When I find myself in times of trouble I listen to some Beatles music.

Someone once asked me, “What is your all-time favorite Beatle song?” My answer was simple and precise, “Whatever's playing at the time.”

When I find myself in times of trouble I listen to some Beatles music.

Someone once asked me, “What is your all-time favorite Beatle song?” My answer was simple and precise, “Whatever's playing at the time.”

Well, until modern technology came along that answer was limited to certain times like when I was playing a Beatles CD or listening to my favorite Classic Rock and Roll radio station. Of course there are time restraints regarding listening to those CDs and the Classic Rock stations can only play a limited number of Beatles songs during their programming. Hey, there really are other artists out there!

Recently, I found myself in Beatles Heaven. Joyce and I recently bought a slightly used SUV (new to us). I was immediately amazed by all the amenities in which the vehicle came equipped. One of them was XM radio. I wasn't very familiar with XM radio except for commercials I had seen on TV and what my brother Mike had told me about it. He's the radio buff in the family.

While driving to church one Sunday morning, my son Cameron was pushing the buttons on the radio to see what stations were available and low and behold he discovered The Beatles Channel. Beatles music 24/8. Yes, I said 24/8. Haven't you heard “Eight Days a Week?”

The station not only plays their major hits from “I Want To Hold Your Hand” to “The Long and Winding Road,” but album cuts, songs from their solo albums, Beatles songs recorded by other artists as well as the original versions of The Fab Four's covers of other artists.

It's truly amazing what a musical catalog is available for this format. Of course, you hear repeats but that's all right, after all I listen to them over and over again on the stereo.

There's a lot of chatters and trivia that could be eliminated but sometimes you just have to take a little bad with a whole lot of good.

I listen to the channel going to and from work. During the limited time I have been listening to it, I have heard some unfamiliar tunes, including some songs that I didn't even know they had recorded.

Listening to The Beatles channel makes driving to and from work almost enjoyable, especially after “A Hard Day's Night.” Now, If I could find a way to get some of those inconsiderate road hogs of the city streets things would be even better.

Well, I guess for now it's time to just “Let It Be.”
