She adds, “I bought most of The Beatles’ vinyl albums with my allowance. I will always remember the day that my dad brought home The Beatles’ first album to me as a gift. He had to go to several stores to find it. Nowadays, my two children, Nikki and Craig, know well that any time they buy a Beatles’ item for me, such as a calendar or book, it will be especially appreciated and treasured.
“In 1993, I attended a Paul McCartney concert in Cincinnati. Paul sounded just as great then as he did in 1966. And at least at this particular concert, I could hear the music, and I could sing along. Even though I really wanted to scream like a teenager again.”
