Overall, I’ve really enjoyed the station. It’s nice to be able to listen to the Beatles on the radio instead of littering my car with a bunch of CD’s! The only thing I don’t necessarily enjoy are the covers, as most of them I just don’t really care for.

Some of them are unbearable. Some lady with the whiniest voice I’ve ever heard sings Across The Universe over a crunchy guitar. There are good covers, but they don’t seem to play any of them. The only good one I’ve heard is Joe Cocker’s version of With A Little Help From My Friends.

I agree. I’ve heard more bad covers than good ones. Was it the Fiona Apple version of Across The Universe ? I actually rather enjoyed that one!

I’m not sure who sang it. I changed the station pretty quickly.

I’m just super curious if you’re both referring to the same cover.

That’s not it. I didn’t mind that one. Fiona Apple has a pretty nice voice, and the guitar sounds like the real song.

I can’t remember for the life of me what the band was called. If you’re looking for covers, its played on electric guitar and the singer is terrible. If you’re a Beatles fan and like it, it probably isn’t what you’re looking for.

Magica Mini Concert is awesome. Its a collection of live bits. I just heard a live Ticket To Ride go straight into The Dirty Mac’s Yer Blues . Awesome.

Wow, cool thing! I wish I could have experienced it firsthand. Hopefully, it was not just a glitch but had a message… maybe they wanted to celebrate @SgtPeppersBulldog’s new gifs in the signature.ahdn_george_06

And I sincerely hope that the caption under the picture in the article Ahhh Girl posted has only confused left and right and nothing else…

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I listen to this station often!  I was so excited when I heard they were going to add it, It took long enough.  I took a break from listening to The Beatles because I was starting to listen to other bands but this station made me want to listen to them again!  I have Rubber Soul on repeat.
