BPR: Judy Collins, Graham Nash, How To Turn Two Buck Chuck Into A Two Hundred Dollar Bottle Of Wine
- Do you prefer "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" or "Her Satanic Majesty's Request?" Would you rather have "Sticky Fingers" or "Revolver" as your desert island album? The Beatles and the Rolling Stones have been locked in a generations-long battle for rock supremacy. Some of the animus is manufactured, but fan fervor is very real. Jim Braude and Margery Eagan talk with writer John McMillian about his new book, Beatles vs. Stones.
- Singer-songwriter Judy Collins joins Jim and Margery to talk about her PBS special, "Judy Collins: Live in Ireland."
- We've all heard of sex, drugs, and rock & roll- but Graham Nash took it to an extreme level. The wildly talented rocker, formerly of Crosby Stills Nash & Young, stopped by the Boston Public Radio studios to talk about his new book, Wild Tales.
- Emmett G. Price III and Edgar B. Herwick III broke down the new Michael Jackson album, Xscape. Price is a Northeastern University professor, and a regular guest on BPR's "All Revved Up." Herwick is the man behind the WGBH Curiosity Desk.
- Jonathon Alsop, founder of The Boston Wine School verifies new research on how music affects the way you experience wine. Alsop also validates alternative ways to uncork a bottle of wine if you find yourself without a corkscrew.
