Talkin’ About “Freedom” (and Paul’s Concert for New York City)

Last month marked 20 years since 9/11, and while observing the day itself is pretty grim, we couldn’t let the anniversary pass without talking about how Paul channeled that horrible event into some pretty massive (and divisive) musical moments.

Getting Back to Where We Once Belonged

“You breathe in and you breathe out. We feel like doing it and we have something to say.” — John Lennon to David Sheff, Playboy, 1980

We’re baaaack! After a bit of a hiatus, we return with something of an explanation — plus, we discuss (and justify our absence with) lessons John Lennon learned during his late-1970s house-husband days.

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.
