Hear all 7 of The Beatles Christmas messages, from 1963 to 1969. The first five years the messages were straight-forward, but by 1966, the messages became more intricate, like a goon-show performance with skits and bits of songs. In 1968-69, all four Beatles recorded their own messages, and they were cut together EMI's Abbey Road Studio. Cool piece: Listen 2 minute in to the 1965 message and hear John start to sing The Four Tops "It's the Same Old Song", as referenced on the December 17th, 2022 Beatle Brunch! Happy Christmas listeners!
