Welcome to the Magical Mystery Tour!!!
I am “Everybody’s Favorite Tour Guide!” , James D. Jones and it’s my job to take each and every single one of you through the Beatle Years and Beyond!
The Beatles and the music they made together have entertained and inspired countless generations! The music is timeless and ageless. From babies to grandparents, the music of the Beatles is magical and so very easy to sing along with, that we all know the words by heart.
The feelings that we feel from the Beatles music, is just a roller coaster of emotions. From the early days of Beatlemania to right up to the “break up”, the feelings mark happiness, love, inspiration, rebellion, freedom, sadness and a vast ocean of other feelings have been credited to the music of the Beatles.
Here at the Magical Mystery Tour, we embark on a journey through the Beatle Years and Beyond. The music and the personalities behind the music makes the trip all worth the while! The first hour of the show is dedicated to the Beatles. The big hits, the deeper album cuts, rarities, and live performances are our 1st destination. The second hour is all about the Solo Years of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. It is during the 2nd hour that I, through the magic of radio, reunite the Fab Four with their music. I take great care in segueing their Solo efforts as if the Beatles never broke up but rather instead stayed together making the music that played in the background of our lives. From time to time I even treat listeners to the “best seats in the house” to the concerts that never were with my “Beatles Fantasy Reunion Concerts” from blending the music from their solo years. It is for the listener truly a Magical experience! And if that wasn’t enough, I also take you Beyond the Beatles to their “inner circle” of artists and friends, thus the Beyond moments of our journey.
Let me introduce myself proper to you. I am “Everybody’s Favorite Tour Guide”, james d. jones.

The music though is just one part of the Beatles story. I take you on a more personal journey through the stories behind your favorite Beatle songs. The Beatles as individuals are yet another story to add to the picture and you hear it in their own words who they were, their thoughts and what they felt during the 60’s,70’s, 80’s, 90’s and beyond!
