Breakfast With The Beatles in April

Thanks to everyone who made a donation to WUMB on behalf of our Breakfast With The Beatles show. This was the very first time we participated in the WUMB’s Spring Fundraiser and we are grateful for such a huge response from you! We thank you!

Now we are into the month of April and things are beginning to heat up.

Breakfast With The Beatles will not only continue to bring you some of the greatest and rarest Beatles & solo Beatles music, we will also be spotlighting memorable Beatle dates in history.

  • On April 4th 1964, The Beatles occupied the top five slots in the Billboard Hot 100. We’ll look back at that historic and unprecedented event and we’ll play those songs.
  • April 8th 1963, Julian Lennon is born. We’ll honor Julian by playing a selected tracks from his catalogue and we’ll recall the time Cha-Chi interviewed Julian at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston.
  • On April 10th, The Beatles Second Album was released in the states. The album was only 22 minutes long with just 11 songs. We’ll look back at this record that personifies “The Beatles, the world’s greatest rock’n’roll band,” according to author Dave Marsh who wrote a book on this one Beatles album.
  • It was the request that made Brian Epstein want to find out just who is this band called The Beatles. “My Bonnie” was the record asked about at Epstein’s NEMS record store in Liverpool by a customer named Raymond Jones. We’ll look back at that historic moment and we’ll play the song that changed the world, released on April 23, 1962 in the US on Decca Records by Tony Sheridan and The Beat Brothers, aka The Beatles.
  • We’ll look back at Paul McCartney’s Tug Of War album released on April 26th 1982, featuring the song “Here Today,” Paul’s tribute to John Lennon.
  • It was April 28th 1965 when Peter Sellers arrived on the set of the film Help to present The Beatles with a Grammy Award for Best Vocal Performance By A Group for “A Hard Day’s Night.” Peter called it a Grandma Award. We’ll play actual audio from that moment.
  • We’ll look back at the Ram album, released on April 27th in the UK. We’ll play tracks from a rare copy of Ram on mono vinyl and we’ll look back, listen and discuss some tracks from this Paul McCartney solo album.

It’s going to be a great month, join us every Saturday morning from 6am-8am!

As John Lennon said, “C’mon It’s Such A Joy”!
