    I know a lot of you have been waiting for the next 'Beatles Naked' episode. So have I - while Erik's been overloaded with assorted work and family-related issues.

Some of you will also be able to ask questions that are answered on-air - and enter prize draws for signed copies of my books.The first episode features segments of a 1989 press roundtable with Paul, attended and recorded by New York Times music critic Allan Kozinn - and heard here for the first time. Part of my McCartney Month celebrating his 80th birthday, this will be followed later this week by Allan's one-on-one 1990 interview with him in New York City - and then, next week, subsequent ones from 1995 (discussing The Beatles Anthology) and 2007.Other Macca-centric episodes are already in the can, but you've probably guessed I won't be just focussing on him.

    Episode #40 – ‘Stu Sutcliffe – The Abstract Beatle’

    Episode #40 – ‘Stu Sutcliffe – The Abstract Beatle’

    The Beatles’ diminutive co-founder, man of mystery, king of cool, abstract artist, fragile angel, tragic hero. Stuart Sutcliffe’s short life has been well documented, based on the recollections of some who knew him. His image has been immortalized by fiancée Astrid Kirchherr’ iconic photos. His expressionistic paintings survive on canvas. And his voice can be detected in a few of the letters he wrote. But we don’t have a clue how he sounded—speaking, singing or (barely discernible on some lo-fi amateur recordings) playing bass. And, so far, nothing’s emerged of him on film. So, from the public’s perspective, what does he actually bring to The Beatles’ story? The music in this episode is from rehearsals captured at the McCartney home on a Grundig reel-to-reel in April and June of 1960—before the group had a permanent drummer, before the first trip to Hamburg: * Well, Darling* One After 909* Hallelujah, I Love Her So** Cayenne** That’s When Your Heartaches Begin* Hello Little Girl* You’ll Be Mine* * with Stuart Sutcliffe playing bass

Among the musical highlights: in-studio crafting of ‘Don’t Let Me Down’, ‘For You Blue’, ‘She Came in Through the Bathroom Window’, ‘Two of Us’, ‘Get Back (Commonwealth)’ and ‘Dig It’.
