Catching A Wave 03-18-24


The first day of Spring is just around the corner (March 19th) so if the warmer temps don't put you in a good mood yet, this hour of tunes on Catching A Wave definitely will! We hear a tune from Danny Amis & Twin Tones from an album celebrating it's 10th anniversary in our Good Time segment. Beth Riley has a deep track from America's band The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break. We board the Catching A Wave Time Machine for the week of March 5th, 1965 to hear some songs on the chart for WLS Chicago that week (including their #1 song). We pay tribute to our friend J.M. Van Eaton who passed away on Feb. 9th, 2024. He was the drummer on so much great music for Sun Records (Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Lee Riley, Charlie Rich, Bill Justis and so many more)! There's a rare track from an album he did with Billy Lee Riley in the early 90's. Plus, there's rockers from Pearl Jam, His Lordship, The Malibooz (being inducted in the California Music Hall Of Fame on April 14th as well as Walter Egan as a solo artist), The Meteoroids, Fever Drive, The Hillbilly Moon Explosion, El Castillo, The MIA, My Dusty Raygun, The Seismics and Little Kahuna!
