The Keener Podcast – Best of Vol 2 – The Paul McCartney Death Rumor

One of the most famous Keener moments was the Sunday afternoon in 1969 when WKNR-FM’s Russ Gibb amplified the rumor that Paul McCartney was dead. In this second “Best of” Podcast, we celebrate our interview with Andru Reeve, the man who wrote the definitive book “Turn Me On Dead Man: The Beatles and the Paul McCartney Death Hoax.” It became our most downloaded program. While the story had been well worn before Tom Zarski called Uncle Russ that October day, it was WKNR-FM’s coverage that rocketed the tale to the front of the nation’s consciousness.
