American musician, singer, songwriter and co-founder of The Beach Boys, Al Jardine, is our "focus beam" artist this week (and in time for his 79th birthday on September 3rd)! We hear a couple of his solo tunes (including his latest "Waves Of Love 2.0") along with hearing about his story. There's songs from influences and peers on here too including The Beach Boys (with Al on lead vocals), Brian Wilson (featuring Al and Blondie Chaplin), Pete Seeger, The Crows, America and The Limeliters. Beth's Lightning Round returns with singer-songwriter (and former touring member of The Beach Boys, Jan & Dean and others), Randell Kirsch. Jammin' James Riley has an Al Casey tune in Rockabilly Rewind and there's great rockin' tunes from Mark Malibu & The Wasagas, Drifting Sand and Shoot The Pier as well!
