The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: July 31, 1967

Radio London, Curzon Street, London

The Beatles' support for pirate radio didn't waver rights to the end of the golden era. Radio London closed forever on Saturday, August 5th, 1967. Today, six days earlier, Ringo popped along to the station's central London office at 17 Curson St. and recorded a brief farewell message, on behalf of all the Beatles, with the company's managing director Philip Birch. It was broadcast on London's last day.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney return to England from Greece

John, Cynthia and Julian Lennon, Paul McCartney, Jane Asher, Alexis "Magic Alex" Mardas and Pattie Harrison's sister Paula Boyd all returned to England from Greece on this day.

They had been in Greece to visit an island which they intended to purchase. However, the plans came to nothing as The Beatles' interest in living in the Mediterranean waned.

The party flew to London Airport from Athens. George and Pattie Harrison had returned the previous day.
