In 1977, Dennis Wilson ...

In 1977, Dennis Wilson released Pacific Ocean Blue, and emerged from the shadow of his older brother, pop genius Brian Wilson, and shocked everyone with a sound and style unlike any other. More than 30 years later, it stands as one of the 1970s great cult-classic albums and a crucial puzzle-piece in the Wilson family's long musical history. Throughout this one-hour special, Dennis Wilson's friends and family recall how he developed his musical voice. We also hear from Dennis Wilson, himself, courtesy of a rare radio visit at the time Pacific Ocean Blue was released.

The special airs at 10 a.m. and again at 9 p.m.
