The Beatles In America - 1964: On Wyoming Public Radio

The Beatles in America - 1964 on Wyoming Public Radio

  • Friday Feb 7 at 11am
  • Sunday Feb 9 at 2pm (repeat)

Celebrate the British Invasion and the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles first trip to America.

When The Beatles arrived in the United States in February of 1964, no one could have anticipated the tremendous impact the band would have on the development of American popular music and pop culture. On February 9, 1964, The Beatles made their first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Seventy-three million Americans saw the show live on their televisions that night. 

Paul Ingles hosts The Beatles in America - 1964 and takes listeners back to when The Beatles and America first got to know one another. This lively 1-hour montage features rarely heard archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews with fans and reporters who were swept into The Beatles frenzy.  

Ingles talks with historians and authors whose enthusiasm and excitement also reflects that phenomenal time. Naturally, The Beatles in America - 1964 includes plenty of hits from that year, but in true public radio form, it also showcases lesser-heard gems from early Beatle's albums that fans wore through. Join Paul Ingles for a thrilling walk down musical memory lane.
