During the BB summer clean old threads are and will continue to be discovered that highlighted up-and-coming shows at the time of their posting, not wanting to delete them they will therefore be merged to this thread. The original first post of this reworked thread was by Ron Nasty on the 31st January at 8:41pm.

Calling all Ringo fans!

He's scheduled for an appearance on ITV's Loose Women on 12th April. We might get to hear some of his new album (which he's there to promote).

They are also planning to show him some of The Beatles Hidden Gallery photographs - they've not been published before and aren't even on sale yet - so he's getting a very sneaky peek (along with a million viewers!). Will be interesting to see if he can actually remember when they were taken after years of being photographed! They were taken in the early 60s, so perhaps not!

Just listened to him on Wogan's Radio 2 show.

Says he happier than he's ever been and loved producing his new record on his own; doesn't regret saying he'll not sign anythnig anymore (although he didn't realise such a big fuss would be made of it); enjoyed it when Paul 'dropped by' to record with him in LA...... He was very up-beat.

Saturday, 20:00 on BBC Radio 4

Synopsis

Episode image for The Split Up (and the Almost Inevitable Reunion)


To
mark the 40th anniversary of the Beatles disbanding, the Reverend
Richard Coles, whose own band The Communards split up, examines how
rock groups through the decades have decided to call it a day. From the
Beatles through to the Verve who've disbanded several times, Richard
trawls the BBC archives to find examples of rock split-ups and to ask
whether there can ever be a dignified parting of the ways. He examines
the many reasons that bands split and reveals a myriad of circumstances
underlying these partings of the ways, from artistic differences to
personal animosity, the wish of one singer to go solo or simply the end
of a particular zeitgeist which characterised their sound. He also asks
whether the energy and drive of the music and early days of a band
means that tensions and a sundering is often inevitable.

The programme features a wealth of archive material from bands
through the decades, of all kinds of musical styles from the Rubettes
to The Verve, and from 10cc to The Eagles. There are also new
interviews with the record executive Tony Wadsworth and the artist
manager Jazz Summers, which give the view points of those working
behind the scenes who have to manage and deal with the fall-out when a
band splits up. Extra comment is provided by the rock specialists
Stuart Maconie and Laura Lee Davies.

But the story doesn't just stop when the bands split. The members
may go off and pursue other careers, but often, the creativity which
fuelled them at the beginning still drives them 10 years down the line.
In addition, touring is now where the big money is to be made. So, for
many different reasons, many of the bands we thought we'd never see
again are being coaxed from their separate career paths to reunite and
go on the road once more. The Police regrouped, Take That have had a
new lease of life and the Spice Girls took their children touring the
second time around.

Of course, the reunion doesn't always go well. Perhaps the band is
without the lead singer who gave such a distinctive sound. Sometimes
the artistic differences which sundered the artists in the first place
rear their heads again 10 years later. Maybe the fans have grown up and
moved on. And that means that a reunited band can do the split-up all
over again...

On 6 February, on BBC Radio 4 at 6:30pm, Mitch Benn Is the 37th Beatle, a programme based on his Edinburgh Fringe show. "Declaring himself number 37, Benn spends a cheeky, musical half-hour running through the other characters on his list…"

Then at 9.00pm that night on Channel 5, Alex Polizzi, The Hotel Inspector, takes her expertise and whithering looks to Epstein House, a hotel based in the home based in the Brian's childhood home. Bound to be a little Beatley!

^^^ Trud if you have a smartphone there is an app called 'TuneIn Radio' that lets you access (nearly) every radio station in the world including a wide variety of Beatles station.

That's what I listen to wetsroosa's show on. I also use it for sports broadcasts, but not much else other than that.

The only annoying thing I find about it is, I can't seem to turn the 'if the phone moves, we'll randomly switch stations' function off. It pis*es me off when I'm listening to a great podcast and then I'm suddenly listening to Garth Brooks a-hard-days-night-paul-3

 

 

Surely that ranks as a 'first world problem'?

That's pretty much the definition of a first world problem.

If your phone is an iPhone, you could use iTunes for the podcasts.

Hi

Just to let you know that Radio 4 have made a 2007 edition of 'The Archive Hour' available that deals with John Lennon's legendary 1970 interview with Rolling Stone editor Jann Wenner. It features lengthy excerpts from the original interview recording as well as both Wenner and Yoko Ono's comments. It's a good listen (but then we would say that!) You can listen here, and it's also available for download here. (Make sure you click 'show all episodes&#39a-hard-days-night-george-10 and scroll right down to the bottom! Hope you enjoy it. There are loads more at the Radio 4 on Music page.

While not really Beatles, though it does include references to them, BBC2 is showing Terence Davies' 2008 Of Time and the City - a documentary college about growing up in Liverpool in the 1950s and '60s - tonight at 11.30. It is an interesting look at the city and environment in which The Beatles grew up and developed.

The Gadget Show (Channel 5, Monday 24th February 7pm - 8pm) has a feature on digital cameras with ex-Beatles photographer Paul Beriff and a Beatles tribute band.

Jon pays homage to a piece of retro tech. He meets up with the Beatles’ former photographer Paul Beriff to follow a Beatles tribute band around Liverpool, snapping them using three of the latest digital cameras with old-school styling.

 

You can see some of Paul's Beatles work here.

Oh I saw his photographs at the Beatles Story.

Light Up - BHG28

Harmony - BHG10
  

These are particularly nice, although they don't seemed to have copied very well.
