  1. Great cover!!!

    I already downloaded it but haven't listened yet. Is this an upgrade of what already has been out there?

    Either way, thank you, yet again!! Yesterday I was listening to the Paul interview from Manchester 2011, good questions from the interviewer! Funny how Paul says "we always used to say Cole Porter was one of our favorites!"....I never remember you saying that Macca!!! It was always "Shirelles, Miracles, Marvin Gaye..." (I know he wasn't being disengenous though, he obviously knew enough Cole Porter to do a version of "The Way You Look Tonight" at the "I Will" session!).(hope you don't mind me leaving a comment for another download under this one!)

    As the header says something old, something new, something borrowed, something brown. Yes this set of interviews is an oldie but a goodie. There is a great deal of optimism from John and Paul in their new venture, if only they knew what the road ahead would hold.

    It's passed the three digit download mark in less than 24hrs aswell, so there's at least another 100 Beatles Fans who are enjoying the shows :)

    As for the Manchester 2011 interview

    Lennon said McCartney was a salesman and a bloody good one at that. I like you don't recall any mention of Cole Porter from previous interviews, but let's not let the truth get in the way of a good story.

    Both Macca and Ringo have been on good form in interviews over the past year or so and I'm looking forward to more of the same as the 50th festivities kick in.

  3. Yes! I just loaded into my i-pod all the 2012 interviews, in order, right now I'm listening to Ringo's Steve Wright in the Afternoon, GREAT interview!

    It's so funny, when I first discovered this site, I snapped up all the new interviews....but I didn't listen to them! I've been digesting all the older stuff (which is, of course, also great!), plus all the BBC radio documentaries, which are great (the Apple Scruffs one is one of my faves!).

    Anyways, keep up the good work! And so funny that hundreds know about this site (i was starting to think I was the only one!).

    You are truly our friend and brother, StudioTwo!!!! Thank you thank you thank you! Stuff I never thought I'd ever hear in my life!

    PS: one comment about the Apple interviews.....my favorite line HAS to be in the Larry Kane interview, near the beginning, when he asks them about the recent tragedy with Martin Luther King. John immediately quips, "of course we felt bad, whaddya think we are, deadbeats?!" HA!! Take that Larry! (I actually feel a little bad for Larry Kane towards the end of that interview, John and Paul seem to take the mickey out of him a bit! I wouldn't want to be in his shoes at that moment!)

    PSS: I found a copy of "Cellarful of Noise" a book I've never read and just assumed it was a lightweight. In fact, it is prophetic and beautiful and if there's anyone out there who has never read it, I encourage it. It really shows how much foresight Brian had, he makes pronouncements about how the dust that the Beatles kicked up will never settle in our lifetimes....and sure enough, he was right. In 1964!!!
