When the Beatles were the competition

Got a note from Cal Fankhauser, who read today's Slice column.

"Hi, Paul. Thinking back about that time a half century ago when the Fab Four made their first appearance in the U.S., it was open house day at the just-opened new digs for KHQ on Moran Prairie. We were NBC, but the host employees just had to join the world in watching the Beatles on CBS.

"I'll never forget the scowl on General Manager Birney Blair's face when he saw our people watching the competition channel."
