The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: April 16, 1965 (Friday)

Studio One, Wembley Studios, Wembley

An appearance on Rediffusion's Ready, Steady, Go! was still one of the best ways for an artist/group to promote the release of a new single. The problem was, the Beatles would no longer appear live on the program and they would no longer pre-tape (as they had done on November 23, 1964). A partial solution was effected this evening, when John and George (only) went along to Rediffusion's Wembley Studios to plug "Ticket To Ride" and be interviewed by show host Cathy McGowan in this live Good Friday broadcast, 6:08-7:00 pm. Among the other guests appearing in this edition was Adam Faith, Doris Troy, the Kinks and Herman Hermits.
