46 Years Ago Today : The Beatles in San Diego

46 Years Ago Today: The Beatles in San Diego 8-28-1965

Area DJ "Happy Hare" (aka Harry Martin) recalled for Kicks Magazine that "Joan Baez was going to visit John Lennon [backstage], and she was caught up in the human riptide, because she was on the outside of the fence with all the kids. I literally lifted her up and pushed her over the fence. She eventually got backstage, but she came close to being crushed to death." Around 150 San Diego cops were on hand to help give peace a chance."We had limited problems," San Diego Police Chief Ray Hoobler told the San Diego Union in 1984. "I remember one youngster scaled the fence and ran out onto the playing field, and Officer Rufino Yaptangco made one of the finest open field tackles I've ever seen...the noise was damned near debilitating. It was bedlam."

The picture of the girls presenting The Beatles the key to the city is so cute. They look kind of stunned...with good reason!
