This event held at Duquesne University on February 9, 2011 focuses on the context, climate and importance of The Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964. Through film interviews, television footage and a brief lecture by Don Maue, the audience is taken back to the winter of 1963 and 1964 just as The Beatles are about to invent the 1960's pop culture. Jordan Mroziak lectured on the climate of popular music and the predecessors of the pop music refined by The Beatles. Unfortunately Jordan's excellent lecture failed to capture the audio portion and therefore was unusable for this film.
Each year through 2016, The Beatle Years will present an annual event bringing 1965 through 1969 alive for audiences of all ages.
Thanks to Andy Beasom for his excellent work on the film!
