Join Ian Boothby and David Dedrick from the Sneaky Dragon podcast for a -sometimes humorous – look at The Beatles’ album Help!. They had lots to say about the album this week – some criticism and some praise – and Dave gives a quick overview of The Beatles North American albums.

Thanks for listening.

David, I’m thoroughly enjoying your podcast – it’s fantastically entertaining.
Is there ANY chance you can do the show solo? Your partner Ian adds nothing but noise. A LOT of noise! He’s not even a super-fan (like everyone who listens to the podcast). He’s a casual listener with zero to add, except horribly unfunny “jokes” that wouldn’t make a 12 year-old snicker. Seriously, he’s really that awful. Believe me.

Hi Gordon,


And thanks for listening.

I’m sorry you won’t let David do the podcast alone.

You are a show killer.

Man, I already felt bad about listening to the show despite not being a super-fan (Do I need a cape, or just a weird sense of entitlement?), but then the drummer from an ELO spin-off band had to go and make things extra-awkward.

Im loving them! Catching up slowly and buying the tracks I dont have! Great job to Ian and David!

Thank you for the fun and interesting information on such an amazing and important band. Your two personalities work very well together. The differences between your angles and personalities cheer me right up and make the show what it is. I glad i found it and look forward to checking out you other stuff later. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Don.

Hi there, another good podcast. I have read somewhere that “you’ve got to hide your love away” was about Brian Epstein in an era where homosexuality was illegal. Have you heard anything about that?


David Dedrick August 25, 2016 at 9:15 pm

It’s possible, Catherine, but, as John tended to write only about himself in his songs, it’s most likely about his own life – just as the song “Help!” was about his feelings of depression and loneliness.
