By Michael DeMartin
Drum roll, please... We now have links to the very first episode in Capitol's brand-new Pet Sounds podcast series. This is an Alubm Overview introduced by Brian and features Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston talking about the landmark album. These are all-new interviews created specifically for the series and we know you'll dig the sounds. Note that this initial episode will also be available in Apple's iTunes by the time you read this.
Capitol said iTunes will is going to feature this series with a banner etc. in the Podcast section, but if you don't see it yet, just go to the Podcast section and type in "Beach Boys" and you'll get a link to the podcast page. Then, you can download the episode and subscribe to it - which means that you'll automatically get new episodes downloaded to your computer and iPod. How cool is that?
Here's the official line about the Podcast series from Capitol: The Pet Sounds 40th Anniversary Podcast is a 15-episode series documenting the making of the Beach Boys' seminal 1966 album. We invite you listen to its creator, Brian Wilson, and fellow Beach Boys Mike Love, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston share their thoughts on making this landmark album. This 15-episode series includes an album overview, individual podcasts for each album track, as well as a bonus episode on the making of "Good Vibrations."
Note that the first episode (Album Overview) is available as a video podcast (really just a cool slideshow) and an audio podcast. The slideshow will look cool on your video iPod if you have one.
