SGT. PEPPER TRIBUTE June 1, 2007
June 1, 2007  | By David Bianculli
 
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.
