    My God, it’s Brian’s wet dream!

    Vivian Stanshall will now sing Shirt…
    (Too tall for Royalty…too red for bellhops)

  4. Lizzie says:

    Wow! I’ve never seen anything from this day before… Waiting for the pros on this page to let us know when/where.

  5. mcarp555 says:

    Must be backstage somewhere on the ’66 tour.

    they have to be local DJs…

    New stuff always seems but then never seems to surprise me anymore! Another revelation

    Ugh, I have to say, a lot of the 1966 tour outfits really disturbs the Edith Head in me.

    Those light colored pants matched with the light coloured jackets gives me the vapors. They should have had black trousers at the very least with those jackets.

    Those shirts are….ummm…interesting. 😉

    Doesn’t anyone understand? As usual, The Beatles were leaders. THIS was the start of Flower Power!

  11. Tammy says:

    I understand that matching pale coloured jackets and pants is a crime against fashion :-)

    Death Cab For Lizzie?
    Vivian Stanshall will now sing Trouser Press
    (for John mainly)

  13. Lizzie says:

    I have no idea what you’re talking about, my dear Kwai…

  14. Kwai Chang says:

    @Lizzie…
    The Bonzo Dog Band (MMT) has a song called Shirt…and one called Trouser Press. In MMT the band sang Death Cab For Cutie (from their first album, Gorilla) during the nightclub scene. Vivian Stanshall is the singer. Trouser Press is about tight pants…or in John’s case…lumpy trousers. The song Shirt is about shirts.

  15. Looks like the “Good Guys” DJ’s for NYC’s WMCA prior to the 1966 Shea Stadium show.

    I don’t know why my comment isn’t coming through—it is Washington DC

  17. Lizzie says:

    Thank you Kwai! I am so overwhelmed with this book thing I barely remember my own name… (Didn’t John say “my name’s Betty”on AHDN?). Of course I’ve seen MMT many times and should have remembered!

    But….who are those guys?..support instrumental band types,ability over looks,”glasses”looks over pleased,and “eyebrows”looks menacing..in this image size anyway.

  19. I have some information about the picture on your website of the DJs backstage with the Beatles in DC in 1966. That picture is from my father’s personal collection. The jocks were from WEAM radio in DC. My father is the one in the back row between Ringo and George. He used the name “Russ Wheeler” on WEAM, but he is better known as “Robert C. Allen, III” from his time at WCAO radio in Baltimore.

  20. This picture is from my father’s private collection. My dad is the DJ standing between Ringo and George. He worked at WEAM in Washington, D.C. and used the name Russ Wheeler on the air. The picture was taken back stage at the August 15, 1966 concert at DC Stadium.
