Special guest for this week and next: Dr. Kit O'Toole (http://kitotoole.com/). Check out her Beatles book ("Songs We Were Singing"), Michael Jackson book ("Michael Jackson FAQ"), and her "Deep Soul" column on "Blinded By Sound". Our topic is the Beatles, George Martin, Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson. There is more uniting the two acts than Michael's eventual purchase of the Northern Songs catalog. This week, we cover the era up through 1980. "It's My Party", Motown, The Oscars and "Let It Be", "Girlriend", "Countdown", "The Wiz", "George Harrison" and more.
