Kalinich TivenSTEVEN KALINICH and JON TIVEN have been around various and sundry elements of the rock’n’roll scene since the swinging ’60s, hanging with the likes of several BEACH BOYS, some ROLLING STONES, ALEX CHILTON, PAUL MCCARTNEY and many others across the years.  They’ve also written over 1000 songs together, and a small portion of those songs have appeared on 2 remarkable albums released over the past few years, most notably on their most recent release Each Soul Has A Voice.  You’ll hear that entire record with discussion/commentary by its creators on this unexpectedly spiritual and philosophical GE episode.  Inner/outer peace never rocked so hard, fellow music geeks!

Beach BoysIn the period 1965-66, The BEACH BOYS were in major transition, moving from an infectious touring pop band playing its innocuous pop hits to a serious contender in the pop artistry sweepstakes.  At the heart of this change was songwriter/producer wunderkind BRIAN WILSON and his chosen lyrical collaborators Tony Ashton and Van Dyke Parks.  The result was two intriguing and engaging albums, Pet Sounds and Smile.  While Pet Sounds stands as a beautifully creative response to The BEATLES’ Rubber Soul, Smile was destined to be abandoned and never officially released.  Hear both works in their entirety (the latter as re-recorded and finished by WILSON and PARKS in 2004) and selections with the hastily recorded Smiley Smile on this episode of GE.  The pain of genius unmasked, fellow music geeks!
