Catching A Wave 11-06-23


We take another trip in the Catching A Wave Time Machine this hour to hear 3 tunes from the WLS Chicago Silver Dollar Survey from the week of January 28th 1966.  There's a track from a Chris Casello Trio album celebrating it's 10th anniversary in our Good Time segment. Beth Riley has an early version of a hit song by The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break and we'll drop a coin in the Jammin' James Jukebox to hear our selection of the week (Hal Blaine). If that isn't enough, we've got killer tunes from Kitten & The Tonics, The Frigidaires, Kris Bone, Lords Of Atlantis, Fly Janet, Atomicos, Steve Miller Band, Kurt Baker, Chewbacca's, The Vaccines, Cayucas and Os Brutus!!
