Thanks to those who joined SPR for the 50th Anniversary presentation of the Beatles Help! on Thursday, August 20 at 6:30pm at the Bing Crosby Theater.

Originally released July 29, 1965, Help! was the second feature film release by the Beatles following the success of A Hard Day's Night.  The film is a parody of the James Bond films while pitting the beloved rock stars against a couple of mad scientists and a cult.

Movies 101's Nathan Weinbender and KPBX music host/film buff Leonard Oakland host.

Update: This concert will air on KPBX Sunday, Sep. 6 at 2 p.m. 

Kids danced in front of the stage as the Old Time Fiddle Jam took place at the Bing Crosby Theater on July 17. Nacho Celtic's Carlos Alden hosted and organized the jam with fellow musicians Ted Hensold, John Sylte, and Judy Lundgren.

The Inland Northwest has rocked out to Tim "Too Slim" Langford's edgy blues for almost three decades. The rest of the world has discovered this band originally from Spokane, but Tim is still happy to come back with a special benefit concert for Spokane Public Radio. Langford's group, "Too Slim and the Taildraggers," performed a mix of acoustic blues at the Bing on Thursday, June 11.
