I thought it was on from 9:00 to noon?

I have Dish Network so I have dvr'd the show from 6:00 to 9:00(West Coast times).

It's pretty good. It should make for a nice addition once satellite gets a Beatles channel.

For those that are confused on when it exactly starts:

Sundays 9 AM - Noon (EST) [East Coast]
Sundays 6 AM - 9 AM (PST) [West Coast]

Repeats on Sundays at 12 AM - 3 AM (EST) [East Coast]
Repeats on Sundays at 9 PM - 12 AM (PST) [West Coast]

It's a great program. ***** :)

Love it! But then, I'm a huge Beatles mark.... Got all of the albums, etc. I listen almost every Sunday. I've heard some very cool non-Beatles songs on the show too, written and/or produced by a Beatle.

I listen as well. I used to listen when this was on regular radio when I lived in Seattle.

I'm glad it's on Sirius now.

I'll be getting some of them tomorrow.

Stereo or Mono? After you've had a chance to listen to them, let us know if you can tell a difference in sound quality over the CD's that were released years ago.


I found this fact very interesting...
The Beatles, with 28 million albums sold since 2000, may overtake Eminem's 32 million to become the decade's best-selling artist. That race ends Dec. 31.

Go Beatles!
:clap:

I have both.

I always found listening to the Sgt. Pepper and White Album in mono to be a disorienting experience. I prefer the stereo because I am much more used to them and I find them to be more restrained and less gimmicky. The mono mixes were the ones that the Beatles were mainly interested in being part of the process, so you get more flanging and buzzing sound effects and the like. Most of which can sound a bit more dated.

The stereo mixes were the ones that George Martin and Geoff Emerick molded into shape without too much interference by the fabs....thus, a bit more restrained and not as much dipping into the sound bag of tricks.

The new stereo mixes sound terrific. The guitar leads, especially on Revolver fly on a high electrical charge. The solo to Taxman sounds so much brighter than before.
