Tune in for Beatles covers by artists ranging from the Carlos Piper Orquestra and Johnny Puleo to The Waikikis and Helmut Zacharias!”

There’s no telling what’s in store when Pretty World’s Switched On Audrey starts at noon. Since the “No Beatles Music” edict has been lifted, she just might play the very first record she ever owned: The Beatles, 1962-1966. Or will she…?

Lee Joseph, host of Over Under Sideways Down brings to LuxuriaMusic’s Beatles Day a selection of Beatles recording sessions and un(officially) issued mixes and versions of songs spanning “Please Please Me” through “Abbey Road” plus, quite possibly, a couple of whacked covers including a tap dance cover version of the Fab Four’s later hit songs….
4:00 pm: Derrick Bostrom
Every deejay at Luxuriamusic has their own stash of favorite Fab-four-Related material, and we at “C’mon! Live A Little are no exceptions. In fact it would border on the truly miraculous if you didn’t find significant overlap among our various lists of cover, tributes, oddities and what-have-yous. Anyway, this Saturday,“C!LAL” presents an hour’s worth of some of the stuff we found lying around the house. Here’s hoping you discover something you haven’t already heard a hundred thousand times before.
5:00 pm: Carl Howard
It’s coming up on 5 pm, and you’ve now been drowning in Beatles- and Beatles-adjacent tributes for almost twelve hours. How can Carl Howard and Your One True “Space Patrol!” possibly toss in a lifeline? How about the fire of Soul and
the brimstone of Funk? How about the invigorating throb of the New Wave? That and more sandwiched into an hour, with a totally psychedelic and fully annotated playlist to help you follow along. Plus, tune in during the show to find out how to
download an expanded 90 minute version… for free!
6:00 pm: Gene Sculatti and Gary Schneider- My Dinner with Mr. Moonlight
Open Mynd Excursion host Gary Schneider and Atomic Cocktail producer Gene Sculatti, two guys who experienced the Beatles’ arrival in real time, sit around and talk: about initial impressions upon hearing them on the radio, about the fake Beatles LPs that flooded the stores, various Fifth Beatles, American boys singing about “gulls,” the band’s impact on American culture, reactions to Beatles music as it changed, and meeting (two of) the Beatles. Music will be played, opinions candidly expressed.
7:00 – 9:00 pm: Strike
Join the man whom Ringo calls ‘the 12,874th Beatle’ – the Kitsch Niche’s STRIKE -for TWO hours of Beatle-ish madness! Wacky tributes, horrific covers, awful break-ins, fake mop-tops, funky versions, sing-along instrumentals, barking dogs, and who knows…even a special visit from Sir Paul himself? Nah. It’d never happen. Even so, he guarantees a good time had by all! How do you find the show? Turn left at Greenland! Or, tune in from 7 – 9 pm PST
9:00 pm: Ron Sures
Hey, have you heard of The Beatles? It turns out they were pretty good! HOW good?
Join me, Ron (Sures) for an hour full of “Beatles Day” fun on Luxuriamusic.com, and we’ll find out together! I’ll be “Happy To Show You”! (Get it?) Get ready for some great Beatles covers, plus maybe all of John & Yoko’s “Two Virgins” and “Life With The Lions”?? Okay, not all of it – But maybe a minute or two! All of “Live Peace In Toronto”? Okay, no. But join me! It’ll be fun, I promise!
10:00 pm: TBA
11:00 pm: Howie Pyro
Liars, cheaters, thieves & exploiteers all saw the perfect wallet stuffer in the Fab Four. And early in the game before the names, faces & identities were cemented in stone, the people in hack studios pumping out 20 LPs a day to cash in on any quick fad of the moment for teens had the “three for a dollar” record racks of department stores packed with records by The Bootles, The Bottles, The Bratles, The Liverpools, The Four Fabs, etc etc. loads of 45s were also flying outta small labels by The American Beatles, & songs like The Beatle Bomb & Frankenstein Meets The Beatles were rampant. There were as many anti- Beatle records as faux four records. And there should have been! In the wild, wild, world of Intoxica Radio these records never stopped being released and are way bigger hits than any Beatle record could ever be. Wanna step off a cultural cliff & fall into the inside-out a go go dimension of Howie Pyro’s Intoxica Radio? Then tune in for the LAST hour of LuxuriaMusic’s Beatles Day.
