BumbleBee Radio Holiday Hundred: 12/31/2021 & 1/1/2022

Updated: Jan 4


The second-ever BumbleBee Radio New Year's celebration is in the books and I have to say that was tremendously FUN to share the airwaves with my Boston radio friends Jim Ryan, D-Tension, Anngelle Wood, Michael Marotta, and Julie Kramer! The idea popped-into my head back in August and for awhile I wasn't sure I could ever make it happen. As we go forward in 2022, my advice to anyone with a dream they may think is unattainable is GO FOR IT! Never say something is impossible.

There were SO MANY great songs that came out in 2021... Choosing 100 favorites was excruciatingly difficult and putting them in-order was well... impossible. There was also a ton of great memories from getting to go out and see LIVE music again as the vaccines arrived and venues started to reopen. Thank you to all the bands and artists who created music in 2021. Without your creativity & perseverance in the face of all the challenges we have faced since the pandemic struck, BumbleBee Radio wouldn't even exist!


When I created BumbleBee Radio in April of 2020, I decided to go-for-it on a lifelong dream of owning and running a radio station my way. That means MUSIC comes first, second, and last. That means homegrown local music gets played side-by-side with major label artists. Most importantly, my vision for what BumbleBee Radio should be is based around a group of talented insightful radio professionals who excel at telling stories and connecting with listeners on an individual level. That's why I fell-in-love with radio at age-four in 1974. The voices that came out of my little AM transistor radio were my friends and companions. Going forward I want to find a way to FILL this radio station with people you'll come to know as YOUR friends. I can't think of a better time to start than right here... Right now in 2022! Thank you so much for listening to BumbleBee Radio in 2021... I am honored to have YOU as a friend and listener! -Kristen
