BeatlesAs the world prepares to mark the weekend’s 50th anniversary of the Beatles visit to New York City and appearance on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” one former well-known Connecticut disc jockey is remembering it better than most of us.

Former WDRC personality and founder/chairman of the Ct School of Broadcasting, Dick “Dicky” Robinson (on the right holding microphone) , was one of a handful of select broadcasters invited to attend the Beatles’ press conference at the St. George Hotel in New York in 1964.

After the press conference, he also met privately with the Fab Four. Also shown in the picture taken that day are Ed Sullivan and his recording crew, Movie Tone News reps, and Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ manager, shown in the photo’s background.
