Kris Kristofferson, Nile Rodgers, Berry Gordy Remember Beatles Debut
- Tuesday, February 11, 2014

On Sunday CBS aired a tribute to arguably the most influential rock and roll band of all time, titled The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles. That night, of course, was February 9, 1964, when the Beatles made their debut appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

During GRAMMY week, Radio.com caught up with music icons who were around when the Fab Four hit our shores for the first time, some of whom were parked in front of the TV the night of the original broadcast. Here's what they told us about their impressions of that night, and the Beatles' role in the changing tides of popular culture. Motown Records founder Berry Gordy: "I certainly saw them [perform] many, many times! Their impact on me was very big! First of all, they did three of our songs on their second album, so I loved them after that. Recently, Paul McCartney came to the Motown Museum, and refurbished an old piano we had." [Note: 1963's With The Beatles featured "Please Mr. Postman," "You Really Got A Hold On Me" and "Money (That's What I Want)."]

This photographer's editors thought The Beatles were a 'fad'
- Tuesday, February 11, 2014

On a frigid February night 50 years ago, a cavernous sports arena in Washington D.C. became sacred ground. Two days before, the Beatles had performed on the “Ed Sullivan Show,” inaugurating one of the most frenzied, hysterical fan phenomena of all time. Then the foursome hopped a train to Washington, D.C., for their first live concert in America.

- Tuesday, February 11, 2014

Today, the Beatles hold an exalted place in the history of rock 'n' roll. But 50 years ago, when they first crossed the Atlantic to perform in the United States, the reaction was decidedly mixed. Here is a sampling of what the critics were saying.

 The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today :

The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Sunday, February 16, 1964

Deauville Hotel, Miami Beach, USA

The Beatle's second live appearance on The Ed Sulllivan Show took place during this evening (8:00-9:00 pm, EST) before a 3,500 audience at the Deauville Hotel in Miami Beach. Surprisingly, the Beatles did not top the bill on this occasion, that honour going to Mitzi Gaynor. Nonetheless, an estimated 70 million people viewed, in 22,445,000 homes - and it certainly wasn't because of Gaynormania. Another guest on the show was Myra Cohen.

A full dress-rehearsal beginning at 2:00 pm (also taped, but not broadcast) preceded the live TV transmission; in both this and the broadcast the Beatles performed "She Loves You", "This Boy", "All My Loving", "I Saw Her Standing There", "From Me To You" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand". This edition of The Ed Sullivan Show was repeated on Sunday, September 20, 1964 (8:00-9:00 pm, EST).

Following several more days of "rest", the Beatles flew home to England from Miami, via a short stopover in New York, arriving at London Airport at 8:10 am (half an hour later than scheduled) on Saturday, February 22nd.
