Six popular episodes that will be presented on New Year's Day include:
*The Beatles at the Beeb – Rare recordings made by the Fab Four for broadcast on various BBC programs, 1963-65.
*Broadway Rocks – Songs from Broadway plays given the rock and pop treatment. The lineup includes The Beatles, The Mamas & The Papas, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Chad & Jeremy, and more.
*Soul Sampler – Hits and rarities from Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Ben E. King, P.P. Arnold, Sam Cooke, The Flirtations, and more.
*No #1's for You – An impressive lineup of artists who never topped Billboard's Hot 100, including 14 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees.
*The 27 Club – Rock and Rollers who passed away at age 27. The usual names are here, like Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison, so are some not-so-familiar members.
*Potpourri, Part 2 – A variety of short subjects, like American bands with British names, record holders for chart futility, early covers of Jagger-Richards songs, and a shout out to the "Working Girls."
Rock and Roll 101 can be heard at http://www.sky7music.com on the Classic Hits and Awesome Variety channel. The music history show is carried by SKY 7 every Sunday at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. MST.
