50 Years Ago: The Beatles Hit U.S. Airwaves

On Dec. 17, 1963, the U.S. still had no idea what was in store. The Beatles had yet to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show where they seemingly overnight changed the landscape of pop music forever. That wouldn't occur until February 1964. However on a mid-December day in 1963, Carroll James of WWDC in Washington, DC played a Beatles record.

Six Years Ago: Led Zeppelin Reunite for 02 Concert

The past six years have been incredibly fruitful for Led Zeppelin after decades of inactivity. Recently, the hard rock icons have announced a new reissue campaign, received the Kennedy Center Honors, and released the live CD/DVD package, 'Celebration Day,' which features the band's heavily anticipated reunion performance at the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert on Dec. 10, 2007.
