The founding members of THE BEACH BOYS have reunited for a global 50th Anniversary celebration, including a new album release, a major international tour, and commemorative catalog releases. TODAY, THE BEACH BOYS announced details about their new studio album, That's Why God Made The Radio, to be released JUNE 5th by Capitol/EMI.
"Radio was my whole education," said BRIAN WILSON. "CHUCK BERRY, ROSEMARY CLOONEY, THE FOUR FRESHMEN, PHIL SPECTOR, LITTLE RICHARD... To hear 'That's Why God Made The Radio' on the radio would be a thrill beyond belief, it really would. It would be a thrill beyond belief."
"I got a lot of my appreciation for all of the creativity in the world, in terms of music, through the radio," added MIKE LOVE. "For all of us who grew up in the '50s, '60s, '70s and beyond, the radio has played such a huge, important part in our lives. When we were kids, we'd sneak out of the house and go and sit in BRIAN's car and listen to the local radio stations on his car radio."
