In media, Long Island is often painted out to be a New York City suburb. While technically true, Long Island has also been at the epicenter of many cultural movements over the past century. It was an important to the development of aviation during the early 20th Century, as Charles Lindbergh lifted off from Roosevelt Field in 1927. It was the place of origin for countless winners of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards. Hip-hop, punk rock, classic literature, and stand-up comedy all have roots in Nassau and Suffolk County. The Great GatsbyThe Godfather and Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind are just a few of the influential works that use Long Island as a setting. 

Our website was launched in April 2016 with the mission of celebrating both the history of Long Island and what's ahead for it. Its main focus is on entertainment, from providing content that is entertaining, to featuring Island-related events and personalities. While written by Long Islanders -- past and present -- the content is intended for readers all over the world. We leave the politics and hard news to the other publications...unless they happen to be entertaining.

Simply put, there is No Place Like Long Island.

Episode #005: Mike Love of The Beach Boys

Mike Love co-founded The Beach Boys over 55 years ago alongside Brian Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Carl Wilson and Al Jardine. Last year, Love released a double album through BMG titled Unleash The Love, his first solo album in decades. One year prior to that, Love released an autobiography, Good Vibrations: My Life As A Beach Boy. Meanwhile, The Beach Boys remain active as ever, performing over 170 shows in 2017 alone. Simply put, Mike Love shows no signs of slowing down, and I spoke to him about that by phone last December.
