The Midweek Hop - Ride Your Woodie to the Surf

A weekly musical feature inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round'
 
 
'Balami I200' 1957 Jukebox
'Balami I200' 1957 Jukebox

 
This weeks theme is...Ride Your Woodie to the Surf
 
Inspired by the very last ever Run To The Sun (RTTS) Festival, held last weekend near Newquay.
 
 
 
1. Little Deuce Coupe by The Beach Boys

Early 1960's California - hot rods, sunshine, surfing and plenty of girls!
'Little Deuce Coupe' was the B-side to 'Surfer Girl' which entered the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart on 3rd August 1963 reaching Number 7


2. Wipeout by The Surfaris

A wipeout is a spectacular fall from your surfboard; The Surfaris certainly stayed afloat riding high in the chart!
'Wipeout' entered the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 1963 reaching Number 2


3. Pipeline by The Chantays

The classic Hawaiian wave - the one every surfer wants to ride...
'Pipeline' entered the chart on 18th April 1963 reaching Number 16


Happy listening!
