RARE Beatles Interview! Houston, 1965.

This rare transcript is from the Beatles' 1965 press conference in Houston, Texas. San Antonio's KONO aired the interview, then mailed copies to anyone requesting a transcript. 10-year-old Patty took them up on their offer. 52 YEARS LATER, Patty found the transcript while Spring Cleaning and sent me a surprise copy! So. Without further ado I share it with you …

You wanna talk about blue balls? I planned this super awesome surprise birthday trip for my husband. And get this. HE DIDN'T WANT TO GO. For three whole months I snuck around planning. Scheming.

Day Tripper: A Beatlemaniac in Liverpool Day FOUR.

Where: Baltic Creative, Unit 51 When: 9:18 a.m. Drink: Cafe Mocha What a weird morning. This cafe came recommended but we had to walk through a long, desolate, industrial artspace to find it.

Day Tripper: A Beatlemaniac in Liverpool Day THREE.

Hey. This is Day 3. Don't start here. Go to day 1. 🙂 ****** Where: Kings Mill Dock Flats, Liverpool When: 8:38 a.m. Drink: Organic green tea (with honey). Really, I should be asleep. I sound like a toad with a trach. Not sure why. I mean we did shut down The Cavern 6 hours ago. …
