Beatles Make Radio Debut: WODS Rewind

Matt Dolloff, CBS Radio Boston

On this day in 1962, The Beatles recorded their first-ever radio concert for the BBC, before they even had Ringo Starr on drums! You can hear the entire three-song set right here.

Believe it or not, this concert was the first time the band would wear suits for a performance. That would of course become the norm.

The show was recorded in front of a teenage audience for the BBC show Teenagers’ Turn – Here We Go at the Playhouse Theatre in Manchester. The set contained three covers: Chuck Berry’s “Memphis,” Roy Orbison’s “Dream Baby” and The Marvelettes’ “Please Mr. Postman.”

Check out the classic performance and get a glimpse into the early career of the Beatles in the video below. What’s your earliest memory of The Fab Four?
