The article brought back a lot of memories. My family comes from the Hamburg area. When my German cousin wrote me of the Beatles I didn't think much of it. Then I saw them on Sullivan and it was fantastic. It was the first bright spot after the Kennedy assassination. And they were wonderful in person.

Oh man, one of my first memories is of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. My mom made of point of making me watch. I didn't think much about it either, but did a little 3 year old boogie dance for her, lol.

It's amazing how fresh their music still sounds today. On that note, the Beatles cover band, 1964:The Tribute, is pretty awesome especially considering that they must be in their 60s by now. I thought they were far better than the cover band, Rain. Rain was like watching the Beatles on TV. 1964: The Tribute is like seeing them live...

It Was 50 years ago today, tonight!

On Feb. 9, 1964, a little band called the Beatles performed for the first time on "Ed Sullivan." It was a "rilly big shew" ... when Paul and Ringo finally took the stage at the end of the night, those goosebumps only got, well, goosebumpier.

The NYT crossword puzzle today was all about the Beatles and their appearance on Ed Sullivan .
PS. I hope this is not a spoiler. The puzzle was rather easy by NYT standards.

Cynthia... by Julian



A woman who saw the Beatles in Milwaukee in 1964 gave me a "Beattles Booster" pin she bought at the show. I've had it hidden in an old sock for 25 years, and gasped when I saw it bouncing around in the dryer last week. Some of the paint washed off the back, but the lenticular printing survived: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/96264510757308336/
