According to the National Trust
On hearing of EMI's plan, listeners to the Chris Evans show on BBC Radio 2 and to BBC Radio Five live contacted the programmes to urge us to take on the property made famous by the Beatles' Abbey Road album. A possible role for the Trust was suggested on the radio when presenter Chris Evans and former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney both raised the prospect of support from the National Trust. Their proposition triggered an immediate reaction from listeners, with many emailing support for the idea. The public have also been adding their voice on Twitter.
Now the studio could have a value of anything between 10 and 30 million pounds.
It's not often that the public spontaneously suggests that we should acquire a famous building”,
said a National Trust spokesman
However, Abbey Road recording studios appear to be very dear to the nation’s heart - to the extent that we will take soundings as to whether a campaign is desirable or even feasible.
Uh I have to ask why? Because some records were made there? Lets ignore the musical virtues of the Beatles, I may understand if we were being asked to save there music for the nation (for some reason), what is the point of saving a studio?
Perhaps the public aren't aware that the zebra crossing isn't included!!
