The Beatles Rooftop Concert

Favorite Mini: The Beatles Rooftop Concert

Alex has deemed this one of her favorite minisodes of the show. It’s worth a listen. The Beatles Rooftop concert on 30 January 1969 was their last public performance ever. This concert was unannounced and a fascinating effort between members of the band and others.
The episode list on here speaks for itself. Some of our favorite episodes: The Beatles Scandalous Stories; Snoop Dogg & Martha Stewart’s Friendship; and Stories of Musicians’ Bodyguards.
