The Beatles On The Scene

Exactly 50 years ago to the very minute, The Beatles arrived at the Piccadilly Studios in London (which belonged to the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) for a rehearsal for the BBC radio show "On The Scene".

A couple of hours later (between 1pm and 2pm) the recorded and performed three songs: Misery (John & Paul), Do You Want to Know a Secret  (George) and Please Please Me (John & Paul)

Exactly one week later (Thursday 28 March 1963 at 5pm) the show was broadcast on the BBC Light Programme service.

p.s. For address hunters: the studios were located at 201 Piccaddilly in London (City of Westminster, W1J, UK)
