Audiography: Episode 040: “Al Jardine and David Marks (of The Beach Boys)”


    In this edition of Audiography, we feature reviews of the latest albums by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Future Unlimited, and Crocodiles. We also feature a two-part interview between Consequence of Sound’s Len Comaratta and Al Jardine and David Marks of The Beach Boys. We discuss what it was like making the reunion record, That’s Why God Made the Radio, the division of labor in the band’s early days between their appearance and the studio, why it took Jardine so long to complete a solo album, Marks’ early time with the band, what led him to study music in Boston, why he didn’t come back in ’71..
