The cover photo, taken by photo artist Robert
Whitaker, so shocked record store owners and reviewers, that
it was immediately recalled by Capitol Records, who chose to paste
a rather tame slick over the offending cover. Little did they know
that they were only increasing the value of the ones that got away.
Today, Butcher Cover albums in sealed condition can for as much
as $50,000, even the pasted-over ones command big bucks.
Well hear from Butcher experts Bruce
Spizer, Jason Anjourian and Gary
Hein on the albums notoriety, plus historical interviews
from John Lennon in 1974 and more
recently, Ringo Starrs comments
on the album to Joe Johnson last year when he was kicking off his
All Starr Band tour.
Dont forget to click on the After
Brunch that weekend to see some of Gary Heins
pristine Butcher Cover albums that he has in his collection and
for sale. Gary is an expert on the album and has professionally
peeled more than 100 Butcher Covers. Dont ruin history by
trying to peel yours yourself, call Gary at 732-219-1988 or visit

Beatle Brunch Celebrates Year 18
This weekend were featuring Sgt Peppers Lonely
Hearts Club Band, the album we spotlighted on our first broadcast
back in 1992.
The idea for Beatle Brunch was born when Joe was driving his then
new 1992 Mitzubishi Eclipse, the first car he ever owned with an
in-dash CD player. He was on a long ride to see the family in Miami
and popped his Beatles CDs into the player. He was so amazed at
the quality and clarity (wait until 09/09/09 when the remasters
come out!) that he immediately dreamed up the idea of producing
a weekly radio show featuring the Fab Four. His Program Director
at the radio station in South Florida was hot for it, and so began
Joe Johnsons Beatle Brunch, born May 31, 1992.
The show opened in 5 radio markets: Miami, Baltimore, Laconia,
Indianapolis and Washington DC. Since that time, Beatle Brunch has
branched out to nearly 120 radio stations in the U.S., Canada and
The Virgin Islands via Westwood One and can also be heard in streaming
audio via www.BrunchRadio.com/Stations.
Joe would like to personally thank all of the Beatle fans who have
made the show such a lasting success, as well as the many sponsors
and supporters over the years, including Mark
Lapidos at thefest.com,
Tom Fontaine from www.RockandRollInvestments.com,
Russ Lease at www.BeatleSuits.com, Gary Hein at www.Beatles4Me.com,
Anthony Parisi from www.ParisiStudios.com,
Bruce Spizer at www.Beatle.net,
Don E. Gee and Bob River at www.AmeriMediaUSA.com,
Rob and Deb Korhonen from www.ArtandSoulGraphics.com,
plus our pals Mr. Beatle, Tom Frangione, Ed Rudy, The Fab Faux,
Revolution, Bootleg Beatles, Yesterday, The Fab Four, 1964, Rain,
Silver Seas Cruises, Tony Bramwell, May Pang, Nancy Lee Andrews,
Laurence Juber, Pete Best, Louise Harrison, Larry Kane, Joe Blumenstein,
