My comment is also directed at John in Charlotte...If you are going to send a nasty comment to the absolute BEST Beach Music station in the COUNTRY, you should at least get your 3rd grade teacher to proof read your email before you send it and correct your mistakes in grammar, spelling, and punctuation. DUH!! If a "loyal listener" can't pardon a seldom occurring technical issue, perhaps you should look within yourself and correct the problems you might discover there!!
The Surf, Ted, Spider, and Bill FOREVER!!!

The station is doing a great job. Keep the great music playing.
The originals are the best. The imitators just dont do the originals justice. Beach music is fading because of nature. The imitators do no justice for the great inventors of beach music. Keep playing the originals and the memories will be alive.

ref: John in Charlotte. Are you mean by nature or just having a bad day? Have you never made a mistake, or had something go wrong and not turn out the way you intended? What a nasty way to make a comment! You could have said "hey guys, I'm a loyal listener and wonder what went wrong last night? It wasn't up to snuff with what I have heard for a long time from the Surf. I know you'll find out what went wrong and fix it. In other words, John, you could have been nice.

Your live remote for Sunday, August 28th had to be the worse live remote that I have ever listen to. You could just hear the songs on the internet, but Spider and Ted voice came in to loud when they spoke. Plus we (the internet audience) heard all the conversations between Ted, Spider and who you were talking to over the songs. I am a loyal internet listener and have had you on listening for well over 5 years. But I turned you off after an hour and half on Sunday the 28th. I have voted for your station for the station of the year for as long as I can recall. I will have to say that you will not get my vote this year. I really hope that any more live remotes are done better than August 28th was. It was the pits. * * * * * ** * From the Surf: We never want to displease any listener and you can be sure we'll check into whatever technical glitches took place Sunday evening. However, we must say your comments are a little odd. You state you've been a loyal listener for such a long time, but in the next sentance you say an hour and half of something that did not please you is enough to throw us under the bus!

How about a little back ground info on Skipper and Spider. Where they are from etc.
You have the perfect line up. I still miss Billy Smith *******from the Surf: Skipper came to us from a radio station in Wilmington. He's a long time broadcaster with a great attitude about the audience. He has the ability to share with listeners on a one to one basis. The Spider has been around the beach for a long time. He won't reveal his age but we can tell you he an accomplished blues musician. And he knows the beach, beach music, and he's a "people" person. We are fortunate to have the three great talents we have. Skipper in the Mornings, Ted in the mid-day, and The Spider in the afternoons!

Bring Ray Scott back he knows his beach music, bands and artist. * * * * from the Surf: We are really happy with the lineup we have and the audience response has been and continues to be wonderful.

Love listening to the surf from 3-6pm now. The addition of Spider Webb is terrific. We used to turn our radio off from 3-6 when Ted left, but now we love all three DJ's and listen all day long. Skipper,Ted and Spider are a great threesome and the music is awesome. We love 94.9 the surf!

Keep playing the great music and hope everyone "stateside" stays safe during the upcoming storms!

I find it amazing that my two favorite radio stations in the entire universe are in the same place! I've been listening to WNMB for all its great music for ten years now. It reminds me so much of the great stations that were here when I was a teenager in the 60s. I also love The Surf. Just learned to shag a couple of years ago and everytime I turn on the Surf it makes me want to dance! I listen to both stations whenever my family and I are at the beach, and I listen to your internet broadcasts here at home. Keep it coming!

Hi there, This is Patsy and I have been listening to you all afternoon. I live in Chesterfield, Va. We just had an earthquake and it was a 5.9. We are all well but it was pretty scary.

I just love North Myrtle Beach and we have spent amany a vacation down there during SOS week. Love Main Street!

Thanks for all the great Shagging songs.

Have a great day!

So glad you are back on the airwaves. The internet connection makes my work day a little sunnier!
Tom 08-22-2011 12:13 am
Miss the Freakin Deacon. He is an incredible talent! I sure hope you all can figure out a way to get him back on the air and part of the whole beach music scene.
Sue 08-21-2011 07:29 pm
Where is the Freakin Deacon? He was the lonely reason that I listened to the SURF! Monday- Friday 3-6 with the Deacon was great....like ole times. The Skipper is great too! Maybe the Skipper and Deacon could jump on Internet Radio! Now that would be a blast from the past. BTW the SURF seems not to be a powerful station b/c other stations seem to over-ride your station....maybe not up to date equipment! Come SURF don't let the beach groupies down!
**** Sue, thank you for your comments, but let us correct something. Our company has invested much in new equipment including all new audio processing, a virtually rebuilt transmitter, etc. Very few stations are as up to date. The power of the station is the same as always, and we are getting great comments on reception from places as far away as Florence, Wilmington, Lumberton etc. Reception whereever you live is going to be based on the circumstances of your specific location and your radio, antenna and so on. As to the Deacon, he's a great dj. That's why we brought him on board in the first place. But the Deacon, with our blessings, had the opportunity to better his income at the moment doing something else. We hope to bring him back at a time that's right for both he and the station in the future. Thanks for listening. If it's Carolina Beach Music you love, and the Beach music tunes from days gone by, nobody will do it better than The Surf. Oh yes.....internet radio. As you may know, we stream our website at 949thesurf.com The numbers are incredible and we are very appreciative.

Just heard about you all. I am interested in radio work in your area. Are there any jobs available. Thanks, Bob Hagen

Thanks to Bill and Susi Beach Music is back where it belongs, on 94.9 ...... Love the Skipper and Ted Bell. Did not care for the Deacon to begin with but he had started to grown on me, but is he now gone? *****from the Surf: "Spider Webb" is now doing afternoons from 3 to 6. The Deacon is a great guy and good friend. Don't be surprised to see him back. Thank you for recognizing Bill and Susi, but there are other partners in the Surf who are very important to its success. They are Jessica, Lindsey, HG and Harold Worley.

Glad the Surf is back on the air. Missed listening to good old beach music at work on the web.
Hey , how about the Surf giving Danny Woods and the Board Of Directors a good boost on the radio. Great singer , really miss him and the General with the Chairman Of The Board. The Board Of Directors is a great band also.Need to hear more of them and Danny.
