Steppin' Out At The Playhouse

On the same day as the previous post, May 21 1963, The Beatles performed live in front of an audience at the Playhouse Theatre in London. I suppose all of their equipment was left at the theatre for the afternoon since the "Saturday Club" recording was done in the morning and this performance was later in the evening.
The live set was broadcast on the BBD on a show entitled "Steppin' Out" and the Beatles were introduced by a BBC lad named Diz Disley (LOL). Anyway, some of the songs performed that evening included "Twist and Shout", "Roll Over Beethoven", "Thank You Girl", "From Me To You", "Please Please Me" and "I Saw Her Standing There".
Only the last two songs are available for your listening pleasure on bootleg: the vinyl LP version being the Transcription series "The Beatles At The Beeb, Volume One" and on CD as "The Complete BBC Sessions" box set as the last two songs on CD 1.
