For the last 17 years, professor Gordon Thompson has taught courses and led seminars on The Beatles that have had students analyzing music, comparing biographical accounts, and placing the band in the historical-cultural context of the 1960s. In connection with these courses, he and his students have developed “Beatlemore Skidmania,” an annual concert featuring an assortment of campus musicians that began as an informal, end-of-semester musical celebration. Professor Thompson sits down with Beatlemore 2017 producer Will Scott '18 to talk about Thompson's final performance. Had to miss Beatlemore 2017? Take a listen to the entire show in episodes 11, 12, and 13!
