Classic Rock 102.5 KZOK Seattle aired this Rock Radio special on the 20th Anniversary of the release of The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album. There were many of these kinds of specials produced for AOR and Classic Rock stations in the 80s and 90s. This is very well produced, featuring interviews with members of the band and record manager George Martin. This not only included all the music on the album, but noteworthy songs of importance from the year 1967, along with background information on the emerging culture war and political interest in the music of the day.

It’s a history lesson worth listening to, as younger visitors might not understand the influence that the Beatles had in the late 60s, nor the atmosphere in American society from that era. All tastefully presented by Classic Rock KZOK.
