Tonight on Things We Said Today: Author Dave Schwensen Talks About the Beatles at Shea Stadium

the-beatles-things-we-said-todayTonight’s very special edition of the weekly Beatles roundtable, Things We Said Today, travels back in time to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first concert at New York’s Shea Stadium. On August 15, 1965, the Beatles descended on the home of the New York Mets to play for just over 55,000 of the group’s most devoted fans…and never looked back.

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.
