1. In the 1960s at the tender age of fifteen, Susan Moore ran Saturday nights at one of the UK's most exciting venues, Nuneaton Co-op Hall. She managed gigs where bands like The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, The Hollies and The Rolling Stones performed. Her father, the pioneering music promoter Reg Calvert, not only launched the first British music events aimed specifically at teenagers but was also the first person in the country to nurture a stable of his own artists.
    Tragedy struck twice in Susan's own teenage years and here she speaks openly about the bad times as well as the good. This is a wonderfully evocative description of a bygone era and the people who made it so memorable.
