Zenith Record Player Pop the Hood Zenith H664 Record Player bakelite

Pop the hood of this Zenith H664, check the high-torque tone arm, close ‘er up, and take it for a test spin.

Surfaris album cover cropped B

This group came along after the Beach Boys confirmed their A-side /B-side single format by showing surfboards on a Woodie on their first album cover (as they surveyed the ocean). Hot Rods and boards. And sometimes girls. But the group shown above was to the Beach Boys what the Dave Clark Five was to the Beatles. Name the group. Hint: borrow some syllables from the Beach Boys first big national hit Surfin’ Safari.

Thanks to BidTrenz Collectable for the inbound link.
