Dear Beatle Brunch Listener:

What an exciting year it’s been already. Here at Beatle Brunch we’re very pumped up about the Cirque du Soleil LOVE show that’s currently at The Mirage in Las Vegas, and we hope to meet many of you there in July at the Fest for Beatles Fans gathering. I’ve seen the show and I’m going back to see it again during the fest week.

First off, we want to thank you for listening each week, either on your local station, or through streaming audio from one of our “stations” listed on www.brunchradio.com. Sorry I missed the NJ Fest I got snowed out of the North East and had to spend a sunny weekend in Ft. Lauderdale lying by the pool. Oh well, next time.

I’d like to thank all of you who enter and win the weekly “Mind Games” Contest. Especially our Fab Four excited winners who recently won a signed copy of Paul McCartney’s “The Space Within Us” DVD, from Beatle Brunch and AETV. We have one more to give away that we’ve been saving for the Paul McCartney birthday show coming up June 17th. So listen and win!

Speaking of Paul, his new CD is due out just before his birthday and is said to be called, “Memory Almost Full”. We know it’s been a tough 15 months for Paul and his family, and we wish him the best, of course. Hopefully we’ll all LOVE his new CD as much as we enjoyed “Chaos and Creation in the Backyard”. Meanwhile, Ringo’s new disc will also be out this summer, called “Liverpool 8”.

If you’re like me, you probably love some of the Beatle tribute bands. Some of my favorites are 1964, Louise Harrison’s buds Liverpool Legends; Revolution; The Fab Four and one to keep an eye on, FabForever, coming soon to Las Vegas. But if I had to pick a sentimental favorite, it would be the guys of New York’s The Fab Faux, Will Lee and Company. I really encourage you to check these guys out. They don’t dress up like The Beatles, but they are some of the best musicians on the planet who happen to play everyday on national TV (Letterman and Conan). They mainly play in the NY area, but we would love to bring them out to a show near you. Check their website, www.fabfaux.com. You’ll be hearing more from them in the coming months on the show.

In a few weeks on the show, we’ll be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band being released (June 2, 1967 in the U.S.). Listen for a special Beatle Brunch all about it.

And I also want to tell you about something you’ll be hearing about real soon. My buddy Joe B has come up with this amazing Bee Pollen supplement that will make you feel fab every day. No plug here, I just take it and I love the way I feel. So look for that real soon on our site.

On behalf of all of us in the Beatle Brunch family, everyone at Amerimedia and our awesome webmasters Rob & Deb from Art and Soul Graphics (check em out! They can design and host your site to look this good!), and our contributors Tom Frangione, Bill Haack, Bruce Spizer, Steven King, Gary Hein, Anthony Parisi, Don E. Gee, Tom Fontaine, Apple, Capitol and Westwood One, please have a Fab summer, and thanks for taking the time to enjoy this special message from Beatle Brunch. See you on the radio real soon.
