    Things We Said Today #320 – Ken’s 2000th Beatles Show, Our Least Favorite Beatles Tracks

    Things We Said Today #320 – Ken’s 2000th Beatles Show, Our Least Favorite Beatles Tracks

    In this episode, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo celebrate Ken’s 2000th Beatles show – counting radio shows and podcasts. We then each discuss our 5 least favorite Beatles (as a group) tracks, and why. Tough job with a catalogue that’s the zenith of Western Civ, and it’s fair to say we were, in some cases, surprised by each other’s selections.

    Things We Said Today #319 –  Steve Matteo on ‘Let It Be’ - the album, the film and his book

    In this episode, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo are joined by Steve Matteo, the author of the excellent book ‘Let It Be,’ published in 2004 as part of the ‘33 1/3’ series on classic albums. In writing the book, Matteo had interviewed many of the people involved, from EMI engineers to the director Michael Lindsay-Hogg and some of his technical crew, and we discuss some of the insights he offers in his concise study of the Beatles’ penultimate (but last-released) album and its afterlife.As always, we welcome your thoughts about this episode of the show or any other episode.

Great show, but...

Y’all really need better studio microphones!

Love the podcast...

...and listen to every episode. 2 improvements I would suggest: 1) Skip the lengthy intros. We all know who the guys are now. I’ve gotten to the point that once I hit play on a new episode, first thing I immediately skip forward 2-3 minutes. 2) The noises in the background seem to be getting worse. This has been a problem for quite a while, but during the most resent episode regarding Beatles compilations, it sounded literally like one of them was wrapping Christmas gifts! This rustling of paper or whatever it was went on and on and was quite often louder than whomever was speaking at the time. It got so distracting that I couldn’t finish listening to the episode. I wonder, do you guys ever listen back to the episode before posting it? I can’t imagine that you wouldn’t notice this. I can appreciate the concept of multitasking but you really have to just cool it with that while you’re recording an episode.

Great, thoughtful Podcast with one glaring exception

Love the discussion, the insight and truly enthusiastic debate. Highly recommend. But I’m listening to the Plastic Ono Band “review”. Avoid. Completely misses the point to the point of absurdity. Awful, puerile dismantling of a startling, personal statement that has stood the test of time. It’s not Lennon’s “comedy record”. It’s almost worth listening to for the continuing string of misinterpretations and second guessing. Should have been more produced?? Would have benefitted from Paul’s harmony? So so far off...

Many many worthwhile episodes.
