This is the second of two episodes spotlighting the most enduring rock and roll band in American History. –  the Beach Boys. No matter what the season, it’s always summer whenever and wherever their songs are playing.

They’ve sold more than 100 million recordings around the world since 1961. We’ll focus on their U.S.-charted hit singles – all of them – in a two-episode salute. We began this chronicle on show #169 – comprising the Beach Boys’ successful 45s during the1960s. Now, this edition #170 – reviews the band’s hit singles since 1970 – all together more than half a century of solid gold.

This includes hit records with Little Richard, the Fat Boys, and four late 1990s country music stars, as well as former members of the Mamas & Papas and the Byrds. Plus, the Beach Boys connection with famed classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach.

Our resident Rockologist, Ken Deutsch, will join Radio Dave  to co-anchor this episode, as together we present more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record. Hear it all here.
