SGT. PEPPER TRIBUTE June 1, 2007
June 1, 2007  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment
 
My favorite report ever. Fresh Air executive producer Danny Miller, all-around great guy, acknowledged and indulged my passion for everything Beatles by asking me to put together a tribute keyed to the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The idea was to do a track-by-track sampling of the best cover versions of songs from that album, and all I had to do was winnow through my embarrassingly anal Beatles covers collection. It was the most fun I ever had putting together a Fresh Air piece - and also got the biggest reaction of anything I ever did for radio. Special thanks to both Danny, and Jonathan Menjivar, for assembling this report, which aired 40 years to the day after Sgt. Pepper was released.

David,
Greetings! Tried to listen to the audio of your St. Peppers' 40-year-anniversary tribute, but couldn't figure out how to do it. Help!
XXOO,
Liz

Dear Liz: Go to the pull-down FRESH AIR menu on the main TVWW page, click on Bianculli NPR Archive, and use the search function on their site to find Sgt. Pepper. A little tricky... but it's worth it. One of my favorite Fresh Air pieces ever. (Of mine, that is.) -DB
