In Episode #3 of the highly popular Kit and Kaboodle show, Beatles/rock music critic, Dr. Kit O'Toole and Jude Southerland Kessler, author of The John Lennon Series (http://www.johnlennonseries.com) discuss why The Beatles failed The Decca Audition on New Year's Day 1962. Kit will consider each song the Fab Four played - the strengths and weaknesses, and Kaboodle (Jude) will analyze the physchological/personality factors that entered into the mix that wintry day in London. The Beatles were rejected by Decca...but why? Could things have ended differently? And whose fault was it that the lads walked awy empty-handed? That's tonight's topic.
