FAB 4 FRIDAY — 6/27/14

Tonight, I DJed from 8pm-12am at The Greyhound Bar & Grill, cramming as many Beatles tracks as I could into a four hour set. It’s hard to sum up seven years of unmatchable greatness in four hours, and whittle down the 150 tracks I had pulled into 95 — so I shot for 1 hr. “early,” 1 hr. “mid,” and 2 hrs. “late.” This is what I ended up throwing down — 95% on vinyl, many of which on records I stole from my parents, or were part of the owner’s box set:
