About Beatles Songwriting Academy


  1. Thanks so much for putting out these podcasts. I've enjoyed both of them a lot. I've tried putting together a podcast a time or two, and I know how much work it takes to get a high quality podcast, so I appreciate your effort.

    There is so much gold to be mined from deconstructing songs by great and innovative songwriters, and these guys certainly fit that bill, and are definitely my all time favorites. I am anxiously awaiting your next 'cast.

  2. Thanks Patrick (or may I call you 'famous'?) - I'll try to keep 'em coming...

    1. You may call me famous, if it pleases you, although everyone knew me as Nancy.

  3. Hi, is it still possible to hear this podcast?

    1. Hi Multiself - email me matt (at) matt blick (dot com) and I'll see what I can do ;-)
