Quality Radio Productions Debuts New Series

Quality Radio Productions is pleased to debut a brand new radio series, the first new QRP creation since its inception back in 2009.

QRP presents Something Beautiful. This series will feature familiar popular songs done in a lush, relaxing orchestral setting. This music has often been called Easy Listening, Lounge Music, Elevator Music (unfortunately), and, in radio lingo, it was known for a long time as "Beautiful Music". Hence why this series is called Something Beautiful. This music is seldom heard on the radio these days, and I want to change that in whatever small way I possibly can.

Like all other QRP offerings, Something Beautiful will be produced as time allows. Shows will be approximately 59 minutes in length, and will be available in mp3 format. Unlike other QRP music programs, Something Beautiful will feature two extended sets of music with very little talk. This was how most Beautiful Music radio stations were programmed during the 1960s and 70s, then this music was at its peak.

I hope you will enjoy this new series. As always, any radio station may take this series absolutely free of charge. If you like what you hear, please share these programs with your friends.

So, sit back, relax, and enjoy Something Beautiful from Quality Radio Productions.
