“Is that the Beatles??!!”
The DJ didn’t say, but I just knew it was! And I sat in my rocking chair all day, staring at that radio, waiting to hear the song again... and I mean, ALL day....
When my best friend came over, I told her I couldn’t play because I needed to stay in and listen to the radio. She looked at me like I was crazy, then got mad and left.
But there I sat, rocking and listening to the radio until finally- FINALLY!!!- the song was played again and I got to hear it in it’s entirety.
The name of the song? “Yellow Submarine”
It was 1969, I had my very own radio and got to hear “my most favorite group in the whole wide world!” on MY radio... and it was Heaven.

(Thank you, Kimberly! Looks like a Motorola, can't readily identify the other, but I also have a couple of radios similar to those- great memory! Bud S.)
