The session for the Beatle's third consecutive "bank holiday" special on BBC radio's Light Programme, again titled "From Us To You" and broadcast this time on Monday, May 18th, 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.

Recording took place at the Paris Studio in central London between 6:30 and 9:30 pm (inclusive of rehearsal time), and the group taped eight numbers: "I saw her standing there", "Kansas City/"Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!", "I forgot to remember to forget", You can't do that", Sure to fall", Can't buy me love", "Matchbox" and "Honey Don't" (with John singing the lead vocal, not Ringo who would do so on the EMI recording. Once again, the show opened and closed with title music, the adapted version "From me to You" re-taped on February 28th. The Beatles also engaged in the usual light-hearted banter with host Alan Freeman.
