|Beatles DJ Ken Michaels interviews Mark Lewisohn again|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Monday, 12/02/13 2:06 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Back in June 2013, syndicated Beatles radio host Ken Michaels interviewed Beatles author and historian Mark Lewisohn as a teaser for his upcoming first volume of three of his Beatles biography "All These Years," and it generated a fantastic response on his website. "It was one of my busiest months ever, and many fans wrote in saying how much they enjoyed our conversation."
In November, Ken interviewed Mark again upon the release of the book, and spent an hour talking Beatles. Ken says "First of all, the book is nothing short of wonderful. There are so many revelations, and stories told fully and truthfully for the first time, it is like learning Beatles history all over again with a fresh start."

The new interview has Mark telling the story of how the Beatles got their record contract with EMI, what Ken describes as "the biggest bombshell" in the book. Also, Mark says how a young John Lennon having to choose between living with his mother or father was a myth that has grown in legend over the years. There's more on what were the earliest songs that John and Paul wrote together and separately, and how the Beatles were on the verge of breaking up towards the end of 1961.
Ken adds. "Mark is just a fantastic person to interview. He is a wealth of knowledge, and always sheds insight on so many parts of the Beatles story." The interview can now be found on Ken's website on his "More Interviews" page.
Ken's weekly Beatles program "Every Little Thing" is heard on 20 radio stations as a prerecorded syndicated show, and live Wednesdays 8-10pm (EST) on WNHU, West Haven, CT at www.wnhu.net. His other show "Things We Said Today," a Beatles news-themed show with Beatles Examiner's Steve Marinucci, is heard on www.podbean.com, iTunes, and on www.fab4radio.com, which also carries the syndicated "Every Little Thing."
Ken's website is also running a special contest to win a signed Julian Lennon lithograph for his new album "Everything Changes" with a contest running through Dec. 6. Just go to www.kenmichaelsradio.com.
