oops sorry, link
When I was in the 6th grade, my London Pen-Pal wrote to me to “Be sure and watch the telly next Sunday, as her favorite Pop Group would be performing on the Ed Sullivan Show”.
She called then “The Beatles”. I was sure she had spelled the name incorrectly.
That was in February 1964. I got a guitar the following Christmas, and am STILL playing Beatles Songs. (My students LOVE them!)
