How did you find our website; Leave Comments:
Fridays rock on your station simply enjoy the BeatlesandBeyond show at 7 am as I go to work .The highlight of my day.Thanks Pete for bringing us a great show on Hamilton radio

Mark Reagin:
One thing I enjoy about the show is the comments and explanations or meanings behind the songs. Little interesting facts that hardly anyone knows. You know a lot of facts from talking to the artist who wrote them, and most of the time those facts are not found in books. So it's new and fresh. For example : where does the subtle shift in key appear on the song "And I love her" ? The Beatles did it so well, so clever, most listeners don't have a clue. In addition, every word you speak, the pronunciation in clear and distinct. I really enjoy the show Pete ! Each new show that airs is kinda like in the 60's....the anticipation of a new Beatles single ! What's he going to talk about now ?

Malcolm Glaysher: If you like Pete's wonderful show and what Beatles' fan wouldn't, then as well as listening in, come and try having a chat too. It's so fun and easy

Debbie Martin:
Awesome show & tribute for Bowie, Pete. Fun chat too

Eric Wiltsher:
Streaming services just done't get it. They do have a place, but not for me. I have a massive CD collection and if I want a CD I'll play it.
With Pete's show it does exactly what a streming service cannot hope to do - INFORM. People go to specialist shows not just for the music. They are interested in the subject matter. Sometimes then tell the presenter, by screaming at the radio, NO THEY DIDN'T - well that's there view. In most cases listeners will go'oh wow' or 'really'. Pete does this - he informs.
I'm not the biggest Beatles fan on the planet, I confess, but Pete makes a top notch radio show - so I listen, end of.... Further more, I have a queue of shows wanting to come on our station. Pete's show is there because of what he makes it. I also do a daft thing, I speak with our listeners. Near to us is a Belgium Chocolate Cafe - yeah I'm a sucker for hot chocolate. When we first aired Pete's show I asked what they thought - they actually thought he was from the BBC with his nice voice.

Thanks to you and your show Pete for being a big part of that. I turned 64 in October and for a die hard Beatles fan that is most significant.

Thank you again for ALL that you have contributed to this AMAZING event last Saturday April 20th at The Penny Lane Development Trust. We ALL had such a brilliant day with Judith for her book signing of ' Once Upon A Time In Liverpool ', together with all the wonderful visitors who came to join us and make it such a memorable day. This is one day that I will never forget. I'm sure that all of your listeners will understand when they listen to this programme. I was so enthralled when Julie told me all about the History of this remarkable Project. I congratulate them on all their very hard work. Thanks again Pete.

Flo Eskin: Love the show, Pete. Listening to podcast from 2-5 on toginet now. Great selections. Can't decide if I like the music more or listening to your voice. You've got a great Beatle voice - makes me long to Get Back to the Pool! I can guarantee you that a podcast of one of your shows will always be with me on one of my electronic gadgets so I can listen when the usual local drivel is on the radio. Keep up the good work.

Sean Mack Page: Ck out Pete's show fridays 10 am mountain on http://www.hamiltonradio.net here in the states! Thank you Toginet!!!!!!

Den Pugsley (The Overtures): Hi Pete,
Lovely to hear 'Forever England' on the show last night. As always, it's much appreciated that you remember to dig out the song whenever St. George's Day comes around! Hadn't heard the show in a while, but I was just reminded what a veritable bag of scrumptious liquorice allsorts your show always is (I really must take the time to tune in more often!!!) I had the evening to myself so I tuned in to Forest FM at 8pm. ..... when the show finally did kick off, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Some wonderful Beatles/solo/ Apple stuff that I hadn't heard for too long awhile. I particularly enjoyed the '60's sitar' segueway and I hadn't heard 'Soily' from Wings Over America for some years. (and of course, where else can you hear Yoko on the airwaves!?) By the time 'Forever England' made it's appearance, I'd kind of forgotten we were due to be on the programme...came as a shock when the opening bars struck up!
Thanks once again Pete. Incredible how far flung the show has become...it's an impressive list! You do a marvellous job on behalf of all the artistes you play...long live Beatles and Beyond! Hope to see you soon, Pete.
Kind regards, Den

Paul Dean: Great Enjoyable show Last night , inc ---- Julian Lennon , James McCartney , Yoko Ono, The Iveys, Jackie Lomax, - Great feature on The Sitar in Music, Beatles Norweigan Wood, The Rolling Stones,Traffic

Paul Dean YES Was a classic show tonight --recommended for sure

George Pass: more mary (hopkin), please!

Cathy Sarver : I'm an Apple Scruff (one of the girls George wrote the song about) and I listened to this show and was totally impressed. If you have any interest in The Beatles or LOVE them, you will LOVE this show!

From Jay Van, USA
When I happened upon Beatles and Beyond I found a veritable treasure trove of wonderful Beatles and Beatles related "stuff". I downloaded everything I could from iTunes and play it constantly..... Never gets old even after I have heard it several times. I enjoy listening to you and thank you for giving all of us Beatle fans this gift. Keep it up. All the best

From Rose Mills:
I love the show because it is a great hybrid of professional and cozy, with the added bonus that you are not some inaccessible, remote entity who goes through the motions. You reach out to fans and it's apparent that you adore what you do!

From Shari Kawai :
'... your style is unique and most interesting-- I admire how you speak as though you are talking to a friend in a pub or coffee-shop; no pretentious, run-of-the mill cracker box questions. After all, as listeners, we imagine ourselves sitting right there with you! You are superb at making that happen!'

Ron Griffiths. (The Iveys):
Listening to the piece on the Hopkin family , I was prompted on hearing Tony Visconti mentioned to ask if you were aware of his involvement with the Iveys ? Perhaps I even mentioned it when you were at mine ( old age you see ! ). Another thing I thought perhaps you could mention to the listeners was that most of the tracks you played were rough demo recordings made on the old Revox two tracker at 7 Park Avenue.
I shall listen to part two at the earliest opportunity and do my best to be a regular listener !
Your friend

Another great show. Thank you so very much, Pete. You put a lot of work in this show. That's the reason why it is so awesome. Thanks again. Love,

john cembala

Alan Hird
Just enjoying a great show on toginet, Saturday night Sunday morning. That was the first time I had heard the B side of Another Day didn't buy any singles in the seventies because I didn't have anything to play them on - only had a mono radio cassette recorder. The only recording of Another Day I have is on the All the Best album, on vinyl. The interview with Judith is certainly interesting.

Dave McComb, Quebec
NO Show is like it Pete " the time and work U have done for all " It don't get any better than your show !!! Thanks for the years " After a bad week this show always picks me up Love ya Bud Thanks so much pete

Brooke-Seattle, WA:
Pete~As you know, I've been unable till now to listen to your webcasts and so want to say thanks for sending me the 2 segments of your Harrison Tribute broadcast. It seems that most radio shows here (USA) have become a showcase for how terribly, terribly clever the DJs are (not) and I am so utterly bored that I find myself going back to my personal CDs, tapes, and vinyl. However, I listened to all you sent. Thanks for keeping it about the music. I'll be listening live today

Ralph Daryl Tanael Tiongco:
Just downloaded the show last Sunday and I wanna say thanks for playing my request! More power to you Pete and to Beatles and Beyond!

Nadia-Ana Nanoushkah:
it's nearly 11pm, my eyes are shutting down while i'm listening to d ..... i enjoyed the program, great show and you are a really good presenter, no doubt.

Trevor Townsend:

Jay Brian Kellyposted:
Great beatles show last night :D

Anne Gabrish:
Oh, Pete, you know fine well that I'm one of your biggest fans! xx If I am unable to listen to it on Sunday, I put on my headphones and listen to it at work, where the guy next to me has to tell me to stop tapping my foot and singing. Hey, when it's a George song, I sing! lol It really was a good show. Sounds like you're feeling better. And, again, thanks for playing my request! xx

Bev Lasckey:
Always remember it was you that got me listening and back into "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window" by Joe Cocker and never realised until listening to your show that it was written by Paul McCartney, cheers Pete
