Brandon Rummel – Why I love the Beatles

This is my Beatles story about my love of the Beatles and their music.  My name is Brandon Rummel.  I am 25 years old.  I have the privilege to volunteer each week at the KOOP Radio Show, “Off the Beatle Path”.  This introduction I programmed and recorded about my love of the Beatles and my Beatles journey.  Sometimes people have a hard time understanding me when I speak, but it doesn’t slow me down on my love for the Beatles and their music.  Because of this I use a software on IPAD to communicate name TD Compass.  Below is the recording from my IPAD.  I will tell you why I love the Beatles, play some of my favorite songs, describe my amazing trip to England to see all things Beatles in Liverpool and London and the night I met Ringo Starr.  Why do I love the Beatles music – because the Beatles and their music make me happy.

Here are some songs I included in the recording.

In My Life – My favorite song dedicated to my mom.  She brought the Beatles into my life.  The song is “In my Life” and has special meaning to me.  This version is sung by Johnny Cash.

Yellow Submarine – One of my favorites sung by Ringo written by Paul for Ringo.

With a Little Help from my Friends –  Ringo ends each concert with this song.

Yesterday  – One of the most recorded songs of all time and my mom’s favorite.  This is Willie Nelson singing.

All you Need is Love – Because I love the Beatles.
