• Al Sussman

    Fest Favorite/Author 'Changin Times'

    Al Sussman’s first book, Changin’ Times: 101 Days That Shaped a Generation, November 22, 1963 – March 1, 1964, is a portrait of an unforgettable time in American history. It is more of a history book than a Beatles book, but the British Invasion is key to the story – especially the Beatles. Al is a friend and part of our staff since the first FEST in 1974. We know each other since 1971, when we worked at the Sam Goody Record Store in Paramus, NJ.  Al assists Tom in the Beatles Trivia and Name That Tune Competitions.  Al, a longtime executive editor for Beatlefan Magazine will also host some of the always fascinating Panel Discussions.
