Today, being the 20th day of the month, is the day I send out my free email newsletter.
Inspired by popular interest, I began this free monthly email newsletter in March 2014, when I sent that initial issue to 6 people. Little by little, it's grown to the point where this morning's newsletter was sent to 982 recipients.
Each newsletter details my schedule for the remainder of the current month through the end of the next month - which presentation I'm giving, where, and when. Here is this month's newsletter in PDF form:
Anybody with a valid email address may register for the newsletter on my website: http://www.aaronkrerowicz.com/newsletter-sign-up.html. Just be sure to type the “prove you are human” part. (I get a lot of spam, so any submissions that skip that step are deleted.)
Newsletter subscription is the best way to stay in touch. The emails are sent from my personal Gmail account, which allows recipients to respond easily and efficiently. This permits me to maintain a monthly dialog with Beatles fans across the globe.
Plus, they feature adorable puppy pictures. In honor of my pooch, Abbey (as in Road), I started including a photo of her in each newsletter beginning in 2016. Here's February's, practicing her camouflage:
Meanwhile, my first tour of the new year continues tomorrow at the Cape Girardeau library with the debut of a new presentation:
Saturday, 21 January 2017, 2:00-3:30 p.m.
Cape Girardeau Public Library, 711 N. Clark St., Cape Girardeau, MO
Songs the Beatles Gave Away
In addition to writing their own music, both John Lennon and Paul McCartney also regularly penned songs for other recording artists, including Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, Peter and Gordon, The Rolling Stones, Badfinger, and others. This 90-minute multimedia program considers all 26 such giveaways, comparing and contrasting them to recordings actually done by the Beatles.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
