How Music Changed

    We did a series of shows on what music was like in England before the British Invasion. Now, the time has come to cover the real McCoy – what America was like during the British Invasion.

    It’s hard to understand just how much of a cultural shift this part of history represented, but from a musical standpoint, entire careers were either revived or derailed, depending on what side of the coin (or “the pond”) you were on. It was an amazing time, and it signaled a virtual rebirth for rock and roll music.

    Here are the tracks covered in this program;

    1) I Want to Hold Your Hand – The Beatles

    2) She Loves You – The Beatles

    3) I Saw Her Standing There – The Beatles

    4) It’s All in the Game – Cliff Richard

    5) Please Please Me – The Beatles
