In Episode 360 of Things We Said Today, Ken Michaels, Allan Kozinn and Darren DeVivo discuss the often-overlooked “Yellow Submarine” album and the 1999 “Yellow Submarine Songtrack” expanded remix. We also, in light of the delay in the release of “The Beatles: Get Back” DVD/Blu-ray, pass along Peter Jackson’s advice that we let Disney and Apple know that we want bonus material on such a release. Here are some relevant addresses, as well as a link to an online petition:
To email Disney: TWDS.Global.Communications@disney.com
To catch their attention on Twitter, include @DisneyPlus, @disney and @thebeatles in your Tweet. (Disney’s Facebook pages don’t allow for messages, public or private.)
In social media, use the hashtag #TheBeatlesGetBack.
To send Apple snail mail, write to Jeff Jones, Apple Corps, 27 Ovington Square, London, England SWW3 1JL.
