The Beatles In Vancouver!

August 22, 1964… 53 years ago on this date, the The Beatles appeared at Vancouver’s Empire Stadium for their first Canadian concert. I was the MC and it was my job to settle the 20,000 screaming fans down so I could introduce the Beatles. In this 1989 demo for Western International Communications/CKNW you’ll hear concert audio, musical snippets and my memories… including the moment John Lennon told me to “Get the **** off our stage!” Enjoy this piece of musical history!
