If you love Beach Music every single day of your life, there’s good news.
SiriusXM satellite radio announced a new radio station called “Carolina Shag” featuring Beach Music.
Carolina Shag will be on Channel 13 starting today through July 5.
The new radio station promises to play Beach Music classics by The Drifters, Billy Stewart, Jackie Wilson, The Catalinas, Fantastic Shakes, The Band of Oz and The Embers.
Beach Music got its start in the Carolinas after World War II, and Myrtle Beach soon a mecca for the genre.
Beach Music then gave birth to the “shag” dance, winning its way into the hearts of South Carolinians and becoming the official state dance.
