The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Saturday, March 16, 1963-

Studio 3A, Broadcasting House, Portland PI, London and City Hall, Sheffield

Owing to their Radio Luxembourg commitment, and John's cold, the Beatle's had been forced to cancel the March 11th session for this day's BBC Light Programme Radio Show "Saturday Club" (recording had been arranged for the Playhouse Theatre in London between 5:30 and 6:30 pm)

Instead, they made their contribution live from Broadcasting House, the central London HQ of domestic BBC radio. The group arrived by taxi in time for a 9:00 am rehearsal and then performed six songs live, "I saw her standing there", "Misery", Too Much Monkey Business", "I'm talking about You", "Please Please Me", and "The Hippy Hippy Shake".

After the programming was over, the Beatles sped 158 miles north in order to be at the City Hall in Sheffield in time for the first Roe/Montez tour "house" at 6:10 pm.

Studio Two, EMI Studios, London and Rialto Theatre, York

The Beatles traveled from Bedford to York for this evening's two Roe/Montez "house" via EMI Studios in London, where they participated in a 10:00 am to 1:00 pm harmonica over-dubbing session for "Thank You Girl", recording takes 14-28. When finished, the song was edited and then mixed into mono and stereo. It was just as well that no vocals were required, since John was voiceless and didn't play at York.

The Roe/Montez tour. This was a three-man Beatles performance because a bad cold kept John in bed. The songs, particularly "Please please me", were re-arranged so that George and Paul could take over his vocal lines.
