Day 139/365 And The Band Begins to Play....

Recognize this?

It's from 1968, an obscure little piece of anti-war movement memorabilia.

Yep, Yellow Submarine's for Peace.

And our four fearless leaders?


41 years ago, the band began to play - helping Captain Fred vanquishing Blue Meanies and Apple Bonkers, while posing as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (we hope that you enjoy the show).

I adore this movie. It's one of the few that translated out of the Sixties and it's altered state of mind.

Plus it gave Ringo a great song to sing, and sent me off on a major infatuation with drummers.

Happy Birthday Ritchie - it's been a long,strange trip and I never would have made it without you!

Just for fun, here's a Yellow Sub quiz:

(I was John, the smart, funny one....)
