The Beatles in the News
Posted on February 21, 2015
Stumbled across a blog site that takes an interesting approach to Beatle history.
The Beatles in the News is just that – a site where multiple, random articles from across the decades and from all over the world are aggregated and re-published daily.
There are newspaper and magazine articles, concert reviews, TV news, and advertisements. It’s not only about the Beatles as a group but also as solo artists. Around 500 items from the past are uploaded every month.
One of the posts from January 23 this year caught our attention. It features – in full – a special colour supplement produced by the iconic Australian Women’s Weekly magazine in March, 1964 at the very height of Beatlemania:

With this site you never know from day-to-day just what gems might pop up.
For anyone interested in the Beatles The Beatles in the News ( thebeatlesinthenews.blogspot.com.au ) is well worth visiting regularly. You never know what you might find.
