When I found this homemade cassette in the Anniston, Alabama Goodwill Thrift Store, I knew I had to spend 50 cents for it. A music lover taped this radio broadcast of a syndicated special detailing the "Paul Is Dead" phenomenon off the air. The program probably dates from the late 70s, if the presence of Foreigner’s 1977 debut album on the tape’s b-side is anything to go by. Surely the program’s writers had tongue firmly in cheek when creating the script, which collects all the "death clues" which had been circulating since ‘69, and adds a few new ones to the mix. John Lennon’s assassination finally put a stop to this nonsense, but somehow it was a better time when we had to make up dead Beatles to obsess about.
