The Beatles’ fourth appearance on the BBC’s Saturday Club radio show was recorded on this day at the Playhouse Theatre in London.
Rehearsals began at 2.30pm, and the session was recorded from 5.30-6.30pm. The Beatles performed six songs: I Got To Find My Baby, Memphis, Tennessee, Money (That’s What I Want), Till There Was You, From Me To You and Roll Over Beethoven.
The two-hour programme was broadcast on the BBC Light Programme service from 10am on Saturday 29 June 1963. None of the songs performed were included on the 1994 collection Live At The BBC, although the full session has circulated as bootleg recordings.
