Fun, Personal and Fond Memories
Those are the things I look for in a Beatles podcast. And having been in Cha Chi’s company while I was in the music business in Boston, I wholeheartedly swim in with all my might when it comes to the sea surrounding the Beatles. Always loved Cha Chi’s infectious delivery and love for this music (and of course I miss you terribly from the wonderful days at BCN!) Continued success my Beatle-based colleague!
