In earlier episodes, Allan has referred to some of his experiences interviewing people in the Beatles world during his years as the New York Times’ Beatles Desk, and Ken Michaels and Darren DeVivo occasionally joked that they should devote an episode to some of these. Perhaps hearing Allan’s Albert Goldman impression in episode 323 was what did it, but in any case, this turned out to be that show. With Ken and Darren prompting, Allan offers some memories of interviewing Paul, Ringo, Yoko, George Martin, Derek Taylor, Neil Aspinall and others.

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.
