Is there so much as one Beatles song that never got airplay?
Just going through my collection, and I can't find one anywhere that has not been played on the radio at some point. Now I'm curious to find out if they have ANY "unknown" music.

Listening to Sir Paul now, doing a live Hey Jude. One of my favorites.

2. Most songs on White Album never got airplay...
which is too bad ... it is far and away the best stuff they ever did...Sgt. Pepper Album is way over rated.

4. Don't kid yourself
When first released, many of the more progressive (mostly California and Chicago) stations played the whole shebang over and over for DAYS.

It was a sort of mini-music revolution in and of itself.

5. Your post made me remember when the
radio stations published a list of Top 40 songs. In 64-65, Number one was usuallly "All Beatles Songs." There were so many they would have shut out all the other artists.

6. "You Know My Name(Look Up The Number)"
Never heard that one on the radio except for the perennial A-Z countdowns.
