From the Beatles to Bruce Springsteen, the Four Seasons to John Fogerty, the Mamas & the Papas to Sly & the Family Stone, rock and roll has inspired generations since the 1950s. In 1986 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame was founded to educate visitors, fans and scholars from around the world about the history and continuing significance of rock music. WLIW21 celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Rock Hall and its legendary inductees with two new performance specials that celebrate the songs and artists that transformed popular music forever.
Ed Sullivan’s Rock and Roll Classics – The Sixties focuses exclusively on full-length performances from the famous television series between 1963-1968 that evoke the spirit of the era’s youth movement. “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “She Loves You” from The Beatles’ American TV debut kicks off the special, which also features the Doors’ infamous one-time-only appearance (“Light My Fire”), the Rolling Stones (“(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”), Sly and the Family Stone (“Everyday People” and “Dance to the Music”), the Mamas and the Papas (“California Dreamin’” and “Monday, Monday”), the Beach Boys (“I Get Around” and “Good Vibrations”) and many others.
