Radio Lux and the Midlands

November 16-17, 1962

The Beatles get back to promoting their record on the English side of the Channel.  They journey to EMI House in London and record an interview and live versions of both sides of their record "Love Me Do" and "P.S. I Love You".  It is to be broadcast on November 23.  They are striking while the iron is hot!

On the 17th, the push into the English Midlands, playing a date in Coventry, Warwickshire.  It's their first real show after their return from Germany and Paul McCartney remembers it seven years later as "the worst first night ever", proof that even they are not immune to things going south.

They are still playing the small, crowded, basement Cavern when there's nothing else on offer many times a week.
