Jackie DeShannon’s biggest break came in February 1964 when she was an
opening act for The Beatles on their first US tour. She formed a band with slide
guitarist Ry Cooder, who briefly attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon.

DeShannon currently is an entertainment broadcast correspondent reporting
historical anecdotes and current Beatles band members’ news for Breakfast
with the Beatles on Sirius XM Satellite Radio on the weekends.
