Outside of the interview Robert talked about seeing The Beatles at the Indiana State Fair in Indianpolis on September 3, 1964.

The Fairgrounds concert was covered in the Fall 2002 issue of TRACES, the Magazine of Indiana and Midwestern History, published by the Indiana Historical Society. Betty Harris wrote the article, "'I Want to Hold Your Hand,' The Beatles at the Indiana State Fair."

Who else was there that day? J. Roberts Dailey of Muncie, later the Indiana Speaker of the House, took his children there to see the performance.

Out of curiosity, do you know if Dailey attended the afternoon or evening show? The afternoon shows was in the Coliseum and the hastily thrown together evening show was at the Fairgrounds race track. I was at the evening show.
