The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum welcomes back local Beatles aficionado, Gary Baker, as he takes us on The Beatles’ final journey from the rooftop concert in January 1969, to the release of “Let It Be,” and the “official” breakup of the band in the spring of 1970. Join us on Facebook Live on Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. to enjoy rare audio and video footage, LPs, 45s, posters and advertisements as Baker shares the fascinating stories behind the most popular band in history.

Baker is well-known around the Coshocton area as a lover of all things Beatles. He has made multiple trips to both Liverpool and London to explore Beatles’ haunts such as the famous Cavern Club, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and Abbey Road. For the past two years he has been a special guest on WTNS-FM with host Mike Bechtol for shows on both the 50th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The White Album.

This special night is for everyone: The diehard Beatles fan, students of 1960s counterculture and young listeners just discovering the music of the most influential band in history.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St., Coshocton, OH 43812. Support for this program has been provided by Ohio Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the federal CARES Act of 2020. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday, noon to 4 p.m. Every Sunday offers free admission to Coshocton County residents.
