Beatles Bank Holiday on BBC Radio 2

The Beatles triggered a musical revolution in the 1960s, introducing a modern sound that contrasted greatly with the music of the previous decade.

Between March 1962 and June 1965 the Beatles performed 53 times on BBC Radio, leaving a rich legacy of recordings which plot the band’s evolution.

Over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the Fab Four take over the BBC airwaves once again with Radio 2’s Beatles Bank Holiday.

BBC Radio 2 asked Wise Buddah to create three custom themes that reflected the different musical periods of this legendary band for use over the Bank Holiday weekend.

This is what they came up with…

    I like these jingles a lot! Maybe something of this style would be good for the ‘Sounds of the 60s’ show!?

    As has been pointed out on the BBC have some perfectly good, indeed BETTER jingles made by JAM to promote Beatles Day, made back in 1993. But the aesthetics of which is ‘better’ is in this case not as important as the COST. The BBC needs to make severe cuts in expenditure, to reflect the crisis in Britain. So WHY have they not just paid a SMALL re-licence fee for the JAM material, rather than a much larger fee for new material (THREE for one day!) + BBC staff time in briefing Wise Buddah over these new jingles? They are on air for just a week includng pre-promotion -so it is a SHOCKING waste of the (compulsory) BBC Licence pay fee as the LISTENERS will not notice WHICH was played!

    @Len –
    I don’t agree with that; the JAM cuts wouldn’t fit in with the current jingles – I think listeners would notice a difference!

    However there were some Groove ones created a few years ago… now Groove is still in use. Why can’t the Groove Beatles tracks have been used?

    As for your suggestion that it is a “SHOCKING waste of the (compulsery) BBC Licence pay fee”, the BBC license fee is not compulsery! If you don’t like paying it, don’t watch TV.
