of ways to celebrate the sunshine wherever you are.
Down in Alabama this weekend, the Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival gets underway today with a wide range of great musical acts to enjoy. Everything from Widespread Panic and Michael Franti to Girl Talk, Foo Fighters and the event headliner, Paul Simon. The second annual event brings together more than 50 acts over 3 days all live and direct from the beaches of Gulf Shores, AL. And you can follow all the great music throughout the weekend on TuneIn with Hangout Radio which will bring you live performances and all the sights and sounds of the festival all weekend long. And for companion coverage, check out WZEW in Mobile for all the information around the festival.
We featured this on Facebook yesterday, but we liked it so much we want you to take Hawaii’s KWXX with you all weekend long. No matter where you are, you can get the sounds of the islands and the Spirit of Aloha all across the world and in your pocket with TuneIn.
In sports, the NBA and NHL Conference Finals are heating up and Interleague Play begins in Major League Baseball. Bill Littlefield’s exemplary Only A Game program will bring you the stories behind the stories, airing at many times all weekend long, so check the directory for the time that suits you best – or set it up to record on TuneIn Pro and check it out on YOUR schedule! Elsewhere, the second leg of the Triple Crown steps off in Baltimore this weekend at The Preakness Stakes. Keep it tuned to WBAL in Baltimore for coverage up to the race tomorrow.
And finally, the BBC’s Tony Blackburn is hosting Radio 2‘s Pick of the Pops tomorrow and featuring music hits from 1963 and 1988, two pretty good years in rock. The show starts at 1pm BST/8am ET.
