I'm taking the subject of the Beach Boys in a slightly different direction tonight on Midnight In The Desert radio. If you're up late please check it out!

Damn, I wish I would have known about this when it came out! Does anyone know where I can still listen to it? I've been trying to access it for a few days, but all the links on the site appear broken for me. I tried turning my ad blockers off and different browsers but I can't seem to get it.

I looked on their SoundCloud, but it only goes back so far and I don't see the Paranormal episode at all. Each time, the top of the page plays a random episode that doesn't have anything to do with the Stebbins episode. It played a 2016 rerun last night about Shadow People and A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), which while that was really cool, it's not the 2019 BB and the Paranormal ep I'm looking for.

Big fan of Coast to Coast, Art Bell, Midnight in the Desert, etc., but I never thought it'd mix with the Beach Boys. Sorry to bump an old thread guys, checked the search but didn't see any other thread about it. Hoping maybe someone saved it...

First off I didn't even save a file of the show so I can't be helpful there. Honestly I don't think it was a very good match unfortunately. The producer who booked me seemed to understand that there was a lot of darkness and occult/spiritual related aspects deep within the Beach Boys story but once I was on the air it was obvious that the host did not know any of this stuff. His view of the Beach Boys was the typical fun, sun, innocence, positivity perspective, and when I attempted to relate that there was plenty of darkness and weirdness in both their story and their music he seemed to not quite get it. It was hard for me to turn that around in the time slot, and also the fact that the host was a pretty dominating presence so he wasn't really deferring to my perspective, but kept relating that the group was a positive counter to all the bad things about the 60's etc... I had David Marks phone in to talk about his mom (a known psychic and huge influence on Brian's spiritual outlook) but it seemed the host was more interested in asking Dave about the standard stuff instead of the weird stuff. So the show kept diverting to a typical Beach Boys interview about how cool, and fun they were, instead of how strange and dark they were. It was ok I guess but not at all what I was thinking going in. I barely got to scratch the surface on all the trippy shadowy paranormal and even scary stuff in their story. Even relating that their most celebrated album Pet Sounds was a mostly sad, searching and melancholy work of art was met with seeming bewilderment. So too bad.

I'm very sorry to hear about that, Jon. The premise sounded amazing, I wish you were able to go more into detail about what you wanted to talk about. I would love it it if you would maybe decide to do a write up on this somewhere along the line. The anecdote about David Marks mom is really interesting - not sure I've read that before! I know during Smile Brian thought witches were putting hexes on him and it seemed like he was interested in occult matters. Big fan of your writing, by the way
