Rockin’ TV: Rock & Roll and Television From Elvis to The Monkees with Brian Rose (ZOOM)
Mahwah Public Library at Online - See Event Details

Beginning in the mid-1950s, rock music found a surprising home on mainstream television. Programs hosted by Milton Berle, Steve Allen, and especially Ed Sullivan featured a wide variety of musicians including Bill Haley & the Comets, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, and especially Elvis Presley. Afternoon dance programs like American Bandstand played a role as well in bringing rock to large and eager teenage audiences. The appearance of the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964 would change the face of pop culture, leading to an explosion of televised rock, from the Supremes to the Rolling Stones, for the rest of the decade.

This is a Zoom event so register online (Don’t forget to give us your email address). Registration will close 24 hours before the event and we’ll send you the Zoom meeting number, password, and URL meeting link at that time
