    Although this was updated, why does it still show Paul’s birthdate??????? It’s definitely not June 18th, try February 9th, the 46th Anniversary of their first appearance on Ed Sullivan!

      Not sure what you mean. The date this post was published was 18 June 2009 (I updated it today with the date of the ceremony, 8 February, though perhaps I should have left it alone). 18 June, the publication date, is Paul’s birthday, which is why he also appears in the ‘on this day’ list.

      There’s another article, published on 9 February 2010, which lists the Ed Sullivan anniversary.
