If you'd like to experience what it was like to participate in a Beatles concert, we can't recommend 'The Beatles In Cleveland' strongly enough. --Bob Malik, host of the nationally syndicated radio show, 'The Beatle Years.'
This book is a must read for the fan who's never been witness to The Beatles concert mania first-hand, and even more important to anyone who's actually seen The Beatles live. As a broadcaster, I was impressed with Dave's research into the competitive world of 60's Top 40 Radio. What a fun book! --Joe Johnson, host of the nationally syndicated radio show, 'Beatle Brunch.'
Dave Schwensen did the impossible. Through his writing he took my mind from the California coastline to Cleveland and made me enjoy it. I was mainly skeptical that he could write a whole book about a single happening - the two Beatle concerts in said city and hold my interest. Not only did he accomplish both impossibilities, he totally drew me into the whole experience and gave me new insight into something I thought I knew something about. Good show, mate! --Ken Mansfield, Former U.S. Head of The Beatles' Apple Records.
