Bruce "Cousin Brucie" Morrow, the King of Top 40 radio in New York for decades, will broadcast his popular SiriusXM radio show LIVE from The 2014 Fest For Beatles
Fans. Part of a three-day event taking place at Manhattan's Grand Hyatt Hotel, the Cousin Brucie show will air live on Saturday, February 8th, from 6:00PM - 9:00PM EST, and will feature interviews with many of the biggest names in pop music from the Beatles
Cousin Brucie has been a mainstay of New York hit radio for decades and has remained one of its most popular personalities. He has been a favorite on-air host on New York radio stations WINS, WABC-AM, WNBC-AM and at WCBS-FM. He has interviewed and spent time with The Beatles
when they came to America
in 1964 (when WABC was known as "W-A-Beatle-C") and served as the MC at the group's historic Shea Stadium concert in 1965.
In recent years, Brucie has found a new home and a national family of listeners at SiriusXM where he currently hosts two music programs. "Cruisin' with Cousin Brucie" airs twice weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays at 5 pm ET, and "Cousin Brucie's Rock 'n' Roll Party" is heard Saturday nights at 8 pm ET. Both shows are broadcast on SiriusXM '60s On 6, Channel 6. In addition, "Cousin Brucie Presents," heard once a month, features Brucie's in-depth conversations with rock 'n' roll icons as well as live performances of their hits.
One of the iconic artists Brucie will host on his live broadcast is Peter
Asher, who is a Special Guest Performer at The 2014 Fest For Beatles
Fans. As one half of the singing duo Peter
& Gordon, the three time Grammy winning Peter
Asher had 10 worldwide Top Ten hits between 1964 and 1967, several of which were written specially for them by Paul McCartney. Between 1968 and 1970 he ran the Beatles' music publishing company and was head of A&R at their Apple Records label, discovering and producing James
Taylor's debut album. Since 1970, Peter
has been one of the world's leading artist managers and record producers, working such superstars as James
Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Cher, Diana Ross, 10,000 Maniacs, Lyle Lovett, Graham Nash, Stevie Nicks, Boz Scaggs, Keith Richards, Jackson Browne
and Ringo Starr. At The Fest, Peter
and his band will be performing his "Musical Memoir of the '60s" show in two parts - Part One on Saturday, February 8th, and Part Two on Sunday, February 9th.
