The Beatles

Fifty years ago, in June 1967, the Beatles released their seminal album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Not long after, Studs wove together a program in his free-associative style. We’ll hear excerpts from the recording, Studs reciting some of the songs’ lyrics, and interviews with young people in Chicago. These may not all be directly related to the Beatles, but as Studs says at the end of the hour, perhaps in some way they are related after all.
