The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Wednesday, June 19, 1963

Playhouse Theatre, London

The Beatles were busy! After their June 17th BBC session in London the group drove to Liverpool in time for Paul's 21st birthday party the evening of the 18th, held in a marquee in the back garden of an aunt's house in Huyton. A few hours later they were heading south again, to be back in London in time for their second appearance on the BBC Light Programme radio show Easy Beat, taped in front of a screaming audience at the Playhouse Theatre between 8:45 and 9:45 pm.

The recording, broadcast on Sunday, June 23rd, between 10:31 and 11:30 am, featured the Beatles performing "Some other guy", "A taste of honey", "Thank you, Girl", and "From me to you".
