It was 50 years ago today that The Beatles were in the studio working on the follow-up to their 1966 album, Revolver, and on June 1, 1967, they released Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Sgt. Pepper's has been called the beginning of the album era. In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked it #1 on their "500 Greatest Albums of All Time." It is the best-selling album of the 1960s.

Deconstructing "Sgt. Pepper's" is a filmed lecture showing at Real Art Ways in Hartford starting April 14. Lecturer and musicologist Scott Freiman joins Colin and Hartford's favorite local musicologist Steve Metcalf for the hour.

GUESTS:

  • Scott Freiman - A musicologist, a composer, and a producer, and the lecturer behind the Deconstructing The Beatles series
  • Steve Metcalf - Director of the University of Hartford’s Presidents’ College, and WNPR's Metcalf on Music columnist
