For the record, the famous Sullivan Show appearance actually occurred before I was born.  Granted, only 6 days, but nonetheless still before. However, I would be a liar if I didn’t simply confess that I am a Beatleholic and do not consider Beatlemania an affliction but a blessing.  As well as the Fab Four has done over the years, it is clear I am not alone.

While many may feel that email newsletters are “so five minutes ago”, I still feel they are a good resource. One of my favorites is The Scout Report. The ezine is a librarian driven publication from the University of Wisconsin. They mainly focus on education but also do some kewl social and cultural features. This week, they shared some awesome Beatles links.

Here they are:

One thing for sure, Ed Sullivan certainly got his 10,000 dollars worth.  The famous 9 February broadcast became the most watched television event in history.  I am not sure how long it held that honor but Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band broke the White Christmas record for best-selling album in history and retained that album until beaten by Thriller. While there is certainly room to debate the album numbers, it is pretty certain the The Beatles are here to stay.
