A sprawling talk with record maker John Leckie. As a tape operator at Abbey Road, he oversaw the All Things Must Pass and Plastic Ono Band sessions and rolled tape on Pink Floyd, Syd Barrett, Kevin Ayers, Fela Kuti, and more. Soon he began producing records, and for the last five decades, he’s been an in-demand creative force in the studio. He produced Radiohead’s The Bends, plus Dr. John, Spiritualized, My Morning Jacket, Los Lobos, and many more. He joins host Jason Woodbury this week on Transmissions to discuss his extensive history and much more.Transmissions :: John Leckie
