Intense, often lyrical, and obviously well-informed pod. It’d be improved if they shared more of the knowledge underlying their opinions—there’s little that a Beatles maniac will learn that’s new here. They also don’t focus enough on...the Beatles. There are many many episodes on their solo careers (especially Paul; these guys love Paul), which would be fine except they haven’t covered all of the Beatles material. Why is there a Tug of War episode but not an Abbey Road? Would love more Beatles coverage.
As others mention, their love and praise sometimes goes overboard—everything Paul does is the best, the absolute best; it’s not enough to say he gets deep, he gets “just as deep” as John. It’s a bit hyperbolic.
All that said, Howie & Bard are sharp and entertaining. It’s good stuff but you have to pick and choose.
The BEATLES podcast
I listen to a lot of them and fabcast is my favorite.
Nothing is Real pc is a close 2nd.
If possible make more per month please.
I disagree with y’all about S Wonder Mt Rushmore reference, he doesn’t belong there.
I may get a greatest hits album by SW at the most.
Otherwise , Love the show. More!
Best Episode Yet
I have to hand it to you both, this latest episode (1969 pt1) is fantastic.
I also love the way you put the bigger Pop landscape in perspective, and demonstrate whatever else in any given year is “Beatles “, whether CSN in 69, or Prince in ‘84.
Please continue to keep the amazing analysis coming, and thanks for the hours of enjoyment
