On tomorrow night’s lively and informative edition of the weekly Beatles roundtable, Things We Said Today, Ken, Steve, Al and Allan pay tribute to engineer Dennis Ferrante, who worked with John Lennon, among other music luminaries. The show kicks off at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
Ferrante not only engineered for a star-studded list of recording artists from Lennon, Waylon Jennings and Alice Cooper to the 1910 Fruitgum Company and the Raspberries, he started out as a rock singer. Ken delivers a passionate tribute to Ferrante, a true legend.
The panel then turns to the subject of best solo Beatles albums. Up for conversation: the panel’s favorite releases from Lennon and Ringo Starr. Which long players do Ken, Steve, Al and Allan hold dear? Does Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band album hit the spot? What about Mind Games, Imagine, and Walls and Bridges? And for Ringo, does the star-studded Ringo platter hit the spot, or do Ringo Rama and Stop and Smell the Roses sing sweetly? Tune in tomorrow night at 9 pm ET and find out!

Other well-known Beatles experts sometimes sit in with the core group. Things We Said Today airs every Tuesday night at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
