While digging through Usenet, I stumbled on these three unidentified tracks that pick apart three of the Beatles' original multitrack masters, isolating and highlighting pieces from "She's Leaving Home," "A Day in the Life," and "Come Together." It's an astounding, and very listenable, glimpse into their recording process.

Unfortunately, I don't have any information about the source. In the "Come Together" one, they mention one of the narrators is named "Steve." Beyond that, I haven't had any luck finding where they came from. Can anyone identify them? I'd love, love, love to hear more.
Update: It's a BBC Radio 6 program called Record Producers: The Extended Cut, hosted by Richard Allinson and Steve Levine, that aired last month. Unfortunately, the original BBC broadcast is no longer available on their site.
