Today you get a Beatles Bonus.
Five songs from their first ever performance ...
in the United States.
Ed Sullivan had a long running variety show ... that featured
all sorts of music ... comedy ... and other acts.
It was "the" Sunday Night show.
Those screaming girls you see ... no joke!
They were everywhere. Huge concerts at Dodger Stadium ...
Madison Square Gardens ... full of thousands of screaming teenage girls.
Most of the time you couldn't even hear the music. It didn't even matter.
I .... was one of them.
No ... I wasn't lucky enough to see them live ... but
I screamed and cried ... sitting in my living room that night ... watching
the Ed Sullivan Show ... with my next door neighbors.
I was so in love with Paul ... I just happy to watch him move.
My dad wouldn't let me watch at home ...
he thought they were rowdy long-hairs.
My how the look of music has changed.
But ... this night ... we girls were all screaming and swooning in
our living room.
A night I will never forget.
My favorite group of all times .... hands down.
to be continued ..... tomorrow.
