EPISODE 2 - They came out of the Sixties with three different band names doing all kinds of rock and roll covers until one day they had a chance meeting with Jan and Dean, and all of a sudden a new name emerged. They've kept that name for almost forty years - the hottest Beach Boys band around - Papa Doo Run Run. We're talking with Don Zirilli, one of the groups notable leaders who's been with them since day one and tells stories of working with Brian Wilson and Mike Love and being the house band at Disneyland for fifteen years.
