Crossroads Radio

Leo's charicature

Welcome to Crossroads Radio

Jane and I created this radio station to offer something different on our blog. We’re streaming music live 24 hours a day and it’s free!

 

Click Here to enjoy Crossroads Radio on iPhone, iPad, or by using iTunes or Winamp player
or
Listen on Android mobile device
Otherwise, enjoy the live streaming on this page.

 

This is music we like. It’s Beach, Boogie, and More.

shag dance logo

What is Beach Music?

To put it simply, it’s anything you can shag to.

 

What is The Shag?

The Shag is the official state dance of South Carolina. It developed along the coast of the Carolinas during the 1950s combining some fancy footwork to upbeat rhythm and blues music. Take a look here at the 2012 Pro Division National Champions.

 

 

What is Boogie?

It’s a style of blues piano playing characterized by an up-tempo rhythm. It’s happy music that makes you want to move.

What is More?

That simply comes down to any music that Jane and I like. If we like it, we play it. You never know what you might hear. After a 38 year career as a radio announcer and ¬†an honorary member of the Shag DJ Hall of Fame, I feel comfortable hand-picking the music you’ll hear on Crossroads Radio. By the way, I’m training a new DJ. Her name is Jane and she’s pretty good.

I had to go in the hospital back then, and y’all dedicated an entire morning show to me, , and mailed the tape of the show to me. I dubbed the entire show onto a CD, and it brings back fond memories, and it was really nice of y’all to do this for me.

Leo, I hate to bring this up to you but do you realize that these songs are the same ones we were listening to back in the sixties and for some reason they sound just as good now as they did while cruising around that parking lot up there on Main Street known as Doug Broomes Drive In and if I had to say so the food here at the house is a little better tasting because this food is cooked with love, no wait a minute, it is cooked with something else but she adds a lot of love when she does cook the food….Went in the Coast Guard for 22 years and was very surprised to come home and hear you and Woody still on the air and have been a big listener every chance I get…Retired from the work force also, so got lots of time on my hands..love the music and the reason I hate to bring it up to you is that I know you are as busy as a one armed paper hanger

So glad I found your station. Great music from two wonderful people (yes Leo I included you in the “wonderful” category). Haven’t seen you in a long time – hopefully we will cross paths soon. Keep up the good work and again thanks for the music. I can’t get enough.

Finally found the Windham family. Years ago I taped music from :The Breeze: Beach, Boogie and Blues. at Awendaw,SC. At that time I was living on James Island,SC. I am originally from Folly Beach,SC and grew up shagging and listening to the music you all play. Back in the nineties Leo and Woody taped a program for my husband who was living in Lecompton,Kansas. We were both taking care of elderly parents and were living apart at the time. I wanted him to be familiar with the music I grew up with.Thank you for all you do.
Fondly,
Barbara Johnson

Gone are the days of the Woody With The Goodies “Hoparoonies” and the magic of the 60′s but you are certainly doing a marvelous job of bringing the memories back.
I am in Charleston and also remember your Oldies 102.5 days..
Good luck, great job, rock on!!

Leo, I doubt that you remember me but I know you. I went to Lamar and grew up in Oates, I am the younger sister of Robert and Allen James. I did not realize that you lived in your old home.

Where have I been hiding, tonight is the first I’ve heard of your station and I am already in love. I have a 33 yo son who loves beach music and he has a 12 & 4 yo that love it as well, actually they love some CCR and a variety of music. I have shared this on FB so hopefully you will get even more listeners.

I loved your Christmas decoration “HOE,HOE,HOE” so cute. I am impressed with the creativity of you and your wife.

Thanks, Ethel James Johnson

Hi, I now live in Jersey and NO ONE knows how to do this type of dancing. Philly dancing was different in the day and couldn’t come close to DC (although they tried) — American Bandstand and all!! I’m from the DC hand group and absolutely love shag. Just a tad different from the DC hand dance but shag is actually fancier. Your music is soooo perfect for all hand dancers. Thank you for sharing.

You can’t imagine how much pleasure you have given me through your website. Cherry and I moved to North Georgia in 2004 and we miss all the folks from all the shag clubs. I miss you guys something fierce, but we are adapting to north Georgia. We have thousands of pictures and videos of our friends shagging at the club and at Pivot’s and Myrtle Beach. I will be coming to Charleston soon to promote my new book “Lethe” “The Life and Times of Dr. John de la Howe.” He was a Charleston Surgeon during the American Revolution. When the war was over, he moved two hundred miles north after amassing 2600 acres of land. Upon his death in 1797 he left the land to be used as a manual training school for poor boys and girls. Cherry and I both graduated from there in 1962. The book is all about Charleston history during the Revolution. Even if you lived in Charleston all your life like I did, you will learn things you didn’t know. May God continue to bless this station and again, Thanks for the memories.
