Today in history in 1964 the Beatles played for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show.
I remember this so well. My Dad was very ill. Just a few months to his death - of course I had no idea of that. His bed was set up in the second living room.
I wanted to see the Beatles, but the TV was in the front living room and because the two rooms were next to each other my Dad couldn't be disturbed.
We had a little TV on a rolling TV cart. It wasn't as great as the standing model in the living room but it brought the new sensation right into our dining room.
I was mesmerized!
