The Beatles Get Back 2
It’s been a long time since we’ve been totally, jaw-droppingly surprised by any “new” Beatles anything, but judging by the preview released by Peter Jackson on Monday, “Get Back” is the rest of the story. It’s like finding a box of old photographs that shows your mom & dad when they were young & really madly in love each other, or discovering a new watering hole hidden from sight for years....

Imagine: John Lennon's 80th Birthday!
“We honour John Lennon as the composer of an entire library of great songs, and we mourn him as an emblematic martyr to the darker side of contemporary celebrity culture… John Lennon was a profoundly flawed human being in any number of ways, but, damaged as he was, his greatest gift was his ability to speak so directly to our dreams.”       Charles Shaar Murray

Hey Boomer! The Credibility Gap
What's happened to good taste? Apparently, television doesn't care. It's not enough to portray the modern home life anymore, Sitcoms have to be as raunchy and in-your-face as possible, even the titles! Gone are the days of I Love Lucy and Ozzy & Harriet, and it seems like that's going to be the way it stays. In this week's episode I'm ranting a little bit about the degradation of entertainment in title & content. So feel free to join me!

Happy New Year - 1970!
It was 50 years ago today, and boy was it a year. The start of a new decade is always a nervous and exciting time, as a lot can happen in 10 years, or is it just another day? In our first episode for 2020, I'm taking a look back at the year 1970. The Beatles 'Let It Be' and broke up, followed by the 1st of the their solo albums and the subsequent questions of, "Where do we go from here?" without them?  The floodgates that the Beatles opened in the early sixties for new bands exploded in several directions in 1970. The new decade in music proved not to be a disappointment, but an even bigger influence on modern culture! Join me as we see how it started, won't you? There is much more to discuss, more anniversaries coming up this year, and we'll try to cover more of the 1970's in 2020!

"Do You Remember: The 5th of November?" Remember - John Lennon (off Plastic Ono Band)
Do you remember the 5th day of November? Well you should! John Lennon told you to Remember in his 1970 release of the song on the Plastic Ono Band album, the album with two different covers. Something that always puzzled me is: Why? What happened on the 5th of the November? And why does the song end with a crescendo in the form of a violent explosion? And why are there two different covers? Well the answer was absolutely fascinating! I first tried to find out if any famous people had birthdays, but nothing stuck out. That was until an article popped up on my personal feed a few years ago. It talked all about a very specific holiday from across the pond, and why Lennon told us to remember it!  So join me in this week’s episode of Full Circle Analog as I cover some other reasons to remember the 5th of November, as well as the big one!

What Makes a Hero Super?
Alec has a solo episode this week, talking about a subject that is near and dear to him: The Marvel Cinematic Universe. As requested by Brad, Alec tries to explain why Superheroes are important, and how they've transitioned over the years into telling more human stories, in spite of their superhuman qualities. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sees 22 movies and dozens of characters fight various villains, including themselves. This is a stark contrast to the original Batman cartoon, featuring Adam West, which was altogether silly and light-hearted; to The Dark Knight, which deals with Anarchy and Order, as well as insanity and sanity.  Let us know how you like this episode by sending us a message over at fb.me/FCAnalog Find more of us at odnws.com Thanks for listening!

A Little More Personal
 Brad's life is much like many. College panned out a little differently than expected, but a thriving business passed down by his future-wife's family kept him afloat while trying to find his way in the world. Eventually leading him to start a business of his own after being a victim of the economic crash of 2008. This business has echoes of all of the things that Brad wanted to do in college and life in general. You'd be surprised how much you learn about people when they bring your their old analog technology... This episode features Brad alone, talking in-depth about his history growing in the musical renaissance of the 1960's, and how that affected who he is today. Get to know Brad a lot better by tuning in to this week's podcast episode.

Rocketman: Musings of Rock in the Modern Age; Plus a Review of the Movie From Brad & Alec!
 This week on Full Circle Analog Brad muses for a while about the history of Rock-n-Roll music, as well as its place in the modern world in advertisements. He also covers the recent biopics (movies that are like documentaries) revolving around famous musicians such as Elton John, Queen, and others.  After this, Brad and Alec sat down to record a review of the movie Rocketman, which is the currently premiering biopic of Elton John. They cover the movie (with some tiny spoilers) and both give their rating! The review begins at 13:53 if you would like to skip right to it. *A quick note: the general consensus from us is that you should not take children to see Rocketman. It contains some heavy adult themes that aren't suitable for young audiences.

Analog Recollections of Record Stores, The Beatles, & More...
Episode 1  This first episode is just me sitting down in front of the mic and chatting about my history in the 60s and beyond. I'm starting off short and sweet in order to get a feel for running a podcast, as well as to ease you in to this new format.
