Radio: Easy Beat

The Beatles’ second appearance on the BBC radio show Easy Beat necessitated a rush back to London following Paul McCartney’s 21st birthday celebrations.

The show was recorded on 19 June 1963 in front of an audience of screaming fans at London’s Playhouse Theatre between 8.45 and 9.45pm. It was broadcast on the BBC Light Programme from 10.30am on Sunday 23 June.

The Beatles performed four songs: ‘Some Other Guy’, ‘A Taste Of Honey’, ‘Thank You Girl’ and ‘From Me To You’.
