WUMB August Program Guide

Introducing Cha-Chi’s Breakfast With The Beatles!

This month Breakfast With The Beatles will revisit the very first time The Beatles performed on The Ed Sullivan Show over 50 years ago on February 9th 1964. On February 10th we’ll hear the 5 songs The Beatles performed live to a TV audience of 73 million people. We’ll also listen to news clips and actualities surrounding the first time The Beatles arrived in New York City including excerpts from The Beatles very first U.S. press conference.

On Feb 17th in 1969, The Beatles continued the Sgt. Pepper sessions by working on “Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite.” Breakfast With The Beatles goes back to those days by playing recollections of Sgt. Pepper by Beatles Road Manager Mal Evans and Beatles Producer George Martin. We’ll play tracks from original Sgt. Pepper vinyl, the Pepper re-issue fifty years later as well as rarely heard alternate versions and much more.

And on Feb 24th we celebrate George Harrison’s birthday! Born on this day in 1943, George was the youngest Beatle, born to Louise, a Liverpool shop girl, and Harold Harrison, a bus conductor.
Listen for lots of songs including rarities from George’s catalogue both as a Beatle and a solo artist, plus some words from George as well. George is ChaChi’s favorite Beatle, so you’re sure to hear things you have never heard before.

All this, plus each week we’ll have “Beatle Briefs” from Scott Segelbaum who travels the world with Ringo, and tracks from the Beatles both as a group and as solo artists.

I am very excited to bring my long-running program, Breakfast With The Beatles, to the listeners of WUMB. Each week you and I will honor the band that has broken barriers, bridged generation gaps and for over 50 years continues to bring us distinct joy through their music.

As the year goes by we’ll feature many guests on our show. Ringo has been on seven times! We’ll listen to rarely heard audio actualities as well as outtakes, and you will be invited to many Beatle events where like-minded Beatle fans gather to celebrate the Fab Four. One of our most of our most popular events is “Beatles Night at The Mendon Twin Drive-In.” Stay tuned for info on this year’s drive-in night.
