Listening to Archive Apr. 5th with my AP Studio art class and they’re loving it!
I’ll send you a shot of them at work if I can. Anyways, regarding Tomorrow Never Knows, a quirky phrase taken from Ringo during an interview, John found it hilarious. The replacement is from loops they each went home and experimented with. Paul along with a bunch of random other songs recorded seagulls. That’s what is most prominent.

Jeff Bell, thank you SO much for listening and for writing. Thrilled that your AP Studio art class loved the show along with you! Viva la radio! Perhaps one or more of your students may be interested in listening to–or even joining–the Blunt Youth Radio program on Monday evenings.
All the best to you and your students at WHS!

RDJ is ALWAYS good but it was REALLY good yesterday (7/12/17). Sent that ep to a couple people in hopes of getting them to start listening. You’re amazing! 🙂
