Bob Rivers - More Twisted Christmas - 1997




Here are familiar Christmas songs with funny new lyrics and arrangements. The vocals are lush thanks to multitracking and resemble The Carpenters. I think you will like.

The Stingrays




This is not the Sixties Surf group but a short-lived one circa 2000. Press play.

X MINUS ONE - 1955 to 1958




X MINUS ONE was perhaps the best science fiction series for radio with writers like Bradbury, Asimov, and Silverberg. Television took over in a few years and this golden age ended. Link in comments.

Annette - Back To The Beach - 1987



The King of the Surf Guitar, Dick Dale, performs with a young Stevie Ray Vaughn and an old Frankie Avalon. There is a catchy tune from Eddie Money and other tunes to like. And Surfin' Bird to dislike. Link in comments.

A Holiday Classic

Check out the nice harmony. Bob Rivers and company did change the lyrics a little.
