COME TOGETHER FOR THE MAGIC OF THE BEATLES
Your Practical Magic Podcast Interview with
iHeartRadio Q104.3 DJ, Ken Dashow
Premieres November 5, 2020
October 28, 2020 -- New York, NY -- iHeartRadio Q104.3 DJ, Ken Dashow, guest stars on the Your Practical Magic podcast (on iHeartRadio and everywhere you listen to your podcasts) to discuss the magic of the Beatles and how now, more than ever, they can help us “come together” and “imagine” unity. The episode premieres on Thursday, November 5, 2020 (just two days after Election Day).
The episode was inspired by a series of coincidences that began with Dulon Jones’ British GQ interview with Paul McCartney this past August, 2020, in which McCartney said, “People say, “Do you believe in magic?” And I say, “I’ve got to.” And I don’t mean, you know, Gandalf or wizardry or that sort of thing necessarily. For me, it’s how life can be magical, these things that just came together.
The article was read by native New Yorker and avid Beatles fan, Ken Dashow, who then shared this quote with his listeners during one of his afternoon shows on Q104.3. Gennifer Birnbach, co-host of Your Practical Magic, happened to hear that while following a detour in the road due to a fallen tree after a storm.
“What Paul McCartney was describing is so in line with what Your Practical Magic podcast is all about and the fact that Ken was sharing it at the very moment I was listening further supports this idea that we are all connected and there is something greater available to help us find meaning in these connections,” explained Birnbach.
Birnbach also shared how she and her co-host, Noreen O’Donnell, agreed this was the kind of message their listeners needed to hear when the country is so divided.
“Our mission at Your Practical Magic is to share myriad ways for our listeners to experience centeredness regardless of whatever chaos might be swirling around. For so many of us, the music and magic of the Beatles was one of our first healing and grounding experiences so sharing Ken’s insights and the synchronicities that brought this episode about was a treat to bring to our community, especially as we prepare for Election Day in America,” said Noreen O’Donnell, co-host of Your Practical Magic podcast.
Dashow is also the host of Breakfast with the Beatles Ken Dashow’s Beatles Revolution on iheartradio.com. For over 30 years, Dashow has interviewed hundreds of famous classic rock stars about the Beatles and, in this podcast episode, shares some fun tales from Ringo Starr, Donovan and Keith Richards.
Your Practical Magic is a real-talk podcast that combines humor and insight to what trips us up in everyday life. The co-hosts, Noreen O’Donnell and Gennifer Birnbach, are both native New Yorkers, former TV executives and energy-based healers. The show’s mission is to share practical tips and techniques to meet life's challenges with more grace, ease and joy!
