Ed Sullivan and Lucille Ball evolved television into a new form of entertainment. Also because of TV, certain major events took a different course of action, such as the Civil Rights Movement. “The Ed Sullivan Show aired from 1948 to 1971 and changed the landscape of American television.” (History of the Ed Sullivan Show) Without the Ed Sullivan Show, talk shows such as Jimmy Fallon, Conan, and the The Daily Show would not be where they are today. Although Ed was not quite as charming on screen as Jimmy Fallon, his rating skyrocketed due to the live performances and famous guests he interviewed. I have never watched the Ed Sullivan Show, but the talk shows that are aired now bring a new light to entertainment and connecting with

In June 1964, the band rolled into America to perform concerts and to record at Chess Studios in Chicago as well as the Hollywood RCA Studios, where they captured the vibrant, earthy sound they desired due to better acoustics” (Schwartz 14).
Right now, there was a remix I made from a song I heard on the radio a long time ago. It was a classic, one that wouldn’t be easily forgotten, at least with me anyway. When that track was done, I swiftly switched records, this time for a heavier, deeper, and intenser bass tune to it.
