"Pop Go The Beatles" episode 13

On September 03 1963, The Beatles arrived at Studio Two in the Aeolian Hall in London England in order to record three (yes, three !!) episodes for the BBC radio service.
The first one was episode 13 and this particular show would feature host Rodney Burke (as would the other two). All episodes were recorded at the same venue and produced by Ian Grant. Eventually, the show would be aired one week later on September 10 1963 at the 5 o'clock hour (afternoon).
The songs performed at this taping included John's vocal on the cover "Too Much Monkey Business" and this is followed by a performance of the very first original single "Love Me Do".  The next performance consists of the latest single with the Beatles playing both sides: "She Loves You" followed by "I'll Get You". A slower number from the first LP is next with a cover of "A Taste Of Honey" sung by Paul. The show ends on an upbeat number with Paul singing a cover version of "Hippy Hippy Shake".
All of these tunes can be heard on the bootleg LP "The Beatles At The Beeb, Volume Six" as well as CD-5 from the Great Dane box set: "The Complete BBC Sessions". Lastly, note that "Too Much Monkey Business" from this show is found commercially on the Apple 2-LP/2-CD release "Live At the BBC".
