Catching A Wave 12-27-21

We're toward the end of 2021 and already talking about April Showers (new Los Straitjackets) plus killer tracks from The Green Reflectors, The Explorers Club, Surfer Joe, Goons!, The Bomboras, The Desolate Coast, La Luz, The Incomprehensible Static, The Cranzers, Tiki Riot & more!  We have a trio of tunes with a Banzai theme from Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, The Astronauts and Atomic Mosquitos.  Beth Riley has a deep track from The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break.  We board the Time Machine for the week ending November 5, 1988 and we drop a coin in the Jammin' James Jukebox to hear our selection of the week!
