Calendar Correction: Beatles

A heads-up for DJ's preparing their shows for the next week...

You will see several stories that on February 1, the Beatles began recording the title song from Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.  Some websites claim that the Beatles came up with the concept idea of the album after recording it and decided to name the album after the song.  According to the book All We Are Saying by David Sheff, John Lennon said in an interview that the idea for Sgt. Pepper's came  when the Beatles visited the United States for the final time.  According to Lennon, Paul McCartney was struck by the interesting names of U.S. groups, and in November of 1966, on a flight from Nairobi to England, McCartney came up with the idea for an alter-ego for the band.
