Live Broadcast Debut of our 30 new songs in the new play list!

We will be broadcasting LIVE on Monday, 01/22 @ 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST to premiere our new songs in the new play list.  All 30 new songs will play back to back, and all of the new songs are straight from YOUR write in suggestions!  We have also combed the “Song That Makes Me Think of BBM” and “Songs Related to BBM” threads and we’ve hand picked a few songs posted in those threads also.  Did your song suggestion or post get chosen for BBM Radio perhaps?  TUNE IN LIVE Monday 01/22 @ 9:00pm EST/6:00pm PST to hear all the new songs back to back, and to see if your song suggestion was chosen.  We will also repeat the Live Broadcast with all the new tunes back to back once again at 12mid EST/9:00pm PST.  The new play list with all the new songs added will then go into random shuffle on Tuesday 01/23.


Out with the old

In order to make way for our new songs, and to keep BBM Radio fresh and exciting, we must rotate out some of the older songs.  Decisions on which songs to rotate out are based on YOUR feedback and voting ratings.  Here are the songs that are going to be rotated out of the play list.  Your last chance to hear these songs on BBM Radio will be through Sunday 01/21.

OUT:
Lori Carson – Glimmer
Acoustic Eidolon – Simpler Times
Lamb – Gabriel
Barbara Streisand – Somewhere
Blue – Sorry Seems To Be the Hardest Word
Dana Glover – A Reason
Lori Carson – Grey World
The Dream Academy – Edge of Forever
Celine Dion – A New Day Has Come
Gustavo Santaolalla – Iguazu (Babel)
Michael Gulezian – Michael Hedges Goes To Heaven

Additionally, here are the most recent Top Lowest Rated Tracks.  If additional space is needed to rotate in the new play list, these songs will be rotated out as well.

Josh Groban – To Where You Are
Paul Van Dyk – The Other Side
Phil Collins – Against All Odds
Waylon Jennings – It’s So Easy
Dido – Take My Hand
Heather Nova – Heart & Shoulder

Agree or disagree that these should be the lowest rated tracks?  Tune in and vote for your favorite songs today!


Trivia:  Y-O-U “Moviekiss” in Century Theatres during BBM

The song “Moviekiss” by Y-O-U was played at all Century Theatres locations before BBM was started during their pre-show intermission program.  I can still remember hearing the “Century Lady” announcing the song:  “From their self-titled album, and their website pleaserock.com, here’s Y-O-U with “Moviekiss.”  The song was most appropriate for BBM!

I Want A Moviekiss From You, Darlin'.
I Want It To Be True.
I Want A Moviekiss From You, Darlin', I Do.
A Picture Won't Lie.
It's Just A Silhouette In The Moonlight.
The Camera's Not Too Close.
A Spark Between Us Passes In The Darkness.
Now Everyone Knows.

I Want A Moviekiss From You Darlin'.
Raw And Unproduced.
The Whispers And The Snaps Of The Windy Night.
The Light In Your Eyes Reminds Me Of The First Time I Saw You.
You Seemed So Far Away.
Now You Couldn't Be Any Nearer,
But The Feeling's The Same.

My Head's In The Clouds.
How Do You Do It Darlin'?
My Head's In The Clouds Because Of You.

I Want A Moviekiss From You, Darlin'.
We Won't Have To Pretend.
It Can Be As Grand As We Make It,
Again And Again.
Is That Too Much To Ask Of You, Darlin'?
To Outshine All The Stars?
You Know I Wouldn't Ask You To Do Something
That I Wouldn't Do.

My Head's In The Clouds.
How Do You Do It Darlin'?
My Head's In The Clouds Because Of You.
My Head's In The Clouds.
How Do You Do It Darlin'?
My Head's In The Clouds Because Of You.

I Want A Moviekiss From You, Darlin'.

Neighbors (Translation by Natali, Opinionista, courtesy of Lynne)

How pretty it is
to board on a plane
to arrive later
Where they hope to see you
your dear friends
from your soul, neighbors
And to take a stroll afterwards
To where it isn’t the same
Of another color
With another flavor
 Different paths
from your soul… neighbors
And there are so many people
All different
that more than one can give
Lives are needed
To know, to learn
Every lessons
the observations
and the directions
of our neighbors

Suddenly you realize
that you love them
even if they aren’t there
within you they go
Any tenant
An old neighbor
and after returning
because we need to grow up
and we have to share
the will to live
histories, destinies
your new neighbors
Lives are needed
To know, to learn
Every lessons
the observations
and the directions
of our neighbors



We hope you have enjoyed this edition of the BBM Radio Newsletter.  Your ideas and input are highly valued and appreciated.  This is YOUR radio station.  Please tell us how we can keep you listening longer, and keep Jack & Ennis in our hearts and in our dreams.

Great newsletter, Eric :). Thank you for it. I'll check out the youtube videos one by one. Don't want to overdose  ;D.

Big, big thank you for throwing Celine Dion OUT. Can't stand her.

I've signed up to Live365/BBM radio two times, to be able to vo-hooote. But both time I never recieved an activation email. So I still can't log in and vote  >:(.

Did anybody else have problems with signing up/getting an activation email?

Great newsletter, Eric!   :)   I agree that your picture should be included.

I had no idea there were so many videos!  Thank God I now have DSL!!  I just watched/listened to about four of them and I got that old sense of joy and release; the keyboard sometimes wet!

Is there anything interesting up there in heaven?
