I Read the News Today, Oh Boy

April 18, 1963

A new informal partnership is well along in development.  Virtually all radio in the UK is provided by the official British Broadcasting Company.  Users are required to pay an annual license fee that is used to produce content, whether for TV or radio.  The Beatles are showing up more and more often on the Light Program, which is where the more popular and less "serious" content is broadcast.

Today, the Beatles appear in the show that is broadcast live from the Albert Hall. It's the first time they play there.  They spend the entire day cooped up in a dressing room, waiting for their chance to go on at 8pm and later at 10.

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill it
An exceptionally pretty young actress is recruited by the Radio Times to produce an interview for their paper, an obligation she fulfills at the Albert Hall gig today.  She has strawberry blond hair, georgeous blue eyes and a lovely peaches and cream complexion.  She is just 17 at the time.  Her name is Jane Asher   (Be still my beating heart!)
