Derek Taylor Recalls Early Beatle Appeal

Derek Taylor, KRLA Beat, 16 June 1965

(Editor's note: Last week Derek Taylor began the story of his association with the Beatles. He told of attending a concert in which he first heard and saw the four lads from Liverpool – before they were known to the adult population – and of the tremendous excitement they generated within the audience. This is part two of a three-part series).
