Surf’s Up June 39ers

June 39ers Singin’ Surf Tunes!

Cowabunga, dude, let’s party hearty!
Goin’ to Surf City ♪…gonna have some fun…♪  

For years I’ve been urging you to celebrate birthdays not just for a day, but all month.

So let’s head into summer with International Surf Music Month! Thinking Boomer memories of Endless Summer (1966) and Gidget (TV, 1965).

But the surf craze began influencing our music as early as June 2, 1963, with the KRLA TUNEDEX music survey, charting these great twangy surf tunes in its top 40. 

Take a stroll down Memory Lane on your way to a 39 and Holding beach blanket bingo party:
# 7         SURF CITY                       JAN & DEAN
#12        Surfin U.S.A./Shut Down    The Beach Boys
#23        Crazy Days Of Summer      Nat "King" Cole
#28        Surf Walk                          Manuel & Renegades
#32        We're Going Surfin'             The Wailers

I threw in ol’ Nat King Cole’s song, ‘cause summer and surfin’ just go together, ya know? Like adding National Flip Flop Day – June 17th – to our list of reasons to celebrate!

Of course, dear 39ers, June is also more than daddy month, Father’s Day, June 19, and Limbo Rock beach parties. Put a spotlight on your 39er birthday and theme your party with:

June 6   YoYo Day

Whether you’re channeling your inner Gemini Twins (05/21 – 06/20) or kicking sand in your Cancer Crab mood (06/21 – 07/22), there is always a reason to party hearty.

You know the old adage, “Stop to smell the roses”? They’re June’s signature flower – don’t smell just one – grab a bunch! You deserve ‘em.

Happy UN-Birthday JUNE 39ers,
(Here’s lookin’ at you, kids – 39AHC Birthday 39ers, Sally, Christine and Melanie!)
