Today, in the history of Rock and Roll, February 6th: 1939: Elvis Presley's father Vernon is released from Parchment Penitentiary in McComb MS, after serving eight months of a 14-month sentence for check forgery. 1962: Decca Records rejects the Beatles. 1964: Tickets for the first Beatles appearance on CBS' Ed Sullivan Show sell out. 1967: The Byrds issue their fourth studio album, “Younger Than Yesterday.” The set contains a cover of Bob Dylan’s “My Back Pages.” 1970: John Lennon releases “Instant Karma (We All Shine On),” his best Rock song. 1981: Paul McCartney records vocal harmonies for George Harrison's "All Those Years Ago," an oddly upbeat tribute to the recently-murdered John Lennon (the song actually started life as something else entirely).

WOW! Thank you so much! We've had an incredible response to the story we did on Dave Walker in our Carolina Camera special that aired Wednesday night!! Dave is 70 years young...a retired financial analyst...lives in Hickory...and was a founding member of the Gary Lewis and the Playboys band in the 1960s! Their first song, "This Diamond Ring", shot to number one on the Billboard charts...and the group had several more top ten hits! The group played on the Ed Sullivan Show and many other shows...toured the country.even met the Beatles! That's Dave in the black and white photo...second from the left...and then with me at his home in Hickory. Dave's current band, The Time Travelers, often plays in the area! Just a terrific fellow...really enjoyed doing that story!!

Wow. Just got back from the Grammys' 50th Anniversary Tribute to the Beatles Concert. It'll be on CBS Feb 9. Saw it with Bill Berry, Richard Goldman and 7000 other very happy people. The show was a mix of live performers doing their "favorite Beatles songs," clips from Sullivan, clips from the four Beatles movies, short bios, and filmed interviews with some of the crew who worked with the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Several outstanding moments: Annie Lennox singing Fool on the Hill, Dhani Harrison doing harmony vocals on Something, David Grohl and Jeff Lynne doing Hey Bulldog. And then there was a moment that's been due for 46 years. Paul singing Sgt. Pepper's LHCB, segueing into A Little Help From My Friends - with Ringo singing. Ringo was loose, funny, and in great (Ringo) voice. And Paul blasted out a fantastic seven-song set. There were a couple of so-so (or questionable) performances, but the other acts were generally pretty exciting. They were backed up by a great not-a-house-band, featuri ...

I'm 64 been a fan since the age of 13. I remember when I fist saw them on the Ed Sullivan Show on TV what a night that was. It was me my older sister and mom everyone was screaming but I was screaming the loudest. I fell in love with guy and last night the only reason I watch the Grammys was cause Paul and Ringo were coming on. To me this was like the Ed Sullivan Show first Ringo and was was yelling cause I love this guy.. The llCool said Paul was coming on with a special guest surprise , I was saying well I gyre it's not Ringo cause he just preformed, but maybe it's Shawn and Yoko or George's son or Julian. I was still hoping it was Ringo cause this will be the first ever to play together on TV. Hoping waiting and so here it cones they started to announce who was Paula guest and it was Ringo Star.

Albert Pritchard ~ TBU Question of the Day! The Beatles 1964 release, “Beatles For Sale” was supposed to have a completely different cover. What did it look like? Answer (and Photos) Tomorrow Same Beatle Time and Station! Yesterday’s Question: As The Beatles sat in their Paris hotel room in January 1964, they got the news they’d been dreaming of. What was that special news? Answer … I Want To Hold Your Hand had shot to No 1 in the American chart selling 10,000 copies an hour in New York alone. Their first visit to the US in February brought scenes of mayhem like those back home, and their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show transfixed the nation. The Beatles phenomenon was now international. Returning home from their first US visit where in April they held the top five positions in the singles chart the band got straight to work on their first film, A Hard Days Night. Then it was off Down Under for a tour, using stand-in drummer Jimmy Nicol as Ringo was ill with tonsilitis. Meanwhile, The Beatle ...

Carolyn Griggs Moore has arm-twisted me into telling 10 things not many people know about me. 1. The house I grew up in on the river road in Sharpes, FL, was home to five generations of Pinkertons, counting my brother and me. 2. My dad would drive the family to Cocoa Beach every Sunday, and dinner that night would always be a half-quart of ice cream each, eaten while watching the Ed Sullivan Show. 3. Clair Nesbit's dad loaned us a horse for a week when I was 13 and horse-crazy, and it swiped me off against an orange tree. Someone found me with my foot in one stirrup and the rest of me on the ground, knocked out. I felt like Dale Evans. 4. My mother wing-walked once on an airplane for fun. 5. My father flew a plane under the Hubert Humphrey Bridge. 6. My Senior Prom date, Bob Busk, and I got married 28 years later. 7. I got into real trouble my first year away at college because Darla Beverage and I figured out a way to make free phone calls to each other. I would find a pay phone and send Darla a postca . ...
Nov. 18 -- Today I am very thankful that my generation (now mostly grandparents) grew up watching some of the following TV shows, that it when we finally got TV's!!! Lucy and Desi, Abbott and Costello, Ozzie and Harriet, Red Skelton, Lassie, Jackie Gleason, Captain Kangaroo, Jack Benny, Show of Shows (Imogene Coca and Sid Ceasar), Our Miss Brooks, Danny Thomas, This is Your Life, Dinah Shore, Arthur Godfrey, Leave it to Beaver, Mickey Mouse Club, Carol Burnett, Dean Martin, Andy Williams, Dinah Shore, Spin and Marty, the Ed Sullivan Show, Davy Crockett, Lone Ranger, Sky King, Gene Autry, and, my personal favorite, American Bandstand!!! These and many others kept our childhoods full of laughter and fun. We were not faced with sex and violence everyday of our formative years -- we were very lucky in my opinion. Sure wish it was the same for our grandchildren!

'I Want to Hold Your Hand' Turns 50: Let's Celebrate the Birth of Beatlemania By Chris Willman 12 hours ago Stop The Presses! Tune in Monday, October 14 at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET to see Paul McCartney's Frank Sinatra School of the Arts concert stream EXCLUSIVELY on Yahoo View gallery . photo: CBS Photo Archive/Getty Images It was 50 years ago today next week that the Beatles showed the world they could play. And change pop culture forever. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was written on October 16, 1963, and recorded the next day. Within two months, it would be firmly entrenched at No. 1 in Britain and starting to get a little radio play across the pond. It was not much more than three months later that it reached the top of the pops in America ... paving the way for an "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance that still stands as just about the greatest example of "appointment viewing" in TV history. Here is the story behind the seminal song. Things were not so hysterical when John Lennon and Paul McCartney sat down togethe ...

Don Cheadle gives an informative flashback to the 1963-64 TV season and the two events that shaped it -- the Kennedy assassination and the Beatles' appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, which is capped off with Carrie Underwood's rendition of "Yesterday" (which was nice, but Cheadle's narration and the archival footage did it for me).

AMERICA'S 100 BEST MOVIE SOUNDTRACKS 1. A Hard Day's Night (1964) - The Beatles It was the G7sus4 heard 'round the world. You may not recognize that chord by name, but you'd instantly know it as the ringing opening salvo of ''A Hard Day's Night,'' the soundtrack that turned a nation into a glee club. In 1964, the Beatles had already taken over our radios and TV sets when they decided to commandeer our movie palaces, too. The resulting film was an exhilarating fusion of the backstage musical and postmodern absurdism. To re-create the hysteria that had greeted their ''Ed Sullivan Show'' appearances, the Fabs had to come up with tunes that would out- pleasure ''Please Please Me.'' And they delivered, the film's seven classics ranging from the plaintive ''And I Love Her'' to the ecstatic ''Can't Buy Me Love.'' The music stands on its own, yet is forever tied in our imaginations to the film -- a blitzkrieg of black-and- white imagery that changed the way we see the world. We can't think of a better definition ...
Love, Magic and the Quest for a New Suit The green room of The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson was stocked with enough liquor for a large party, but it was midafternoon and the members of The 88 don’t drink anyway. Running on three hours of sleep, the local power-pop quintet had driven straight from San Francisco to West Hollywood, and all they wanted to do was dig into the food and let the nerves run their course. In 2004 they played on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but they weren’t exactly TV veterans. At the talent booker’s request, they would be performing “All ’Cause of You,” a swooning love song and live-show favorite from their second album, Over and Over. It wasn’t the rollicking single “Hide Another Mistake,” which appeared on Grey’s Anatomy the night before, “but we play this one better, anyway,” said singer-guitarist Keith Slettedahl. Slettedahl, The 88’s primary songwriter, has a truly great rock voice: capable of bending from a Marc Bolan warble to a Jeff Buckley wail (altho ...

An Appeal To The Supremes On June 26, 2013 , the Justices of the Supreme Court in Washington, DC came together and made history. I want to dance in celebration, however, the music is missing. It is time for all The Supremes to come together and make history, especially the ones from Detroit. Dear Diana, Mary and Cindy: In 1970, the three of you broke up. I thought it forever ended my chances of seeing you perform live. Well, never say "forever". In fact, my forever came today. In 1975, Lorne Michaels (with whom I share a birthday, but that's not important now) offered The Beatles $3000 to reunite on Saturday Night Live. I would like to make you, The Supremes, a similar offer. I will bake each of you one free cheesecake a month for two years if you will reunite for a performance. Think of it... 72 cheesecakes. You should have won that many Grammy Awards. Stop! In The Name Of Love...there's cheesecake. I Hear A Symphony? I see a cheesecake. Love Child? I will bake you a legitimate cheesecake. Up The Ladder ...

SCOTTY McKAY Born Max K. Lipscomb, 1937, Dallas, Texas Died 17 March 1991 Max Lipscomb is probably better remembered for the three months or so that he was a member of Gene Vincent's Blue Caps than for his own solo career as Scotty McKay. By 1957, changes in the personnel of the Blue Caps had become common- place. Lipscomb was recruited by Ed McLemore's Artists Service Bureau in Dallas, probably around September 1957. (McLemore was Gene Vincent's first professional manager.) Max began his life as a Blue Cap as a backing singer, but was soon moved to rhythm guitar and he ended up playing piano (the first time a piano was used on a Blue Caps session) at the December 1957 sessions. Fifteen tracks were recorded then, most of them finding their way on to Gene's third LP, "Gene Vincent Rocks and the Blue Caps Roll", released in March 1958. Lipscomb also appeared with Gene and the Blue Caps on the Ed Sullivan Show on November 17, 1957. Soon after the December sessions, Max Lipscomb, Paul Peek and Tommy Facenda l ...

Of course, I loved my Mom and my Dad so very much. They both were the best parents ever. They were very loving and so much fun. We did a lot a family things together. Sunday nights were my favorites. My Mom made her " famous Welsh Rarebitt" over toast points with the crust cut off. She made her wonderful home made cream of tomato soup served in a cup and we got to get the greatest hot chocolate with a scoop of vanilla ice cream floating in it. And with that to boot, we all got to eat in the Family Room together watching the famous TV Show "LASSIE" and then the "ED SULLIVAN SHOW". And in between my Mom used to play the Ukelele and sing to us while my Dad chimed in some Whisseling the tunes. Ha!

"Toast of the Town" Martin and Lewis were among the guests on Ed Sullivan’s first network television show. Jerry and Ed went on to become great friends. Jerry performed on Ed’s show many times over the years, and even talked Ed into portraying an over exaggerated version of himself in Jerry’s film "The Patsy" (1964). Credits: [TV series] 1948-1955. Notable Guest Appearances: Fred Astaire as himself (2/14/54), Hedy Lamarr as herself (9/17/50), Jerry Lewis as himself (6/20/1948), Dean Martin as himself (6/20/1948), and Jane Powell as herself (2/14/54).

Vanilla Fudge's version of "You Keep Me Hangin' On" from the Ed Sullivan show is still one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
I remember listening to rock and roll as a young kid. Of course my parents would say how can you listen that crap? At least our music (frank sinatra, Dean Martin and such) you can understand the words. Well I turned my XM radio to the Seriously Sinatra channel and it takes me back to the days as a very young kid and watching all those stars on a black and white tv (5 channels) and my dad using me as a remote and how smart I thought was when learned how turn that little knob on the channel knob to make the picture clearer. And yes mom and dad, I do like being able understand all the words.

The Southern Chronicles: Big Rebel Question - Is Holmes Ready? In the Rebel Yell front office, concern over the readiness of tailback Priest Holmes is a painful and ongoing vigil. Not since the Bo Jackson injury, or maybe even since Elvis Presley first appeared on the prime time stage of the Ed Sullivan Show, gyrating his pelvis in a suggestive manner that caused network censors to squirm uneasily, has a hip been so meticulously monitored. And little wonder. Holmes is hardly a one-man offense but, given his performance over a two-season stretch in which he was the NFL's premier all-around back, he certainly is the linchpin of one of its most explosive attacks. Since being plucked from the free agent bargain basement on Draft Day '01, the onetime EFFL afterthought has registered 4,456 combined yards from scrimmage, scored 34 touchdowns and earned a pair of Pro Bowl selections. Fueling the angst surrounding Holmes, who missed the final two outings of the season and subsequently underwent surgery on his rig ...

Born on this day in 1924, Chet Atkins, guitarist. Recorded over 100 albums during his career, major influence on George Harrison and Mark Knopfler. Atkins died on June 30 2001, at the age of 77.   In 1948, Toast Of The Town, which would later be called the Ed Sullivan Show, premiered on CBS-TV. The first telecast was produced on a meager budget of $1,375. Only $375 was allocated for talent and $200 of that was shared by the young stars of that night's program, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis.   In 1956, Elvis Presley guested on Wink Martindale's Memphis TV show to promote a benefit concert.   In 1959, the management of the Lido Club in Paris called Elvis Presley's hotel and demanded that the club's entire female chorus line be returned in time for that night's show. Elvis and his entourage were staying in Paris during his furlough from the U.S. Army while he was stationed in Germany.   In 1960, 17-year-old Annette Funicello entered the Billboard Pop chart with the Paul Anka penned "Train of Lo ...

Excerpt from 'Thanks for the memories' by Brice Taylor - "Michael Jackson was just a little boy of four or five when I accompanied Bob Hope to a place where they were filming up-and- coming talent for television. Bob told me he supported and sponsored the Jacksons, getting them a professional foot in the door. Their father brought the boys in and I remembered seeing them taken into a side room where bright lights were on. They all had to drop their pants and before their performance a big man raped each one of them in a lineup. Then they were taken to a different room and dressed in little suits and sent onto the stage to perform. Due to the mind control I was under, I'm not sure exactly where we were, but feel that it was the early days of the Ed Sullivan Show. I watched as Bob, dressed in a grey pinstripe suit and bow tie, with white shoes, shook hands with Ed; and then the Jackson boys went on. They were made into a sensation and famous, on purpose, so that they could be used in the future to influence ...

Randy Meisner Biography Randy Herman Meisner was born on March 8, 1946 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. He came from humble beginnings; his parents were sharecroppers and his family didn't have much money. However, at the age of 10, he would discover a talent that would be his way out: music. After seeing Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show, he got a guitar and taught himself how to play. After that, music was all there was for Meisner. He dropped out of high school and concentrated on honing his musical skills, especially since he needed the income to support a family; he'd married at 17 to Jennifer Lee Barton. At that point, he was working as a professional musician with a band he'd formed called The Driving Dynamics. Their concerts mostly consisted of high school dances and local events, and Meisner wanted more. He traveled around the Midwest as a member of various bands, but one could only go so far there. The west coast beckoned. It was in 1964 when Meisner finally found a reason to head to California. He joined ...
Some things you may not know about me: I have been analyzing handwritings professionally since I was 14 years old. My specialty is JOB APTITUDES. Betty White used to sing songs for me on Jack Paar. I was Alan Bates' first fan. I always wanted to be a lyricist. I forced Sammy Cahn's heckler out of the Rainbow Room. I got Gracie Fields to call my mother Grace. I did publicity for MGM for 7 years. I spent a Father's Day with Arthur Freed who wrote "Singing in the Rain." I had dinner with Audie Murphy and he brought me home to meet my room mate Bob. I lost only 5 cases in 40 years as a Document Examiner. I have a hilarious comedy act called Doctor Tro-oth! I have a twin brother who is funnier than I am. Jan Clayton sang a song for me on the Ed Sullivan Show. I dated Gene Hackman. I was taught how to tell a joke by Lou Jacoby. I've studied 8 languages. I'm the first woman who wrote a full length Broadway musical by herself, [Book, Words, & Music] and I am rewriting only two scenes. My favorite ...

The Rolling Stones made their U.S. television debut on June 2, 1964 -- not on the "Hollywood Palace" variety program on ABC or the "Ed Sullivan Show" on CBS or even Westinghouse Broadcasting Company's syndicated "Mike Douglas Show," but rather on a local broadcast: the "Les Crane Show," which aired at 1 a.m. on WABC-TV Channel 7, New York. Crane interviewed all five band members *** Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts) as they prepared for their first U.S. concert tour. The 10-city tour began June 5 in the Swing Auditorium at the Orange Show Fairgrounds in San Bernardino, California. The Stones opened with their only U.S. hit at the time: their cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away." All but one of the remaining 10 songs in their set were covers of other performers' songs: Chuck Berry's "I'm Talking About You," the Beatles' "I Wanna Be Your Man," Tommy Tucker's "High-Heeled Sneakers," "Nat King Cole's" "Route 66," Rufus Thomas' "Walkin' the Dog," "Tell Me" (the only *** Ja .. ...
June 1, 1971 Gladys Knight is the last musical guest to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show, which was canceled the next day after 23 years on the air. It was TV's longest running variety show and was a springboard for nearly every major music act in the '60s. Sullivan was so angry about the cancellation that he refused to do a final show, although he would return for several TV specials and a 25th-anniversary show in 1973.
