|Beatles-A-Rama!!! making the internet Fab for seven years|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Saturday, 09/20/08 2:15 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
The Beatles internet radio station Beatles-A-Rama!!! turned seven years old in September!
Pat Matthews, who runs Beatles-A-Rama!!! started in Radio in 1970. He produced a 12 Hour Beatles Special entitled The Beatles Forever in collaboration with author Nicholas Schaffner, and he also produced an impromptu special on John Lennon the morning after his death in 1980. Having a tremendous record/CD collection of Beatles music, bootlegs, interviews, etc. he decided in 2001, September 11, to launch Beatles-A-Rama!!! on the internet.
Weekday mornings are highlighted by The Early Beatles @8, one hour of pure Beatles from the early days, 1961-1966. Friday afternoons, just for the TGIF of it, there's The Later Years program at 4PM Pacific, featuring the great studio work of The Lads from 1967 and beyond.

Sunday mornings at 9AM on Beatles-A-Rama you can hear "Just Four Guys" with host Ray Whitaker. Ray is an excellent writer and host. His show has a central theme each week, such as "The Beatles Girl Songs" "Paul on Bass", etc. That's followed by Pat's own two-hour "Beatles-A-Rama!!! The Show!" at 10 AM. Each week an episode is aired from the 80 shows about the Beatles that he's produced.
Beatles-A-Rama!!! streams 24/7 on Windows Media and Shoutcast. Beatles-A-Rama!!! averages 15,000-20,000 listeners per day, Monday-Friday, with around 10,000-12,000 on the weekends. They have roughly 3,000 members on their community boards on the website www.beatlesarama.com.
Beatles-A-Rama!!! doesn't just playing Beatles and their solo works exclusively. They have hundreds of interviews, unreleased tracks from over the years, British Invasion songs and a whole lot more. Give them a try!
