Dave White Presents

“Dave White Presents”–The Beatles. Bowie. Elton. Lou Reed. Supertramp. Duran Duran.

 While just a teenager in London, Ken Scott went to work at EMI Studios in hopes of becoming a recording engineer. In short order, not only did that dream come true, he became one of only five engineers to work with The Beatles. After helping mix tracks for Magical Mystery Tour and the White Album, Ken moved over to the producer’s chair to work with John, George, and Ringo on their solo projects as well as Bowie, Elton, Jeff Beck, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Supertramp, The Tubes, Duran Duran, Missing Persons . . .

 This year, the now legendary Ken Scott published his memories of his work in the studio in Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust: Off-the-record with The Beatles, Bowie, Elton, and so much more. It’s quite a book for any music fan, and on Tuesday, Aug. 14, Ken shares many of his stories and anecdotes on online radio’s “Dave White Presents.” In a lengthy and lively conversation with Wes Britton, Scott traces his career, takes you behind the scenes of many of the most important hits and albums in rock, and describes some special and poignant moments he shared with the stars.

 Now, this is seriously cool: for DWP, Scott created an exclusive mash-up of one song he produced for both Lou Reed and Duran Duran. You’ll have to join us to find out what it is—you won’t hear it anywhere else!

 What was the TV series that launched the career of Michael Douglas? It was The Streets of San Francisco that ran on ABC from 1972 to 1978. Co-starring veteran actor Karl Malden, the show was a police drama filmed on location and remained popular until Douglas left the series to do movies in 1977.

Jim Rosin, author of a new book on the show, tells Dave White the nitty-gritty of how The Streets of San Francisco was a study in getting the details right. When you’re filming in the actual streets of your show’s title, you get authenticity but also a set of problems you don’t have on the studio lot or out on some remote location. We’ve got some funny stories for you, including a certain car crash that started it all . . .   

So come with us behind the scenes in the recording of some of the greatest music of all time and learn about making television history from a different angle on the next DAVE WHITE PRESENTS, Tuesday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–
