“A Women’s History of the Beatles,” featuring author Christine Feldman-Barrett

We round out Women's History Month by speaking with author and academic Christine Feldman-Barrett, author of the new book, A Women's History of the Beatles

American scholar Christine Feldman-Barrett is a Senior Lecturer in sociology at Griffith University, in Brisbane, Australia, and is a member of the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research. A Women’s History of the Beatles brings a refreshing new perspective to our knowledge of Beatles history, chronicling not only the impact of women on the Beatles, but also how the band has influenced and inspired women for three generations and counting.

Why the Beatles Loved… the Monkees? With Special Guest Andrew Sandoval

The creators behind the Monkees’ hit television series (and the band itself) hoped to establish an American Beatles - although the band’s critics would often refer to them as the “Pre-Fab Four.” While much of the music community despised the Monkees, the Beatles… actually loved them. Join us as we explore why with Grammy-nominated producer, historian, and author Andrew Sandoval, whose new book chronicles the Monkees’ entire career from the birth of Peter Tork in 1942 to the very last day of 1970.
