A Fab Hello from The Club!

You may have noticed that we are updating and upgrading our Beatle Brunch website. This is long overdue, as many of our listeners have requested that we provide them with amenities that we were just not equipped to do. Well, now we're going to give you so much more!

Read all about The Beatle Brunch Club, and please join us online! Go to BeatleBrunchClub.com and for around 7-cents a day you can be a full password protected member. We have spent 16 years presenting the award winning radio program, Joe Johnson's Beatle Brunch, to you free of charge, and we will continue to do so, but we ask for your support to take the show to a new dimension and level.

Also, read about our Beatle Brunch Cruise. We've hosted these cruises before, but they were very cost prohibitive, in the thousands of dollars per person. Well, we've put together a more affordable cruise that's 4 nights and starts at $409 pp and includes some Beatle celebrities, radio personalities, and a killer Beatle Band, "The Return". I've seen these guys. Not only are they terrific, but they are the ages The Beatles were when they played these songs originally. You will really enjoy them.

Lastly, we had a fab time at the NJ Meadowlands Fest, as witnessed by the great photos and story you'll see here. We will definitely see you in Las Vegas the weekend of June 29th, so come on out! You can "bet" you'll be full of LOVE (at the Mirage Hotel) and leave with lots of Beatle Brunch prizes in our Trivia and Name that Beatle Tune contests, we'll also have a special edition for kids.

The Fest Was A Big Success!

Many fans were on hand to see film stars from "Across The Universe" and headliner Patti Boyd (George's first wife), 2 members of Wings and more

Special report by Tom Frangione
THE FEST was jam-packed with fans making up for lost time and drawn by a stellar list of guests and special Beatle Brunch events. Many of the fans also stopped by the Beatle Brunch Table in the dealer room to meet Joe Johnson & Tom Frangione and Beatle Brunch artists Anthony Parisi & Rob Korhonen, plus a guest appearance by our pals Rik Sansone and Steve Altman. Joe J and Tom Frangione handled the hosting of the Beatles Trivia Contests and the Name That Beatle Tune competition for great Beatle Brunch prizes, like “Help!” shirts, DVDs, CDs, Ringo posters and bumper stickers and more. One of the highlights was the Kids Trivia, which was a blast for fans and family!

Tom Frangione moderated a panel on the "Get Back / Let It Be" sessions with Doug Sulpy and Ray Schweighardt. Joe also interviewed Nancy Andrews (Ringo's girlfriend for about 5 years in the late seventies). Nancy's new book "A Dose Of Rock And Roll" is a terrific collection of snapshots of Ringo and some "very special friends" from that era.

Fans were able to delight in performances by two members of Wings - guitarist Laurence Juber and drummer Denny Seiwell. Their renditions of Wings material and a few songs from the White Album (with a little help from Mark Hudson) was an awesome show!

Apple Records honchos Alan Steckler and Ken Mansfield were on hand for a special panel with our Beatle Brunch pal Bruce Spizer.

Joe also followed up on his original interview with Ken Mansfield, one time Apple rep in America. Ken’s new book, “The White Book” is chock full of intimate stories about his years with the boys.

Look for us again in Vegas the end of June and August in Chicago! And as always, stay tuned to Beatle Brunch for all the latest news on the Fests and Ringo's Summer Tour! And listen for interviews with fellow fans on special upcoming installments of Beatle Brunch spotlighting Linda McCartney and others.
