45 years ago today…

The Beatles “conquered” America when they performed on the Ed Sullivan Show to an estimated 73 million viewers.

Entire books have been written about the cultural significance of this event. Even people like me that were born nearly a decade after the event know (at least intellectually) how important it was. I am not going to try to rehash all that. But it didn’t seem right to let this day pass without at least mentioning it.
