Today in music history

In 1964, the Beatles made their live U.S. television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. I Want to Hold Your Hand could barely be heard over the screams from the audience, who were also treated to All My Loving, Till There Was You, She Loves You and I Saw Her Standing There. There were 50,000 requests for the 725 available seats. The Beatles appeared on the show again a week later. Each program was watched by an estimated 70 million people.
