STILL MAKING HISTORY!!!
Sir Paul McCartney will kick off the US leg of his "Out There" tour at Lubbock, Texas on June 14th. Jorie Gracen of the Macca Report confirms Paul has chosen the town where Buddy Holly grew up to kick off
the American leg. Jorie joins us on the show this weekend! The tour starts this Saturday in Montevideo, to be followed by shows in Japan and Korea. Click the pic for the latest from Macca's website.
At long last, Brian Epstein has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And as usual, the event didn't happen without controversy, with former Rolling Stones producer/promoter Andrew Loog Oldham opting out
of the ceremony because he objected to being inducted alongside Brian by Peter Asher.
As part of the copyright/public domain controversy, there are a number of "new" re-releases of the Hamburg Club tapes. A CD from the Oxtango label is getting heavy buzz because of the drastically improved sound quality from previous
releases. We recently had Happy Nat of The Beatles Rarity on the show, and you can check out his interview with Jonathan Meine of Oxtango by clicking the photo.
