Radio: Pop Profile

The day after The Beatles were interviewed by BBC presenter Brian Matthew for Saturday Club, John Lennon and George Harrison again spoke to him for another radio show, Pop Profile.

The interviews took place separately at NEMS Enterprises’ offices on Argyll Street in London. Harrison’s was the first to take place, from 4.30-4.45pm. Lennon’s interview began from 5pm and also lasted 15 minutes.

Each interview was edited to approximately eight minutes, and in March 1966 were distributed overseas by the BBC Transcription Service on 7″ singles. The recordings were not broadcast in the United Kingdom.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr gave similar interviews to Pop Profile on 2 May 1966.
