'Come on along ... '

Here is the official press release on the July 14 program. The text below has already been acknowledged by major press outlets on the web and in old-fashioned hard copy (though this version was edited to fit your TV screen). Come along, as Mr. Parks sings, we just may be going your way.


GRANTVILLE, Penn. – Van Dyke Parks, one of pop music’s most uniquely talented performers and producers, will appear on arguably the internet’s most unique and prolific talk program, Cotolo Chronicles, on Thursday, July 14 at 9 p.m. EST.

A top show among podcasters and one of the Internet’s most popular talk programs, Cotolo Chronicles is based at Ampcast dot com and heard live on a slew of Internet radio stations, as well as it is rebroadcast on stations multiple times following the live show—a list of stations is available below. Please check each one for live or rebroadcast status.

Most recently making industry news as the co-author of Brian Wilson’s refurbished Smile project, Mr. Parks’ contributions to the music world go far and beyond the legendary 1960s album. His own albums include the inspiring and influential Discover America and his film soundtracks include Goin’ South, Jack Nicholson’s directorial debut.

Other composition accomplishments cover film, television movies and specials, theater works and he has written three children’s books.

As a producer, musician and arranger, Mr. Parks is also responsible for works in league with The Everly Brothers, U2, Bruce Springsteen, Cher, Ringo Starr, Keith Moon, Harry Nilsson, Fiona Apple, Linda Ronstadt, Ry Cooder, Sheryl Crow, Randy Newman and many more.

“The status of our program as a groundbreaking alternative broadcast,” says show host Frank Cotolo, veteran of commercial radio, music projects and author of three underground classic pieces of fiction, “is lifted by the appearance of a talent as quintessential as Mr. Parks. I can safely testify that there is no other artist to have so boldly presented, over the last few turbulent decades, the stuff that musical dreams are made of. I hope to introduce Mr. Parks to many people in the digital community who have allowed his part of musical history to go under the proverbial radar.”
