Excitement and wanting to turn it up. I listen to music on radio so infrequently however that doesn't have very often. There is definitely more joy in hearing the song there as its totally unexpected.
Occasionally i feel very annoyed as the DJ either talks over the end or just turns it off, as what happened with Hey Jude – its a seven minute song, play the full thing or something else for goodness sake.

I normally listen to 60's on 6 on Sirius XM; however, I have listened to them on the local classic rock stations. The Beatles are one of the few 60s bands classic rock bands played. Most of the time the song selection is very limited again Hey Jude or Come Together, but every once in a while I may hear Glass Onion, Magical Mystery Tour, or Sgt Pepper.

The other day I was listening to my local classic rock station and they said they were gonna play one of the most well known songs from Abbey Road. I was expecting Come Together, Something or Here Comes The Sun.
It was none other than my favourite song ever, You Never Give Me Your Money!

Wow, I have never heard "She Said" on any radio station! (Probably not "Fixing A Hole" either but hearing that one wouldn't thrill me as much.)
One time, way back in the mid-1990s (likely right about the time "Anthology" was released) the local oldies station announced that they'd be launching a Beatles Weekend, playing EVERY BEATLES SONG in alphabetical order!! I was excited and planned to listen in frequently, thinking about the absolute craziness of hearing "Revolution 9" and "Dig it" and all that previously-unheard-on-radio craziness that the radio station promised they were going to play…
Somehow "Every single Beatles song, in alphabetical order" meant "…as long as it was a hit, and fairly tuneful, and not too peculiar for our listeners, or too long, or too short, or we feel like overlooking it." I wound up listening from time to time throughout the weekend, mentally taking note of the songs that weren't played. Irritating!
(Of course, I'd have been much more disappointed if it had happened a dozen years previous – I'd have had my radio/cassette player all prepared to record THE ENTIRE WEEKEND-LONG BROADCAST)

From what I heard (and remember), I'd guesstimate that they played about 60% of the catalog.
Which is still a fair amount of music. Ordinarily, no more than, what, 15% of their stuff will be played on an AM radio oldies station? At most? Sure, why not. And I can certainly understand ignoring the more extreme parts of the White Album. But goddamnit, if you're gonna announce that you're playing EVERY SINGLE BEATLES song during a weekend…DO IT!
For chrissakes, all those albums & singles together only take about 11 or 13 hours to play! There's 48 hours in a weekend! I mean!

Lately, my dad and I were in the car when "Eight Days A Week" and he suggested that I sing it to my girlfriend. Lately he's been nagging me about it. I told him, "Don't take a happy song and make it worse!"
