Sock It To 'Em, Johnny!

Apple Records was launched in America with a blaze of publicity from Lennon and McCartney. In May 1968, they flew to New York City to give interviews to local and national reporters, and to appear on public TV and NBC's Tonight Show. On the 14th, they held a press conference at the Americana Hotel, with Apple's new spokesman Derek Taylor fielding questions.

Here is a composite recording of the event, from newsreels and WABC radio's coverage.
