On November 29, 2001, Beatle George Harrison passed away after a long illness. One week later, Beatle fans throughout the world observed the 21st anniversary of the death of John Lennon. While we recognize the talent of the "Fab Four," it should be noted that all the recordings of the Beatles sound the way they do - because of one man. Sir George Martin (known by many as the "fifth Beatle"), the producer of all of the Beatles recordings from their first to their last. On September 26, 2001, Sir George Martin spoke at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, about his career (over 50 years) as a record producer, before, during, and after the Beatles. 90.3 WCPN'S Jim Goldurs, stopped by the Rock Hall earlier that day, and spoke with Martin at the Rock Hall's studios.
