BEATLES RELATED OF FINE INTEREST
INVENTORY

DURING THE HEIGHT OF BEATLEMANIA, OTHER ARTISTS AND THEIR RECORD COMPANIES (INCLUDING CAPITOL RECORDS) JUMPED ON THE SO-CALLED 'BANDWAGON" AND ISSUED A SLEW OF BEATLES-RELATED DISCS AND COMPILATION ALBUMS CONTAINING SONGS BY THE GROUP. ALTHOUGH THESE RECORDS DID NOT SELL ANYWHERE NEAR THE NUMBER OF COPIES AS CAPITOL'S BEATLES RECORDS, SALES WERE OFTEN RESPECTABLE.

  MURRAY THE K
"1964 CHRISTMAS SHOW" PROGRAM

DECEMBER 25, 1964 TO JANUARY 3, 1965
BROOKLYN FOX THEATRE, NEW YORK

(ACTUAL IMAGES)

Murray Kaufman, professionally known as Murray the K, was an influential rock and roll impresario and disc jockey of the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's. Murray reached his peak of popularity in the mid-1960s when, as the top-rated 'WINS' radio host in New York City, he became an early and ardent supporter and friend of The Beatles. When the Beatles came to New York on February 7, 1964, Murray was the first DJ they welcomed into their circle, having heard about him and his Brooklyn Fox shows from American groups such as the Ronettes, WHO HAD met the Beatles in mid January 1964.

He came to be referred to as the "Fifth Beatle," a moniker he said he was given either by GEORGE Harrison during the train ride to the Beatles' first concert in Washington D.C. or by Ringo Starr at a press conference before that concert. (However, in "The Beatles: The First U.S. Visit" documentary, he is seen christening himself this in a phone conversation with the Beatles on the morning of their arrival in New York). He was invited to the set of "A Hard Day's Night" AND "HELP!" and made several treks to England during 1964, giving 'WINS' listeners more Beatle exclusives.

Throughout his New York radio career, Kaufman produced multi-racial rock 'n' roll shows three or four times a year, usually during the Easter school recess, the week before Labor Day, and between Christmas and New Year at the Brooklyn Fox Theater. Those shows featured the top performers of the era and introduced new acts, such as Dionne Warwick, The Shirelles, Chuck Jackson, The Zombies, Little Anthony & The Imperials, JUST TO NAME A FEW.

PRESENTED HERE IS AN ORIGINAL BROOKLYN FOX THEATRE 1964 "MURRAY THE K'S XMAS SHOW" PROGRAM IN BEAUTIFUL NEAR MINT CONDITION. THE 24 PAGE PROGRAM MEASURES 12" X 9", AND IS LOADED WITH PHOTOS OF THE CURRENT ACTS AND record company ADVERTISEMENTS. there are three "beatles related" pages of interest.
