|Weekly Beatles radio show to rebroadcast Tony Sheridan interview|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Monday, 02/25/13 7:36 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
This Wednesday, Feb. 27, as a tribute to Tony Sheridan, veteran Beatles DJ Ken Michaels will present his interview with Sheridan on the live broadcast of his weekly live and syndicated Beatles radio program "Every Little Thing." The interview took place in November 1992 at a Beatles Getaway weekend at Pines Hotel, Catskills, NY. Sheridan along with Billy J. Kramer were guest speakers and performers that weekend, hosed and organized by Charles Rosenay.
Ken said, "Looking back on this interview all these years later, I'm very proud of the topics we discussed, especially specific songs he recorded with the Beatles. My favorite of those songs is the ballad 'Why' in which he corrected me that he wasn't the co-writer of the song as it's been written on various packages of the recordings he made with the Beatles, he was THE writer. I've always loved that song, which has a true 50's feel to it."
Ken also talked with Tony about "Nobody's Child," and "Take Out Some Insurance On Me Baby," the importance of the British TV "Oh Boy" which gave him national exposure, and what it was like meeting the Beatles for the first time, working with Bert Kaempfert as a producer, and that he was offered to be a permanent member of the group. In a very revealing moment, he admits that he couldn't have handled the level of fame that the Beatles achieved.
The interview will be broadcast on 88.7 WNHU, West Haven, CT, 8-10pm (est,) which can be streamed at www.wnhu.net. Most of the interview will be posted shortly after this broadcast on Ken's own website, www.kenmichaelsradio.com.
This March, Ken will mark his 31st Anniversary since starting his weekly Beatles radio programs, which have been heard on many commercial stations, plus satellite radio (XM,) internet, public and college radio stations. Ken's website features interviews with people connected to the Beatles, including Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison, Todd Rundgren, Billy J. Kramer, Pete Best, Peter & Gordon, and others, along with weekly Beatles trivia in which you can win the latest Beatles/solo CDs, DVDs, books, and more.
