Listen for the replay to win 2 tickets to Wet & Wild Water World.  Caller number ten at 527 1011 wins.

 

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a duo who very early in their career recorded a
song about a little girl who would one day grow up to marry a rock and roll superstar.  That was not what the song was about – that was what happened in real life. 

Back to that in a moment…but first, these two guys got started in their high school gym because of the great echo for singing.  They started touring in California and the Beach Boys – who were a self contained band – backed them up.  They collaborated with Brian Wilson who co-wrote today’s featured song.  But before that they recorded a song written in 1944 by Jack Lawrence about the baby daughter of a friend.  Her name was Linda – Linda Eastman who would grow up to marry Paul McCartney.  That proved to be an interesting footnote but not a hit.  But on July 19, 1963 they had a huge hit when it reached number one for Jan and Dean “Surf City.”
