a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 What's the radio show?

 

Saturday with the Beatles with Les Perry. Looks like they stream too.

I finally had a chance to listen to this show, and he played a very charming cover of All My Loving by Annette Funicello. And now he's playing "You Know My Name, Look Up My Number" without my even having to call in and request it, so now I love this show forever. ;->

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

My wife and I got our youngest daughter a box set of Hi-5 DVDs for her birthday tomorrow (she's turning 2) and on the back of the box, the headline says "The Beatles of the pre-school set!" :lol:

"I know you, you know me; one thing I can tell you is you got to be free!"

On an escalator at a tube station earlier, I randomly though of ,"And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make,", and I just thought what an utterly beautiful line it is, and how much it means, and how that's pretty much the last thing we hear from the Beatles, and what a good ending it is. I kind of teared up a bit. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

One time I was playing capture the flag at a park, and someone on the other team said "I've got nothing to hide" and then I said "Except for me and my monkey" and she's like "What the..?"

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

I randomly (randomly to everyone else, anyway) started crying a bit in class the other day when I thought of the thread about George changing over the years. It made me sad to think about it, don't really know why.

I  was listening to a 60s radio station and trying to finish off a Home Ec project folder that is due tomorrow. Every 5 minutes my mam keeps on walking in and asking me if I had finished yet after 10 times of this happening I yelled at her to leave me alone and "Don't Bother Me" started playing....

My mom went to see a choir because my grandma really wanted to see it. The members were al 65+ by the way. They happened to do a Beatles medley too! (Yesterday, Ticket To Ride and I forgot the third song) 

My mom showed me the flyer and it was such a fail. It said ''Paul Mac Cartney'' and it said he did the music and John did the lyrics and then she told me the presenter literally called them the Beat-les. Truly unforgivable *sighs*

LOL, almost sounds like they were using a manual typewriter to do the flier.

I bought a Beatles shirt yesterday (it has a picture of The Beatles on it), and I wore it today while visiting some of my relatives. My four-year-old cousin was there, so I asked her if she knew who the people on my shirt were. She said, "Um... I don't know. The Beatles?" I was very, very surprised. I didn't think she knew who The Beatles were. I said yes.

Then, later, I was playing a game with her, and I was humming a song. Luap (my sister- Luap is not her real name, just what I call her on the forum) was there, too, and she asked me what song I was humming. My little cousin asked, "Is it one of The Beatles' songs?" It was, and I was surprised again. I said yes.

When my mom, Luap, and I were leaving, I said goodbye to my little cousin, and after saying goodbye to me, she waved to my shirt and said, "Bye-bye, Beatles!"

She is absolutely adorable. :)

Went to a birthday part with a five-man band (keyboards added). They played a couple of songs one of which was Twist And Shout. The band didn't know how to start the song so they started it with the verse. The singers don't know how to sing it. They don't know the sequence of the song even failing to remember to sing the "aah" part. I know the Beatles didn't wrote the song but yeah.

Luckily they made up for it by singing a wonderful arrangement of Fly Me to the Moon.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

I was just doing stuff on the internet and then I decided to check my phone and saw I had a missed call and some texts and whatsapp messages from my mom who told me to come to the livingroom NOW. So I got all worried and I ran downstairs, but she just did that because there was a documentary about the Beatles on tv, which was a nice surprise. I hadn't seen it before, but it discussed them all 4 seperately, instead of telling us the story about the band itself. I missed half of it but hey.

My exam number for my state exams in June contain the numbers 64 and 9 (oh yeah :D )

Also for my Home Ec cooking exam I'm at table Number 9

My friend was watching Pointless (a game show on BBC) a couple of days ago and the topic was: Lead Guitarists from Famous Bands.

Naturally George came up alongside The Edge, Slash, Noel Gallagher etc. The aim of the game is to get the lowest possible answer (they ask 100 people the question and the less people got the answer right the better) George got 52 points as in 48 people didn't know who was the lead guitarist in The Beatles *my guitar gently weeps* the worst thing is even Noel Gallagher got 73 points *face palm* There is something wrong with this world.....Plus there was a girl from Liverpool on it who loudly said "WHAT?!?" when only 52 people got George right. I guess George would have been happy to not have been recognised but still...really?

Another Beatles track played at the Air Canada Centre last night, another Maple Leafs victory at said arena last night! Woohoo!

My favourite hockey team simply can't lose whenever a snippet of "Birthday" or "Helter Skelter" or "I Saw Her Standing There" or some other Beatles rocker is played over the PA in that arena. BEATLES = WIN

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

There was a round of Pointless a long while (its not a show i watch often) with the subject being classic albums and something like 72 people knew Pepper was a Beatles album. Its one of the biggest most important albums in music history and 28 people didnt know who it was by (or even worse it didnt exist). That bugged me. The other one i remember was a semi-final round of 'Beatles songs with 3 words in the title which made the UK Top 40 singles charts'.

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

Incidentally, this reminds me: Many of you newbies who only became forum members after 2011 (or whenever) may occasionally browse old threads and see posts that end with a #9 or 17, for no apparent reason, and wonder "wtf is that about?" Well, back then, to submit a reply we had to correctly answer a randomly-generated arithmetic problem consisting of two single-digit numbers which we would add together. And a sum of (Number) 9 or (She was just...) 17 was considered noteworthy enough for us to announce it. So now you know!

It's my sister's 18th today and I wrote the lyrics to 'Birthday' inside the card I made her. Just to remind her that I love her, but I'll never love anyone more than those guys (sounds a bit mean now I type it out).

Then she was talking about having a baby next year (joking, I hope) and I said that I'll plan to have mine (if I have) so that it's born  on the 09/09/09. My mom laughed, my dad just thought that was a bit weird, sister didn't get it - she never gets the conversation if we're talking about something music-related.
