We are working hard to expand the Surf Rock Radio music library and we are very pleased to say that from May 2017 we will have a 3 terrabyte library. This is enough to store every surf tune ever released since 1961 in 320 kbps mp3 format. However, in order to make the upgrade we will have to change the url of the stream itself. This will probably not affect those of you who listen via the surfrockradio.com website or tunein, but it will affect those that use an external application like itunes or windows media player that are listening via a .pls or .m3u file.
The new url will be http://surfrockradio.com:9996 for the 128kbps stream.
We also have the capability to offer a higher resolution 192 kbps and AAC+ stream but we will ask listeners if this is something that they would like to use. if the response is positive we will go ahead and offer it.

Halloween is a great time for surf tunes, the spooky reverb, theramin and bone shakin'' rhythms go hand in hand. As always Surf Rock Radio is about quality over quantity so we are not going to overdo Halloween, but we will give you an expertly curated selection of creepy vintage surf and the best contemporary horror surf from bands including The Grande Bois, The Terrorsurfs, The Alder Kings, The Tsunamibots, King Beez, Blackball Bandits, The Tiki Creeps and The Delstroyers and soooo many more.
The mix will get progressively more spooky as we approach the 31st, so for the time being it's ok for teenagers to listen. And on 31st, Surf Rock Radio has your Halloween party soundtrack covered! With a much requested feature - no darn talking between expertly mixed tracks !
