This Day in History

On February 9, 1964...


...Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry might as well have been Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby.

Oddly enough, Ed Sullivan stayed the same.

  1. For some reason Ringo always looks kind of dour. (When asked once if he's really that sad all the time he replied, 'No, that's just me face ... ')

    1. The rest of us evolved from monkeys, notacynic, whereas Ringo evolved from a bassett hound.

      Just kidding, Ringo, in the slim chance you're reading this.

  2. I didn't get to see that show. I doubt my parents did either. Weird.

    1. I was two at the time. I might have been plopped in front of the set and don't remember. Ed Sullivan was still on the air by the time entered grade school, and I remember the set always being tuned in to that, so I'm guessing my parents watched it, but I never thought to ask them. Equally weird, Patricia.

  3. I was in High School... Loved The Beatles and my favorite was RINGO ! still is. He is just a bit goofy. According to a friend who met him at a business dinner he is quiet nice.

    1. parsnip, here's part of a comment I left on Patricia's blog, The Polygon:

      "One final thought. When I was a kid--before high school and before I fully understood the band's dynamics--I assumed Ringo Starr was the most important Beatle, because he seemed to play the lead in all the movies!"

    2. We figured he was the Star because of his name ... ; )
