So glad to hear 94.9 is back up and running. I'll gladly bypass all of the other stations to find the great sounds of the Tams, Embers, Catalinas, Chairman of the Board, Craig Woolard Band, and the many others that connect me back to the wonderful world of Ocean Drive. Please keep your format rooted in this music. Wonderful times, wonderful place, wonderful people, and exceptional music!

We live in Fort Myers Fl and you have brought our connection to North Myrtle Beach back on the air. Thanks so very much. It is a 12 hr dr from here so we do not get up there to our favortie place to be too often. You have done a great service for a lot of people. Keep up the good work.

I've had you in my favorites list forever it seems. So glad I can put you on again and pretend I'm on vacation. I love your format and it needs to remain intact. Here in Louisville, Ky. we in The Derby City Bop Association are true fans of Beach, Shag & Blues Bop. Keep on keepin' on!

First and foremost,thanks for replying to my post. Like I said, I along with the majority of the listeners are thrilled that you're back on the air. So without trying to get arguementative with the station and it's format, I was just wondering where John Lennon's "give peace a chance" rank in the annals of Carolina Beach Music history? Cause I heard it last weekend. Couldn't really shag to that one.

***From the Surf: "Give Peace A Chance" is not in our playlist. It got played one time due to a labeling error in our music system.

Since my last comment wasn't posted,(too negative I guess). This one probably won't make it either. so here goes. Glad that the surf is back on the airwaves but not a real fan of the on air people esp "mumbles"deacon. Ted Bell is truly a professional. nothing bad about him. where are the former guys? Are these new people from wnmb? the new format sure sounds like it. 94.9 the "surf" all oldies all the time. not positive enough?

* * * from "The Surf" * Your comment may be proof that it is not possible to please everyone. We wish we could because we treasure every listener. As to where are the former guys, perhaps you mean former announcers. We hired Ted and he has performed superbly. We are proud of the overall response both Skipper and the Deacon have brought as well. All three of these guys have gotten fantastic response. As to our music, we play more Carolina Beach Music than anything else and more songs are added every day. The Surf is not WNMB and vice versa. WNMB is "oldies radio with songs from the Beach Boys to the Beatles. The Surf is Carolina Beach music and Beach music oldies. Each station has its own audience and its own strength in the marketplace. Thank you so much for commenting. If you listen, we believe you'll find The Surf is getting better every day.

Just love Deacon. He makes me smile!
Tommy 06-29-2011 08:27 pm
I gotta agree with Robert Deacon is great and a professional at what he does. He brings back memories just hearing his voice goes right along with the music from yesterday I love this Station
Harry from Atlanta 06-28-2011 09:39 pm
I just clicked on the Surf site from my old favorites list. I am absolutely THRILLED!!! to hear you back on the air. We were at NMB twice during the winter and really missed this great station. Will be there for 2 weeks in July and can't wait to have 94.9 playing at the condo again. Keep up the great work! You are the best station on the air anywhere.
Robert 06-28-2011 08:38 pm
The comment from about the Deacon from Tony is not correct.I feel he is a breath of fresh air to the surf.Keep up the good work.
Steve 06-28-2011 03:23 pm
Great to hear your back on the air.I love tuning in when Deacon's on the air. Hearing his voice and unique sense of humor reminds me of his long history in broadcasing in the 70's and 80's in Myrtle Beach.

Glad you guys are back on the air and streaming via the internet. The streaming connection is much improved form your old web site. Rock on with the beat in Carolina Beach music and oldies.
David 06-27-2011 11:42 pm
Glad your back..Love the listen link..the old website didn't have it. Also get on Social media sites please for your sponsors and the future! Facebook,twitter,etc..Listeners around the world want to hear you, and with 500 million people logging onto Facebook they need something to listen to while they surf! If you catch my drift. LOL;) There is even a facebook page titled wewant94.9onfacebook.com There is no reason not to..If the people want it, give it to them. Please.;)
