TV Legend Bob Eubanks Reflects on the Beatles Before VPAC Fab Faux Concert

Before he became one of the iconic game show hosts in TV history, Bob Eubanks attended CSUN and later was a successful rock concert promoter. One of his biggest and most memorable shows was the Beatles’ 1966 performance at Dodger Stadium, which he remembered in an interview with KCSN’s Les Perry on his weekly show dedicated to the Beatles. That legendary performance was reenacted by the Fab Faux in a high-energy, sold-out set at VPAC on Oct. 17.
