Debbie Gendler: Beatlemania - 50 Years Ago Today

Posted: Updated:

It will be exactly 50 years to the minute since Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 arrived from London at JFK airport in New York.

It was of course the plane carrying the Beatles to their first trip to America. 3 thousand screaming fans who turned out to watch the boys arrive was our first look at ‘Beatlemania.'

One of the girls screaming in the audience that night was 12 year old Debbie Gendler.  She is the president of the Beatles New Jersey Beatles Fan Club, who may just have been the first American Beatlemaniac.
