Countdown: To the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show

Just 5 days before Valentine's Day in 1964 America fell in love with the Beatles.

(Spoiler alert for the haters…this will be a love fest.)

Beginning January 1, 2014, and for the next 39 days, I’ll explore this seminal moment and the overall significance of the Beatles in my life. Each of us experienced this moment differently. In today's parlance it was a true social experience - 73 million tuned in for what would later be deemed a momentous cultural event.

Please share your thoughts, comments and reminiscence.

For those of you on twitter, use #tweatles to share your memories. Let’s see if we can build some momentum. leading up to February 9th.
