The Beatles record their final musical appearance at the BBC

ON THIS DATE (47 YEARS AGO)
May 26, 1965 – The Beatles record their final musical appearance at the BBC.
Just over three years since their first appearance on BBC radio, The Beatles recorded their final musical appearance on this day at Number 1 Studio, Piccadilly Theatre, London. 2:30-6:00pm.
It was their 52nd radio appearance for the corporation, and was broadcast on the BBC Light Programme on 7 June 1965 under the name The Beatles (Invite You To Take A Ticket To Ride) – a change from the usual From Us To You at the group’s insistence, as they felt the old title no longer did justice to their maturing image.
The session took place at the BBC’s Piccadilly Studios in London between 2.30pm and 6pm, including time spent rehearsing. The Beatles recorded seven songs: Ticket To Ride, Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby, I’m A Loser, The Night Before, Honey Don’t, Dizzy Miss Lizzy and She’s A Woman.
The Beatles were also interviewed by the host, Denny Piercy, and there were a number of guests also appearing on the show.
