|Fest Fans Fun: Friends of Farnk|
[Posted by Dave Haber on Monday, 07/02/07 2:07 pm] [Full Blog] [Related Posts] [Tweet] [Facebook]
Jennifer and Carol are two fans that I met here at the Fest. They are the founding (and only) members of the Friends of Farnk fanclub.
Friends of Farnk is kind of a Beatles inside joke.
Frank Ifield is related to the Beatles because he was released on Vee Jay records in the US at the same time the Beatles were. Vee Jay actually released an album of Beatles and Frank Ifield songs put together, called The Beatles and Frank Ifield On Stage (there were no live recordings on the album).
However, one very early release of I Remember You by Frank Ifield on 45 by Vee Jay listed his name as "Farnk Ifield". Hence the inside joke.
Catch Jennifer or Carol at the Fest if you'd like to join Friends of Farnk!
