Beasley Media Group's WMGK-FM (Classic Rock 102.9) Philadelphia will broadcast its 1000th episode "Breakfast with the Beatles" on Sunday, September 26. It will include a special appearance by Ringo Starr. The program, hosted and produced by MGK veteran air talent Andre Gardner, has been on the air for the past two decades. The two-hour, weekly show does a deep dive into the music and behind the scenes moments of the most influential band in rock history.

This week's program will be expanded to four hours and air from 7 to 11am, to accommodate additional music, interviews including a call-in from Ringo Starr, and live phone calls from fans.

"Here I am, about to feature my 1000th Breakfast with The Beatles Sunday show, and what a ride it's been," said Gardner. "I've had the honor of interviewing Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Linda McCartney, Patti Boyd, Olivia Harrison, and a host of people who've been a part of The Beatles' world. I've world-premiered tracks from all four Beatles, both individually and collectively and, perhaps best of all, I've made so many wonderful friends along the way."

He added, "It's still such a joy to produce a new Breakfast with The Beatles every week, and I'm so grateful I passed the audition for 102.9 MGK."

"We call Andre our Baron of the Beatles for his boundless knowledge and passion," said WMGK Program director Bill Weston. "It's a joy to hear every week during Breakfast with the Beatles."
