  • It Was 50 Years Ago Today

    that 'Love Me Do' was released in the UK

    And the rest, as they say, is history....

    I think I'll listen to The Fabs all day as I drive around Liverpool in my small car, delivering and collecting dental lab work. And then home to yet more Beatles and strong cider

    (And then do some more work on my latest tune )

            It was 49 years ago about now that JFK was still alive, I heard "Please Please Me"six or seven times on the radio..... it bombed on the charts, including here locally... I didn't think much of the song... there was a tiny news article in the paper, describing the Beatles effect a world away and the article seemed silly.. the small pic of the band seemed... sillier. What a difference the next 14 weeks would create.

            It was 47 years ago that I discovered groupies. I personally thank the Beatles for that, even though the didn't invent it.

            It was 40 years ago today (give or take), that I bought a second Teac 3340 so that I could ping-pong tracks between machines to get more tracks.

            It was 31 years ago about now that I bought my first digital mixdown machine... a Technics sh100 14 bit convertor connected to a vcr. I was ecstatic for the next six or seven years.

            It was 17 years ago (give or take), that I got to talk to Craig Anderton on the phone for a few seconds and he enthusiastically told me that he "had to hang up now".

            This has been a most wonderful time in history to live.

                  Was that when the explosion happened? Or was it the saucer landing in the front yard? I don't remember. In any event, it...

                    I can't believe no one mentioned an event of extreme importance: on this day (October 6) in 105 BC, at the battle of Arausio the Cimbri inflicted a huge defeat to the Roman army of Gnaeus Mallius Maximus.

                    On a more "SSS" kinda note, in 1927 the first movie with a soundtrack debuted: "The Jazz Singer."

                      It was about 9 months after that song was released when I was born, I wonder if the Beatles are responsible. Me Do.
