Surfabilly Freakout Radio hit the airwaves in May of 2006 on WPGU 107.1 FM in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. The show features surf, garage, psychobilly, rockabilly, and spaghetti western music performed (mostly) by modern bands. The CD is high-energy from start to finish with a sound reflective of the radio show. The fantastic band line-up includes The Cocktail Preachers, The Madeira, The Coffin Daggers, The Nebulas, 9th Wave, Daikaiju, The Creepy Creeps, Go! Tsunami, The Men from S.P.E.C.T.R.E., the Mutants, The Heavies, Knuckel Drager, The Love Me Nots, The Brains, The Koffin Kats, the Krank Daddies, The Phantom Jets, The Phenomenauts & Vegas 66!

Surfabilly Freakout Radio is definitely about the music, but it was apparent early-on that there would be more... this part that we refer to as "Jackassery, Tom Foolery and Damn Fool Boobery." "Freakout Studios" (WPGU FM) has six microphones and the original DJs (Jet Sterling and Reverend Chuck Allen) were soon joined by a large cast of characters. Today, there is rarely a show when all six aren't in use (and often, there are more DJs than mics). The DJ crew, which grew early-on to include Chelsea Bandita, Koffin Keith, Motorhead Mike and the Director of Awesome expanded into booking and promoting live shows in Champaign-Urbana... often recruiting new DJs out of the crowd. Local gigs led to remote DJ/MC gigs as well as providing organizational assistance at surf, Tiki and hot rod events throughout the Midwest and on the East Coast.
For a raucous selection of surf, garage and 'billy, check out "Throttlebilly Beach Riot!". We hope you dig it!
This may be old news already, but the crowd funding site GoFundMe.com has a campaign going for The Ventures guitarist Nokie Edwards, who incurred a mountain of hospital costs in Japan.
Check it if you're interested in helping the family of the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame surf guitar legend.

PDX A Go-Go... Five bands...ten songs...that preserve a moment in time, the summer of 2012, when instrumental surf music rode the crest of a wave in Portland, OR. Musicians are forming surf bands, several venues are giving these bands a stage and an audience is growing. Duff's Garage, the club that always gave instro surf a home, is ground zero. There's an excitement about the bands and the music. Many different directions are being explored by these bands, proving that a subgenre thought by many to be one-dimensional is anything but.
The Surf Weasels, WaveSauce, Susan SurfTone, The Outer Space Heaters, and Shade 13 offer you a sample of what's going on here on the northern end of the west coast. We hope you enjoy it and that you come to a few shows. Pick up a copy of PDX A Go-Go from any of the bands on the compilation or wait until CDBaby has it in stock (we'll let you know... just check back here in a few weeks.) Tell your friends "there's a party going on here in Portland that you should know about"... come and join us.
I guess it is about time we put something on the home page about the amazing SurfGuitar101.com convention #5, which is Saturday, August 11, 2012 in Los Alamitos, California! Luckily, Jonpaul has created a great convention website with all the details: the bands, the venue, the sponsors, directions, info on raffles, a schedule, videos, and much, much more!
Please visit The Official SurfGuitar101.com Convention website!
For questions, comments, and further discussion, please visit the SG101 Convention #5 forum thread.
This year's convention is dedicated to the memory of our dear friend and surf music mega-fan, Baja Marty, who passed away recently. If you would like to give a donation to Marty's family, you can do so via Paypal. Thank you.
A big thank you to Jonpaul for creating the website.
