Can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to this episode! Even more than Nic's episode about my old band, The Rutles.

@Ron Nasty Were you really involved in the Rutles? Probably not but would be cool if you were.

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

@meanmistermustard Soon there should be a podcast available with the Ronald Grelsamer and Lizzie Bravo interviews. (And a potential interview later in the year with Barbara Dickson.) As soon as we get that fired up and started, I'll let you all know.

Just listened to an advance copy of tonight's show. Sounds great - WETSRoosa's a good interviewer! (and didn't know those other David Bowie space songs)

Been reminding myself ALL WEEK to tune in for this one - I can't possibly forget now! :D

...OK, never heard this David Bowie song before but I don't like it (and I especially don't like this Pet Shop Boys mix) :(

Very enjoyable. I could listen to Ron talk about the space race all night.

Thanks for playing 'Hey Bulldog' - one of my favorites! Great story on how Ron "discovered" it. Those little discoveries back in the day were like finding gold. Ya hadda be there.

Nice work, Nick - it's a cool show.

I listened to it again. I was tired last night. I got more out of it today.

And if you are planning to buy Into the Sky With Diamonds, don't forget to use Joe's link.

I'd love it if someone who actually knew Mal Evans was made aware of this book

On this week's Fab Files we begin a three-part series focusing on each album of the Anthology series as today we look at many (but not all) of the goodies on the Anthology 1 album released in November of 1995. This album covers the time period from the band's earliest years right up to the Beatles for Sale sessions. We've got a song with a national health eyeball, landmark appearances at the Palladium and on Sullivan, Stu Sutcliffe on bass, Tony Sheridan rocking the microphone and much, much more. Anthology 1 on this week's Fab Files Friday evening at 10 PM (EDT) on WETS FM/HD1, as well as Saturday afternoon at 3 PM (EDT) and late Sunday night at midnight (EDT) 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
