We'll hear a couple of tunes of his on this week's Catching A Wave radio show along with some covers by Reverend Horton Heat, Terreur Twist, The ChuGuysters, The Cramps, The Surfaris, Phil Keaggy and Link Wray. Plus, we talk Elvis with both Suzi Quatro (and hear an Elvis cover from her) and Wink Martindale in our Green Room Segment. Beth Riley has another great deep track from The Beach Boys in her Surf's Up: Beth's Beach Boys Break.
