The Beatles on Radio Luxemburg

50 years ago on Monday 11 March 1963, The Beatles appeared on the Radio Luxembourg show called "The Friday Spectacular". I don't really understand why it would be transmitted on a Monday, but that's life. Maybe somebody out there knows the answer.

In this period The Beatles were appearing on stage during the a UK show with Tommy Roe ('Sheila' , 'Dizzy') and Chris Montez ('Let's Dance').

The Beatles had a day-off on 11 March 1963 and they appeared on The Friday Spectacular. They did not go to Luxembourg, mind you, no they went to EMI House in London where the interview was recorded. In between the radio station played Please Please Me and Ask Me Why.
