We remember Elvis who passed away August 16th, 1977 with a track from the King (from Blue Hawaii celebrating it's 60th anniversary), Johnny Ramone with Danny B. Harvey & Slim Jim Phantom (with a rockin' instrumental) and Dean Z (with a cover of a tune originally heard from Fun In Acapulco). We also spin the Wheel Of Fun, Fun, Fun to hear some great covers of The Beach Boys by The Grip Weeds (from the new Jem Records tribute to Brian Wilson), The Martian Denny Orchestra and Jan & Dean. Beth Riley has a great deep track of The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break and we'll drop a quarter in the Jammin' James Jukebox to hear our selection of the week. Plus, we've got rockers from Didi Wray (covering Blondie), The Halibuts, The Coffin Daggers, Los Blue Marinos, The Charades, Girl Over Planet, The Metalunas, The Guantanamos, Trevor Lake and The Trashmen!!
