The Fab British Rock 'N' Roll Invasion of 1964
Come and hear about the people and events who brought forth one of the most exciting times in rock & roll history: the British Rock invasion of America in the early 1960s. You'll hear how it all began and soon dominated the nation's radio and television airwaves for the greater part of that decade. You'll hear examples of the recordings of many who paved the way including stories and anecdotes of groups and individuals including the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Herman's Hermits. You'll also hear some rare studio outtakes of some of these artists as they created what later would become their well-known and loved masterpieces.
