WTIX-FM Beatles Nights at Zephyr Field

Beatles Night August 2013

The Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Tribute Band got rained out for the Beatles Night in June of 2013, even though the rest of that Beatles Night went on as planned, so they returned on August 17.  WTIX-FM's Hot Rod Glenn and JD were there with contest winner Ricky Reese, who tossed out the ceremonial first pitch.  It's captured in the video below.  And the Zephyrs beat the Iowa Cubs, 3-0!
