All The Chatter That Matters

We don't start until 8 pm eastern, so it won't interfere with your early voting, but if you vote "John Paul George or Ringo", we'll elect YOU to come inside the Beatle Brunch Club chatroom this Thursday night, November 3rd from 8 to 9 pm.

We'll discuss everything Beatles - and nothing political, except, "who's your favorite Beatle first lady? Cyn, Yoko, Linda, Heather, Patti, Olivia, Nancy, Maureen or Barbara?"  See ya Thursday!

Things He Said Today 
By Joe Johnson, Beatle Brunch Host  
Hey Brunchers, welcome back to another Fab read in the month we give thanks, November. Even though my Halloween cavities haven't even begun to hurt, a man with a flaming head tells us that the holidays are about to get very Beatley!   

First off, we've got the Yellow Submarine LEGO available now (see more below), plus in just two weeks, "Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years" will be out on DVD and blu-ray with hours of bonus footage to take us into the new year.

The frequent question we get is, "Will the Shea Stadium concert be included in that release?"  We can say with near certainty, "NO".  There are two reasons: One, there seems to be some litigation between Sid Bernstein's family, who owns the film footage, and Apple, who's been showing it in theaters, and two,  if and when it does come out, our sources say that Apple would want a dedicated Shea Stadium release and wouldn't just put it out as an ad-on to a film.  But now that we know it's available and looks Fab, we're happy to  "Wait".

Meanwhile, here at Beatle Brunch Headquarters  (above), we've been churning out new shows every week, with lots of Brunch listeners contributing, most recently to our "Sweet Apple Slices" show that aired last weekend, so thanks Mo!  And as you can also see in the photo above, Brunch host Joe J is planning our special "Remembering George" show airing later this month, with more fab contributions from fans and Beatle musicians, so if you wanna know a secret, listen. 

In The Blink of Paul's Eye-A NEW Song!

Sir Paulie has a new song out and we're excited to play it for you on this weekend's Beatle Brunch, but if you can't wait, click on one of the Brunch Bytes on our home page. Look for the graphic on the left.

Brunch Bytes are your new Ticket to Hear Fab clips and audio that we happen upon during the week, so Thanks Paul for your new song, "In the Blink of an Eye". We love  it!


Join the Club as a Member of the BBC!

 "I don't want to belong to any club that would accept me as a member", He Said He Said.

When legendary funny man Groucho Marx wrote those words in 1949, there was no Beatle Brunch Club.  Well, seeing as The Beatles liked being compared to The Marx Brothers in their first feature film, we just know that Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo (the 30's version of JPG&R) would all love hearing years of Beatle Brunches on-demand, plus Old Brown Shows going back to when Groucho was knee high to a beetle.

Members get SO many benefits, as listed above, including listening to the show a day early on Saturday.  So don't be a Groucho, join The Club!

Our John Lennon in The USA - Should He Go or Should He Stay?

A new book out now, details the struggles that John Lennon had in his quest to stay in the land of the free: the USA.

The struggle took place in the mid 70's and there were serious connections to President Richard Nixon, who wanted Lennon deported.  John was eventually awarded his "U.S. Resident Alien Registration" on July 4, 1976, but died before he could apply for U.S. Citizenship in 1981.

You can read all about it in the new book, " John Lennon vs. The USA: The Inside Story of the Most Bitterly Contested and Influential Deportation Case in United States History", by Lennon's attorney Leon Wildes, with foreword by Michael Wildes.

Look for Tom Frangione's excellent review in the latest Beatlefan Magazine.
