New Single *Baby You're A Rich Man*

“THE WEEKLINGS are America’s most dynamic touring tribute to the music and inspiration of THE BEATLES, performing explosive renditions of Beatles classics, uniquely arranged Beatles nuggets such as "Paperback Writer", "Baby You're a Rich Man" and “I Am the Walrus” plus brilliant Beatles-inspired power-pop originals, like their newest, “In The Moment”. The Weeklings embody the aura and bold creativity of the 1960s, bringing The Beatles to life, not through costumes and gimmicks, but through their extraordinary musicianship, exceptional vocals and charming stage presence. “They show their audiences both what The Beatles were, and what they might have been if they were performing today.”

This week, we add to our great collection of interviews as we talk with Roag Best, who's about to open the new Beatles Magical History Museum on Mathew Street in Liverpool.

And the packed show also includes our news section with a review of Paul McCartney's two new songs and our report on his recent surprise appearance in Liverpool.
