|New podcast features Beatles experts|

"Fab Fourum", a new and different Beatles show, has just been launched! It is a half-hour all talk show about the Beatles hosted by four friends - radio veterans, authors, and lecturers - who share a love for, and have each done substantial research and reporting on, the world's most famous rock band.
The hosts include Mitch Axelrod (author of "Beatletoons," the only book covering the history of the Beatles cartoon series that ran in America from 1965 to 1969,) Rob Leonard (host of WHPC's "Beatlesongs" for over 17 years,) Ken Michaels (host of several Beatles shows on WNYT, WDHA-FM, WBZO-FM and XM Radio,) and Tony Traguardo (music lecturer and journalist, host of WCWP's "BeatleTrax" and "4F" on Podarama.com and iTunes).
In each "Fab Fourum" the hosts will discuss topics that cover all aspects of the Beatles' history, including the Beatles' group and solo works, significant events in their lives, and recent relevant news stories. Future programs will feature unique and interesting guest panelists and interviews. In the course of their first few shows the Fourum cover such topics as: Paul McCartney's recent mini-tour of the U.S., the George Harrison compilation "Let It Roll," the 40th Anniversary of the Beatles' "Abbey Road" album, and the newly remastered Beatles' catalogue.
The conversations are healthy debates on the most important musical group of all time, and each host brings his own unique perspective to the table. "Fab Fourum" can be found on iTunes, or by tuning in to the streaming podcast (that you also download) at www.podarama.com/fab_fourum (careful, that's got an underscore in it.)
