Contour List Plot on Surface of Sphere?

I want to plot contours of frequency on a spherical surface from a
table of data {theta,phi,frequency} where theta and phi are standard
spherical polar coordinates. These contours will be curves on the
surface of a sphere. Can Mathematica do such a plot? If yes, how? As
far as i know, Mathematica can do contours of f(theta,phi) on a sphere
but can I equally well plot a table of data? Thanks for any help.
