Reeling in the years - 1964

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:20 pm on 16 June 2009

In June of 1964 the Beatles paid us a visit. They had just finished their first American tour, making three appearances on the Ed Sullivan TV show in as many weeks, and playing to sold out concert halls where screaming fans and poor amplification ensured that nothing could be heard. It was much the same story during their only ever tour here.
