Sammy Hagar has accomplished many milestones over his long career in rock and roll, and he will unveil another big achievement on New Year’s Eve.
Hagar, who grew up in Fontana and became a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, has announced a revolutionary breakthrough in rock radio, “All Up, All Rock, All Party, All the Time” streaming online from Mexico to the world.
On Monday, Dec. 31, Redheads and music fans everywhere will be able to experience “Rock Radio the Way God Intended It,” Hagar said.
Hagar will be presenting “Cabo Wabo Radio” and a live party beginning at 7 p.m. Pacific Time from the Cabo Wabo Cantina.
From that night on, the party will continue 24 hours a day, live from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
The online radio station, designed and built by co-founders Shadoe Stevens and Woody Nelson, will feature “high energy new rock, hot rock, cutting-edge, and classic rock around the clock,” Hagar said. The New Year’s Eve party will be broadcast live, featuring surprise guest stars in concert and hundreds of special guests from around the world.
“The coolest thing we can do is to expose fans to good music they’ve never heard before,” said Hagar. “If any radio station is going to get my attention in life, it’s going to be one where I’m going, ‘Who is this? I like that song. Wait a minute, who is that?’ I’ll listen to that radio station all day. That’s what Cabo Wabo Radio is all about!”
The new studios are built behind glass right next to the stage in the Cantina, making every audience part of every broadcast.
“The Cantina, an institution in Cabo for nearly 20 years and packed every night of the week, is the perfect location for the most exciting radio station in the world,” said Stevens. “People are there to party and we’ll be there to capture the excitement and deliver it to the world around the clock.”
The station will feature interviews with stars on vacation and interesting people from around the world, plus live concerts with major stars and hot new artists, Stevens said.
Hagar encourages fans to log onto http://www.cabowaboradio.com to become a V.I.P member. Members will get access to live concerts from the Cantina; concert videos, behind the scenes and unreleased videos; unreleased music and lost music from the archives; advance notices on new music and hundreds of pictures from shows from all over the world; and preferred tickets to Hagar shows.
