The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

BBC Radio 2 Salute The Beatles: Paul Merton's Beatles & Sgt. Pepper Forever

Paul Merton is a respected British comedian, broadcaster and writer who appears on the BBC panel show 'Have I Got News For You'. In this BBC Radio 2 production, he imagines what would have happened if the Beatles (along with some of their famous friends) had re-united for a one off concert in 1974. In a four part series, Merton, a Beatlemaniac like all the rest of us, presents this concert with a Terry Wogan-esque narration. Have a listen at the link below and just imagine what it might have been like:

 And if that isn't enough, Martin Freeman (Yes, John Watson himself is a massive Beatles fan, didn't you know? Sherlock though, he can't understand the appeal!) presents a documentary also on Radio 2 about Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. You can also listen to it free and un-geoblocked (The BBC are totally fine with everyone in the world listening to their radio) right at the link below:
