Wax! Crackle! Pop!

Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #13: Butchered or Nurtured? Covering The Beatles.

Tuesday, February 18


February 9, 1964: The Beatles perform on The Ed Sullivan show, forever changing pop music and culture as we know it. February 9, 2014: 50 years later, W!C!P! pays our respects and play to reflect what the Beatles done and what other artists had done to Beatles songs. Too many choice covers to fit in two hours. Look for a sequel in the future…
