A Year With The Beatles

Episode 1 - Please Please Me

April 3, 2016

In the first month of our year with the Beatles, Graeme Burk and Rob Jones are joined by Bill Evenson to discuss The Beatles debut album Please Please Me. There's a discussion of the Beatles in their earliest form, a conversation about favourite songs and deep cuts and we tackle the question of whether the Beatles' genius can be seen in nascent form even at this point.

For extra-credit homework, Graeme, Rob and Bill listen to the Beatles' first single as sidemen for Tony Sheridan's "My Bonnie" for the German market.
