The Dennis Wilson Podcast Episode 1

Posted by Podmaster On May - 23 - 2008


We are now happy to launch this three-part podcast series celebrating the 2-CD Legacy Edition of DENNIS WILSON – PACIFIC OCEAN BLUE in stores from Caribou/Epic/Legacy on June 17. This 1977 album was the first solo release by any of the Wilson brothers and is widely regarded as one of the great lost gems of the late 1970s. The life and music of Dennis Wilson is a a rarely-told, though absolutely essential chapter in the history of the Beach Boys and the Wilson family.

Wilson’s close friends, family and collaborators – including Brian Wilson – discuss how his musical passions both reflected and contradicted his hard, fast lifestyle. We also hear from Dennis, himself, in excerpts of a 1977 radio interview.

The show is hosted by another great drummer named Dennis…Dennis Diken of the Smithereens, who has also authored liner notes for many of the recent Beach Boys CD reissues.



More details about this release are online here and here.
