Van Dyke Parks with Clare and The Reasons

Van Dyke Parks has been shaping new possibilities of song since his 1960s collaborations with Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys, and his landmark 1968  album "Song Cycle." Having worked with everyone from Grace Kelly to Joanna Newsom during his long career, Parks is now performing together with the band Clare and The Reasons, and host David Garland welcomes them all to the WNYC Studio to talk about their music, and perform songs old and new.

Clare and The Reasons played one more song than could fit in the broadcast, but you can listen to "Pluton/Pluto" here:
