Beatles Offer 2
Lorne Michaels: Hi, I'm Lorne Michaels, producer of Saturday Night. A short while ago I went on the air and addressed myself to John, Paul, George and Ringo - the Beatles. At that time I invited them to come on our show, and told them that I was authorized by NBC to pay them in the sum of three thousand dollars. That was three thousand dollars for just three songs. Well about a month has gone by. We've heard from the Monkees, Freddy and teh Dreamers, Peter and Gordon, Herman's Hermits, the Cowsills and Lulu; but still no word from the Beatles. . . .
