Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed and released before the band's dissolution in April 1970, but most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began.

Abbey Road was an immediate commercial success and reached number one in the UK and US, although it initially received mixed reviews, with some critics describing its music as inauthentic and bemoaning the production's artificial effects. Over time, the album became viewed as among the Beatles' best and many critics have ranked it as one of the greatest albums of all time. In particular, George Harrison's contributions in "Something" and "Here Comes the Sun" are considered to be among the best songs that he wrote for the group.

I am officially old, I remember listening to those songs on vinyl and on AM radio because the only music that could be found on the FM band was classical when they came out.

I was just 9 months old, but the Beatles' Music has always resonated (pun intended) with me. 

BTW, Abbey Road was the first Beatles CD I bought, back in 1988.

Vinyl, AM radio and you spend time in front of the radio with the finger on the tape to make your own "Best of..."

And when they played finally the missing song, the presenter start talking into the last 10 seconds of the song.

Something kids today will never understand.

That was why you recorded off the college stations, they rarely talk over the music.

In Puerto Rico in the late 70's or early 80s' there was a DJ in a salsa music station that sang in unison with the song's last few seconds. 
Now, I wasn't then or now a Salsa music fan, but I found that quite annoying.

Never thought of that, learn something new every day. Here every school that has degrees for people entering careers involved with broadcasting has a radio station and some even have TV stations.
