'Drivin' Along'

by Kevin Austin


A Saturday night in October 1962, theres a couple mid 20's, driving along in their automobile, probably to that very song by Chuck Berry, on their car radio, tuned to just over 2-6-0 on the medium waveband, The night is drawing in behind St Barnabas's Church at the end of the lane. In the rear-view mirror, a backwards glance at Penny Lane is in their eyes. The Big Three and Gerry and the Pacemakers tonight. Where once The Quarrymen played when they used to go as teenagers.
