    Ian mentioned some K-Tel gizmos from our faraway youths. Here is a link to a bunch of ads, but we’ll post a couple of choice ones below:































    And for some reason the article missed this gizmo, which seemed so magical when we were kids:

    Real Love

    Well, Beatles fans, this is it: the final episode of Compleatly Beatles. We have to say we’re a little bit sad, but also pretty proud of this series. We know some of you wanted us to keep the show going into the solo albums, but we felt like that was not the core mission of the show – which was to look at and discuss every Beatles album from Please Please Me to Abbey Road and that’s exactly what we did.

    You’ll be glad to know that we answered some of your questions – hopefully all of them, but if we left someone out, we blame Dave. Speaking of Dave, he got to nerd out on some deep context, and he and Ian had some fun answering  questions like favourite Beatle books, ranking the albums and making their personal Beatle playlists.

    A big thank you to all our listeners and a big thank you to those of you who have written into the show over the last few months with your comments, questions, trivia, corrections, interesting links, stories, etc. We’ve loved hearing from all of you. And a big thanks to Wayne Henderson of mediavoiceovers.com for sending us some recorded feedback. It was a real pleasure to receive something extra we could use on the show (and boost our egos!). Wayne hosts five different podcasts (!) – and Ian and Dave complain about doing two – including The Packers Fan Podcast and an Under the Dome podcast. You can see his other podcasts at his website. He’s a busy guy!

    Goodbye, everyone! Thank you for listening.

    The Beatles Movies

    The Beatles Movies

    Hello, Beatle fans. On this episode of Compeatly Beatles, Ian and Dave take a look at all the Beatles films: A Hard Day’s Night, Help!, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine and Let It Be. As usual, there is lots of background and history, but there is lots of discussion about the films. Which is their favourite? And which is their least favourite? As usual, they do not agree, but you’ll have to listen to find out the answer!

    Oh, bee tee dubs, Clara Bow was the “It” girl, not Mary Pickford, who was “American’s Sweetheart” or Theda Bara, the first “vamp”.

    Abbey Road

    Abbey Road

    It’s the end of the road (see what I did there?) for Compleatly Beatles‘ look at all the Beatles’ albums – song by song, album by album. We did it! We hope you enjoyed this journey from Please Please Me – an album recorded in one day – to Abbey Road – an album with one song that took six months to complete! Which song? Well, you’ll just have to listen to Ian and Dave as they take a long (a very long) look at the Beatles final album: Abbey Road. It’s almost like they couldn’t say goodbye.

    But that’s not the end for Compleatly Beatles. We’d like to do at least one more podcast covering the films and we are also planning a question and answer show. So, if you have any questions you’re dying to ask Ian and Dave – maybe something they didn’t cover, maybe a specific question about their own Beatle likes and dislikes – this is your chance! Leave questions for us on the Facebook page, drop us a line on Twitter at @Sneaky_Dragon, write something here on the website or shoot us an email. We’re hoping for lots of questions!

    Let It Be

    Let It Be

    On this episode of Compleatly Beatles, Ian and Dave take a look at Get Back/Let It Be, the Beatles most turbulent album, recorded at a particularly unhappy time for the band – George Harrison himself called the recording sessions “hell”. There is so much history and drama to this album that the historical context almost overwhelms the song by song analysis, but it’s all very interesting and we’re sure you will enjoy it. So sit back and let’s Get Back

    (PS. We know that Let It Be officially came out after Abbey Road, but since it was recorded first old Mr. Stickler, David, insisted on doing this album first.)

    Yellow Submarine

    Yellow Submarine

    Well, everyone, it seems like it’s time to take a look at the red-headed stepchild of the Beatles’ catalogue and give a quick once over before we move on to more important albums, but Dave says not so fast. He thinks it’s time we re-evaluated this much-maligned record and remove what he calls “The Curse of the Yellow Submarine Soundtrack”. And he makes a pretty darn convincing argument too. Perhaps you’ll agree with him; perhaps not – but join Ian and Dave as they take another look at some of the most overlooked and underrated songs in the Beatles catalogue.
