Didn’t the music of The Beach Boys and Jan and Dean make you feel good? It gave you a feeling of freedom and the desire to hit the surf & sand. Their success was a rare mixture of music and culture. Jan and Dean met in high school and developed a life-long friendship as well as pioneering the “California Surf Sound. Our Special Visitor this week will be Dean Torrence (Jan and Dean). The duo met Brian Wilson and that’s when their surf boards really rode the waves.
