I have to admit, I was waiting in line at the bank when this new song came across the radio that caught my attention. I mean I listened and thought to myself, "Could it be? No, that can't be Boy George." But it was. His new song, "King Of Everything," was playing on the radio. [...]]]>

Elvis Presley performing via satellite. And perhaps one of the biggest game-changers came 50 years ago whens The Beatles made their American debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
Seventy-three million people tuned in to watch four lads from Liverpool perform in America for the first time. It was Feb. 9, 1964, the day a musical revolution began.

Meet the Beatles: How four longhaired lads from Liverpool changed America http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20140207/NEWS/140209441/1013/ENTERTAINMENTLIFE?rssfeed=true Fri, 07 Feb 2014 11:32:40 +0000 By Rick Holmes More Content Now http://www.butlercountytimesgazette.com/article/20140207/NEWS/140209441/1013/ENTERTAINMENTLIFE It was a long, long time ago. Fifty years, as a matter of fact. I was in middle school, though we called it junior high back then. And there was never a better time to be entering adolescence.
President Kennedy had been shot in November, and grownup America was in a pretty dark mood that winter. But something was growing in America's youth, and [...]]]>
