Sounds Familiar: 'Hey Jude'

Dave Beck

Ever since its first release people have been happily singing along to "Hey Jude" by the Beatles. On the radio, on 45 RPM vinyl records, or downloaded onto a smart phone, "Hey Jude" and its irresistible chorus of "nah nah nahs" has always connected with listeners and musicians. Amanda Wilde is the host of "The Swing Years and Beyond" here on KUOW. And she regularly brings us the stories of music that Sounds Familiar. Amanda says that the tradition of "Hey Jude" sing–alongs had its origins back in the summer of 1968. Amanda Wilde speaks with KUOW's Dave Beck.
