Sep 2, 2023

Returning guest and renowned producer John Leckie is back on SATB and this time he brought his friends; colleagues from EMI with impressive credentials of their own, who also worked with The Beatles: Nick Webb and Roger Ferris

It was a real delight to be a fly-on-the-wall as three guys who've known each other for decades spun stories about working at the most famous recording facility on earth, and the clients they supported. Among the topics that came up: 
  • What well-known event coincided with the day John Leckie interviewed for a position at EMI
  • Quick takes on George Martin - Norman Smith - Geoff Emerick - Ken Scott - Ken Townsend - Alan Parsons - Peter Bown and other EMI staffers
  • Stealing from Mick Jagger
  • Their takes on Get Back
  • The 1971 Wings Launch Party
  • Phil Spector
  • Sessions for "All You Need is Love" and "You Know My Name"
  • Seventeen Watts by the late Mo Foster
  • In the studio with Paul and Wings
  • IRA bomb scares of the 70s
