Paul McCartney Postpones NOLA Concert

Tonight on TV: NOLA Beatles Guru Turns in Hard Day's Night on 'History Detectives'


Proving once again that it's Antiques Roadshow's hipper little cousin, History Detectives returns to PBS tonight with an all-rock 'n roll lineup featuring Dylan, Zappa and the Beatles. The Fab Four's part of the bill will be helmed by New Orleanian Bruce Spizer, who also happens to be a raging Beatles expert. On the episode Spizer heads to Miami Beach to the hotel where the Beatles stayed for their famed Ed Sullivan Show appearance, and gets to the truth of whether a pair of autographs are the handiwork of some fool on a hill, or that of John Lennon and Ringo Starr. Read more at Spizer's prolific site.

In honor of this ever classy costumed occasion, here lies the soundtrack to blast while primping to dress and impress.
