William McKeen, author of “Everybody Had An Ocean”

Author William McKeen called in for a fun chat about his new book “Everybody Had An Ocean: Music and Mayhem in 1960s Los Angeles.”  We discussed how many casual music fans (and even some dedicated Beach Boys fans) may not know about the connection between the Beach Boys and Charles Manson,  what drew so many musicians to L.A. in the ’60s, and how the hippie philosophies of peace, love and acceptance might unfortunately led to their downfall.
