"Pop Go The Beatles" Episode Four

Another radio performance for the BBC, this time recorded on June 17 1963 in Studio 5, Maida Vale Studios in London, England. The host for this particular show is Lee Peters.
The musical numbers for this show all stem from the current Beatles' LP at the time "Please Please Me" and they are broadcast in the same order as heard on the LP. This is not unusual when one hears the other shows as the band was prone to promote the lastest offering; usually the new single and it's B-side.
The show starts with the original tune "I Saw Her Standing There" with Paul on vocal. The next number features John on the cover "Anna (Go To Him)". The next song features Ringo on vocal and is a cover of "Boys". George is featured next on the cover of "Chains". An original number is next featured and the B-side to the first single "P.S. I Love You" sung by Paul. Lastly, the closing number being the excellent cover "Twist And Shout" screamed by John. :)
The show can be heard on the LP "The Beatles At The Beeb, Volume Three" and also on the usual CD box Set: "The Complete BBC Sessions".
