I cannot find a legit Y show, even after combing through my TV encyclopedia.  How about the long lost TV special:

Yoko Ono Presents:  John Lennon And His Beatles.  This is now rarer than Rock And Roll Circus used to be.  So rare you would think it doesn't exist!

Ok, now you can put in any old BS for Z so we can start a new category.  If nobody does that, the A to Z game will retire.

Did I make this category focus too much on 60s teen shows more so than the Beatles themselves?

Nope, the round was good. Someone can pull a Z out of their sleeve.

Is it fair to say that we are not going to find a Z show that features the Beatles pre-breakup? So let's go for something else to revive this game.

How about?

Beatles Song Parodies (Song that parody specific Beatles songs or the Beatles style)

Another Day - The Rutles (Parody of Martha, My Dear)

Cheese And Onions - The Rutles

Sounded so authentic that somebody put it on a Beatles bootleg.  Either that or they were trying to fool a gullible buyer.

F - Fool On The Pill - Rutles

Mentioned on the mock Tragical History Tour LP cover on original American Rutles LP.  Since nobody came up with another F, I am going with this title read but not heard.

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

K - Knicker Elastic King, The - The Rutles

 

From the Archeology album.  If stuck, I guess going through the Rutles catalog is a good idea.

Feel guilty hogging this.  But nobody else is responding.

L - Letter B - The Beetles(?)

 

More from that Beatle-like Muppet band seen on Sesame Street.  Our local Breakfast With The Beatles radio show plays this song every once in a while.

You are all my friends.

After one week, it's safe to say there are no Q songs in this category.  Otherwise, someone would have posted it by now.

So I think I will skip Q and go on to R.  If you come up with a Q later, feel free to stick it in.

R - Ringo For President - The Young World Singers

Surprisingly hard to find an S song for this category.  Back to the Archaeology album we go.

 

S - Shangri-La - The Rutles
