When I'm Sixty-Four

PBS has just announced a major new television series, On the Record: the Soundtrack of Our Lives, an eight-hour series that traces thehistory of recorded music and its impact on popular culture. Sir George Martin, who produced the Beatles, will host.

So why do I blog this? Sir George Martin appeared at the 2004 IdeaFestival, where he discussed the making of Sgt. Pepper, perhaps the most influential album of all time.

You never know what you'll find at the IdeaFestival.
