Storm Surge of Reverb finds its way to you via Tulane University's radio station WTUL. Tulane does supply funding to WTUL but the majority is paid for by listeners pledging money to keep it running. Without that money, Tulane might start wondering why exactly they pour so much money into this radio station, and sell us off to become an NPR station. No weird radio in New Orleans, and especially no instro radio. No Storm Surge of Reverb.

Surf has inarguably found its way far past the borders of the US let alone California. Even in the 60s, many different cultures across the globe showed that they were listening to The Ventures or The Shadows. However, the most populous nation on the planet is almost completely devoid of surf or instrumental rock & roll both now and historically. Even Malaysia had a surprisingly strong Shadows-influenced scene, but it never caught on in China.
