Pop Chat

July 30th, 1963 was perhaps the busiest day yet in an already hectic summer for The Beatles.

Beginning at 10am, they taped "Please Mr. Postman" and "It Won't Be Long" for their second LP at EMI Studios in London. At 1.30, they grabbed a quick meal and travelled across town to the Playhouse Theatre.

Just after 2.30, they taped a short interview for BBC Radio's Non Stop Pop, chatting with Phil Tate for the show's regular "Pop Chat" feature. The episode was aired on the Light Programme August 30th.

With that out of the way, they recorded six songs and banter with Brian Matthew for their fourth Saturday Club appearance. From 5 to 11pm, it was back at to work at Abbey Road, improving upon "It Won't Be Long" and completing "Till There Was You", "Roll Over Beethoven", and "All My Loving" for the album. All in a day's work for "one of the top recording artists".
