Catching A Wave 03-04-24


The Surfrajettes and Chet Atkins both take on a classic from The Beatles in our Head 2 Head segment on this new Catching A Wave. Beth Riley has a deep track from The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break. We hear a tune from an album by The Challengers celebrating it's 60th Anniversary in our Good Time segment. We tell you about an upcoming "Favorite Song Countdown" coming later this year for Dick Dale. The Jammin' James Jukebox selection of the week is a cover of a Dick Dale classic too! We remember Melinda Ledbetter Wilson who passed away on January 30th with a beautiful tune by her husband, Brian Wilson ("Forever She'll Be My Surfer Girl"). Plus, there's tracks by The Courettes, Martin Cilia, The Vaccines, The Beatersband, Mr. Cesar, Yalisco, Los Twangheads, The Frigidaires, Sys Malakian feat.
