In 1964, Ed Rudy was the only American news reporter to travel with The Beatles on their entire first US visit, from the day they landed in America on February 7th, 1964 to their first American concert tour in August. Ed was there in New York, Washington DC, Miami and all the cities on the tour.

Ed had exclusive access to The Beatles, Brian Epstein, Mal Evans, Neil Aspinal and everyone in The Beatles entourage. He interviewed them for the 440 radio stations that carried Ed Rudy Reports on Radio Pulsebeat News. Documentary albums of these interviews were released on LP in 1964 and 1965 and lit up the charts immediately. Now Ed Rudy’s historic Beatle interview albums from the days of Beatlemania have been remastered on CD and you can own this bit of history.
