Beatlemania is Still Sweeping the Nation

Posted: Updated:

Its been 50 years since The Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and Beatlemania is still sweeping the nation.

Rhythm Records sees fans young and old come into their store to buy Beatles albums -- the most popular is the White Album.

Manager Richard Loewen says that they are a go-to for collectors and just one of those bands that people bond over.

 "It spreads across the board for different ages. Not to mention how many more contemporary artists are influenced by the Beatles. It just never stops and its a good thing," said Richard Loewen, Rhythm Records manager.

 Last night fans had the chance to listen to their favorite songs during a televised music special honoring The Beatles.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr were among the performers.

 "I thought it was a really cool way that old and young and all styles of music were represented. It shows how powerful the Beatles music was. It transcends all genres," said David Augustadt, Wachter Middle School band director.

 Augustadt says even his 4 year old daughter got excited about The Beatles during the performance.
