Ladies and Gentlemen...The Beatles!!!! (Programs 132 and 133)

Fifty years ago, on February 9, 1964, The Beatles made their debut in America appearing on the Ed Sullivan Show.  Their debut ushered in a change in American musical and cultural tastes.  The 1950s, which lasted longer than the actual decade itself, and which many feel ended with the tragic assassination of President Kennedy at the end of 1963, had come to a close.  The 1960s with all of its radical changes in popular culture had begun.  Here on Galaxy Moonbeam Night Site, we present two programs telling the story of the Beatles and how their debut on American television came to be. Also we look back at those cultural changes and how life as we knew it in the 50s would never be the same again.  Fifty years have come and gone, but the memories linger on.  Join us on Galaxy Moonbeam Night Site for these programs with our guest John Fox.

Remember Jazzing Up Your Bike, and "Customizing" Your Model Cars, and Other Items Around Your Home?

When Police Memorabilia Collectors Are Good All Year, They Get Cool Gifts Like Vintage Two-Way Radios in Their Christmas Stockings!

Here's Mike B. and Galaxy Good Guy Mark Galoustian celebrating the holiday season with Mark's favorite stocking stuffer, a vintage General Electric police radio model used by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in the early to mid 1960s. Mark is the owner of a completely restored 1968 Plymouth Belvedere that is a nearly exact replica of the patrol car used by Officers Reed and Malloy in the Adam 12 television series, which can be seen nowadays on ME-TV. Mark will be sharing his experiences as a police historian and movie/TV car restorer in an upcoming Galaxy Moonbeam Night Site show.
