"Pop Go The Beatles" episode number Six.

On the tenth of July 1963, The Beatles recorded a radio show in London for the BBC. The studio used was Studio Five, Maida Vale. The host for this programme was Rodney Burke.
Once again, The Beatles performed a few songs that they would never officially release for EMI and all of which are commercially available as of the mid 90s.
The first song in the show is "Sweet Little Sixteen" sung by John followed by "A Taste Of Honey" (sung by Paul) from the first LP. Next up is a George vocal on the slightly obscure "Nothin' Shakin' (But the Leaves on the Trees)", a rock-a-billy number. The Beatles' first A-side single is then performed "Love Me Do" with Paul on vocal. Following this, a Johnny Burnette number is played with a John vocal "Lonesome Tears In My Eyes" with triple guitar strumming later used by John on his own composition "The Ballad of John and Yoko".  Lastly, an Everly Brothers tune is next in the form of "So How Come (No One Loves Me)" sung by John and George in harmony.
All of the above songs have been bootlegged on various discs over the years including "Yellow Matter Custard", "Young Blood", "Airtime", etc. They were eventually all pulled together on the excellent LP "The Beatles At the Beeb, Volume Four" and also on the Gread Dane CD box set "The Complete BBC Collection".
All of the above tunes were released commercially on Apple's 2-LP/2-CD "Live At the BBC".
