From the  Shadow of JFK:
The Rise of Beatlemania in America
Monday, Oct. 16, 6:30pm, Community Room
Many Beatles authors have cited JFK's assassination on Nov. 22, 1963 as the cause of the Beatles' sudden popularity in the US in early 1964.  Their logic: Kennedy's assassination made America sad, then the Beatles made America happy again.  But this commonly accepted answer is overly simplistic.  The real answer is that Kennedy's life and death inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles' arrival and success.  Program presented by Aaron Krerowicz.
