Just FYI ~ Stern Beatles show

For those of you with access to Sirius Radio ~~

A guy named Andrew Mounter informs AbbeyRd.net News:
"Hey guys, I've been a reader of your website for years now, and is the only Beatle news site I trust.

I wanted to let your readers know that on Monday, May 28th on Sirius Radio, The Howard Stern Channel (Howard 100) will be running all day Howard Meets The Beatles.

This program will feature interviews with Paul and Ringo ~ the special also includes an interview with Sean Lennon, and performances from the Fab Faux."
The only Beatles news site he trusts?
What about the always great WhatGoesOn.com, courtesy of Walrus Media?

A pic on a ship with a funny Harrison face

So, it's not important enough (no Brian in it) to add to my Photobucket ~
but the look on George's face is worth giving y'all a link to ~
Looks like he's thinking, "okay, I'll smile, Eppy... but, frankly, I am sick of this shit!"



Must add that the description of an unpictured auction lot tickled my funnybone quite a bit:
These signatures were acquired by the vendor during the shooting of the promotional clips for Strawberry Fields Forever and Penny Lane at Knole Park, Sevenoaks, Kent, on either 31st January or 7th February, 1967.

At the time, the vendor was chief photographer for a local newspaper, the Sevenoaks Chronicle, and recalls receiving a tip-off that the Beatles would be at Knole Park. On arrival he was told by the producer that the press were not welcome, but managed to persuade him to let him take a few photographs on the understanding that he would not reveal what the film was for.

The vendor noticed Brian Epstein and asked him for his autograph and recalls ..."He was charming and signed my book three times.

I then...managed to get Ringo, John and Paul. Noticing Brian's signature, Paul asked..."Is Mr Epstein here, then?" (according to the vendor Epstein stayed only a short time before leaving).

George Harrison's signature was not obtained as he was, apparently, irritated at being asked to pose for photographs, dismissing the vendor and a colleague with the comment "Go take ******* photographs of yourself!"
