America met The Beatles for the first time on February 7th, 1964, and from that day on, the music world and my life were never quite the same. So today on FUV Live, as we celebrate the band as FUV Essentials, we revisit my personal documentary, "It Was 50 Years Ago Today – The Beatles Invade America," recounting the events leading up to and following The Beatles' arrival at Kennedy Airport.

Lucinda Williams is not only one of our FUV Essentials, she is a veteran of our Holiday Cheer for FUV: Live from the Beacon Theatre concerts, having headlined in 2012 and also taken the stage with Amos Lee and Friends last year. Today, on her birthday, we look back to Lucinda's 2016 Holiday Cheer performance on FUV Live.
