I made a new podcast with a very interesting artiste exactly one year ago today. Mark P. Wirtz is an Alsatian born 3 September 1943 in Strasbourg. He is a pop music record producer, composer, singer, musician, author, and stand-up comedian. As a producer, Wirtz’s most famous output is from the mid to late 1960s, when he worked at Abbey Road Studios with Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick, under contract to EMI. Wirtz is chiefly known for the never-completed A Teenage Opera concept album, from which only four songs were ever finished before a concerned EMI pulled the plug on the project. (RPM, with Wirtz’s direct involvement, pieced together all surviving songs from the unfinished project and issued it on CD).
Mark told me how he’d come to England at the age of 16 and he has had a most wonderful career with a nice podcast interview with me to explain it. It was difficult to make as Mark’s phoneline in the States kept crashing and I had a lot of editing to complete. Here is the link to the podcast.
school. A student wished to make some potassium hydroxide
solution (aqueous) and decided to throw a large lump of
potassium into a bucket of water.Out of the corner of his eye, the professor observed what
the student was about to do and hurried over. After
confirming this was what was intended, he asked the student
to first stir the water in the bucket for five minutes
before adding the potassium.Puzzled, the student followed after him to ask the purpose
of this action.
“It will give me time to get away!” said the professor!
