1964: The Beatles met the country on The Ed Sullivan Show


As we follow the political events, we are reminded of a huge moment in pop music history. 

Ed Sullivan intoduced Elvis in 1956.   He presented The Beatles on this day in 1964.   According to a story that I read, Mr Sullivan was in London and saw the girls screaming.   He concluded correctly that American girls would scream too.   He told his team to get The Beatles on his show.

Around 8:12 pm ET, Paul McCartney sang "Close your eyes....." and Beatlemania was on.     All together, The Beatles performed twice that night and 73 million people watched them.
