Today, 50 years ago, on June 1st, in 1967, the Beatles released this album in the US:Sgt._Pepper's_Lonely_Hearts_Club_Band.jpg

Listen to it now, streaming on WPKN (Purple Knights Network) of Bridgeport, CT off the original 1967 album. It is one of  the 75,000 vinyl records in their collection:

Go to archives , click on Peter Bochan – All Mixed Up for a great show of expertly cut sounds of songs (rare versions) and the Beatles’ talking.

The many DJ’s various shows are kept online for a couple of weeks in the archives.

WPKN is an incredible resource, truly non-profit and renegade, with excellent music reflecting the different DJ’s and their expertise and tastes.  The one consistent thread is that the DJ’s are extremely knowledgeable in their field. This is a real labor of love and passion. All genres. I have expanded my mind and ears on this site.

Music. It does not get more intense. And the collection is nowhere as good as here.

Enjoy exploring…while fixing the hole where the rain gets and stops my mind from wandering…

    Poor weather? Time for some old-school-amusement: Shopping. Preferably in good company:

    Yeah, no sissies, but a band. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Been on board with PKN for over 40 years now. It’s a great station. Hopefully, the new transmitter reaches more and more of you. “It really doesn’t matter if I am wrong or right…”
