Here Comes the Sun: The Spiritual and Musical Journey of George Harrison

Night-Light Radio

Joshua Greene, who studied meditation with the legendary Beatle George Harrison, draws on personal remembrances, recorded conversations, and firsthand accounts to create a moving portrait of Harrison's spiritual life, his profound contribution to the Beatles' music, and previously unpublished anecdotes about his time with music legends Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, and others."Many well-known artists have touched people's hearts with their music, but few have ever succeeded in touching people's souls. That was George's gift, and his story is described here with affection and taste. A wonderful book."–Mia FarrowJoshua M. Greene earned his master's degree from Hofstra University, where he taught Hinduism and Holocaust history until his retirement in 2013. He has spoken at the Pentagon, the Judge Advocates College, and the New York Public Library Distinguished Author series, and he lectures frequently before state bar associations. His most recent book is a biography of Srila Prabhupada, titled Swami in a Strange Land.

Yellow Submarine (1968) "The Beatles" John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, & George Harrison

Book Vs Movie Podcast

Book Vs. Movie: Yellow SubmarineThe Beatles Classic Animated Psychedelic TripIn 1968, The Beatles were the biggest band in the world and were eager to finish their United Artists deal (the company that produced A Hard Days Night and Help!) with a film that would uplift their audience (which included kids and adults) and take the animation world to a new level beyond Disney and stop-action holiday specials. Yellow Submarine took a hodgepodge of Beatles classics, new numbers, filler tunes, and a “flower power" mindset to cement their reputations as daring creators. There is simply no easy way to describe the impact the “Fab Four” had on world culture in the 1960s in one show. However, we thought that expanding the idea of a “book” to an iconic song and how they showed their art in a whole new format was as interesting and an adaptation as we could unpack. The story of the residents of Pepperland who are under attack by the Blue Meanies and subsequently rescued by Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearst Club Band (n their yellow submarine) is weird and funny. Directed by Canadian George Dunning and written by Lee Minoff and Erich Segal (of future Love Story fame) it features just a few moments of the lads of Liverpool at the end (thus fulfilling their contract) and is chock full of songs that will make you sing and hum and feel wonderful. It’s now considered a classic in animation, but is it any good? In this ep the Margos discuss:The story of The BeatlesAnimation in the 1960sThe animated voices: John Clive (John Lennon,) Geoffrey Hughes (Paul McCartney,) Peter Batten (George Harrison,) Paul Angelis (narrator/Chief Blue Meanie/Ringo Starr,) Dick Emery (Max/Lord Mayor,) and Lance Percival (“Young/Old Fred”.)

Episode 199: Songs under the Microscope, Vol. 25- ”Any Road” by George Harrison...plus an Epic Rant!

I’ve Got a Beatles Podcast!

In this episode, we go back into the lab and dissect George Harrison's song, "Any Road" from his posthumous 2002 album Brainwashed. How does the song stack up in George's catalog, what's interesting about the music and lyrics, and can Chris find any covers of note? Following our discussion of "Any Road," Chris launches into an epic rant about the latest McCartney release (the McCartney I,II, III box set) and why the McCartney camp doesn't seem to be listening to what fans actually want. What do you think? Also, if you want to send us a recorded audio question for our Q/A 200th episode, send an audio file/link to ivegotabeatlespodcast@hotmail.com.
