“Tourism on Florida’s Historic Coast provides over 33,000 local jobs, and we are always looking for unique ways to support our thriving community of tourism and hospitality professionals,” says Susan Philips, President and Chief Executive Officer at the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches Visitors and Convention Bureau. “Many of those workers are tied to the local music scene. Our nightly live music, exciting music festivals, and larger name shows attract hundreds of thousands of guests annually. With these new radio stations, visitors can experience the music, inspiring them for their next visit or evoking memories of a past one.”

The radio stations reflect various musical experiences in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches. The Sounds of the Historic Coast station features some of the region’s favorite local musicians. Location-specific stations feature local performers who regularly play at restaurants and venues, including The Original Café Eleven and Colonial Oak Music Park.
