Allan, Ken, Al and Steve begin this week's episode by following up on last week's interview with Philip Norman and giving opinions about the book "McCartney: The Life," then give some thoughts about the Mark Lewisohn - Conan O'Brien interview, and the connections of Bob Dylan and Brian Wilson with the Beatles. As always, we'd love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week, Allan, Al, Ken and Steve talk to Philip Norman, author of the newly published "Paul McCartney: The Life," who talks about his new book and looks at McCartney's life and career. (And don' forget you can hear the show Thursdays and Fridays on WCPR1, Saturdays and Sundays on Fab4Radio and also on PowerPopRadio, plus YouTube and iTunes.)
This week, Steve, Allan, Al and Ken welcome Gary Jacob, organizer and producer of the Abbey Road on the River Beatles festival making his first appearance on "Things We Said Today." Gary talks about the history of the event and gives some great behind-the-scenes insight into how it works. And with this week's show, we're adding a new affiliate WCPR.
