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:

Van Dyke Parks is an angel. It´s a privilege to be able to listen to his music and contributions to other artists´ music.

Great to listen to the program last night and then again, this morning digitally. Van Dyke has been a hero of mine since the Warner Bros. Loss Leader records from the early 1970s. Beautiful music from all concerned. Thank you.
