Classic Liverpool

Tune in Tuesday for our exclusive streaming of the Beatles’ first-ever TV appearance on the “Saved by the Bell” show. The wildly popular TV series came to an end in 1989. And everyone knows the story of how the Fab Four — John, Paul, George and Ringo — found fame. “David Cassidy – Yr [sic]s Never Been: The Complete Analogue Edit” documents the final days of the late performer’s music career. In 1970, Cassidy was on top of the world, with Billboard’s number one album and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But with a changing music business landscape and the onset of MTV, he fell off the pop charts. This collection contains everything from his early recordings to concert footage that will certainly make you forget that there was ever a “Partridge Family.” For more information about the package, visit TuneIn.ca/Elvis: The Essential Elvis Costello.

Beach blankets and snacks

Looking for more summer music? Hit up Canada’s largest free beach concert series, which kicks off its third year on Friday, July 5, at the Bayfront Festival Marketplace on the shores of the Halifax Harbour. Grab a beach blanket and clear your Saturdays for this great musical lineup: seasoned veteran Bad Company, up-and-coming artists Shame and Angry BumbleBee, and hometown favorites Sarah McLachlan and The Hold Steady. While the free concert series will run every Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., there are also four-piece beach barbecues on location. The Bayfront Festival Marketplace is located at 2706 Adafruit Ave., near Halifax Naval Base. For more information about music and festival activities, visit the Bayfront’s website at www.bayfrontfestival.ca.

News week

Vulture Network is premiering the next episode of “Fortnite: Battle Royale” tonight at 7 p.m. EST. According to Vulture, the show is based on the popular video game of the same name, where an entire crew of competitors fight to the death over a large map of land. It is available only on Vevo and Hulu in the United States and Canada.

Leaving shows

You will no longer be able to watch the 30-year-old ABC series “Boy Meets World” as Netflix is now streaming the show’s complete first seven seasons. The streaming service just dropped episodes three through six this week, starting at the very beginning with season one. New episodes of the series will be released every Friday. And if you are in your ’90s, you can catch the Canadian cult comedy series “The Adventures of P.K.” today on Shomi.

Christmas viewing

There’s still plenty of time to wrap up your 2016 holiday viewing, including nostalgia nostalgia packages: the first-ever season of “Saved by the Bell: The College Years” airs on NBC. While “Saved by the Bell: The College Years” has only aired once, watch a clip of Seth Green’s character from the 1980s TV series “Doom Generation” as he tries to pursue a degree in English literature. My recommendation: sit back, relax and enjoy. For the complete list of holiday programming, visit NBC.com.

Your weekly song

Finally, a great new band releasing an EP today. British duo The Mavericks have recently added two new members to the band. The two new members are Spanish bassist Diego Peralta and American banjo player Joey Scurlock. As a result, the new EP features their version of The Beatles’ famous “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” with lyrical contributions from the BBC producer Mark Chapman.
