REACH LECTURE SERIES
Brian Rose will present on: Rockin’ TV: Rock & Roll and Television from Elvis to the Monkees. 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. Then, in 1964, the appearance of the Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show 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 program will present a lively survey of the fascinating history of how rock and television grew up together.

  • What happened to my WIFI?
  • How does someone see me on a Zoom call?

The helpline is free and is available in English, Russian, and Spanish. Call 1.888.510.6299 Monday-Friday, 10am-4pm for help. This program is generously funded by the Solomon Family Foundation and the J.E. & Z.B. Butler Foundation.
