Fan’s Taped Message To The Beatles Arrives 50 Years Late. Paul Replies.

Beatle's fans tape arrives 50 years late.

In 1963, Beatles’ fans Barbara Bezant and Lyn Phillips recorded a reel-to-reel taped message for the up and coming group from Liverpool. The recorded message is very sweet and includes things like the girls offering to bake cakes for members of the band, their concert experiences and trying to fill the tape.

It took 50 years but Paul McCartney finally received the tape. From Arbroath:

“Two women from Essex have received a reply from Sir Paul McCartney, half a century after trying to contact him. Barbara Bezant and Lyn Phillips recorded a message to The Beatles in 1963 and sent a tape to a London theatre where the band was playing. Decades later it turned up at a car boot sale and last week the women were reunited with the recording by BBC TV programme The One Show.

At the time of the recording, Barbara Bezant and Lyn Phillips were 17 and 19 respectively and both lived in Eltham, south London. They saw The Beatles at the Lewisham Odeon in December 1963 and recorded their message on a reel-to-reel tape recorder before posting it to the Finsbury Park Astoria, where the band were due to play.

The tape was bought at a car boot sale in Great Yarmouth by local historian David McDermott who listened to it. He said: ‘It was like sitting in a bubble and being there when these two girls were making this tape. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up and it made me wonder if these two were still with us.'”

Paul McCartney surprised the two women with a message:

“Hi Linda and Barbara, thanks very much for you lovely tape. It finally got through, better late than never. Keep enjoying the music, love Paul.”
