Themed radio programs...There's no denying that's what "Only A Cover Song" is! And, any dolt can do one! Shows with songs about "Money", "The Sun", "Glass", "Dogs" and "Cars" for example... Who can't name songs about one of these subjects? And although "Only A Cover Song" has based entire shows around these themes, there have also been episodes where we dig deep to find some completely obscure topic! For example, episode #52 dealt with an obscure movie called "That'll Be The Day"... a movie about life in the late '50s/early '60s that Ringo Starr was in! Well... That's not the only film Ringo has been in! Ringo was also in the 1978 disaster, "Sextette"! A bomb that also featured pop stars Keith Moon, Alice Cooper and Van McCoy! Plus, it was aging sex kitten Mae West's last film! Want to hear all about this weird bit of cinema? Then tune in Sunday, October 22nd at 8am PST / 11am EST at www.beatlesarama.com for the "Sextette" episode of "Only A Cover Song"!
