Musical 'Beach Party' Films Get A Second Wave; Garifuna Collective Plays Live

Thursday, July 11, 2013

In this episode: The so-called “beach party” films of the '60s -- where teens romped along the surf and occasionally broke out into song -- washed away with the changing tides of the 1970s. Now, Disney aims to revive the musical genre with a new made-for-TV-special. We talk with the New York Times' Brooks Barnes about the new "Teen Beach Movie" -- and with film historian and author Tom Lisanti about the music-filled original films. 

Plus: The Garifuna Collective, hailing from Belize, has spent a career playing the music of Central America’s Afro-Amerindian community. They play material from their two new albums -- one with the Canadian singer-songwriter Danny Michel -- live in the studio.
