50 years ago: The Beach Boys at Millikan High School, Long Beach, California

This week we celebrated the 50th anniversary of my very first concert. It was a performance of the Beach Boys at my then-future alma mater, Millikan High School in Long Beach, California. The date was Friday March 2, 1962 and I was but seven years old and the guest of my dad. The Beach Boys played in the auditorium at Millikan High School. Tickets were fifty cents. (I still have the handbill poster promoting the concert.)
