Beatles 50th Anniversary
updated: Feb 08, 2014, 10:30 AM

By John Palminteri

When the Beatles arrived in the U.S. 50 years ago this week, they started a journey that influenced more than just music, with their lyrics and opinions that were soon talked about by politicians and religious leaders.

Former Santa Barbara radio announcer, Gerry DeWitt, who hosted the show "60's Revisited," recalls the Beatles arriving in New York to a crowd of screaming young people.

They were on their way to the Sunday night Ed Sullivan Show for what would be the first of three consecutive appearances in February of 1964.

But shortly after that, there came a change, and the Beatles grew up fast. By the start of the 1970's the Beatles had broken up. Their influence lived on, however, in music and society.
