retrotalk2022 - Get Back as time travel

And here's some retrotalk from yours truly - a discussion with Francesco Tenaglia for The Music Folder,  a talk-series curated by Archivio Storico Ricordi, which investigates the intersection of music, memory, and arts. This was done a little while ago, so the focus initially is on the recently-shown Get Back 8-hour Beatles documentary series and the uncannily persistent dominance and prominence of the Fab Four in our culture (chiming with Luke Turner's swipe at Maccagemony in the previous post). Then the retrotalk moves onto curatorial and annotative culture, obituary and elegy writing, the deejay as archivist, completism and collectoritis, my work as a teacher....  You can find the audio of our discussion here and a marginally tidied-up transcription here
