It was 20 years ago when The Beatles
’ discography was first released on compact disc, and since then, they have been left untouched (with the exception of Let It Be…Naked
). However, on 09.09.09, their albums have been re-released and remastered individually or in limited edition box sets available in both stereo and mono! All 3 Amoeba stores celebrated this with giveaways, DJs and the support of Beatlemaniacs!
The Berkeley Branch had its leaves shaking with the Fab 4’s music all day long. At 1pm, DJ JoNasty
played favorite songs of the Liverpool quartet, as well as some of their solo work and covers by others. At 2pm, the giveaways began with MC Emily
announcing each of the trivia questions, at the top of every hour.
At 4pm, DJ Ken Kubla
took over the decks, playing songs that inspired The Beatles, ones they covered or people covering their material.
Here are the trivia questions:
1) Who was the original drummer for the Beatles?
