beatles rfci 003Last week we told you how Radio Free Charleston International host, Rudy Panucci, is a huge Beatles Freak. That’s why he brought you two hours of Beatles songs and covers. This week on RFCI, get ready for two more hours of Beatles tribute music.

You will hear more lesser-know cuts from The Fab Four, live solo cuts from John, Paul, George and Ringo, and tons of Beatles covers by recording artists both obscure and of superstar status. A highlight of this episode is an attempted recreation of side two of the classic Beatles album, Abbey Road.

Tonight at Midnight (and Friday at 10 PM and Saturday morning at 11 AM, all times Eastern) you can tune in to hear this brand-new episode of Radio Free Charleston International. You can tune in at Appalachian Independent Radio, or just listen right up there in that handy little virtual transistor radio.

This show was produced and scheduled before we learned of the passing of Sir George Martin, the producer of most of the Beatles albums. We dedicate this program to “the fifth Beatle.”
