In this episode, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo celebrate Ken’s 2000th Beatles show – counting radio shows and podcasts. We then each discuss our 5 least favorite Beatles (as a group) tracks, and why. Tough job with a catalogue that’s the zenith of Western Civ, and it’s fair to say we were, in some cases, surprised by each other’s selections.

In this episode, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo are joined by Steve Matteo, the author of the excellent book ‘Let It Be,’ published in 2004 as part of the ‘33 1/3’ series on classic albums. In writing the book, Matteo had interviewed many of the people involved, from EMI engineers to the director Michael Lindsay-Hogg and some of his technical crew, and we discuss some of the insights he offers in his concise study of the Beatles’ penultimate (but last-released) album and its afterlife.As always, we welcome your thoughts about this episode of the show or any other episode.
