Growing up in 60’s Liverpool, Freda Kelly was one of The Beatles earliest fans, watching the Fab Four perform far before international stardom. From there, she began work as manager Brian Epstein’s secretary and the rest is music history.

Freda shares her first-hand account of the rise and fall of The Beatles with Dane Neal and tells the tale of how she became “Good Ol’ Freda”.
