1st June 1967 was the release date of one of the biggest concept albums of the 1960's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles.

To coincide with the release by The Beatles of a suite of lavishly presented ‘Sgt. Pepper’ Anniversary Edition packages, several local radio stations across New Zealand will be playing a special 1 hour programme to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the album's release.

This programme is written, produced and presented by US radio host and Beatles fan Archer, who hosted a 2 hour weekly Beatles show in 2008 and 2009 called The Beatles Basement, which ran on Radio 1XX in the Bay Of Plenty.

The 1 hour radio special is a behind the scenes journey through the recording sessions for the Sgt. Pepper album, with insights from The Beatles themselves, along with the album's engineer and also its producer, the late Sir George Martin, as well as some other guests who there at the time and got a sneak peak at what The Beatles were up to in 1966/1967, while they were putting this masterpiece album together.

The show contains original mono mixes and well as new stereo mixes of some songs for the special 2017 album package.
