Oh Yeah! It’s Trivia Tuesday for October 22nd. Brought to us each week by the very cool folks at Omnivore Recordings! Thee place for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know!  However, before we get to this week’s question, we’d like to recognize the band of brilliant readers who correctly answered last week’s question, which was: an Anagram, “Ogreish Groaner” unscrambles to become, “The Quiet Beatle” George Harrison! First in and nailing it early is fast Fred Vogel ! Way to rock Fred! Next up was Owen! Great seeing you back again Owen! And, once more Fast Freddie wins a way Cool Omnivore CD! 

But now, it’s time for this week’s Trivia Question: This week, we’d like you to give us the names of at least Five members of The Beach Boy’s either past or present who are NOT related to the Wilson Brothers? Additionally we want the title of the band’s first single? And for big SMS Extra Credit, we’d like to know the title of the ‘B’ side? And what label it was released on?

In Summary, here’s what we need:

1) The names of at least 5 current or former Beach Boys who are not related to the Wilson Bros?

And remember, you can answer the weekly Trivia Quiz as often as you like, but can only win a Groovey Omnivore CD, every two weeks!


  1. Tough one this week (for me, at least). Bruce Johnston and Al Jardine are the only certainties. I know Glen Campbell did some studio work and some touring with the hodads but I don’t know if he was ever considered a member. On the last two, I’ll take a flyer with Bud Abbott and Willie Shoemaker.
    “Surfin'” was their first single but I have no idea what the B side was or the record company(I guess I could Google it, but that wouldn’t be fair).

    • Hey Fred,
      Bud Abbott and Willie Shoemaker? Why, whatever do you Mean? YOU are a funny guy!
      Thanx for playing along! There’s always next Tuesday!

  2. Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, Ricky Fataar, Blondie Chaplin and David Marks
    “Surfin” was first hit and flip side was “Luau”
    The label was under Candix Records

    • You can add Glen Campbell, “Captain Keyboards” Daryl Dragon and John Stamos to the touring group.
