No music -- just wonderful Halloween things.

The Beatle story is still news. After it originally broke on Sunday, October 12, newspapers allover the country picked it up, it ran in Time Magazine, Phil Nye appeared on Channel 50 with a brief account of the story, and Phil also appeared via telephone on dozens of talk radio and television shows across the country.

The one hour documentary produced by John Small, Russ Gibb and Dan Carlisle of WKNR-FM was carried on more than 50 stations.

Russ Gibb flew to London over the weekend to get more facts on the story but at this writing he has not been able to contact Paul McCartney who reportedly is in Glasgow, Scotland and not available for interview.
