3GCRFM - Beatlemania
The local FM station, 3GCRFM, was having a fundraiser in support of the station. The theme was Beatlemania.
At the lunch room where I work, I noticed a sheet of paper with an envelope attached. It was for making donations to the station. I tracked down the man responsible and asked if they'd like some live music on the same theme. He replied that that would be good and gave me the contact number of Ken Thompson who has a lot to do with the station (Director, announcer, etc.)
I rang Ken and he was more than happy to have me perform some Beatle songs live to air. I needed to be at the station at 8:30 pm Saturday night.
Arrived a few minutes before and found the place buzzing with Beatles music. Not only the originals, but cover band material as well. Ralf Koss and Greg Hansford were hosting a 'Ringo half hour'. I just waited around until I was needed and ended up staying for about two hours.
My contributions was in two parts:
I had heard that Peter Calabro was going to perform in the afternoon, but was unable because the flu had laid him low. That's a pity as Peter does some rather interesting arrangements of songs.
