BBCR2 - 1966 - Sounds of the 20th Century

1966 is the year of England's World Cup triumph. The word
 "trip" takes on a new meaning as The Byrds go 8 Miles 
High and the Beach Boys celebrate Good Vibrations. 
But it's also the year of Harold Wilson's prices and 
wages freeze and the gritty realism of Alfie, Till Death 
Us Do Part and Z Cars. For James Brown It's A Man's
 Man's Man's World, on the catwalks there's a battle 
between mini and maxi skirts and in 
south-east Asia, The War Drags On.

BBCR2 - 1965 - Sounds of the 20th Century

In 1965 Britain mourns Winston Churchill and Richard Dimbleby. 
America experiences riots at home and war in Vietnam. It's the 
year of Like a Rolling Stone, Mr Tambourine Man, My Generation, 
Satisfaction and Yesterday, and on the radio Alan Freeman's 
Pick of the Pops is still required listening, but the latest transistor 
radios are tuned to Caroline and Big L. Meanwhile, on black 
and white TV, everyone's watching The Avengers and 
The Man from UNCLE.

was recorded in Starr's own home in the Hollywood hills.

BBCR2 - 1964 - Sounds of the 20th Century

In 1964, British teenagers get their first taste of all-day pop 
radio as the pirate ships sail onto the medium wave. 
America goes all the way with LBJ, and while the Mods 
and Rockers are fighting on the beaches, Harold Wilson
 ends 13 years of Tory rule.
Meanwhile, The Beatles are busy conquering America
 and Tamla Motown's doing the same in the UK. People 
are Dancin' in the Street but it's A Hard Day's Night.

BBCR2 - 1963 - Sounds of the 20th Century

The year opens with the big freeze and ends with the world mourning 
a young President shot dead in Dallas Texas. In between, Lord Beeching 
 wields his axe on Britain's railways and it's the year of the Great 
Train Robbery. In music, there's a Mersey boom and chart 
domination for the new beat groups from Liverpool. And there's a revolution 
underway in television too, led by the young David Frost
 and That Was the Week That Was.

The Beatles Radio Waves Blog is one year old today.
When I started this blog my plan was to publish a 100 or so radio
shows from the collection I'd stacked up over the years.
Through various sources more radio shows
have been donated and found.

223 show have been uploaded to the blog and I can confirm
I have enough shows to keep going for the next year or so.

Megauploads disappearance has caused a bit of a wrinkle and many of
the shows from mega have been re-upped. If you do come across a
show that has a dead link and you'd like the show, please leave a comment.
I'll re-up at my earliest convieniance.

We are about to enter 50 year celebrations, so I'm hopeful of lots
more radio shows to look forward to.

I'd like to thank all who have contributed,commented and visited.

"thank you very much, you have a lucky face"
