If you’ve listened to the Psychedelic Experience, well, at all, then you know the Psych Professor and DJ Mellow Yellow are huge fans of both the Beatles and Mad Men.

Christina Hendricks. Just because.

Because Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner is also a huge Beatles fan, those two worlds often intersect. He famously paid $250,000 out of his own pocket for the rights to play “Tomorrow Never Knows” on an episode so you could say he’s almost into the Beatles as much as the Psychedelic Experience guys are into Christina Hendricks (Va-va-voom!) Even taking away Ms. Hendricks it’s still easy to see why Mad Men is so appealing to both the Psych Professor and DJ Mellow Yellow with its cool 1960s aesthetic and numerous pop culture references.

With the show approaching its final season, it is now set in the late 1960s and the psychedelic influence is in full effect. And did we mention its obsession with the Beatles? As we talked about in our July 24th show, a great article written by Dave Nemetz about Mad Men and The Beatles appeared on Yahoo back in April.

Running off the notion that Matthew Weiner is drawing inspiration for the final season of Mad Men from Abbey Road, Nemetz does his best to connect every season of the show to a Beatles album. And he does a darn good job of it. Check out the article here and let us know what you think about it in the comments section below.

If you haven't watched Mad Men, these beautiful people should be reason enough to start.
