that I did in the 60's,

like, you know,

an invite to a premiere,

you know, "Roy Orbison's

having a party

and we've managed

to get a few tickets,

do you want to

come to that Fre?"

And I'm like "Yeah, okay,

I'm on the next train!"

I left school

when I was sixteen,

and my first job was

at a firm called Prince's.

I was in

the middle of a typing pool,

which is rows of secretaries

just typing away.

The lads from

different levels of law

would come down

and give me work to do,

but most of my day was just

spent typing contracts,

typing letters...

it wasn't the most glamorous of jobs,

but I was a working woman now.

One day,

two guys from upstairs

came down and

came over to my desk

and just said "Come on Freda,

we're going to take you out for lunch. "

I didn't know where I was going,

and I ended up in The Cavern.

Now, I'd never been

to The Cavern before,

I didn't even know what I was going into,

because it was a cellar.

It had a unique smell:

there was no ventilation,

and sometimes the toilets overflowed,

and it was

opposite a fruit market,

so it was probably a mixture

of disinfectant,

rotten fruit, and sweat

all rolled into one.

There was three archways,

and in the middle archway

was wooden seats,

all different

types of wooden seats,

they weren't all in rows

and all the same.

There was a little

wooden stage at the back,

and The Beatles were playing on the stage

when I first walked in.

And I'd never experienced

anything like that...

it was everything about them,

it was just the way they dressed,

with all this leather gear,

they were larking about,

and dancing on stage,

and mucking about

with the audience,

and on top of everything else,

there was the music.

It was just unlike anything

I'd ever heard.

I was hooked.
