Forgive me if this seems like an incredibly stupid question, but have you tried to get your show aired on Beatles-A-Rama?

 

Never heard it. Will look into it. I've been pondering the idea of reaching out to the Breakfast with the Beatles gang to see if they'd be interested in me appearing on a show of theirs one day. Highly doubt it'd ever happen, but you never know…

Cool show. I had to do some last minute tweaking of the ol' computer to get it streaming on Linux (just installed a new distro Sunday, wasn't done setting it up) so I missed the first 10 minutes and got called away before it was over… but the hour or so I got to actually relax and tune in was, shall we say, fab! heart

Alas, I again, fell asleep. 

But no more! For I have discovered, thanks to the magic of the witch (sorry) Ahhh Girl, that the Fab Files have been moved to the Day of Satur! As I have no learning on said Day of Satur, this Three O'Clock timing works magnificently for me. Thank you, Magician wetsroosa for having the magical ability to have this program moved. No more falling asleep for me, Sir Faceo!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have dragon riding lessons to attend.

I am honored, oh brave dragon-rider-in-training, to be a part of your story. May your future Days of Satur at the hour of three be merry with music.

On this week's Fab Files we continue our look at the Fabs' live performances, and this week takes us back to 1965. First, from April of that year, we have their short but excellent set at the NME Poll Winners Concert in Wembley. Then we have in its entirety their August '65 show on a hot summer night at Atlanta Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. Plus, a song from their landmark Shea Stadium show, which took place a few days before their Atlanta gig. Live in '65 on this week's Fab Files Saturday February 15 at 3 PM (EST) with a re-broadcast late Sunday February 16 at midnight (EST) on WETS HD2. 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

Oooo, ooo, will there be dragons???

Just kidding. Unless there will be, which would be really awesome. I'm actually listening to it on Saturday this time instead of the midnight! 

By the way, that whole thing with the witches and the dragons sprouted out of my use of "alas" in the first sentence. I just saw it and was like "that's a medieval thing to say" So that happened.

Faceo, I guess you could Imagine Dragons. No, wait. Strike that. This isn't a "covers" episode. Think only about the Beatles during the show this weekend.

On this week's show we wrap up our series of the Beatles' live concerts with selections of two concerts from 1966: first, their June 1966 show from Tokyo's Budokan Hall, and then from their August '66 finale from San Francisco's Candlestick Park. Then, the second half of the show will focus on the surprise that I promised. The surprise does stay with the live performance theme. Live in '66 on this week's Fab Files Saturday February 22nd at 3 PM and late Sunday February 23rd at midnight on WETS HD2. See the very first post in this topic for info on how to pick up the show online!

Before we begin, I must first say that the episode I mentioned at the end of last week's episode will not be the one airing this weekend. And the Paul-themed episode I told AG that would air will not as well, due to technical mishaps that need to be fixed. That episode will air next week.

Now with that out of the way…

On this week's Fab Files we listen to nothing but the Best… Pete Best. We hear the music he made while he was a Beatle (1960-62), but the majority of this week's episode will focus on the music he made after his Beatle days with his various namesake groups. Pete might not get a whole lot of respect, but he will get his due this week. The Music of Pete Best on this week's Fab Files Saturday March 1 at 3 PM (EST) and late Sunday March 2 at midnight (EST) on WETS HD2.

On this week's Fab Files we go back to the halcyon years of Reaganomics, Nintendo and New Coke: the 1980s, and in particular, Paul McCartney's music that he made in the '80s. His output during that decade gets a bad rap, with critics calling it everything from lightweight to "40 lashes with a wet noodle" wimpy. But is any of that true? We investigate the good ("My Brave Face"), the bad ("Spies Like Us"), the ugly ("The Girl is Mine") and all points in between of Paul McCartney in the '80s on this week's Fab Files Saturday March 8 at 3 PM (EST) and late Sunday March 9 at midnight (EDT) on WETS HD2.

Here we go!

On the topic, I'd say the 80s were pretty bad for him, with the only good album being Tug Of War. Coming Up being a non Tug Of War highlight.

Question, do you do it live, or record it beforehand and broadcast on Saturday? Because if it's live you could try to make it more interactive, like having a question of the day and asking people to answer on things like Twitter, or on this forum, then reading answers at the end. Don't know how big your audience is, but it could be cool.

Recorded weeks beforehand. No way we could do this live for various reasons. Although if I get enough listeners, I'd love to do an all-request show where the listeners pick the songs.

Flowers in the Dirt and McCartney II are excellent albums which bookend a very inconsistent era for Paul; he released 7 albums in the 80's (not including the All The Best compilation), 3 of which would be very high in my top 10 Paul albums (including Wings). Not bad when dressed up like that.

I forgot about Flowers In The Dirt, but McCartney II isn't really that good.

On this week's Fab Files we start the first of a two-part series of episodes looking at the Abbey Road album with a special airing of Paul Ingles' 2009 radio special A Spin Down Abbey Road, which features commentary from musicians, authors and critics talking about what makes that album so special. This week's episode listens to the first half of the documentary that covers all the songs that made up Side One of Abbey Road from "Come Together" to "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," then we hear every song from Side One covered by the likes of Aerosmith, Raffi, Florence and the Machine, and more. A Spin Down Abbey Road- Side One, on this week's Fab Files Saturday March 15 at 3 PM (EDT) and late Sunday March 16 at midnight (EDT) exclusively on WETS HD2.

This will be the first week that I am going to try to listen over a phone 4g connection and pumping it through my car stereo. I will be on a long drive Saturday. Hope it works. If not, I'll catch it the following night.

No worries, sir. I'll stop and get it all set up as the time approaches. If I loose 4g in the middle of nowhere Arkansas, I'll just listen on Sunday night.
