MurrayTheDJ2_560 

"She Loves You" was the first song by The Beatles to be played on the radio  
in the United States. New York City DJ Murray “The K” Kaufman (above) later 
recounted: "In late ’63 they brought a record to me and mentioned the possibility  
that The Beatles might be coming to America, so I said, ‘Okay’, and I put it on the
air”. Murry  became an early supporter and friend of the group. He often referred
to himself as the fifth Beatle.
