Considering the band is definitely a favorite of our radio shows it should come as no surprise that their new/old album "Meet The Smithereens" (an affectionate song for song recording of "Meet The Beatles in the band's own style) is getting endless airplay from us. Or that DTM brought the band on stage when they visited San Francisco. Or that we arranged for a high definition video shoot that you will soon find on ITUNES. Or, or that the interview with Pat Dinizio and DTM went on for well over an hour!!
Pat Dinizio: I was standing on a little stool in the bathroom and I used to like to look at my face when I brushed my teeth in the morning. I had my little red transistor radio positioned strategically on the sink and it was tuned in to WABC and Herb Oscar Anderson said “We never really play anything from England but here's the Beatles and this is called ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’”. And when the notes hit, Dennis, I dropped my toothbrush in the sink, literally. The opening chords to “I Want Hold Your Hand” my life changed forever. LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW
