  • In this episode Raquel Welch hosts, Phoebe Snow and John Sebastian sing and Lorne Michaels makes his famous (and ultimately unsuccessful) offer to The Beatles to reunite for $3000.

    This is probably the most memorable episode of the first season of "Saturday Night Live" (Aside from the premiere episode of course) mainly because of Lorne Michael's offer to The Beatles. It definitely was the highlight of the episode. It would have been even better if Lorne's offer were successful. Lorne's offer to The Beatles was not the only highlight of this episode however. There are a number of excellent sketches featured. The best being "The Claudine Longet Invitational." That sketch will have you laughing every time you see it. Another great sketch is Dan Akroyd explaining the "Decibet." Terrific.
