February 1964: The Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show"



A few years ago, I posted about the Beatles' first big hit in the US or 'I want to hold your hand".

It's hard to believe but it was over 50 years ago.

A few weeks later, Ed Sullivan introduced The Beatles to the largest TV audience in US history. (The broadcast drew an estimated 73 million viewers, at the time a record for an American television program...)

Everybody tuned in. It was like the Super Bowl of its time!

The girls tuned in to scream.

Boys like me just wanted to hear the music. Mark Goldblatt was one of those boys who tuned in!

The parents watched to see what their kids were so excited about.

Unfortunately, our family was not living in the US at the time.

I got to watch this on video years later.

It took my brother and I, a couple of pre-teens at the time, about 2 seconds to fall in love with the music of The Beatles.

It was a wonderful TV moment for those lucky enough to experience that Sunday night.

Have the time flown by so fast?
