The Beatles "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" -- We wrap up our longtime tradition of Monday Spindale Cycles with what many consider the greatest rock album of all time. It was indeed the first rock LP to receive an Album of the Year Grammy, and is widely considered a first for concept albums, Art Rock, Progressive Rock, and the Album Era. June 1st marks the 50th anniversary of its release, and we’ll mark it as the kickoff to our 50th anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love, too (stay tuned for details on that!) 

Fifty years ago, the Beatles released an album heralded as one of the best rock records in history. Thursday night, WNCW airs the radio documentary Everything Was Right: The Beatles’ Revolver from 9 to 11pm. Host Paul Ingles explores the landmark album's story and influence in depth, talking with historians, musicians, music critics, and fans like Jim Derogatis, Shawn Colvin, Mark Erelli, and David Gans. The two hour special also spotlights each song on Revolver.
