The Sounds Of Summer- Day 25 of 95- “Pipeline”- The Chantays. The Chantays were a surf rock band from Santa Ana in  Orange County, California. The five members were high school friends who formed the band in 1961. Pipeline is a surfing term for the curl of the wave before it breaks. “Pipeline” written by band members Bob Spickard and Brian Carman. This would be their one and only Hot 100 single- peaking at #4 in 1963. They would be the only rock band to appear of The Lawrence Welk Show. I don’t know if that did much to add to their street cred.

  1. Oh my gosh! Lawrence Welk! My husband and I sometimes watch about 15 minutes of his show on PBS for laughs. Hilarious. This guy…He’s scary, Lawrence Welk. He was a right wing, culture warrior to the max. He was extremely controlling with his band. I mean, he got involved with their personal life and stuff. If he found out you were having an affair on your spouse, he booted you. He got into stuff that wasn’t his business at all. But at the same time he paid his musicians very well–and he got only the best musicians…At least the best that were willing to tow the line.
    Pipeline is awesome, by the way. Ha! Speaking of by the way…You haven’t been by my site lately? What’s the dealio?

    • I looked- I haven’t seen your posts coming up on my cycle of posts recently? I have no idea why they haven’t been? … Welk- A different era for sure. I would watch him back in the day when at my grandparents- not that I was caring to watch it but my grandma liked him- that music.

    • For me, Saturday Night Live has always been hit and miss, glory days or not. I was always more SCTV, but, anyway, Kristen Wigg’s character Doonise is a character on The Lawrence Welk show. It’s wickedly funny.
