To celebrate the summer and the Beach Boys’ new album That’s Why God Made the Radio PopMatters has arranged an awesome beach music prize pack for one lucky reader!

The founding members of the Beach Boys, one of the world’s most legendary bands in popular music history, have reunited for a global 50th Anniversary celebration, including a new album release, a major international tour, and commemorative catalog releases. Their new studio album, That’s Why God Made the Radio, was released June 5th by Capitol/EMI. Produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love, the album’s 12 new songs illustrate the Beach Boys’ unique and evocative West Coast story with the band’s timeless signature sound. The Beach Boys’ collaborative approach to writing and recording their new music is evidenced throughout the album, with all of the band members participating to create its glorious harmonies, lyrics, and arrangements. In addition, the Beach Boys and Capitol/EMI have also partnered for 50th Anniversary commemorative releases celebrating the band’s entire catalog, with a new hits collection and a career-spanning box set planned for later this year.
  

You can pick up That’s Why God Made the Radio at Amazon or via the band’s website, where you can also find a special packaging version of That’s Why God Made the Radio or even the surfboard box set of SMiLE to really make the most of the beach.
