    Two women in England were pleasantly surprised to receive a reply from Paul McCartney 50 years after sending him a fan message. Barbara Bezant and Lyn Phillips recorded a message on a reel-to-reel tape in 1963 and sent it to the Finsbury Park Astoria in London, where the Beatles were then playing, the BBC reports.
    "This dream is just to come round the back and see you, but I don't suppose that'll ever happen. But we can always live in hope, can't we?" said the message from the women who were 17 and 19 at the time.

    But the tape never made it to McCartney.
    Years later it was purchased by a local historian, David McDermott, at a flea market. Listening to the tape piqued his interest. "It was like sitting in a bubble and being there when these two girls were making this tape," he said. "The hairs on the back of my neck stood up and it made me wonder if these two were still with us."
    Turns out they were: the BBC magazine program The One Show found them and brought them back together for the first time in 40 years at The Beatles Story exhibition in Liverpool, where they received a reply from McCartney.
    "Hi Linda and Barbara, thanks very much for you lovely tape. It finally got through, better late than never," read the letter from the Beatle. "Great to hear that you found each other after all these years. Keep enjoying the music, love Paul."
