The Beatles Invade Milwaukee

[Original Airdate: September 1, 2014] In 1964, the Beatles were making history, with several hits on Billboard Magazines top 40, millions of records sold, and two rousing appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show. Milwaukee was only one of 25 cities on the Beatles first American tour. The 50th anniversary of the concert is celebrated with former WOKY DJ Bob Barry--the 5th Beatle, musicologist Joel Whitburn, Alexandra and Adele Topping, daughters of Nick Topping, who promoted the show in Milwaukee; Historian Diana Belscamper, and numerous individuals who attended the concert. Rare footage of the Beatles arriving at the airport, their press conference and highlights from the concert are presented. Barry revisits the Milwaukee Arena, and the Coach House Inn, where the Beatles stayed, now a Marquette University dorm.
