Time to get some weed eating done before the show starts.

Now, I'll think about the Beatles when I hear Pretty Woman. Interesting connection.

That girl band sounded really British.

Mom remembers the Bill Black Band.

Nice mix to have the Asian songs included.

Beginning with this week's episode, Fab Files will air at its new time on Saturdays! Instead of 11 AM, we will now air at 3 PM EST so Fab Files is now a late lunch show rather than a Saturday brunch show. (Plus I don't have to go head-to-head with the popular NPR program Wait Wait Don't Tell Me one channel over.) The late Sunday night rebroadcast time is still midnight. Again, that's now Saturday afternoons at 3 PM and late Sunday night at midnight on WETS HD2! And to celebrate the new time change, on this week's episode we play in full the New album from Paul McCartney! See the very first post in this topic for info on how to pick up the show online! And now Fab Files is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/fabfilesonWETSFM

On this week's Fab Files, it's an episode inspired by one of the moderators here on this very forum as we delve into the bass wizardry of Paul McCartney during his Beatle years. The early Beatle days saw Paul rock the distinctive violin-shaped Hofner 500/I Electric Bass, and we'll hear that bass in action, then in '65 Paul switched to the Rickenbacker 400I, and we'll hear that bass, too. Plus, we'll really emphasize the bass guitar on a certain few Beatle tracks. Paul the Bass Player on this week's Fab Files Saturday afternoon November 16th at 3 PM with a re-broadcast late Sunday November 17th at midnight exclusively on WETS HD2.

Nice radio piece there today, Wetsroosa. Nice of you to give the Forum a shout out. You got nearly all my favorite bass lines in there. If you had a c

a couple of more minutes you might have thrown in "Nowhere Man" and "Another Day," but one never tires of "Rain,"Hey Bulldog," "Something,"Lucy in the Sky…" etc...

I'd never heard the bass line to "Something" in isolated fashion. It nearly sounded like some of the lower notes were out of tune. Anyone else feel that way?

I didn't know George played bass on "Drive My Car" - but was it McCartney's bass line?

I'll get to listen to the show tomorrow, and am looking forward to it.

It should be noted however, that the bass part on Drive My Car is actually the subject of debate. Much of the confusion centres on George's description of his role on the song, giving confusing statements that seemed to say that he played bass. The breakdown of the track contradicts this however, with the basic track consisting of Paul playing bass, George playing the same bass part on guitar, John on tambourine, and Ringo on drums. Paul would then go on to overdub lead and rhythm guitar parts, John piano, and Ringo cowbell.

Glad you all got to enjoy it. I was visiting my folks up in Charlotte, so I didn't get to hear it myself.

As for "Drive My Car," everything I read said George on bass, so that's what I went with.

It's a special Fab Files this week as this coming weekend is the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's untimely death and the Fab Files will look back on that day with snippets from the RKO Radio interview that wound up being John's last ever interview, tribute songs written by his former Beatle bandmates, live-at-the-time reactions to his death, rememberances and much more. If any Fab Files episode could ever qualify as "can't miss," this would be the one. December 8th, 1980 on this week's Fab Files Saturday December 7th at 3 PM (EST) and late Sunday December 8 at midnight (EST) on WETS HD2.

I've asked Nick to repost. This week I think is the White Album as one disc. Two opportunities to listen, check first post.

On this week's Fab Files bonanza, I take the White Album- arguably the greatest double album in rock history- and dare to make it a single album. Playing by the rules of Beatles records past (14 songs, 1 song for George on each side, 1 Ringo song, etc.), the Fab Files take out 16 songs and leave in 14. Which of the songs made the cut? Which got left out? And are White Album versions of songs replaced by another version? One Record White Album on this week's Fab Files Saturday December 14 at 3 PM (EST) and late Sunday December 15 at midnight (EST) on WETS HD2. See the very first post in this topic for info on how to pick up the show online!
