Listening to the radio the other day, heard an interview with some young, new band that has a surf-rock sound. Apparently, they are from South Carolina, and the beach music from there is more like raved-up Motown than the Beach Boys. Think "Shout." Got me thinking about the beach and music, and while I wasn't a beach kid, I did grow up in a beach town, and the beach really is a great place to hear music. Got me thinking about this song, imagining what it must have been like to first hear this on the AM radio in 1959... and what I'm missing out on, that surprise and delight at hearing a haunting, new melody, since I don't really listen to the radio, and I don't really listen to pop music.

May not warrant watching all 8 minutes, but here's a pretty cool old fella making some pretty old-style machinery. Love it. Courtesy JP.

Reminds me, so slightly, of The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations’ Millenium General Assembly. About that here.
