The man behind 'Pappa Razzi and the Photogs', 'The Passionate and Objective Jokerfan' and an array of other musical identities in the Motern Media stable, Matt Farley, welcomes me into his Danvers MA studio to convince me that the greatest Beach Boys album is not 'Pet Sounds' but actually their 1977 cult album 'Love You'.

My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the
great works of pop music. Each episode features a different
songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time

and the album’s influence on their own music.
