Beatles radio show features songs that inspired the Beatles
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Tuesday, 02/28/12 5:50 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

In celebration of Paul McCartney's new album of standards "Kisses On The Bottom," this Wednesday night's live broadcast of Ken Michaels' Beatles show "Every Little Thing" will include a thematic hour of music primarily from the pre-rock era, including music from Ringo Starr's first album "Sentimental Journey" and other songs from the Beatles group and solo-catalogue that harken back to this golden era of music.

Legendary songwriters like Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael and others have been covered by the Beatles, especially in their solo-careers, and their arrangements of their songs will be heard during the hour.

In particular, Ken is especially proud to be playing songs from Ringo's first solo-album, "Sentimental Journey." "Ever since I've been doing Beatles radio programs in 1982, I've always said that Ringo doesn't get the credit he deserves for recording an album of standards before other rockers did so. With the later successes of Linda Ronstadt, Rod Stewart, and now Paul, people should give credit for Ringo for doing this first."

In the broadcast, Ken will also be giving away copies of the latest CDs from Paul, Ringo and Roberta Flack's new album of Beatles covers.

The live broadcast of "Every Little Thing" airs on 88.7 WNHU, West Haven, CT, Wednesdays 8-10pm (est) and can be streamed at www.wnhu.net. In addition, a syndicated one-hour version of the show runs on 14 other stations in the U.S. To see a list of station affiliates, and to learn more about Ken and his 30-year history of work on the Beatles, please go to www.kenmichaelsradio.com.
