The Recording Academy and CBS announced yesterday that a two hour special is being planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute To The Beatles will air on February 9 at 8pm. How fortunate that February 9 half a century later falls on a Sunday, non?
Something like 75 million people watched The Beatles that night. Most consider it to be the first night of the British Invasion, a watershed moment in entertainment history. I worry sometimes that my two nephews and my niece, ages 15, 13, and 11, won’t have a Beatles song for every occasion that way so many of us do.
Today feels like an All My Loving day.
Close your eyes and I’ll kiss you
Tomorrow I’ll miss you
Have a great weekend!
