In case you missed the Night That Changed America grammy Salute To the Beatles last night on CBS on the 50th Anniversary of The Beatles' first Ed Sullivan Show appearance, here are a few moments going back to that time from the special last night.
David Letterman takes Paul and Ringo on his set which is really the old Ed Sullivan theatre where the Beatles played that night to get their recollections of that day.
Some insights from one of the people on Ed Sullivan's staff on that day and his part in dress rehearsal that afternoon.
I've been in radio since 1981, starting on Cape Cod, and in Boston, Massachusetts where I grew up. (when The Sox and Patriots both broke everyone's hearts, and the Celtics ruled. Funny how things change.)
After 3 years in Las Vegas in the late 80's, early 90's I was looking for work and luckily found myself here in Cleveland in 1991, through some mutual radio friends. I got to play the hits as Jammin 92's Night guy until 1999, and met Britney Spears back when she wasn't making people gag.
After watching my former company screw up the Jammin' Oldies thing for a couple of years, I came to Majic in 2001, the best decision I ever made!
