Nobody has been more prepared for writing a book in retirement than Terry Crain! This ultimate Beatles fan is a rock and roll historian/researcher and Beatles author. His upcoming book, "NEMS and the Business of Selling Beatles Merchandise in the U.S. 1964-1966", covers officially licensed Beatles items in the U.S. between 1964-1966. His book will take readers through those items and other interesting side treks surrounding this era.
Additionally, Crain has an online radio station called 'faBgear radio,' which plays the 50's and 60's hits along with clips from oldies radio stations like KXOK (St. Louis), WLS (Chicago), KOMA (Oklahoma City), WRLA (Pasadena, CA), and WKNR (Detroit, MI).
He also designs Beatle-themed skills for Amazon's 'Alexa' device, which allows users to use their Echo or Alexa device to access information about the band. He has two free skills on the market which make it easier for Beatles/rock ‘n roll fans to follow the iconic band’s past calendar events. The “This Week in Beatles History” skill provides a summary of events during a 7-day period in the career of the Fab Four. The “Daily Beatle Facts” skill offers you a daily dose of Fab Four history by giving you an interesting fact about the Beatles every day. It is updated often with new information and trivia about the greatest band in the world!
And of course, he teaches online classes through his 'faBgear education' site through the TeachAble website. His first class is "Route 66", and soon two other courses will become available, one on "The Beatles" and one on "The History of Rock and Roll."
