If you've had your TV, the radio, and all the Internets turned off for the last several days, you might have missed that this has been the 50th anniversary of The Beatles historic first performance on The Sullivan Show in the U.S. If you're under the age of, say, 25, you would even be excused for not understanding the cultural significance of that event, or maybe it would be more appropriate to say the impact that event had on culture, not only in the U.S., but around the world. Fear not, because Apple is streaming the performance on The Beatles' page on the iTunes Store. As someone who obsesses over context, I love watching this performance. You can see the screaming girls and adult women, the befuddled older people surrounded by the screaming girls and adult women, the reaction of the Fab Four to their reception, the text overlay saying, "John Lennon: Sorry girls, he's married," and Ed Sullivan's own reaction to the group. Check it out.
