We'll start with our own. Our family, like many, were all in front of the TV watching "The Ed Sullivan Show" to see, among other things, the Beatles. We'd recently purchased the mono “Meet the Beatles!” album for my sister and the 45 RPM singles for me.

As we sat to watch, my father remarked about their hair and how it was too long. But I ignored that and watched the show. Funny thing was when the Rolling Stones came on the Sullivan show a few months later, he realized the Beatles were “four fine youngsters,” as Ed said.

There's another reason Feb. 9 is a special day for us. Our only son, Phil, was born on Feb. 9. So happy birthday, son.

There are some great stories in here. A couple have some Beatles connections to them. Our sincere thanks to everyone who contributed. You can read the stories by clicking on View the Photos above.
