    BRIAN WILSON PRESENTS SMILE

    BRIAN WILSON PRESENTS SMILE

    It’s the 2000’s, and Brian Wilson is having a bit of a renaissance. With so much attention to Pet Sounds and the lives shows surrounding them, he decided to revisit the nadir of his career. 
    In 1966 “Smile” was to be to The Beach Boys what “Sgt. Pepper “was to the Beatles, an artistic statement and triumph, but it never happened. Due to drug use, mental collapse, and pushback from the record company and certain band members, Brian went into a tailspin that he could never pull out of. 
    In 2004 Brian Wilson, with the help of Van Dyke Parks and members of The Wondermints Wilson returned to Smile and completed it. Was it worth the wait? Listen and hear what we think.

    KASENETZ-KATZ SINGING ORCHESTRAL CIRCUS & THE TURTLES PRESENT THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS

    We return to the late 60s to check out the bubblegum scene and those who participated and those who spoofed it. For a very special daylight savings time episode, we look at 2 albums. The first is the Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus and its parody The Turtles Present The Battle of The Bands. Both are from 1968.

    XTC / SKYLARKING

    XTC / SKYLARKING

    We go back to 1986 to look at this classic (and possibly best) album by XTC. Recording under duress with Todd Rundgren producing, the band records an album full of clever pop hooks, string and horn arrangements, and great lyrics. The group discussed and realized that the '80s weren't all Madonna and a Flock of Seagulls.

    THE WHO - SELL OUT

    THE WHO - SELL OUT

    We travel back to 1967, and The Who pays tribute to the then-defunct pirate radio stations who brought excitement and rock and roll to a pre-BBC Radio One audience. This is also the closest the band got to psychedelia in the musical sense, but it was the first step to "Tommy" and the success which eluded them for most of the ’60s
