Beatles DJ Ken Michaels, host of the radio programs "Every Little Thing" and 'Things We Said Today," has expanded the trivia page on his web site www.kenmichaelsradio.com to include a list of one of 9 amazing prizes that fans can win just by playing along.
Right now, fans can win one of the Top 3 music releases for Beatles fans for 2015, Ringo Starr's 18th studio album "Postcards From Paradise," Paul McCartney's latest remasters from his archive series for "Tug Of War" and "Pipes Of Peace," and the recent must-buy for Beatles fans, the "Beatles 1 (CD + DVD.)"

Ken says, "I'm very proud to be giving away these exciting releases of the past year. 'Postcards From Paradise' was another fine album from Ringo showing his blossoming more and more as a songwriter, collaborating with people like Dave Stewart, Todd Rundgren, Joe Walsh, Steve Lukather, Glen Ballard and others. I especially love his songwriting with Van Dyke Parks, and the new songs he's written with Richard Marx, of which 'Not Looking Back' is one of his finest ballads."
Ken also praises the new McCartney remasters. "'Tug Of War' was one of Paul's masterpieces and is given proper treatment here with a remixed version that sounds outstanding. The bonus audio tracks offered on the Special Edition being given away on the trivia page are nice surprises, including demos for 'Ebony And Ivory' and 'Take It Away.' 'Pipes Of Peace' also has some gems on the bonus audio disc, including a new 2015 remix of their colossal hit "Say Say Say" with Michael Jackson which has both singers switching the order of their vocal parts."
To Ken, the big surprise of the year was the release of the "Beatles 1+." Ken said, "It's so long overdue that the Beatles videos were released and they are visually stunning. I love the fact that they made a companion disc for the group's #1 songs, and a separate disc of alternate takes, and songs that didn't make #1, including the great videos for "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love." They also filled in the gaps and made new videos for songs that never had one, for songs like "Eight Days A Week," and "From Me To You."
New trivia questions and games are posted every Monday, and fans have a full week through the following Sunday to enter. Check out his website at www.kenmichaelsradio.com, or you can write to Ken at firstname.lastname@example.org.
