Sir Paul In Albany

    A musician, musicologist, professor, and chair of Skidmore’s Music Department, Gordon Thompson has been studying British popular music in general and The Beatles in particular for almost 20 years.

His book Please Please Me: Sixties British Pop, Inside Out, brought a fresh take on a well-known subject through interviews with artist-and-repertoire managers, music directors, recording engineers, songwriters, and session musicians active in London in that decade.

He joins us to talk about what it means to have Paul McCartney playing The Times Union Center in Albany, NY this coming weekend.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
