Let's go back to 1965 and the release of The Baroque Beatles Book, "arrangements" by composer/musicologist/performer Joshua Rifkin, casting music by the Beatles in the styles of J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel. Sounds like a bad idea, right? Quite the contrary, the album was very popular and even hit the charts for a time. Join Dave as he interviews his musicologist colleague Alison DeSimone, an expert on Baroque music, and learn about this fascinating album. You can check it out here:
