For the 20th anniversary I made a few sets of thesre trading cards as a memento for all those who had helped with the show.

 

PAPERWORK LISTS AND STUFF.

I thought for the interest of those who listen to the show I might give a glimpse of some of the more interesting documents from over the years.

PLAYLISTS

PLAYLIST PROGRAM ONE

Above: Playlist for program 1

For program one I did really detailed notes and worked to very tight brackets. This was because in these very early programs I was telling the story of the Beatles as best I knew it at the time. Listening back now I realize I made many errors but a lot has come out of the closet since the program and still is.

SNAPPER GENERIC TACKLIST

Above: Snapper's generic playlist 1993/1994

I think this is hilarious. How Snapper ever thought we were going to stick to this is beyond me. To tell the truth I don't think this was used. It's interesting that Andy's segment doing, In His Own Write and Spaniard In The Works is listed here as the segment only lasted about 2 weeks.

This list is dated between 93 and 94 as that's when I published the Murder Calendar and that is listed as a segment.

LIBB APRA SHEET

Above: Apra sheet 5TH January 1994

Apra sheets were required in the Early days when I did The Mad Parade as they were used to ensure each program was playing the agreed quota of Australian content. Let It Be Beatles was obviously exempt from this as we were listed as a specialist program. However In 1994 the management at the station was made up of volunteers and they thought it was best that we filled out the form. This was totally scrapped when a professional management team took over the station.

PLAYLIST MARCH 1995

Above: Playlist 29TH March 1995

I think this is one of Steve's lists it's from 1995. At the time we were running through all the Beatles EP's in order. I did a segment where I read out anything from newspapers magazines and television. I pretty much still do that segment today. Sticks was running through the songs the Beatles gave away. This was our second run through of these songs as we had done this back in 93. Simon was doing his Shocker From The Locker segment which was a great hit at the time. When he did this segment we were always on the lookout for foreign language versions of Beatles songs but rarely ever found any. Since the arrival of download we've found hundreds. Alas Simon had left the show so I filled the gap with the segment From Me To You-Go-Slavia.

simon play list

Above: Playlist 7TH December 1995

This was our first shot at doing a series of tracks that were left off the Anthology discs. Simon put this playlist together on a Mac computer he borrowed from Barney Rubble.

The track selection had  been a big topic of conversation ever since the release of the official track list of Anthology One. We all had differing opinions on what could have been on the albums. Simon's choice is from what we had in our collections at the time and has many tracks we all agreed on (Bad To Me, Love Of The Loved, Catswalk, etc).

TRACKLIST 96

Above: Playlist 16TH May 1996

Prior to becoming computer literate I used to handwrite my playlists. This show was just playing odd things from the American albums. Half of these were probably not played on the night.

 

200TH SHOW LIST

Above: 200TH Show 1ST August 1996

Baysey put together a tape of highlights of past shows that we could play on the night. this is the copy of the list he gave to snapper on the panel. The problem was setting up a tape to play these was hell as you had to fast forward and rewind and keep an eye on the turntable and the CD player. These were the days when doing the panel was a full time job. I always remember Steve being less than pleased that Baysey had chosen his late arrival after his car broke down as one of the highlights.

Playlist June 1998

Above: Playlist program 295 4TH June 1998

This is another one of Steve's lists. This one is a bit more open and probably reflects the future a bit. We dropped these lists soon after this, as we had done the show for so long we found we could really didn't need a time line. and most of these track lists prepared before the show show very little in common with the actual content of the shows. 

SUBSCRIBERS

SOME OF THE LISTENERS WHO BECAME SUBSCRIBERS.

FAMILIAR NAME

Above: SEPTEMBER 1995

Gav of course went on to be a panel member. When I mentioned to him that I had found this list he said "I don't ever remember becoming a subscriber, but there it is in black and white."

ANOTHER GOOD WEEK

Above: NOVEMBER 1995

The station no longer has subscriptions but when it did we were doing our part. This list from November 1995 includes future panel member and long term listener and guest alfred Daniel.

This list has some familiar names on it Dave Lane who of course ended up on the panel and Dave McHardy who was already on the panel. Joanna MacCarthy who has been our guest on the show a couple of times as was Peter Neal. It also includes one of our long term listeners Vasil Malelis who we still hear from.

FLYERS

FLYER GREEN FRONTFLYER GREEN BACK

Above: Flyer for Tell Me Why 2

I did this flyer as an insert in issue 2 of Tell Me Why in 1995

The front picture was a pun on our critical assessment of McCartney's solo years.

TELL ME WHY 3 FLYERTELL ME WHY FLYER BACK

Above: Flyer Tell Me Why 3

This was the promotional flyer for Tell Me Why 3 in August 1995

BEATLEFEST FLYER 1995BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Above: Beatlefest LIBB Flyer

I did this flyer for the 1995 Beatlefest to advertise our show. It was a 4 page flyer, the inside being a reproduction of newspaper articles on the show (See Nostalgia). the front page was a thing I did in Tell Me Why where I added a caption to a Beatles photo as a bit of a joke. One of the patrons that day was kind enough to tell me that the Beatles actually never attempted to record Mull Of Kintyre; it was written years later by McCartney and Denny Lane. I thanked him for pointing out my error and wished him well as he headed off to buy a Yellow Submarine lunch box. 

That was a funny day there was another patron there who was carrying around a briefcase. inside he had a copy of a Sgt. Peppers vinyl Album with no lyrics printed on the back. He was showing anyone who would stop and look. Just how prized this item is I have no idea.

Thursday Nights Flyer

Can't remember why I did this one. Maybe because the panel had settled at 4 members Me, Simon, Andy and Steve.

FLYER FEBRUARY 1999

In 1999 we moved from Thursday Nights to Friday nights. This meant that everyone could sleep in the next day but put us up against the final quarter of live football.

CHRISTMAS CARDS

LIBB CHRISTMAS CARD 1998

christmas card 1998

The panel was at 5 members in 1998 and Gary Greg and Dave were regular visitors. I think I included Brad McCrae because he appeared on the show that year. The card is done in the style of Beatle City

and portrays each member involved in pastimes they never really experienced.

 

LIBB FLYER 2011

With Alf and myself doing the record fairs nowadays I thought we should a have a flyer to have on our table.

So this is it. 

If you go into the Collectables fairs and dates section of this site you can find out which fairs we'll be at.
