A "Saturday Club" radio performance

The Beatles were back at the BBC on March 16 1963 in order to plug the lastest music from the debut LP as well as the new single plus other covers. The location for the performance was at the BBC Broadcasting Place in London.
The "Saturday Club" performance starts with two songs from the LP : "I Saw Her Standing There" (shortened for this performance) and "Misery". This is followed by two covers originally written and recorded by Chuck Berry: "Too Much Monkey Business" and "I'm Talking About You" (both numbers sung by John Lennon). The Beatles finish up by playing their single "Please Please Me" followed by a cover version of "The Hippy Hippy Shake" sung by Paul.
All of these can be found on the Great Dane box set "The Complete BBC Sessions". The host for this radio show was Brian Matthews who conducts interviews with the band.
