Radio: The Friday Spectacular

The Beatles’ UK tour with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez had a rest day on 10 and 11 March 1963. On this second day, however, the group made an appearance – their fourth and final one – on the Radio Luxembourg show The Friday Spectacular.

The group was interviewed at EMI House in London’s Manchester Square. The studio versions of ‘Please Please Me’ and ‘Ask Me Why’ were played in between sections of interview, and the show was broadcast from 10pm on 15 March.
