A new record for attendance at one of my Beatles programs was set last night at the Franklin Public Library. Last year, 64 people attended a program at the Kenosha Public Library on 26 August 2013, a figure matched at the Guilford Free Library in Guilford Connecticut on January 15 of this year. But last night had 72 attendees - including a couple of die-hard Beatles fans who brought in some of their collectibles and set up a display at the entrance, and a guy who plays in the Beatles tribute band Liverpool '64.
The new record, however, is unlikely to stand for long as today's program is a repeat of "The Beatles: Band of the Sixties" at the Fremont Public Library (1170 N Midlothian Rd, Mundelein, IL), for which there are at least 95 registrations. I even noticed on their website that registrations are now at maximum (I assume for fire hazard legal reasons) and there is actually a waiting list!
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
