At 2 PM, your humble blogger pays tribute to one of the most influential things in his life, The Beatles’s Yellow Submarine, or a special mixtape episode of Beatles Blast. For nearly the full hour I bring you songs featured in the classic animated movie, either in alternate versions by The Fab Four, or in cover versions by a variety of different artists. For good measure, I also toss in a few of Sir George Martin’s orchestral scroe tracks.
