    Things We Said Today #411 – The restored “Let It Be,” John’s “Mind Games,” Ringo’s virtual Q&A

    Things We Said Today #411 – The restored “Let It Be,” John’s “Mind Games,” Ringo’s virtual Q&A

    In Episode 411 of Things We Said Today, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren Devivo discuss the newly restored version of Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 “Let It Be,” and how it got its bad reputation, and how it looks now; the just announced “Mind Games” archival release, due in July, and Ringo Starr’s virtual press conference on May 15. [For listeners looking for specific topics, the first part of the show is devoted to the News, with “Let It Be” discussion starting at 33 minutes, the overview of the “Mind Games” reissue (and formats) beginning at 1 hour 33 minutes, and the report on Ringo’s press conference getting underway at 1 hour 52 minutes. Yeah, it’s a long one, but think of it as three shows in one!]

    Things We Said Today #409 – Dana Klosner and Beatlemania Lives On

                In Episode 409 of Things We Said Today, Darren Devivo, Ken Michaels and Allan Kozinn have a chat with Dana Klosner about her book “Beatlemania Lives On – Superfans in the 21st Century,” a fun read about the current state of Beatle fandom, based on interviews with everyone from Peter Asher and Laurence Juber to fans who have turned their onstage autographs into tattoos, with authors, DJs (Darren was among her interviewees) and Beatles tribute band musicians. For those who prefer to liten selectively, the news section begins at 3’00” and the interview with Dana starts at 26’30”.

    Things We Said Today #408 – Red, Blue and Underdubbed

                A number of correspondents have asked why the Beatles “Red” and “Blue” album reissues were not covered on Things We Said Today, so in episode 408, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren Devivo catch up with those releases, as well as the more recent “Underdubbed” version of Paul McCartney’s “Band on the Run.” (Allan also offers a preview of the new HMC bootleg release with earlier versions of the “Band on the Run” tracks.) For those who want to listen selectively, the news segment begins at 4’33” (yes, really), the “Red” and “Blue” discussion is at 35’, and the McCartney section is at 1’24”.

    Things We Said Today #407 – McCartney’s Mid-70s Recording Venues, with Adrian Sinclair

    Things We Said Today #407 – McCartney’s Mid-70s Recording Venues, with Adrian Sinclair

                This was the Things We Said Today panel at the Fest for Beatles Fans at the TWA Hotel, February 10, 2024. Ken Michaels, Darren Devivo and Allan Kozinn were joined by Allan’s McCartney Legacy co-author, Adrian Sinclair, to discuss Paul’s penchant in the mid-70s (i.e., the period covered in The McCartney Legacy Vols. 1 & 2) for recording outside London.  [Thanks to Andy Nicholes of the Two Legs podcast for taping the session. Apologies for any sound issues - this was a live event.]

Always good Beatle banter

While some of these blokes can occassionally sound like crotchety old men (I’m looking at you, Darren), they usually bring an experienced perspective to their discussions.

The highlight of this podcast has been their scoop of getting Peter Jackson to appear and talk at length on some of the most insightful Beatle stuff in recent memory.

I especially appreciate Kozin’s studied analysis and Ken’s news and optimism. Thanks for keeping it light, honest, and interesting, guys.

Episode titles

The titles of the more recent episodes don’t match up with the content. Where’s the one on Revolver?

Unhappy & Frustrated ,

Gun ads? Seriously?

I’m not sure if y’all are able to control your advertising or if it’s all up to Apple podcasting, but the last thing I want to hear on a podcast associated with John Lennon is an ad marketed for gun lovers. I don’t care about your personal politics(y’all have done a good job not bringing any up on any episodes I’ve heard) but this was completely tasteless. Especially in December (the ad mentions Christmas)
Disgusting
