Starting with his THE BEATLES IN AMERICA - 1964, producer Paul Ingles has been creating lively programs to mark the anniversaries of key moments and albums in the remarkable story of The Beatles. He's produced over 20 hours of programs that have aired on hundreds of public radio stations. Now with the 50th anniversaries starting to roll by, his evergreen programs are once again timely and timeless. Musicians, music writers and Beatles fans offer historical notes, musical insights and personal stories that give listeners a new appreciation of the most important band in rock history.

The Beatles In America - 1964 (2 Hours @ 59:00 or 54:00)

From Paul Ingles | 01:57:56

A lively two-hour montage of rare archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews on The Beatles' first U.S. grand tour. (Hour 1 can stand alone without second hour if you can't possibly place both at once - also, Hour 1 focuses on January-February 1964 / Hour 2 focuses on the Beatles summer tour of the US in August/September 1964 - so Hour 1 can go early in 2014, Hour 2 later in the year). Originally distributed by PRI, now available to all stations.

Beatleslogo_small When The Beatles arrived in the United States in February of 1964, no one could have anticipated the tremendous impact the band would have on the development of American popular music and pop culture. Paul Ingles hosts The Beatles in America - 1964 and takes listeners back to when The Beatles and America first got to know one another. This lively two-hour montage features rarely heard archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews with fans and reporters who were swept into The Beatles frenzy. Some of the recordings featured in this program haven't been played publicly in 40 years. They are available here because of Larry Kane and Art Schreiber, two reporters who made almost every stop of The Beatle's 1964 tour and had remarkable access to the band. Their interviews capture the boys'wonder, humor, and thoughtful analysis of the madness that was swirling around them and enveloping the nation. Ingles talks with historians and authors whose enthusiasm and excitement also reflects that phenomenal time. Naturally, The Beatles in America - 1964 includes plenty of hits from that year, but in true public radio form, it also showcases lesser-heard gems from early Beatle's albums that fans wore through. Join Paul Ingles for a thrilling walk down musical memory lane. Offered to PRI affiliates only in 2004. Now available to all public radio stations. Although produced for 40th anniversary of Beatles arrival in America, no specific mention of the anniversary is made so it plays as an evergreen of that remarkable first year of America's experience with the Beatles.

Each hour has an optional 5 minute "Segment 2" which can be deleted if you need a newscast friendly hour.

Everything Was Right: The Beatles' Revolver

From Paul Ingles | 01:58:00

Either a two-hour program (with optional 5:00 newscast length content in each hour that can be dropped), or a one-hour program (with additional newcast friendly 54:00 cut) in which musicians, writers, and Beatle fans explore what made Revolver one of the top rock albums of all time.

Showlogo1athumb_small NOW AVAILABLE TO ALL OF PUBLIC RADIO. "AWESOME! BEST PIECE OF RADIO I HAVE HEARD in ages. A must listen for any Beatles fan." PRX REVIEW by Jonathan Fahey When rock music critics and fans are asked to rank the top rock albums of all time, The Beatles' 1966 release Revolver either heads the list or falls into the top tier. To mark the 40th anniversary year of the album's release, award-winning producer and host Paul Ingles presents Everything Was Right: The Beatles' "Revolver" Ingles explores the landmark album's story and influence in depth, talking with historians, musicians, music critics, and fans and spotlighting each Revolver track (along with the 1966 single "Paperback Writer and Rain") The Beatles experimented with new sounds and subject matter on Revolver, pioneering psychedelic rock on some tracks and exhibiting extraordinary song-craft on others. Listeners learn about the sources for the tunes, the studio experiments The Beatles used to get their ground-breaking sounds, and the lasting impact of the collection on the pop/rock music scene. Among the guest commentators is Mark Lewisohn, author of The Beatles Recording Sessions. The only journalist to have listened to every second of the Beatles' studio recordings, Lewisohn is a major authority on the band's history. Everything Was Right also features music writers Jim Derogatis, Steve Turner, Jeff Sobul, and Stuart Maddow. Musicians Shawn Colvin, Mark Erelli, John Leventhal, Deborah Holland, Richard Goldman, David Gans, Kristy Kruger, and Jon Spurney join other Beatle fans to talk about their favorite tracks on what is arguably the greatest album by the greatest band of all time. "...it does do a solid job of dissecting the psychology, backstory and musicianship of each song note for delicious note. This is the kind of program that makes musical pedants like myself pant with delight...this documentary does offer solid journalism, excellent production values and a style that leaves most of the talking to the interviewees. Highly recommended." PRX REVIEW by Jonathan Groubert    "...relentless, meticulous work on the part of the producer and host, with a rich overflow of excellent interviews. Finally, once each song has been perfectly framed, they actually let you hear it in its entirety, or nearly. And it's like you're hearing it for the first time." PRX REVIEW by Marjorie Van Halteren

The Two Sides of Sgt. Pepper: An Honest Appraisal of The Beatles' Classic

From Paul Ingles | 01:57:48

Musicians, writers and fans explore the lore and speak their minds on the Beatles' landmark album SGT. PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND marking its 50th anniversary. Special expanded editions of the album with unreleased extras is being released May 26.

Dsc00835_small For decades, The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band has ranked highly on many All-Time Best Album lists. Celebrated as the first quasi-concept album in rock, fans and critics have long lauded the songcraft, the pioneering production sounds, and its colorful, now iconic, cover art. Some say it both reflected and drove the burgeoning youth culture through the "Summer of Love" in 1967. In more recent years, some critics have tried to cut through the mythology of the album and reconsider it in every way. Some have ranked other Beatle albums as superior to Pepper and feel the record has been over-hyped. In this two-hour special, producer and host Paul Ingles ("Everything was Right: The Beatles' Revolver" and "The Beatles in America-1964") presents a lively ride that functions as both a celebration of a landmark recording and a balanced survey of critical opinion about "Sgt. Pepper." Listeners will experience this music in a new way as they'll hear both the stories behind the creation of these memorable tracks as well as thoughtful perspectives that place the work in context. The "Pepper Panel" assembled for the show includes musicians, writers, fans and critics. Some still love Pepper. Some "have issues." It features Steve Turner, Ashley Kahn, Anthony DeCurtis, Jim DeRogatis, Greg Kot, Scott MacNicholl, Ann Powers, Deborah Holland, Richard Goldman, Jim Fusilli, Douglas Grant, Leslie Healy, Stuart Madow, Paul Zollo, Jon Spurney, David Gans, Richie Unterberger, and Howard Massey.



The White Album Listening Party: Revisiting The Beatles' Top-Seller (3-Hour / Non-Newscast Version)

From Paul Ingles | 02:57:04

Beatle fans and musicians gather to re-experience The Beatles' top-selling album, which came to be known as The White Album.

Whitealbum02_small NOTE: THIS IS THE THREE HOUR VERSION OF THIS SPECIAL. IF YOUR STATION CAN CLEAR THE TIME, WE FEEL THIS IS THE BEST EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR LISTENERS AS IT RECREATES THE EXPERIENCE OF LISTENING TO THE WHOLE ALBUM. IF YOU CAN ONLY ACCOMMODATE A TWO-HOUR SLOT, THERE IS A TWO-HOUR VERSION AVAILABLE NOW AT PRX.  THERE IS ALSO A NEWCAST LENGTHED VERSION OF THIS THREE PART SHOW ON PRX.
http://www.prx.org/pieces/29926


November 22, 2008 marks the 40th anniversary of one of The Beatles' most remarkable releases. The two-album set was officially called THE BEATLES, but it became known forever after as The White Album. It was the top-selling of all The Beatles' albums and ranks #11 on the all-time album sales list.

Emerging from what many called their three-album psychedelic period that produced Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour and Yellow Submarine, The Beatles' White Album was a wildly diverse collection that included instant classics ("Back in the U.S.S.R", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Dear Prudence", "Blackbird"), gentle ballads ("Mother Nature's Son", "I Will", "Julia"), raucous electric rock ("Helter Skelter", "Yer Blues") amusing ditties ("Honey Pie", "Savoy Truffle", "Rocky Raccoon"), and surprising experimental tracks ("Revolution #9"). The writing and performing styles of the four individual Beatles became distinct. Many Beatle fans and historians point to the White Album as the beginning of the break-up of the Beatles. In little over a year, the band would be dissolved.

Join award-winning producer Paul Ingles for another one of his in-depth explorations of The Beatles' experience by airing THE WHITE ALBUM LISTENING PARTY. Ingles recalls being 12 years old in 1968 and listening with his best friend to this challenging and, at times, disturbing collection in the basement of his suburban Maryland home. "I knew I couldn't play this one on the family stereo upstairs," says Ingles. "A lot of the music seemed naughty, tortured and edgy." In an effort to re-create that listening experience, Ingles invited about a dozen Beatle fans into the studio to listen through to the album again and share both their memories and more current observations about the landmark music.

Among the guests are Beatle author Steve Turner who shares the stories behind each of the White Album tracks. Also, a panel of musicians help listeners tune into the musicality of The Beatles, calling attention to a certain bass line here, a drum lick there, a production trick over there. Other friends share stories of dancing to "Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da", dropping acid to "Glass Onion", or being scared to death by "Helter Skelter" and wishing for a return of the ol' mop-tops. Hour 3 even includes a special combination of both versions of "Revolution" - the fast single and the slower White Album version, mixed and mashed together, courtesy of engineer Douglas Grant. In addition to Steve Turner, Paul's guest list includes musicians Jon Spurney, David Gans, Kristy Kruger, Douglas Grant, and Rob Martinez. KUNM radio personalities Scott MacNicholl, Luciano Urbano, Suzanne Kryder, and Travis Parkin join in as well.

The program will be offered in several formats to suit your needs. They will be scripted to allow for them to run either consecutively on one hour at a time over multiple days or weeks. - A three-hour version will include full plays of nearly every song on the two albums for the complete White Album experience. - A two-hour version will include most of the best-known tracks in full and excerpts of the rest. - Both versions will be offered at 54:00 lengths to accommodate hourly newscasts. -----

From Paul Ingles | 58:59

Music writers, musicians and fans offer a track-by-track assessment of the 12th and last official Beatles album, LET IT BE, released in May of 1970.

Let_it_be_small The word had been out for about a month that the legendary Beatles were splitting up, when fans were able to buy what would be their 12th and last official release.  The cover featured an individual photo of each Beatle, bordered by black under just three words, Let It Be.  While few would consider it one of the Beatles' best, there are still some undeniable classics, good rockers and some clues to the dissolution of the most famous band in music history.

In this program, producer Paul Ingles presents the 5th in his series of programs deconstructing great Beatles albums.  His panel of musicians, music writers and Beatle fans includes: Anthony DeCurtis- writer for Rolling Stone Magazine, Los Angeles Times Critic Ann Powers, Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times, Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, Beatle book authors Steve Turner and Richie Unterberger, and musicians David Gans, Jon Spurney, Richard Goldman and (in the 59:00 version only) Shawn Colvin.

The Last Year In The Life of The Beatles - 1969/1970

From Paul Ingles | 01:58:01

A two-hour special that chronologically follows The Beatles through 1969 and 1970 as they record their final tracks, struggle with their company, squabble with each other, pursue other interests, and ultimately split apart.

Beatlesend_small

Although their fans didn't know it, the music The Beatles were making in 1969 turned out to be the last recordings they would ever make as a four-some.  When John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr gathered in the studio the day after New Year's that year, the last chapter of their remarkable journey began with the sometimes contentious Get Back / Let It Be sessions.  The band's business affairs began to unravel soon after and several members' minds started drifting toward getting off The Beatles' merry-go-round.  Still they managed to pull off one final masterpiece, Abbey Road, before being photographed together for the last time in August and formally closing the book on the Beatles early in 1970.
 
Award-winning producer Paul Ingles continues his documentation of The Beatles' story with The Last Year in the Life of The Beatles, a two-hour special that chronologically follows the band through 1969 as they record their final tracks, struggle with their company, squabble with each other, pursue other interests, and ultimately split apart.  Listeners will hear behind the scenes studio chatter, rehearsal takes of songs, and finished classics, mixed with informed commentary from a host of music writers, musicians and fans.  Clips from news events and other classic music from the tumultuous year that ended the 1960's will also be blended in.
 
Commentators include writers Steve Turner, Anthony DeCurtis, Mikal Gilmore, Richie Unterberger, Greg Kot, and Ann Powers, and musicians Shawn Colvin, Richard Goldman, Jon Spurney, and David Gans.

(Song List Will Be Posted Shortly)
 
Ingles has produced programs spotlighting many Beatles albums as well as documentaries on Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, Shawn Colvin and Bob Dylan.  More information about his work is at www.paulingles.com.

Paul McCartney: An Appreciation (59:00 / 54:00)

From Paul Ingles | 58:56

Producer Paul Ingles joins with Richard Goldman, an L.A. musician, writer and fan, to detail why Paul McCartney matters in this program of commentary and music.

Paulmccartneythumb_small Paul McCartney is one of the most important musical figures of our times. Producer Paul Ingles turned to California musician, writer and Beatle lecturer Richard Goldman for this appreciation. Goldman suggests that McCartney was among the top ten songwriters, singers, and bass players in the 20th century. He also points out Paul's extraordinary abilities as a multi-instrumentalist. The program illustrates Goldman's claims with music from throughout McCartney's career. Goldman admits to his ambivalence about Sir Paul's more recent material suggesting that the artist may be trapped by his past - trying so hard not to repeat himself and always being judged by his remarkable early work. His disappointment was somewhat lifted by McCartney's 2007 release "Memory Almost Full." This piece is offered in 59:00 and newscast compatible 54:00 versions on this page. Newscast stations should use the Part Two labeled for the 54:00 version. Each has one 60 second break at the end of Part One.

"...this guy comes running in and said 'John Lennon's been killed!' And I said, 'Yeah...right...' and he said 'no no it's true.' I looked more closely at him and saw that he was just ashen-faced. I went out into my car and turned the radio on. All the way across the dial, you heard Beatles songs. And it was as if...it was as if the world had stopped." - Martin Goldsmith

"...every time I would get off the subway at 72nd street and Central Park West...it's just like this...overwhelming sadness." - Shawn Colvin
