Featuring guests, controversial debates, and a good, ol‘ fashioned sense of humor, BC the Beatles (pronounced ”Because the Beatles”) refreshes the conversation around the Fab Four, their music, and their world.

The creators behind the Monkees’ hit television series (and the band itself) hoped to establish an American Beatles - although the band’s critics would often refer to them as the “Pre-Fab Four.” While much of the music community despised the Monkees, the Beatles… actually loved them. Join us as we explore why with Grammy-nominated producer, historian, and author Andrew Sandoval, whose new book chronicles the Monkees’ entire career from the birth of Peter Tork in 1942 to the very last day of 1970.
