On AUGUST 28th, 1965, THE BEATLES visited BALBOA STADIUM for their only SAN DIEGO concert. Thousands of SAN DIEGANS visited the stadium, and now, BCA Classic Hits XHPRS (105.7 THE WALRUS)/SAN DIEGO will relive the moment. "MASON in The Morning" and FRANK ANTHONY will recreate a "live" broadcast from the stadium backstage, and present a live BEATLES concert FRIDAY afternoon at 5.
"It really gives us the chance to use radio to it’s ultimate application -- create the theater-of-the-mind -- and give our listeners the fun and excitement that must have been in the air 44 years ago FRIDAY," said MASON and ANTHONY.
The concert features JOHN, PAUL, GEORGE and RINGO at the height of "Beatlemania" in the UNITED STATES with songs like "She Loves You," "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Help" and a dozen more. THE BEATLES toured the U.S. three times and visited SAN DIEGO after spending four days in HOLLYWOOD.
