For me,it was back in early 60's, i was very much a new Beatles' fan. I remember their first hit record, actually both sides of the 45 were hits. My father took me down to the record store, and knowing how much i loved this group, and i was only about 14 yrs of age, well anyway dad bought the record "She Loves You" flip side being " I Wanna Hold Your Hand" for me. I must have played that record at least thousand times! Never forgot that time, but now to this day, i'm not really sure which of my siblings has that record. But, at least i have my memories of this time on my life, and even now, being a zoomer, i still get a thrill when i hear these songs on the oldies station. And, i often think of this time in my life when dad bought me my first record.
hey.........first album....very early sixties and I won it from a radio station in Hamilton...CKOC....what a thrill.....the Four Seasons.......Ain't that a Shame......such a goofy album, but yes I played it over and over...driving my family krazy! such a fun time!

My memories start when I was very young. I remember hearing two songs at a Grade 8 dance which I loved then and still think of now. The first was Marie and I don't know who sang it, and the second was Rags to Riches by Tony Bennett, who is still belting them out. I didn't really like Elvis at first but liked his later records when he was in Las Vegas and still do to this day. I just heard Imagine by John Lennon on the radio recently and realized once again his remarkable talent. Other than that, I wasn't really a Beetles fan.
