Beatles Medley

Sundays at 6:30 p.m. on IPR News/Studio One and Fridays at 2:30 p.m. on Studio One online

Enjoy half an hour of uninterrupted material from one of the most influential rock and roll bands in history. Hear rare material and familiar masterpieces recorded by John, Paul, George and Ringo as The Beatles. In addition, hear music created by the boys from Liverpool as solo artists and as leaders of bands like The Plastic Ono Band, The Traveling Wilburys and Wings.

If you would like to submit a playlist for this feature, here are the rules:
1) All the songs have to have at least one of the four Fabs playing on the song, either with The Beatles of from their solo careers
2) You can have a theme or not!
3) You can only play three in a row by any one artist
4) The hard part: it has to time out to as close to 27 minutes as possible, not to exceed 27 minutes.
