For something a bit different this week, I bring you scans from a lovely volume compiling all the 1965 issues of BEAT, the newspaper of L.A.'s (then) fab radio station, KRLA. These articles and photos immediately transport the reader back to the first wave of the British Invasion, and allows us all to envision what it must have been like for teenagers living in a major U.S. city during that time. All the British acts' tours certainly had L.A. on their itineraries!
Click on the scans to enlarge them if you wish to read the articles. Enjoy!
