Was watching the documentary "Good Ol' Freda" about Freda Kelly, the Beatles' Fan Club secretary. She shared memories of knowing the Beatles' parents, and how she became friends with them and was the link between them and the Beatles when they were on tour, giving messages, and looking in on the parents for them while they were away. She also helped them with answering fan mail, etc.
She shared a memory of Paul's father, Jim. She called him "Uncle Jim." She always had Wednesday afternoons off, and she and Paul's father would go to the Bassnet (spelling?) Bar and order cheese and crackers and cured meats, and he educated her about the different varieties, and also about different types of wine and coffee, so she'd know about them for parties, etc. Then she'd get in a taxi and go home.
In this interview, she also shared an anecdote about calling Paul's father once, after certain rumors were circulating
There was an urban legend at the time that McCartney had died in 1966 and been replaced by a lookalike. Kelly received so many enquiries about this that the phone started ringing off the hook. "It really got to me," she says now. "I remember I rang Mr McCartney [Paul's father], who I called Uncle Jim, and I had to ask 'When are you seeing him next, when is Paul home?' and he was like: 'He was here last night!'"
Anyway, enjoyed hearing her share her memories. She was closest to Ringo's parents... Elsie, his mother, was like a mother to her, and she'd spend an entire evening with them every week.
She said she had to mind her Ps & Qs with John's Aunt Mimi, but once she got to her know her, she trusted her, and let her in through the front door, which she usually didn't do... most fans or people she didn't know well came in through the back door.
She also loved George's parents and spent time with them as well. George's father tried teaching her ballroom dancing but she said she was just too shy and would always laugh too much.
