New Three Part Beatles Radio Series – “Here, There & Everywhere”

Coming soon to a radio station near you – a new radio special about the Beatles as a musical phenomenon.

Officially sanctioned and distributed to radio stations by Apple and EMI Music, The Beatles: Here, There and Everywhere is a three-part radio special featuring exclusive new interviews with a variety of artists and producers talking about the influence of the The Beatles on their individual careers. Brian Wilson, Tom Petty, Dave Grohl, Jeff Lynne, Anne and Nancy Wilson, Peter Asher, Jackson Browne, Bob Seger, T-Bone Burnett, Cameron Crowe and Rick Rubin all take part. The series is narrated by veteran British presenter and music writer Paul Gambaccini.

Written and produced by Beatles historian Kevin Howlett (he researched and wrote all the liner notes for the new Remastered CDs), the three 48 minute installments each take a different thematic approach. The website has this summary of each episode:

Part One: Meet The Beatles!

The interviewees recorded exclusively for this series reveal the impact made upon them by The Beatles’ records from throughout their career. We hear Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys, Tom Petty, film director Cameron Crowe and Ann & Nancy Wilson (of Heart) talking about their first-hand experience of The Beatles’ phenomenal 1964 breakthrough in the United States. Dave Grohl, Mark Ronson and Slash discuss the enduring influence of albums such as Rubber Soul, Revolver and Abbey Road.

Part Two: Ask Me Why

The interviewees focus on the various elements within the group that combined to make The Beatles so musically powerful: their strengths as performers – both instrumentally and vocally – plus the brilliance of John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison as songwriters.

Part Three: The Beatles On The Record

We hear how The Beatles’ music was captured on record with the help of innovative arrangements and adventurous production by George Martin. Some of today’s leading record producers – Peter Asher, Joe Boyd, T-Bone Burnett, Jeff Lynne, Mark Ronson and Rick Rubin – marvel at the dazzling creativity evident in recordings made more than 40 years ago.

If you didn’t get to hear it over the Thanksgiving holiday, or its still to come to a radio station nearby, here is a short extract from the opening sequence from Part One:

  2. please HELP!! I need somebody… oops

    regarding this BBC radio “3 part” series… I have been able to only find reference to a “2 part” series with part 1 Ask me Why and part 2 The Beatles on the Record. I have searched high and low and find only a few (such as this site) references to “part 1 Meet the Beatles!”. All such sites (including this post) reference “” which is 404 and the wayback machine ends its cache at Oct 27 2009 with this series beginning the week of Dec 1 2009.

    Do you know what’s the deal?

    This site is the only referenced site with a sample of this elusive part 1 Meet the Beatles! If you have the whole show, would you please please please upload it to rapidshare, megagupload, or the easiest, mediafire.

    Here is a mediafire link for part 3 (as referenced above)

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    respectfully submitted… tst


  3. Just been listening to some of the cut down version thats streaming via iTunes. Is there a way to hear the complete series? I can get episodes 2 and 3 that were broadcast on BBC Radio, but episode 1 is tricky to track down!


      • Hi, I also came to your site while looking for this series. I thought it would be offered on iTMS, but I guess not. Do you have any information on where I could find these?

        Great site BTW! I’m an older collector that grew up with the Beatles. I have tons of old bootleg vinyl I need to go through and catalog one day.

        Thanks for any information you could provide.


      • Hi Alan,
        Good to hear from you – and write to me when you drag out those bootlegs! I’ve sent you some further information direct to your email address regarding the radio series.


  4. I can’t seem to find all the other parts either. Could you please email me on where to find them. I have part 3 due to tst posting the link. Thank you


  5. Hello, I’ve been trying to find the radio series too but only found the series on iTunes. Please can you help me find where to get it from.

  7. Hi,
    I seem to be in the same position as a lot of other regular visitors to this site. I too have ‘Ask Me Why’ and ‘On The Record’, listed as parts 1 and 2 when broadcast in 2009 or 2010 on the BBC (which is where I grabbed them from) but I’ve never heard of ‘Meet The Beatles’ anywhere other than here. If anyone can give me some info, it would be gratefully received. Cheers!
