Winter of Discontent
A Beatles Podcast
It’s January 1969 and The Beatles are commercially at their peak with a number one Album in the charts and the summers smash hit ‘Hey Jude.’ Professionally things couldn’t be worse, however. Paul has convinced them to rehearse for a live show before the cameras, but his band mates have misgivings which will only multiply as the days progress. This is ‘The Winter of Discontent’. And we’re going to listen in to what will transpire.

Brilliant; mesmerizing deep dive
It’s all brilliant. Can’t wait for more: the first 8 were mesmerizing. It’s a well researched deep dive. How can an hour by hour analysis of a studio session work? This way. Hoping to hear more before Peter Jackson’s film in August

This podcast is awesome!
The detail in this is just what this Beatle nerd needs! I love the fact I’m learning new stuff here. Not opinions but proper fascinating insight. Live the muso leanings too. Thanks so much for producing this.

5 star without the Music Beds
Fantastic forensic look at this period of the Beatles history where they expected the magic to happen straight away and it didn’t. Would be 5 stars for me if the music beds were dropped or reduced in volume. They are unnecessary and it is difficult to hear the narrator sometimes.

January 3rd - John and Yoko finally arrive. The Beatles start the session proper warming up by running through some good natured covers and parody’s of their own songs. The most difficult dialogue so far to decipher; see how well I did.

It’s January 3rd 1969; the second day of filming. It’s a good opportunity to spend some quality time with Paul and Ringo at the Piano.
