Brian Wilson Visits The Morning Show!

Today we were honored to have music legend and K-EARTH 101 artist Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys join us this morning. First we asked Brian about the new Snoop Dogg Katy Perry song,  “California Girls” which he said he had not heard, but after we played it for him he said he love it.

Brian also has a new album coming out today titled Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin, which the L.A. Times described as  “An undeniably fresh perspective on some of the most widely recorded music in history.”  In the new album Brian puts his own spin on some of the classic standards in American history, such as, “They can’t take that away from me” and “I’ve got a crush on you.”  Once again big thanks to a true musical icon for taking time out of his busy schedule to join us this morning. Check out the entire interview and watch the video.

  • Michael

    Glad I’m able to watch this. Brian sounds and looks great, and the new album seems spectacular.

    I miss you guys at K-Earth. We’re not allowed to listen to you here in Europe anymore for some reason, which is a real letdown. Me and my gf used to tune in every night and be just in time to catch Charlie Tuna.

    Glad to see you guys are going strong even if we can’t listen anymore.

  • Justin

    The new album is fabulous. This album proves yet again, that Brian Wilson at age 65 or however old now, is still a force. Brian’s music contributions are equal to those of Gershwin, and Mozart and Beethoven.

  • peter mcaleer

    Thanks everyone for all the comments! We’ve had Brian on several times over the past few years, and it’s always a treat! On a personal note, it’s a privilege to be able to say “thank you” to the guy who wrote some of my favorite songs!

    Great interview and music! As an east coast fan of K-EARTH 101, I visit your website frequently and listen frequently.When in L.A., you are the ONLY station I listen to. Would be great to have a 50th reunion of the Beach Boys. I have seen them several times, and always enjoy their concerts.
