Excited Canadian youngsters lined up for as long as 73 hours in the cold & rain for tickets to the Beatles concerts in Vancouver, Toronto & Montreal . The countdown to B-Day, the day the Fab Four would finally land in Canada, continued with mounting urgency all that spring & summer of 1964 . Rock 'n Roll radio stations across the country played almost nothing but their music . No act in entertainment history had ever equalled the impact of the Beatles - not Frank Sinatra , not even Elvis Presley when he exploded on the scene several years before . Even Canada's famed media guru Marshall McLuhan jumped on the bandwagon ; McLuhan said " There is about them, something that is new & radical. They really do speak with the authority of the electronic age " . This book Our Hearts Went Boom tells the story of the Beatles' invasion of Canada in a lively anecdotal narrative and through an evocative selection of memorabilia and photographs culled from archives throughout the country . Included are the reminiscences of Trudy Medcalf , then president of Canada's largest Beatles fan club ; Paul White , the Capitol Canada record executive who had the foresight to sign the group months before his counterparts in the U.S. did ; . Red Robinson , the fame Vancouver hall of fame radio personality who hosted the show at Empire Stadium . ( and who some fans dremember being told to ' get the f--- off the stage ' by an impatient John Lennon ) . Michelle Finney . the starlet from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation CBC , who interviewed the Beatles backstage in Toronto . and, of course, many of the fans who saw the Beatles concerts and who will never forget their adventures seeing the Liverpool lads . Rare and little-known history of the Beatles , including a very rare photo of John with Cynthian Lennon, who accompanied them on a trip to Toronto, anonymously, of course, and who wasn't even identified in the press photo , for fear John's fans would find out he was married and thus ruin the mystique . . A beautiful book about those magic days ; in excellent untouched condition .
