sh!t. i won't be in town that weekend. i'm looking at this and i'm feeling sad. i used to go every year. terry as host was...still...is the best (morning drive radio dj of my fave radio station. and the most shameless beatle promoter in the northern hemisphere). and liverpool will always be the greatest beatle sound-a-like band i've ever heard.

thanks for the info.

but you made me sad. shame on you
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
