This Week in Beatles “History”

September 28, 1963: New York DJ Murray The K receives a copy of the Beatles’ “She Loves You” and plays it on radio station WINS-AM.

It’s believed to be the first Beatles song ever played in the U.S.

Sadly, no one remembers this historic act, but people still ask what the hell “The K” means.

 

September 25, 1967: The Beatles record “Fool on the Hill” at Abbey Road studios.

Paul would later say, “I was writing about someone like Maharishi (Yogi). His detractors called him a fool. Because of his giggle, he wasn’t taken too seriously. Plus, he dressed badly, didn’t bathe often, and was mildly retarded.”

September 28, 1968: The Beatles had not only their biggest hit, but largest selling record of the 60′s when “Hey Jude” reached the top of the U.S. charts.

The song, written by Paul for John’s son Julian, would stay at number one in America for nine weeks and sell over eight million copies, causing the phrase, “na na na na na na na na na na na hey Jude” to be banned from all future musical recordings for eternity.

 

September 26, 1969: The Beatles release their 13th album in the U.K., “Abbey Road”.

It’s issued in the U.S. a week later and is the last album they will ever make together as a group.

Despite the (disguised) hostility, mutual disrespect, death threats, hiring of hit men, etc. during the recording, it remains one of their most critically acclaimed albums, although it’s obvious by the cover that Paul was being tagged as the first victim.
