Musician and vocalist Howard Kaylan (The Turtles, The Mothers of Invention, Flo & Eddie) joins Gilbert and Frank for a funny, freewheeling discussion of a host of topics, including the virtuosity of Harry Nilsson, the “free love” of the 1960s, the nostalgic appeal of “That Thing You Do!” and the underrated artistry of The Zombies. Also: Howard disses Lulu, parties with Soupy Sales, runs afoul of Jimi Hendrix and meets his personal “Louis Prima.” PLUS: Kate Smith! “Don McNeill’s Breakfast Club!” Donald Fagen buys a suit! John Lennon feuds with Frank Zappa! And the Turtles invade the White House!
