Beach Boys Britain
Re(4): The Beach Boys in Westbury, Long Island, NY, April 2, 2017

Interesting about Ricky Nelson - some of us watched Ozzie and Harriet just to watch Ricky. He had his own built-in platform that was probably unique for that era - who else, outside of Lucy/Desi had a built-in platform to disseminate their kids' music?

But, I see the difference between Ozzie and Harriet and the Ed Sullivan, is that Ed Sullivan had a platform of a variety of entertainment while Ozzie and Harriet's was incidental to the show as were The Beach Boys on Full House. And Ricky Nelson got to perform quite a lot at the end of the shows - especially once he was older and getting more established.
