JFK 1964 and Beatle-mania

The Beatles arrive in America at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on February 7, 1964, not long after they made some of the recording that come out on iTunes today.

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday:

  • How many folks started off 2014 with a new job? The Labor Department releases its employment report for January.
  • The Federal Reserve is scheduled to release its monthly Consumer Credit Report for December.  
  • And fifty years ago fans screamed their guts out at John F Kennedy International Airport when The Beatles landed on their first visit to the U.S.
