Where were you during the last week of December in 1963? I was glued to the radio, listening for one of the New York City DJ's to play "I Want To Hold Your Hand" or "I Saw Her Standing There" by a group whose sound I'd never heard the like of before. Little did I know that The Beatles had been scream and faint-worthy heroes for many months in the UK, and before that honing their craft in Liverpool and Hamburg. For me Beatlemania started somewhere between my school's winter break in late 1963 and The Ed Sullivan Show broadcast Feb 9, 1964. I know that by then I was definitely hooked on John, Paul, George and Ringo and I still am. This site is dedicated to Beatles fans everywhere, whether you're old enough to remember the first stirrings of Beatlemania or not. Enjoy :-)
