Beatles On Sullivan Fifty Years Ago!

We have talked about Beatle events from fifty years ago for the last two weeks on Those Were The Days.  This Saturday night we will share a few more moments.  Listeners have been sharing their memories about that black and white night 50th years ago Sunday.  The tv event inspired many young musicians to form a band.  This Sunday night on CBS you can watch a tribute from the Ed Sullivan Theatre which features many new artisits paying tribute as they preform Beatle songs.  Ringo and Paul will even play a few including:  Matchbox,  Boys,  Yellow Submarine, Magical Mystery Tour,  Birthday, Get Back, I Saw Her Standing There,  Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,  and With A Little Help From My Friends!  This will be better than the Super Bowl for me.  On WRCO FM 100.9 Saturday night (between 6 p and Midnight) you can hear a few Beatles classics and later in the night (when I get back from wrestling broadcasts) we will be taking your rock n' roll requests from the 50's through the 80's.  Get set for trivia questions that are guaranteed to start a few conversations.

Beatles vs Jesus

I was 12 1/2 yrs old when I saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. I remember my dad's dislike for them after George (I think) proclaimed they were better known than Jesus. I lived in Janesville, WI. at the time. I would go into Woolworths and see all kind of Beatles merchandise. I thought the long haired wigs were ridicoulis. I did buy a pair of boots like their's tho.
