The British Invasion has begun

February 7, 1964 – The Beatles arrive at JFK airport on Pan Am Flight 101.  For months the airwaves had been abuzz about this new group from Liverpool with strange clothes and long hair.  All around the city, posters proclamed “The Beatles are Coming!”  More than 3,000 screaming fans were there to meet them and Beatlemania had begun.  They would give three concerts and appear for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show.  They would return to the U.S. in August 1964, 1965, and 1966.  Their concert in San Francsico on August 29, 1966 was their last.
