The Record Store Day Podcast with Paul Myers

Jun 4, 2024

Getting Ringo Starr don't come easy, but we did it! Ringo is here to chat about his new Crooked Boy EP (written and produced by Linda Perry), while also sharing some Beatles memories about the Get Back / Let It Be documentaries, his love of Country music and why he'll still be touring on his 84th birthday.

We also brought in Abe Laboriel, Jr., who for the last 23 years as drummer in the Paul McCartney band, has been playing many of the ingenious drum parts first created by Ringo.

And I Saw Them Standing There author Debbie Gendler talks about being one of only 728 audience members in the theater when the Beatles made their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show, and working with Brian Epstein as one of the first American Beatles fan club presidents.

And RSD co-founder Carrie Colliton remembers Plan 9 Records fixture and Richmond VA punk musician Bob Schick (from Honor Role).

The Record Store Day Podcast is a weekly music chat show written, produced, engineered and hosted by Paul Myers, who also composed the theme music and selected interstitial music. 

Special thanks to Bob Hunt for expert audio assistance with this week's Ringo segment.
