Today is the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' arrival in America for the first time. That day and the events that followed set off the British Invasion, Beatlemania and so much more. Among the many ways those days are being feted is Dennis Elsas' It Was 50 Years Ago Today - The Beatles Invade America today at 4pm on WFUV. We've also got it covered this morning with your favorite covers of Beatles songs. Put them in the comments below and we'll spin a stack after 9am.
Here's what we played this morning:
"For No One" - Emmylou Harris
"Dear Prudence" - Siouxsie and the Banshees
