In the classics "Surfin' Safari" and "Surfin' U.S.A.," the Beach Boys immortalized Southern California's beaches for the pop music world. Among the sites mentioned in the lyrics are Huntington, Laguna, Doheny, La Jolla and Malibu -- almost an inventory of the lower West Coast. America's greatest surf band didn't name Newport Beach in either song, but on Sunday, Mike Love and his cohorts will play a major role in the city's history. The first event in the city's yearlong 100th birthday celebration, Let's Do Launch, to be held at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort, will climax with a performance by the Beach Boys on a stage overlooking the sea. For Love, the only remaining member of the original band, it's familiar territory.

Technology has done wonders for travel over the past few years, and you need to look no further than the Internet to see how you probably have changed the way you once made hotel bookings or decided where to go on that special getaway weekend. An array of travel options awaits you online, and you now can book your whole trip with the simple click of a mouse. For techno-geeks, the next frontier is GPS travel and already you read and hear about GPS users who meet up on the Internet and then make a game out of finding specific locations using latitude and longitude.

"They were looking for a band that was almost as old as Newport," joked Beach Boy Mike Love during a press briefing before the show. He added that it didn't take much convincing to get the Beach Boys to headline the concert, which was held at Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort on Sunday.

As Chubby Checker sees it, his version of "The Twist" and the dance of the same name changed music history back in 1960. The song was originally sung by Hank Ballard, and then someone passed it along to Checker, who put his spin on it. "I just happened to be in the right place at the right time," Checker said Monday. The kids in his neighborhood were already doing the dance when his band recorded it in 1959, he said. Checker promoted it for what seemed like forever throughout the eastern United States, urging disc jockeys to play it, giving interviews about it and live performances of it. The song's popularity took off when 19-year-old Checker appeared on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand" in 1960.
