Episode 65! Our 65th musical road trip in Th Way-Back Music Machine. This is an exciting trip and a Day In The Life for August 22.

A lot happened on this day.

In 1956, a rock idol/pioneer/icon begins filming his debut film performance. The film becomes a success, both with critics and fans.

Then in 1962, a fab band make their television debut in the city of Manchester, a hop, skip and a jump from Liverpool.

Next, in 1968, a famous drummer feels he has had enough and decides to leave the band for a short while. His break produces one of his best-loved songs.

Finally, we celebrate the life of a writer from the Brill Building, who passed away on August 22, 2011. He had an enormous connection to Elvis Presley.

All that, plus chart talk and great conversation between friends.

That is this week, on Episode 65 of The Way-Back Music Machine.
