The Surf Countdown for February 2nd demonstrates the importance of weekly voting. If you compare to previous weeks, you can see how missing a week can make a huge difference in how the songs chart. For some that are seeing this chart for the first time, I like to remind everyone that this chart is based on a 1 week voting period. Every song starts back at zero points on Saturday at Noon after the Chart is aired on 94.9 The Surf. You the Surf Listeners vote for them, we play them as you rate them.
Ups and Downs and Some Stay the Same
A total of 3 songs “Do You Know What I Mean” by the Holiday Band, “Each Morning I Wake Up” by Chairmen of the Board (Feat Ken Knox) and “I Ain’t Leaving Mississippi” by Jaye Hammer made a return to the Countdown after a week or more absence. 9 songs dropped spots this week with 6 of the 9 dropping 2 or more positions. A total of 9 songs picked up positions with 6 of the 9 picking up 2 or more positions. The largest leap was “Carolina Moon” by Sylvia Johns Ritchie with a whopping 15 spot jump from last week. 3 songs remained in the same position as last week, “Cleaning Windows” by Jim Quick and Coastline continued to hold onto the #1 spot, Come and Get Your Love” by the Entertainers with the #2 spot and “I’ll Always Love You” by the Embers (Feat Craig Woolard) remaining in the #8 position.
Chart Debut for Feature Attraction Band
The Feature Attraction Band made their chart debut this week with their song “This One’s For The People” which came in at #20.

Something has changed with Alexia on Amazon. When I ask for “The Surf radio, Myrtle Beach” I get some other station. What are the magic words with her?
Try “WVCO 94.9 The Surf”
Moving to NC has us totally confused as to why people think that Disco, Blues & Pop music is “beach” music. Coming from the beaches of the West Coast, we all knew that Beach/Surf music was by the Beach Boys, Jan & Dean, Dick Dale, The Venturers, The Safaris, etc…. who actually did beach & surf music where it originated from, in “Surf City”, Huntington Beach, CA. Can anyone explain why no one here knows this?
There are a lot of things different in California. Most everyone I know that grew up in the Carolina’s know about Carolina Beach Music. Not everyone is a fan of this music and beach music lifestyle. If you are looking for those groups, you will probably find it easier to turn the channel or website if you are listening to Internet Radio. There may be a rare occasion that 94.9 The Surf plays some tunes by those groups. You will not hear them on any kind of regular basis. 94.9 The Surf plays Carolina Beach Music and the Classic Hits.
