We recorded the Friends of Jane forum held at the House of Blues Cleveland prior to the concert on September 15th, 2014, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first performance in Cleveland, and Jane Scott's first assignment on the music beat for the Plain Dealer. Former DJ Billy Bass, Artist Manager David Spero, the Plain Dealer's Michael Heaton, Cleveland music legend Michael Stanley and Dawn Kendrick of 19 Action news all shared stories about Jane. And 11th Hour host Tom Kelly, acting as moderator, went into the audience to capture memories from others in attendance as well.
The event was meant not only to celebrate the anniversary, but also to raise funds for a documentary about Jane and her storied career.
The forum preceded the concert, featuring the band Beau Coup, Michael Stanley, and the Beatles tribute band 1964. At the end of the forum two members of the band, who play John Lennon and Paul McCartney make a brief appearance.
