Hello Beatle People!
Greetings from Glenn Kalina and Richie V, your hosts of "The Beatles, From Us To You," heard every Sunday morning from 9 to 11am on 100.1 WJRZ.
We'll get your toes a tappin' every week, as you get your BEATLE ON with the great sounds of John, Paul, George and Ringo. In just 7 years from 1963 to 1970, the boys released 12 studio albums and 22 singles, and we'll be playing them all Sunday mornings!
You'll hear all your favorites from the Fab Four, as well as some forgotten tracks you may never have heard before. And don't forget over 40 years of solo recordings. That means more top ten's hits and more number ones from those four lads from Liverpool, and you'll hear it ALL, including live performances, plenty of interviews, special guests, sound bites, information about the music, as well as tidbits about the lives of all four. Plus weekly features and lots of fun for the ears.
It happens every Sunday morning from 9 to 11am on 100.1 WJRZ and you can also stream it live right here at WJRZ.com or on iHeart Radio!
Peace & love!
Beatle Glenn and Beatle Richie
4/20/14: See you in Beatle land this Sunday, as we remember the music of the "James Paul McCartney" TV Special, broadcast this week in 1973. Produced by ATV and starring Paul McCartney and Wings, it was first broadcast on April 16, 1973 in the United States on the ABC network, and was later broadcast in the United Kingdom on May 10, 1973. The special was broken up into eleven different segments, each of these showcasing McCartney's songs from both his career with The Beatles and as a solo artist. Paul covers some Beatles songs, "Yesterday," "Long Tall Sally," "Michelle" and "Blackbird." He also performs solo and Wings songs, "Big Barn Bed," "Heart of the Country," "My Love," "The Mess," "Maybe I'm Amazed" and some others. Paul also performs "Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance," a song he wrote for Twiggy in 1968.
4/13/14: See you in Beatle land this Sunday, as we remember the "McCartney" LP. McCartney is the first solo album by Paul McCartney recorded during a period of depression and confusion for Paul, shortly after the breakup of The Beatles. Released on Apple Records in April 1970 after Paul had resisted attempts by the other Beatles to have the release delayed to allow for Apple's previously scheduled title, The Beatles Let It Be album. Apart from wife Linda's vocal contributions, McCartney performed the entire album by himself, playing every instrument. The recordings for the McCartney LP were made on a four-track tape recorder, without a mixing desk and VU meters as a guide for recording levels. Paul says, "I was like a professor in his laboratory. Very simple setup, as basic as you can get. Even now that album has an interesting sound. Very analogue, very direct." The album received an unfavorable response from the majority of music critics, but held the number 1 position for three weeks on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and peaked at number 2 in Britain.
