Boston WBCN-FM 104.1 1969/09/22   By unusual means, WBCN managed to get hold of an acetate of what was thought to be the "final" version of what became the Beatles' "Let It Be" album.  The track order is different, the mixes are different, and some tracks were not included in the eventual Let It Be album.  The original broadcast had the two sides reversed, but it has been re-edited here to run them in proper order. 43 None
