Beatles Brian Epstein Chubby Checker Bobby Vinton Brenda Lee Signed WHB Radio Top 40 Playlist John Lennon George Harrison Paul McCartney Ringo Starr Autograph
Product DescriptionThis is a top 40 survey playlist from Kansas City radio station WHB for the week of April 10 1964. It has been signed by a number of artists featured on the list, including the Beatles John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison), Brian Epstein, Bobby Vinton, Chubby Checker and Brenda Lee. On this top 40 survey, the Beatles held the #1 and #2 spots, 5 of the top 10 spots, and 9 overall in the top 40. Items signed by the Beatles and Brian Epstein together are very rare. This was signed by the Beatles in mid September 1964, when they played the Municipal Stadium there. They were to have an off day on their tour at that time, but Charles Finley coaxed them to fly in and play in kansas City by offering them $150,000 for the show, Their going rate at the time was about $25,000 per gig. There is some creasing, as the surveys had been folded and stored together for decades, otherwise in good shape. This is from the estate of Dan (Oberholtz) Diamond, a prominent Kansas City area DJ for decades. Besides his many years as a DJ and interviewing most of the top musical acts of his time, Dan was also known for his vast personal record collection. I have 16 such playlists, featuring ther signatures of some of the top musical acts of the sixties. I will be gradually offering them here. I will be glad to send scans of any of them for further contextual provenance.
