    "In 1976, SNL offered $3000 to the Beatles to reform and play on the show. It's not the only money offered for the Beatles to reform but it is the offer they came closest to taking. We have all the audio from the show and the story."

BioProf ,

Stick to the music.

I have listened to this usually entertaining podcast for more than a year, but the recent episode about COVID and concerts has turned me OFF. Co-host Tammy’s pseudo-medical advice is not only wrong, but deadly. You should apologize to your listeners for giving this bull a voice.

I wanted to like it.

He hosts seem like decent people but the constant breaks were frustrating. The episode was supposed to be about touring and being able to make it but they went on rambling about classic rock bands that are affluent. There was barely any time to discuss the actual topic. I’m curious if this is just because the host has no experience in touring and could not really talk on the subject.

Also Dio passed away in 2010. His wife made the statement. Please fact check.
