Earth News Radio - History Of The Beatles 
First off thanks to those of you who left me a message yesterday.
I know you're dying to know:
The hospital fucked up with the appointments and so I didn't get the scan.
Bollocks to that.
OK as I sensed a great response to The Lennon Tapes I thought I'd give you another little known gem from my archives which is a series on Earth News Radio (wherever that is/was?) in 1978.
Best of all is the fact that The Beatles and some of their friends are the ones telling you the story! You get the truth, as they each see it, about how it went bad and what happened over the course of their career as a band.
This is a collection of shows which, although each lasts only a couple or three minutes, tells the story of The Beatles and how they went from the happy innocent beginnings to the rather unfriendly and shitty endings(!)...
..through the drugs, fights, envy and then disdain, until the final split after the 'Let It Be' film.
This is definitely worth hearing even if you don't worship or care much for The Beatles, you should find it interesting for the story element and the drama alone.
They went through quite a whirlwind and I had a bit more respect for Paul McCartney and the rest after hearing this. (I used to think he was just a head-wagging, funny-looking, irritating squealy-voiced prick!)
Not now of course!
Well you better get broadband !
Just wanted to give you some accompanying imagery..
Don't miss it as I always seem to say, download it or regret it for life.

You might find yourself getting pissed off hearing the ad for 'cream rinse and conditioner' that some american twat keeps saying at the beginning of every damn section!!! If I could have shot him through my stereo I would!!
(I need anger management though, you probably won't be affected by him at all).
I have a deep-rooted problem with advertising. I detest the fucking patronising attitude that advert creators adopt. Why do they do this?? Do they think that the people who might buy their products will only do so if they are talked to as if they are a 12yr old with no idea about life and the world around them, who blindly buy anything as long as its got a catchy irritating fucking song attached to it??!
I mean how fucking gullible do they want us to be??
I think advertising would work, on me at least, if they just came on and said something like -
'Our stuff isn't shit. In fact the other company is the one selling the shit stuff. We won't promise you anything if you buy our shit but hey, we are being honest here and we think our shit is pretty good. If you don't believe us then we don't want your custom anyway so fuck you'.
That would get my attention.
