Beatles Love Me Do Oldies 45

Early in my career, the radio in my ancient, bare-bones SUV could only pick up two FM stations’ broadcasts for the duration of my daily commute — one country, one oldies, with an emphasis on the mid-1950s through the 1960s. Because I didn’t want to lose my will to live during the 25-mile drive, I picked the oldies station. And it made me glad all over.
