As a little kid, I would sing these songs on the radio.  Two minute little ditties, that had swing and joy in them.  Now, when I hear Eight Days A Week I go looking for my baby girl.  We like to sing, clap hands, and dance to this one.  She’s 16 now and we’ve been doing this her whole life.  She is a TRUE Beatles fan.

When she turned 10, I took her to see a Beatles tribute band playing at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood.  We walked over to the Capitol Records Building and looked through the doors after hours.  I also snapped her picture kneeling next to John Lennon’s star on the Walk Of Fame.  Later I submitted that photo to our local paper which had a feature celebrating reader’s birthdays. They published it; the Biggest Little Beatles Fan in our town!
