Watching The Beatles sail away

1 April 2008 by Sam

Here’s the latest update from Tom McConnell, our work placement student, who in case you hadn’t noticed is a big fan of a certain Liverpool band!


Today I have been checking up on the music desk at the International Slavery Museum. This basically involved listening to many tunes on the desks and writing if it was working and to see if any improvements could be made to improve it for the benefit of the visitor… I particularly enjoyed “Sail Away” by Ray Charles but was disappointed that The Beatles had been taken off!!
