So long, Sir David Frost

Noted British broadcaster Sir David Frost died yesterday at age 74. The Guardian has an overview of his illustrious career here.

Along with his pioneering work on the satirical broadcast "That Was the Week that Was" in the early 1960s and his riveting interviews with President Richard Nixon in the late 1970s, Frost had a long association with the Beatles.

Beatles producer Sir George Martin penned the theme tune to one of Frost's TV series, titling the song "By George! It's the David Frost Theme." Frost also interviewed members of the Beatles numerous times and the band performed "Hey Jude" on his program in 1968.

Here's a clip of the Beatles on the Frost show, and a great, early interview Sir David did with Paul McCartney in 1964.
