If you’re here from Michele’s thank you. I will be to your blogs this weekend.
Carly, my sister’s sister in law was eight then. She was in love with Ed Sullivan; so in love with him she wrote him letters each week asking if she could be a guest on the show. She drove her parents and olderbrother crazy whining about Ed Sullivan
Finally two tickets arrived. Her father took her. They couldn’t understand why the audience was filled with teenage girls screaming. There was almost a riot. Carly was scared as was her father, though Lou wouldn’t admit it to her then. They were attempting to make their way out of the row, when four English boys walked onto the stage.
And so my sister’s sister-in-law saw The Beatles in their first American appearance.
