Episode 8: Who wants yesterday’s papers

Home / Love & Malice / Episode 8: Who wants yesterday’s papers

Produced by Blue Trumpet for Radio 2RRR, Love & Malice explores 1960s attitudes to sex, love, and romance through the music of the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan.

In this episode, James and Ray study the conversation during the course of 1967, a landmark year, especially for the Beatles. The Stones continue to promote their libertine agenda but reveal a rare sensitivity in the song Ruby Tuesday. The Beatles cement their identification with love as an ideal and an aspiration, culminating in one of their best loved songs … All You Need Is Love.
