I am so thankful that I can listen to The Surf 24/7. There is no other station anywhere that can outshine 94.9. Thank you Ted Bell for your love of the music and your appreciation for the listeners.

If you are so pleased with the announcers in the 3-6 time slot. why are you constantly changing them? Also, why does you current guy complain that no one calls in responce to his offers for a prize....I think that it is time for certain people to put their grudges on the shelf them and give the listeners the person that they went at that time slot.
**** from The Surf: While we cannot and will not discuss personnel individually, we are indeed pleased with all three of our regular hosts. We will however, respond to your "grudge" comment. We don't have any grudges against anyone. Life is too short for such things. If you are referring to anyone who has been a past dj on the Surf, we hold everyone in high regard for their knowledge of Carolina Beach Music and their devotion to it. Every day we hear from many people who give us their input, and all of it is appreciated. Bill

Listen to you from Richmond, VA. Visit NMB as often as I can. But when I can't get down there, I still have you with me! Great station. * * * from the Surf: Thank you so very much!

Is your server down today? That's the message I'm getting when I click on "listen live." *** from the Surf: All ok on this end. Streaming up and running; no problems. Sometimes you can have an outage in a particular area of your internet provider. If you continue to have no signal, please let us know.

I may live in Greensboro NC, but my heart is in NMB. Thanks to 94.9 The Surf for keeping me updated on the "goings-on" at the beach. I tune in daily from work, and can't make it through my work days without the Skipper and Ted Bell!

The Band Of OZ senior member gave me your info.

Last week I had major one time high intensity radiation for a brain tumor. A friend let me stay at his house on Pawley's Island to recoup
and found you guys on radio. What a JOY.

Now back in Atlanta listening to you guys on my laptop everyday now.

Keep tunes coming, helped me through rough time this week.

All the best from "hot lanta"

For those of you who want to listen to The Surf on your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad...I use an app called "ooTunes Radio". I had them add The Surf to their streams a few years back and it still works with the new Surf. The only difference is that The Surf no longer streams in stereo...it's mono...just as it is on your computer.

Does anyone know who sings "(So Long) Since I Felt this way". I hear on 94.9 but don't recognize the artist. ******from the Surf: It's Russell Tompkins, Jr., who was the lead singer for the Stylistics.

Sharon and Woody 11-25-2011 09:45 pm
Whoever is in charge of the music this afternoon is doing a GREAT job! We are loving the "newer" beach music you are playing. Great listening while traveling back home from the beach. We listen to the surf online at home and on the radio while at the beach. Awesome selections today.
Sharon and Woody (faithful listeners)

Have been listening all day. Haven't heard any Rick Strickland or Lesa Hudson. They are both in your top 20 and I requested songs yesterday...never heard When You Look at Me or Just So You Know. How about playing some for us. Sharon and Woody

Hey, I spend 6 mos during the Summer and Winter in Cape Coral, fL. The Surf is my
main contact with the beach while I am away. Glad that Jason has finally got a position with the staion. To all my friends at Fat Harolds. Ike
Mike Davis 11-21-2011 02:53 am
I really enjoy listening to your station. I hope that you can bring back the voting for the top songs. Also, please bring back the song being listed on the website. It's really hard for those who live out of the Carolinas to keep up with the top songs without these items.
Harry and Gladys from Woodbridge, VA 11-18-2011 05:20 pm
Enjoy listening from Woodbridge, VA (22 miles south of Washsington, D.C.). We love beach music. Hope to retire soon to NMB/MB, SC. Thanks for your station!!

Congratulations to Ted Bell who was once again named as the FM DJ of the year at the Carolinas Beach Music Awards this past weekend at the Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach! Additionally, Ted's Top 20 Countdown show was also named the Beach Music "Program of the Year." This was a terrific awards ceremony show, but I was disappointed that 94.9 The Surf did not win FM Station of the Year. * * * * From the Surf; thank you so much for your comments. Concerning the station of the year award, the way it works.....The Surf was inducted into the "Hall of Fame" and that means it no longer competes for a yearly award. The Hall of Fame overrides yearly considerations. We are very proud of Ted and our whole crew as well.
