If I say in the front of the show, 'The NBC Orchestra,' people tune-in expecting to see the NBC Orchestra. Now you're going to introduce a band? They'll think some people went home. –There are going to be some people going home very short--Sit down! Get that Mickey Mouse outfit together and have them sit down. Horns up. What're you going to do tonight, Doctor? –Well, we're going to stand around and wait till you guys decide if we're a band or an orchestra. –What would you prefer to be called? –Sweetheart.
Yesterday and today, our theatre's been jammed with newspapermen and hundreds of photographers from all over the nation. And these veterans agree with me that the city never has witnessed the excitement stirred by these youngsters from Liverpool who call themselves 'The Beatles.' Now tonight you're going to be twice entertained by them. Right now, and again in the second half of our show. Ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles!
