The Beatles' first appearance on Ed Sullivan caused major mayhem in our house because my 10-year old sister Claire had just gotten the first album for her birthday two days earlier. I remember her jumping up and down in front of the TV. My brother Byron, 13 at the time, was transfixed. I had just turned 6 in late December and enjoyed staying up later than normal. I thought George was the best looking of the four. I usually didn't stay up for Ed Sullivan unless ToPo Giggio the mouse was on. My strongest memory is learning the Twist to George singing Check Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven", which was the first song on that album. Sort of ironic that a cover brings back the happiest memory of that week. -Maureen
