Tonight on Things We Said Today: Talking About the Beatles’ Star-Club Tapes

things we said today bannerIt’s Tuesday, and once again it’s time for the weekly Beatles roundtable, Things We Said Today, during which our panel of experts tackles topics of importance to Beatles fans. This week, Ken Michaels, Steve Marinucci, and Allan Kozinn look at the famous (or perhaps infamous) Star-Club tapes. The show begins tonight at 9 pm on Pure Pop Radio.

Despite questionable sound quality, the various releases of the Star-Club tapes, such as Live! at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962 have presented the Beatles on stage, perfecting their act one song at a time, each song performed with guts and gusto, one after the other, during marathon, energized shows that were guaranteed to blow the roof off the joint.

Ken, Steve and Allan talk about the first time they heard these recordings, which initially surfaced on record in 1977. It’s another fascinating, fact-filled discussion that you won’t hear anywhere else. You won’t want to miss this show.

Things We Said Today is the premiere weekly survey of all things Beatles that is hosted by a quartet of Beatles experts–today’s Fab Four, if you will. Ken Michaels, host of Every Little Thing, is joined by Beatlefan Executive Editor Al Sussman, Steve Marinucci (Beatles Examiner), and Allan Kozinn, longtime music critic. Other well-known Beatles experts sometimes sit in with the core group. Things We Said Today airs every Tuesday night at 9 pm ET on Pure Pop Radio.
