We do have a month of great music to bring to you on Breakfast With The Beatles. Here is a breakdown of this month’s shows,

June 2: Fifty-one years ago on June 1st 1967, the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album took the world by storm. The album that defined the “Summer of Love” took 400 hours to record over a 129-day period, unprecedented at the time. Breakfast With The Beatles will pay tribute to this groundbreaking release by tracking the entire album during our show, as well as sharing interesting stories behind the songs and behind the entire production.

June 9: During the month of June in 1973 you could find not only the Beatles’ Red and Blue double album compilation on the music charts, but you would also find albums by George Harrison (Living In The Material World), Paul McCartney (Red Rose Speedway), and the James Bond movie theme song, “Live and Let Die” by Paul McCartney. We’ll go deep on all of these releases on Breakfast With The Beatles.

June 16: Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942 in Liverpool’s Walton Hospital. On this special Beatle Birthday broadcast of Breakfast With The Beatles, we’ll feature lots of extra music by Paul from his earliest compositions to his latest release, some never heard before. Plus, we’ll hear unique audio clips from Paul’s celebrated career.

June 23: After years of sitting on a shelf in the Capitol Records vault, The Beatles At The Hollywood Bowl was released in 1977 and hit the #1 & #2 slots on the UK and US charts respectively. We’ll listen to the remastered tracks from those two Hollywood Bowl concerts and we’ll play selections from the original vinyl release.

June 30: Who is Jimmy Nicol? Nicol was the 24-year-old session man that was thrust from obscurity into the Beatle limelight as a replacement for Ringo Starr during part of the 1964 Beatles Australian Tour. Ringo was hospitalized due to tonsillitis and pharyngitis. Nicol was said to believe that he would replace Ringo as a Beatle because of his drumming capabilities. It didn’t quite turn out that way, we’ll tell the story on this episode of Breakfast With The Beatles.

Remember, you can always communicate with the show, questions…comments…requests,
