Beatles DJ marks end of 2016 with special Beatles contest
Beatles DJ Ken Michaels, host of the syndicated Beatles radio program "Every Little Thing," and co-host of the talk-show Beatles podcast "Things We Said Today," is featuring a big Special Contest on his website www.kenmichaelsradio.com highlighting many of the major releases for Beatles fans for 2016.
Beginning this Thursday, Dec. 29, the contest will offer 5 prizes all in one package. Ken said, "It's really a great way to sum up the biggest releases of the past year, all the major ones, plus a recent fun book to read on the Fabs as well."
This Special Contest will include:
"The Beatles 1" (CD & DVD) - "An absolute must buy for every Beatles fan, since it contains all the videos for their #1 songs, plus videos for B-sides, alternate videos, and songs from the 90's on up, like "Free As A Bird," "Real Love," and the video for the BBC recording of "Words Of Love."
"Eight Days A Week" BluRay Deluxe - "The highly anticipated film covering the Beatles touring years with new interviews from Paul & Ringo, plus a bonus disc with 100 minutes of material, including 5 live performances.
"The Beatles Live At The Hollywood Bowl" CD - a reissue of the 1977 album long out of print until now, with 4 bonus tracks, remixed by Giles Martin. "Much better sound quality than the original with the screaming brought down a bit, but still capturing the excitement of the Beatles as a live act."
"Pure McCartney" Double-CD compilation - "Spanning Paul's entire post-Beatles career, this collection is a good mix between some of his hits, and going deeper into album cuts. Will there ever be a definitive McCartney compilation with such a massive catalogue-who knows? But 'Pure McCartney' is a good choice for a new fan wanting a broad selection of songs that stretch 5 decades."
"Songs We Were Singing: Guided Tours Through The Beatles' Lesser-Known Tracks" by Kit O'Toole. "This book offers a fresh perspective on the Beatles' songs that were not the hits-the album tracks that warrant as much attention. Plus there are chapters on select overlooked solo-Beatles albums, a list of some of Ringo's best drumming on Beatles records, and overlooked John Lennon songs from his solo-career.
Ken's website also offers Beatles trivia with a choice of one of 9 great prizes to win every single week, plus interviews with major names and authors connected to the Beatles, including Ringo Starr, Denny Laine, Peter Asher, Laurence Juber, Billy J. Kramer, Mark Lewisohn, Glen Burtnik and Bob Burger of the Weeklings, and more.
