I was surprised to find this, and I immediately sent it to Custom Machine and other fan friends! I guess I wrote a review on Rateyourmusic.com back in 2003, and someone was inspired by the review and made this video! I happened upon it accidentally, when a Facebook friend posted a different video from the channel on their timeline. So crazy how I found it!

Re: "The Locomotion" as recorded by Mike Love for that first Radio Shack/Hitbound release "Rock And Roll City".

Just listen to it. And consider how any business interest, Radio Shack or any record company, would give the green light to fund and promote more of the same from Mike or anyone else.

Then consider how Mike Love thought his version of "The Locomotion" was an improvement over the Little Eva original.

I haven't read through the whole thread, so I'm not sure this has been shared yet. This is what is probably the only Mike & Dean interview there ever was. Mike & Dean seem to be great friends at this point. Topics covered include Rock and Roll City, Radio Shack record label, Jan Berry, and Brian Wilson

That's not the only one.

Here is a continuation of that "People Now" interview with Mike & Dean with more guests: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdGTIkjBh_w

Here is another talk show appearance where Mike & Dean dance, lipsynch to one of the RS tunes Da Doo Ron Ron, and chat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQupUUunQFk

Shorter clip of the same appearance, better quality but cel video off a TV monitor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrS4p8L9qpc

Mike & Dean on Entertainment Tonight with Robin Leach on a yacht: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9RQvOtYu_Y


I think there could be more, but that's what is on YouTube from the Radio Shack era

Enjoyed SBonilla's Youtube comment, concerning Caroline No segued into The Locomotion,  "One of these recordings was born on the wrong side of the tracks."

There's a one-off appearance of Dean with Mike & Bruce coming up on May 4th in Oklahoma City. It's a benefit show at The Civic Center Music Hall.

Mike Love's fake Beach Boys Tribute, juke box band can use all the help they can get. Since there's very little originality going on, why not? It would be appropriate for Dean to join such a band but why go out on a low note with Mike Love grabbing for straws? Such an embarrassing way to end a career with a copy band that has no business being able to sell out the BB name which only coincides with Mike Love's philosophy of anything for a buck.
