Play • 1 hr 21 min

Peter Gallagher, aka Sandy Cohen, aka everyone’s favorite dad – is back! This time, he’s in the studio with his OC co-stars, Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke, to discuss “The Power of Love” (S2 Ep 8).

In this episode of the show, Sandy sings to Kirsten, “Don’t Give Up on Me.” Hear Peter’s story about how that song came to be part of The OC. And, all that it led to afterward: a lifelong friendship with Solomon Burke, a record deal, and the making of Peter’s album “7 Days in Memphis.” Stay tuned to the very end to hear Peter sing live in the studio!

Peter shares what he would have done differently in this episode. Melinda remembers a story about the wardrobe choice that was originally made for the Riviera Magazine shoot. And, they all have some thoughts on Lindsay’s outfit in this episode! 

The Power of Love Synopsis: When Sandy seemingly forgot their 20th anniversary, he tries everything to make it up to Kirsten. But with Seth acting out to try and be with Alex, and Ryan lying on his behalf, Kirsten fears leaving the boys alone and their anniversary may be doomed. DJ calls it off with Marissa after seeing her true motivations for dating him.
