Kids Commute - Beatlemania Week!

Feb 19, 2021

It's BEATLEMANIA WEEK!

Hey Kids Commuters! The Beatles (John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison) were one of the most popular rock bands ever.

When they first appeared on the scene, teenage music-lovers went so bananas over them that their fandom became a sensation known as "Beatlemania!"

One of the reasons The Beatles were so popular is that they were incredible musicians and songwriters. This week, we'll hear classical musicians apply their styles to Beatles tunes!

We'll have a "beetle" themed Quizlet to bug you with, too.

Tune in Monday through Friday mornings at 7:40 a.m. on Classical IPR, or listen any time at the links below.

This week's MAYA MIX - our weekly Spotify playist - features entire albums: "Manuel Barrueco Plays Lennon and McCartney," "Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops Play the Beatles" and "Beatles Go Baroque Vol. 2" by Peter Breiner and his Orchestra.
