2017.26 You Gave Me The Answer — Giles Martin, George Martin, Sam Okell, Wings, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles-world is fortunate to have a number of Father-son team ups throughout their history. One of these has been display on late, as Giles Martin was chosen to do the media and be "the face" of the fiftieth anniversary release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In this show, the WTWF guys talk a bit about the technology involved in recording (two, four, eight, 16-track, and the virtually limitless possibilities available in the digital realm), how it shaped the Beatles' music, and how we experienced those sounds through the various reproduction formats in our homes (mono, stereo, quad, 5.1, Dolby Atmos). We close with thoughts on the making and remaking of Sgt. Pepper, includingthoughts from Sam Okell, highlights from Giles' recent appearances, and some classic George Martin interviews.
