Paul McCartney's return to Seattle Friday for his highly anticipated Safeco Field show is stirring some embarrassing memories for iconic Seattle DJ and concert promoter Pat O'Day. O'Day was the program director and promoter of two Beatles shows at the old Seattle Coliseum (now KeyArena) on August 25, 1966. But several weeks before, he got a visit at KJR radio from a young woman who said she had to talk to him in private.

The woman told O'Day she was the assistant manager of a local answering service. "She said 'Pat here's what's going on. I have evidence Paul McCartney is going to get married to Jane Asher when the Beatles are here in Seattle.'" O'Day's interest was piqued. But he couldn't believe it, until the woman showed him some pretty compelling stuff.
