the encore show - best of the 60s & 70s

interviews with icons from the greatest musical era

EPISODE 14 - When Bob Berryhill and his Surfaris recorded the all-time surf hit “Wipeout”, he was only fifteen years old and they made the record for a hundred and fifty bucks in an old hole-in-the wall studio in Cucamonga, CA. “Wipeout” was originally the B side of that record; the A side was a song called “Surfer Joe”. No matter – both songs became hits in the early Sixties and this week we’re talking with Bob Berryhill, the original guitarist for the Surfaris who are still performing today.
