I have this song stuck in my head again -- I want to share the pain :-) Christmas hippo changed life for Oklahoma 10-year-old By Janelle Stecklein CNHI Oklahoma Reporter CITY — Most children ask for a puppy for Christmas, but Gayla Peevey wanted something larger — a certain temperamental beast that lives in Africa’s Nile River and wouldn’t even fit in her garage. While most children would consider asking Santa Claus for their gift, the precocious 10-year-old found the perfect outlet for her message — the insanely popular "Ed Sullivan Show," thanks to her record label, Columbia. So, just before Christmas 1953, the young Oklahoman sang what would become that year's top Christmas song, “I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas.” “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas. Only a hippopotamus will do. I don’t want a doll, no dinky Tinkertoy. I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy,” she sang in a voice filled with sass. And Oklahomans took her at her word. After hearing that Peevey wanted a hipp ...

Chinese propaganda poster, 1971: Red Army Drill Team performs on Ed Sullivan Show, bringing glory to the Motherland.
Thinking of the old fashioned "Sunday" growing up. We were not allowed to play with friends on Sunday. It was a quiet day that started out with Mass, and ended with the Ed Sullivan Show. There was individual sized frozen Jeno's pizza for lunch and oven baked chicken, baked potatoes and a random vegetable for dinner. ( I say random because that was the day my Mother would sneak in lima beans or beets thinking the food odds were in her favor and we would eat them.) After dinner, which was often in the formal dining room on Sundays, my parents would linger EXTRA long over coffee.I loved getting the good dishes out of the china cabinet and setting that table. It was a day of reading, loafing and Sunday afternoon movies.( Abbot and Costello or a musical...Oklahoma comes to mind. And oh, that was all in black and white.) I didn't know then how changed our family would become. I am grateful for this memory and for the rules of simpler times! : ) " And that is all I have to say about THAT!"
This isn't the Ed Sullivan Show but it sure is fun when the temp is 95 at 8:00 pm. Susan LOVES the Beatles!
1965 Epiphone Texan. This is the real deal made in Kalamazoo, MI at the Gibson factory. All original with the exception of the non-adjustable ivory saddle in place of the plastic adjustable kludge that typically kept these instruments from sounding their best. Paul McCartney used the left-handed version of this when he debuted "yesterday" on the Ed Sullivan Show the same year. It is structurally sound and given its age, in very nice cosmetic condition. There is one repaired/stable crack on the top and the lower/original frets show some wear. An under-saddle pick-up is installed. Pictured Martin case included. $3300.00 + shipping/insurance from Seattle WA. those interested should message me.

Moment in Time: June 5, 1956 - Elvis Presley shakes up U.S. TV viewers In photos: was not quite prepared for the sexy beast that was Elvis Presley in the summer of 1956. The future king of rock 'n' roll had already appeared on NBC's The Milton Berle Show three months earlier, but he lost the guitar for his return visit. In a raucous rendition of Hound Dog, Presley swivelled his hips madly and cradled the mike stand like a lover. Before the show wrapped, the NBC switchboard was flooded with angry callers. The next day, New York Daily News reviewer Ben Gross deemed Presley's performance "suggestive and vulgar, tinged with the kind of animalism that should be confined to dives and bordellos." But Elvis was no dummy: A few months later, the kid from Tupelo, Miss., inked a deal with the far more popular Ed Sullivan Show for a record-breaking sum of $50,000. Mercy. -- Andrew Ryan

"Hurt So Bad" is a classic 1965 ballad originally recorded by Little Anthony & The Imperials and re-recorded by numerous artists including Linda Ronstadt and The Lettermen. Little Anthony & The Imperials' original version was taken from their album, Goin' out of My Head. It was the follow-up to that album's smash-hit title song, and like that song, also became a Billboard Top 10 hit as well as a Top Five R&B hit. It was also performed by the group on their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was written especially for The Imperials by Teddy Randazzo, a long-time friend of the group, along with Bobby Weinstein and Bobby Hart (Harshman).
I was reading an article about Don Felder, and pulled up this biography. I was struck by how much talent was together in one small place at one time. Felder was born in Gainesville, Florida. From his paternal side he has German ancestry. He was first attracted to music after watching Elvis Presley live on The Ed Sullivan Show. He acquired his first guitar when he was about ten years old, which he has stated he exchanged with a friend at the five-and-dime for a handful of cherry bombs. A self-taught musician, he was heavily influenced by rock and roll. At the age of fifteen he started his first band, The Continentals, which also included Stephen Stills. Around this time, he met Bernie Leadon, who later became one of the founding members of the Eagles. Leadon replaced Stills in The Continentals, which eventually changed its name to the Maundy Quintet. Felder and Leadon both attended Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Florida. In the 1966 Gainesville High School yearbook, the Maundy Quintet is pictur ...

Watching the best of the Ed Sullivan show depresses me cuz I didn't live during this time
Do you sing? dance? juggle chainsaws? play a solo instrument? do ventriloquism? stand-up comedy? qualify for Cirque de Soleil (where all the performers who used to spin tables and bend up in strange ways on the Ed Sullivan Show now go)? If so, we are looking for a couple more people who would like to perform in either the Friday or Saturday night program. Call me…208-740-0270.

Gary was best known for his musical comedy act Fords and Reynolds many great years in show business which included TV appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show, Mike Douglas, and Steve Allen Shows plus several motion pictures including Woody Allens “Broadway Danny Rose” He performed many years on the Las Vegas strip performing in most every Vegas hotel with people like Frank, Dean, Sammy, Nat Cole and Tony Bennett etc. Gary was a family man his wife Lynn Reynolds was Miss North Carolina a lovely woman with a great big heart.

Fifty years ago this Sunday night, the Beatles made their American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show
For years, my father made a living as a magician around New England. He was good enough to have appeared on the Ed Sullivan show years ago. The trick that he was known for was sawing people in half. That trick has always held a special place in the hearts of my four half-sisters and half-brother.
Last nite I was at a smoking Jam session with the great Alto Player Joe Riposo. This man is my musical father the one that taught me so much about performance and soloing. At 80 he was kicking everybody's butt last nite with his sound quality and approach of the songs we played. Tonite we are gonna head out again to play at Columbia Station in DC if you happen to be there tonite you'll not forget this man his horn skills and what you learn when you get to meet him. This is the type of cat that that is willing to share something about music not to teach you something. Come by Columbia Station tonite if you want to witness a serious performer for free. This cat has performed with Sammy Davis Dean Martin Andy Williams Dizzy Gillespie Xavier Cugat Navy Wilson Mel Torme Tony Bennett Ed Sullivan show Sonny Rollins Ray Brown James Moody and the list goes on. Last nite Columbia Station was smoking with the performance but tonite is gonna be a fire...Come by and live the experience of hearing the great Joe Riposo ...

Really enjoyed The Beatle's tribute celebrating 50 years on the Ed Sullivan Show, Seeing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on the same stage was amazing! Dhani Harrison was brilliant but would have been better if Julian Lennon and Zak Starkey had appeared with him, would have almost been a re-construction of the Fab Four - my heroes!!! xxx
My tribute to a remarkable Family. Hello MMFC members. Sometimes I am asked why I have always been a Ludwig Drummer. Here is my story. Starting with the Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, I like so many other aspiring drummers started taking Drums quite seriously. Later on after I had spent 4 years in the US Marine Drum & Bugle Corps in Wash DC, and completed my Percussion Performance BA, from 1981-84 I worked at Drums LTD in Chicago. It was an interesting experience because my boss Bill Crowdon's wife was Brooke Ludwig Crowdon. So every Friday I got to go to the Ludwig factory on 1928 N. Damen Ave to pick up the Ludwig Drum order. Also William F. Ludwig Jr. (WFL II) would come over to the drum shop about every other week for lunch or dinner with Bill Crowdon. They were VERY close both in a Business sense as well as family. Having been a loyal Ludwig Drummer since when all I could afford in 8th Grade was a pair of Ludwig drumsticks, it was such a thrill to actually get to know this incred ...

Thank you PBS for a weekday gift - a 2-hour show about one of the best bands of the 1960's, Dave Clark Five. One band that knew enough to get out before becoming a joke, something like 15 top-20 tunes, 18 appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show (if you don;t know who Ed Sullivan was, you're mighty young) and Dave remains a frustratingly shrewd businessman. I always heard that Dave Clark will give up his hold on his music if Steve Mathews will just add one more T
Keith and Brian in the dressing room at the Ed Sullivan Show, 11 September, 1966. Brian Jones had allegedly injured his hand in a domestic dispute, which forced the Stones to pre-record the two songs they had scheduled. Brian was supposed to play sitar on one song “Paint It Black” and dulcimer on “Lady Jane”, which he was struggling with due to his busted-up hand.
home from a wonderful evening at Celebrations, saw The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Dusty Springfield, Hermans Hermits, Lulu, and Petula Clark all on the Ed Sullivan Show!

Hello everyone. I have just watched the Beatles 50th Anniversary Concert which was quite magnificent . The artists that performed the tributes Joe Walsh, Annie Lennox, Alicia Keys performed such great songs of the Beatles era did them proud. Sir Paul and Ringo where awesome and still have what it takes . during an interview televised , Paul and Ringo both spoke to David Letterman explaining what it was like to be a Beatle. How it was liked to be locked up in a hotel room with only the four of them to part of the moment and how the introduction to the Ed Sullivan Show was their official introduction to the American People. Which if truth be known was the start of the British Invasion . One person who was never mentioned throughout the entire show by these two legends was the man who made the Beatles "The Fifth Beatle" if you like, and the man who made everything possible for them to be the legends they are to day . Can anyone tell me who that individual was ? Let me save you the trouble , In short , dea .. ...
just watched "the Beatles: The Night that changed America" and loved it! Brought back so many emotions and memories. I remember watching them on the Ed Sullivan Show on our back and white tv trying to adjust the rabbit ears so it came in more clearly. Fast forward 50 years, whoa life!
changed everything and it even effected me 35 years later, when I watched them on the Ed Sullivan Show on a VHS tape I had ✌🎸
re-watching The Beatles special. Paul is still cute. Jody Tubbs-Watson do you remember watching the Ed Sullivan Show that night at your house with everyone there?
Fifty years ago the Beatles performed in USA. Watching the special what a fabulous show! Where we're you when the Beatles made their first appearance on Ed Sullivan Show?
Just got off of work and found the Beatles 50th anniversary celebration of their debut on the Ed Sullivan Show on tv... If you don't know who they are I feel bad for you. Go by a record player and learn thyself! Thank you Beatles for so many classics

A lot of good memories came back from watching the footage of The Beatles on Ed Sullivan Show. My Mother and my 70 something Grandmother dancing and swaying in her rocking chair. I didn't understand all the fuss over some boys singing but I did want to see Ed talking to Topo Gigo! It was a good night.
Memories! Tonite brought many memories for me. Just watched the Encore of Beatles 50th! Missed in earlier. Great show! I was 23 years old when the Beatles came to the US for the Ed Sullivan Show. Unfortunately, or Fortunately, I was with the USAF in England at the time. I got to know the Beatles quite awhile before they were known over here! Listened to them on the radio and seen them on the Telle. Always loved their music, especially the early songs of the 60's. Then came the 'Psycodelic' time and the drugs, the 70's. I returned to Leominster in April 1965. The Beatles were very popular then and 'forever. I have been asked many times if I used drugs during the 70's. I am proud to say I never have, or even thought about it. Of course I had the opportunity? Maybe because I also never smoked? The show was great and can't believe the energy of Ringo, who is older than I! Paul still has a great voice and is a great showman as is Ringo! I was happy and hoping they would end with 'Hey Jude' and they did! Also . ...
Watching 'The Night that Changed America' I love the Beattle's Music. It is a tribute to the 50th years since the Beattles appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. If I would of been around than I could see myself as one of those screaming girls in the crowds. I would of had trouble picking between John or Paul. LOL. "She loves you, yeah yeah yeah" :-)
Carolyn and I just finished watching the Beatles 50th anniversary Ed Sullivan Show. Brought back wonderful memories!! Don't understand how rap crap even merits being on the airwaves in this day and age. In my opinion, which I seldom respect, it's due to the lack of family values being established at the dinner table which has long since been abandoned in favor of TV meals and no family interaction. What you sow so shall you reap.
Watched the repeat of the Beatles 50th Anniversary Tribute tonight since I missed it Sunday night. Really enjoyed most of it. Yoko still seems a little loopy. Hard to believe it was 50 years ago and I was only 9 years old. Remember sitting in the floor, right in front of the black & white tv, watching them on the Ed Sullivan Show with my sister and Spurlock cousins.
Heaven just appeared on my TV. Beatles Tribute on CBS!?!?!? What I wouldn't give to have been a teenager when the Fab Four landed in the US. I would have been that girl in the stands on the Ed Sullivan Show, the one that is shaking and screaming and crying and flipping out... . Oh wait. I think that was EVERY girl in the stands that day.
50 years ago today: The appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show :)

Did you see the tribute to the Beatles? I saw that show on the Ed Sullivan Show. Beatles forever!
50 years ago tonite I sat with Mom and Dad in North Bay Ontario and 73 million others to watch the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show - WOW!!!
Listening to the Beetles brings back good memories. I remember going crazy watching the Ed Sullivan Show just like Elvis Presley. I'll never grow up!
Ok fb friends, I've not been on tonight so I don't know what others have posted. I have been watching The Beatles program on CBS. My, my, my, what memories this brings back. Yes I do remember the night they were on Ed Sullivan Show. Do you? What music! The beat to their songs just made me want to get up and dance. I tried but LOL. I just don't have it anymore. Just made me think of old times with great friends. Hope those of you who got to watch this program got the old memories back as well.
Just watched the Beatles tribute (replay) on CBS. My mother's brother, our Uncle Bud (John McGeehan) was the Associate Producer of the Ed Sullivan Show, and I remember that night very well (I was almost 10 years old). It was such an exciting time!
Wonderful tribute on CBS tonight to celebrate 50th Anniversary of Ed Sullivan Show appearance. Great stuff
Watching the Beatles' 50th Anniversary tribute from Ed Sullivan Show and decided that I when I grow up I really want to be a rock star.
So glad I caught the Beatles Special about their American Debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. Their Music is what other music strives to be. Their music was, is, and always will be Great!
Watching Beatles rerun of 50 years since Ed Sullivan Show with Wally. We love this! Wally used 2 sing a bunch of these songs 2 me when he was at UVA n Charlottesville n I would visit him there on weekends from my job n DC. We attended church every weekend there, too. Lol. Great memories.
This was the first time Paul McCartney wrote the words to a song before the music. "All My Loving" began as a poem he conceived while he was shaving one morning thinking about his girlfriend Jane Asher, who he met when she interviewed him for the magazine Radio Times. He wrote the music that night. He originally envisioned it as a country/western song. This Beatles classic was never released as a single, but it was the first song the group played on their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance: February 9, 1964. It was a historic telecast, as over 73 million people tuned in. At the time, that was the largest audience ever for a TV show.
Today, in the history of Rock and Roll, February 11th: 1956: For his third appearance on CBS' Dorsey Brothers Stage Show, Elvis Presley is finally permitted to perform "Heartbreak Hotel." 1963: In just under ten hours, the Beatles record all ten tracks for their debut LP, released in England as Please Please Me. John's cold makes the process actually take a bit longer than it should; by the time the band gets to the last song of the session, "Twist and Shout," the hoarseness is noticible. Nevertheless, John nails it in one take. 1964: Fresh from their first appearance on CBS' Ed Sullivan Show, the Beatles leave for Washington, DC in a snow storm in order to give their first US live performance at the Washington Coliseum, with opening acts Tommy Roe, the Caravelles, and the Chiffons. Yet another press conference is given before the show. The performance -- "Roll Over Beethoven," "From Me to You," "I Saw Her Standing There," "This Boy," "All My Loving," "I Wanna Be Your Man," "Please Please Me," "Till There ...
MUSIC HISTORY 101 On February 12, 1964, THE BEATLES departed Washington D.C. after having performed their first US concert at the city’s Coliseum upon the night before. They were headed back to NYC, where they’d just headlined the Ed Sullivan Show three nights earlier, but on this evening they were off to headline two shows at the Big Apple’s prestigious Carnegie Hall, a nearly impossible feat at the time for a rock band, especially a foreign one. The show had been arranged by music mogul Sid Bernstein, who unlike many of his posh contemporaries understood the cult of personality and had spent a year kowtowing to the prevailing powers-that-be and bending over backwards to bring the Beatles to the esteemed venue. It held a high-brow image with an elite clientele, and rock-n-roll was considered below its average patrons’ discriminating tastes. Prior to that night, Bill Haley & the Comets held the distinction of being the only rock artist to have graced its stage, an honor not even Elvis and the Colo ...
I strongly recommend that anyone who missed it watch tonight's rebroadcast of The Beatles' 50th Anniversary of coming to America via the Ed Sullivan Show at 7:30 tonight. To the younger folks who automatically hate everything that came before your time, the Beatles were before my and most of the rest of our times too, but just because things are older doesn't mean we can't appreciate fine films, good books, or great music. Nearly everyone at one time or another got into the Beatles. Some highlights: - Maroon 5 was okay on "All My Loving," much better on "Ticket To Ride" - Ed Sheeren, a British singer I'd never heard of, did "In My Life" with soothing style and emotion - Pharrell Williams and Brad Paisley gently singing "Here Comes The Sun" was the pinnacle of the show. That song, with its seemingly simple opening guitar riff, has become a favorite. Williams is amazing here. - Imagine Dragons did well with "Revolution," but were sadly missing the defiant, rebellious tone that's critical to the song - Kei . ...
NOT EVERYONE LOVED THE BEATLES 50 YEARS AGO; Many critics posted blistering reviews after the Ed Sullivan Show featured the Beatles. LA Times - Not even their mothers would claim that they sing well, but the hirsute thickets they affect make them memorable. William F. Buckley, Jr. - The Beatles are not merely awful, I would consider it sacrilegious to say anything less than that they are god awful. They are so unbelievably horribly, so appallingly unmusical, etc. Newsweek - Visually they are a nightmare, tight dandified Edwardian - Beatnik suits and great pudding bowls of hair. Musically they are a near disaster. Chicago Tribune - The Beatles must be a huge joke, a wacky gag, a gigantic put-on. Boston Globe - They sound like a group of disorganized amateurs whose voices seem to be fighting each other rather than blending. I wonder what those critics would say today if they watched Flea and the Chili Peppers at the Super Bowl, no shirts, really long hair, tattoos, and really loud music.

Take a sad song and make it better! Beatles 50 yr anniversary of appearance on Ed Sullivan Show
Frank Gorshin's stand up routine of impressions, on the Feb. 9, 1964 Ed Sullivan Show, is a comedic gem that is often overlooked when people discuss this show (understandably, because of the first appearance of The Beatles on Ed Sullivan). Sometimes people point out the appearance of a young Davy Jones (The Monkees), but Frank Gorshin killed it, especially if you're a fan of classic films, and know who Burt Lancaster, Marlon Brando, Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and others of that era, all are (you'd be surprised how many people do NOT know those personalities). ...oh yeah, and the moptops were good on that show, too (though John's vocal is mixed low)
Where were you when The Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan Show? I'll start. We were stationed in The Panama Canal Zone on the ARMY Post, FT Davis. I was 6 1/2.
50 years ago I missed the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show 'cuz my mom made me go to church. I am making up for that miss tonight, watching the Beatles Tribute & flipping to the Olympics during commercials. No Downton Abby; just too many good choices.
Two items for this 9th of February 1) While traveling today, Found gas cheaper at the Beaver Dam Rest Stop than in Bowling Green and CC. Can't remember that ever happening! 2) Learned via the Pad. Sun I have been to a pop culture landmark. The Beatles landed in the US IN FEB 1964. 50 years ago Tonight, they were on the Ed Sullivan Show. Where David Letterman now resides. On a trip to the Big Apple 10 years ago, my fair wife and I enjoyed The Letterman Show that included ironically a performance by Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of another 60's musical icon.
50 years ago my brother & I were living with cousins in Champagne, IL. My Mother was attending her final year of school at Arizona State. We would have watched the Ed Sullivan Show with cousins Clarence & Barbara Berbaum & their children, Randy & Sandra.
Fellow classmates, I hope you're watching The Grammys Solute to The Beatles. We were in 11th grade. I remember that Ed Sullivan Show, do you? BTW, my cousin Ken Ken Ehrlich produced this show. They taped the day after the Grammys.
I was 5 when the Beatles debuted on the Ed Sullivan Show, if my daddy would of let us watch, I just don't remember! Now my sis and brother, Robin Robinson Furrer and Tommy Robinson may remember!
I have the whole Ed Sullivan Show with the Beatles on DVD. If I wasn't going to Justin Timberlake I would be watching it.
Gonna settle in at 8 o'clock for the CBS special The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – a Grammy Salute. It's taking place in the old Ed Sullivan Show studio, where David Letterman does his show now. It'll be a walk down Penny Lane!
Neil Aspinall always seemed to me a cool guy. "The Beatles' personal assistant Neil Aspinall stands in for George Harrison during a morning camera rehearsal for the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. Harrison was getting in his last bit of rest and recuperation due to a streptococcal sore throat, but he'd recover in time for a later rehearsal and taping prior to the Beatles' live television debut in the United States."
