PET SOUNDS TURNS 50! RADIO SHOWS PLAY IT!
It's the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys' masterpiece Pet Sounds on Monday, May 16th! We're celebrating five decades of one of the most influential records in history on the morning show that day, and we hope you will join us. We'll be playing loads of Beach Boys songs, as well as songs by bands that have been massively influenced by Pet Sounds, plus we'll be playing the entire Pet Sounds album during the 7:00 hour. It's gonna be a fun morning of harmonies and hooks, so don't miss out!
Big thanks to Steve Guse who reminded us that this anniversary was coming up. Listen to Embrace The Sound on Monday (and EVERY Monda) at 3:00 for more Pet Sounds!
Here's a great article that Pitchfork put together about the influence of Pet Sounds. It's so hard to believe that a record this important was so poorly received back in the day, but with time comes perspective. Pet Sounds is masterful from start to finish.
