On This Day…..

The Beatles Invade the U.S.…..

February 7, 1964……

The Beatles arrive for their first trip to the U.S. and are greeted by screaming mobs at the airport. When asked about the Detroit movement to stamp out the Beatles, they responded, “We’re starting a movement to stamp out Detroit.” Chet Huntley didn’t consider their arrival important enough to show on the NBC evening news.
