March, 1964 was one of the busiest months in The Beatles' career. They began on March 1st with an EMI recording session, spent the next week on a train filming A Hard Day's Night, continued filming at Twickenham and various locations the rest of the month, appeared on Top Of The Pops and Ready Steady Go!, accepted Variety Club and Carl-Alan awards, sat for TV, print, and radio interviews, and closed out the month recording music for Saturday Club.
In the midst of all this, they found time to record special inserts for BBC Radio's The Public Ear. On March 18th and 19th, George commandeered a tape recorder and interviewed his fellow Fabs as they worked on the film and drove to the Dorchester Hotel to pick up their Variety Club awards. Ringo helped by introducing the show and reading out the credits, Paul joked with George in the back of a limo, and best of all, John treated listeners to a reading of his poem "Alec Speaking". The results were aired March 22nd.
