It was 50 years ago today (almost) that this mop-topped band began to play (in America).
The Beatles made their first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show," America's must-see weekly variety show, on Sunday, Feb. 9, 1964. And officially kicked off Beatlemania on this side of the pond.
More than 70 million viewers were tuned to the program, airing live from the Manhattan studio now housing the "Late Show With David Letterman."
I was one of them. I had only seen a small article about them, had heard the song a few times, but I screamed like everyone else when they came on screen.
My Beatle was Ringo, Diane's was Paul, Elena's was John and Mary's was George. We were in fan girl heaven.
