Things He Said Today
By Joe Johnson 



Happy July Beatle Brunchers, and this week, may the 4th be with you, as in July 4th.  This weekend we'll be celebrating both the 4th and the 7th as Ringo's birthday is this Tuesday.

Listen for an all-new Beatle Brunch we like to call "Starrs and Stripes", a salute to all things Ringo and The American Influence.  Remember to wish someone around you "Peace and Love" at noon this Tuesday as is Ringo's tradition.


The All Starr Band is back on tour to play 22 dates in October, we hope you will enjoy the show.

As for me and my band of Beatle Brunchers, I'm especially humbled by the honor bestowed upon me by The Broward Palm Beach New Times, who named yours truly, The Best FM Personality in the Miami / Ft. Lauderdale radio market for 2015, for something I bring to thousands of listeners across the nation every week: The Beatles on Beatle Brunch.  Many of you may know that in addition to my love and presentation of The Fabs every week, I'm the live midday host 10-3 every weekday, at Magic 102.7 in Miami, playing The Greatest Hits of the 70s and 80s (and I get to Get Back to The Beatles on Sunday mornings). Well thank you New Times!  You can sing "Don't Let Me Down" with confidence. I will live up to the honor.  


A Fan on the Run Runs into Paul  

Beatlefan writer and Macca fan extraordinaire Rick Glover is still singing "Maybe I'm Amazed" after
having his Fan on the Run dream come true. Rick was invited up on stage at Paul's Columbia SC concert
on June 25th, when he held up a sign asking if he could give Paul a "Fans on the Run" badge.  

Turns out it was Rick's 135th McCartney concert and he gave Paul way more
than a badge, he gave and got a hug.  Congratulations Rick! 
Paul returns to the states next when he gets "Out There at Lollapalooza" on July 31st.

Since the Berlin Wall another bastion still stands in celebration of man's irrepressible idealism.
This structure is known as The Lennon Wall - Lennon, as in John, not Lenin, as in Vladimir.
