If it’s Rock/Music History I’ve got a file on it somewhere. Most on computer, but I still peruse the vast accumulation of written notes and ideas from nearly forty years of trying to come up with something to talk about on the radio that relates to both the format and target demographic, or some such consultant bullshit. Anyway, here are some I though notable for this date, 27 November 2018, enjoy & thanks for listening!
In 1967, The Beatles released “Magical Mystery Tour“, featuring the title track, “The Fool On The Hill“, “I Am The Walrus“, “Strawberry Fields Forever“, “Hello, Goodbye“, “Penny Lane“, “Baby You’re A Rich Man“ and “All You Need Is Love“. Some of my favorites, and arguably some of the best damn tunes ever written.
In 1974, Carl Douglas’ classic jam “Kung Fu Fighting“ went Gold. Not one of the best damn tunes ever written, no argument.
In 1989, Paul McCartney suggested the three surviving Beatles might reunite, but George Harrison shot down that idea, saying, quote, “There won’t be a Beatles reunion as long as John Lennon remains dead.” Of course in 1995, The Beatles’ “Anthology (One)” album set a first-week sales record, selling 1.2 Million copies in the U.S.
