5:00 p.m.    The Beatles: The Transformative Years   NEW!

This is the most amazing period in The Beatles’ musical journey. Beginning with Rubber Soul and Revolver, they seemed to just explode into a level of creativity that had never happened before, and has yet to be equalled by any band.

Another fine live entry by the ultimate jam band. 

We’ve got a lot of listeners, but not a lot from the U.S. by comparison. What’s with that, people? No time for music?

Beatles Rock the Rooftop

6:00 p.m.   The Beatles Rock the Rooftop!

The Beatles final public performance happened on January 30, 1969 with an unannounced concert from the rooftop of Apple Corporation headquarters at 3 Saville Row. Their fans were ecstatic with the lunchtime entertainment. The British Bobbies? Not so much.

We’re taking a break from Europe ’72 this week and airing a concert from Watkins Glen, New York. No two Dead performances are ever the same. They are the ultimate jam band.
