The British Invasion

Feb 10, 2014

It’s been 50 years since The Beatles first touched down on American soil to perform on The Ed Sullivan Show. The telecast is remembered as changing popular music and culture forever.

We look back at The Beatles and the British Invasion with Baltimore musician Gus Russo, author of "Boomer Days," and broadcaster Larry Kane, who traveled to every stop on the Beatles' 1964 and 1965 American tours. Kane is the author of "When They Were Boys: The True Story of The Beatles’ Rise to the Top."

This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show.
