Fifty years ago today my mother told me she heard that a new “folk” group was going to be on the Ed Sullivan Show that night.  She said they were called “The Beatles” and they were like Peter, Paul & Mary (where she got that I have no idea). So we watched together in our family room.  I was on the couch and she was behind me ironing.

She didn’t like them.

I was instantly in love with their music and with Paul.

50 years ago.  Wow.
