Our guest is world-renowned authority on the Beatles, Kenneth Womack. Kenneth joins us to talk about the Beatles and religion, and to discuss his many books about the Beatles and their cultural influence.
Ken’s latest book project involves a two-volume, full-length biography devoted to famed Beatles producer Sir George Martin. His other Beatles-related books include Long and Winding Roads: The Evolving Artistry of the Beatles (2007) and The Cambridge Companion to the Beatles (2009), which was named as The Independent’s “Music Book of the Year.” In 2014, Ken published The Beatles Encyclopedia: Everything Fab Four. Ken’s books about the Beatles are included in the permanent collection of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Library and Archives.
Ken is Dean of the Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Monmouth University, where he also serves as Professor of English.
