NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Beach Boys are celebrating their 50th anniversary and Wednesday that will bring them to the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.
“After so many years, the Beach Boys remain fun and fresh and still retain a touch of innocence from a kinder America,” said one YouTube comment about the band’s new album “That’s Why God Made The Radio.”
The user went on to say “Thanks for bringing hope and love back to music.”
Well, WCBS 880’s Wayne Cabot spoke with founding member Mike Love.

“It really was neat getting back together in the studio although we hadn’t done anything together in years,” Love told Cabot. “Listen to the playback after having done ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio,’ it felt to me like it was 1965 again, at least musically speaking.”
Cabot said people have been comparing the new album to the band’s 1966 album “Pet Sounds.”
“It’s not intentional, but it is us and so therefore, there’s gonna be something reminiscent of stuff we’ve done before, like ‘California Girls,'” Love said.
