Again I remind you this was originally broadcast in 2010, that's why the Math is off.
Moving on to John Lennon in our remembrance of the lives of two men who were a part of something that probably will never happen again, the phenomenon that was the Beatles.
Dec. 8th is the anniversary of John's death.
I'll cherry pick some more from those delightful 1963 BBC Sessions, highlighting John, from Pop Go The Beatles.
There is a real fun moment in here regarding George Martin's non-appearance on the show, and the Beatles need for the piano part Martin played on A Hard Day's Night.
I'll take you back for some more Roots Rock too.
Then some dialogue simply between a father and a son, but with a cute surprise in its content.
I'll end with a seasonal song, but more intimate with just John and Yoko- not the version with the children's chorus you are used to hearing.
What can I say? I miss those two guys and wish they were still around.
But when you think about it, it's all perspective.
Including their solo careers, they left us with a vast library of great music.
So, are the Beatles now half empty or half full?
And given the joy they provided in my life and so many others lives, does it even matter?

Mike! You're So Welcome for the kind words! WOW! It's Great that you have been doing a free-form Rock Radio show for over 16 years now, and also put them out as Podcasts!! You have the "Voice" for it! Yes, I did listen to both parts! I see how you take a different approach on how you present your Segments/Rockollections! I Enjoyed it! I'll have to check out some of your other shows.

I just listened to ROCKOLLECTIONS: HOME FOR THANKSGIVING 2014 PT.1 The end of Strawberry Fields and about John saying Cranberry Sauce instead of I Buried Paul! I didn't know that! It always sounded like I Buried Paul to me! ;-) I liked how you explained about the other songs you chose to include in the theme about Going Home for Thanksgiving! And then the Beatles "When I Get Home" was a Great Choice to include!! I Love that song!! I Really Enjoyed it!! Thanks!! :-)

So, even though you don't Always play The Beatles the FABS Do pop up a lot! LOL! You're Welcome for writing and listening! And Yes, I thought it was Great!! Have a FAB Day!
Bob  :-)

Thank you so much for the kind words.
Yes, I've been doing a free-form Rock Radio show for over 16 years, and also put them out as Podcasts.
I try to take a different approach to our music.
Did you listen to both parts, and also the Songs The Beatles Gave Away?
I don't ALWAYS play the Beatles, lol!
But if you follow that Podomatic link, you'll see other shows.
Like Home For Thanksgiving, where I didn't realize until I heard it played back that in Part 1 I had both opened and closed with the Beatles, lol!
So the Fab Four do pop up a lot!
Thanks for writing and listening, very happy you thought it was GREAT!!!
