Airs Sunday, February 16 at 6 p.m. 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. 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 hour long montage features rarely heard archival audio, concert recordings, and new interviews with fans and reporters who were swept into The Beatles frenzy. Some of the recordings featured in this program haven't been played publicly in 40 years. They are available here because of Larry Kane and Art Schreiber, two reporters who made almost every stop of The Beatle's 1964 tour and had remarkable access to the band. Their interviews capture the boys' wonder, humor, and thoughtful analysis of the madness that was swirling around them and enveloping the nation. Ingles talks with historians and authors whose enthusiasm and excitement also reflects that phenomenal time.
