1959 - The Quarry Men perform at the Casbah Coffee Club, West Derby, Liverpool.
1960 - The Beatles perform at the Indra Club, Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg, West Germany. This will be their final night at the Indra, which is closed by the police when neighbors complain about the noise. The Beatles are moved to Bruno Koschmider's top club, The Kaiserkeller.
1962 - The Beatles perform at the Cavern Club at night.
1963 - The Beatles in the recording studio (Studio Three, EMI Studios, London). George Harrison, not yet returned from a two-week holiday, arrived after the session was over but in time for a radio interview taping in the afternoon. Ringo Starr overdubbed a new vocal for the song "I Wanna Be Your Man". John Lennon and Paul McCartney overdub vocals for the track "Little Child".
1963 - The Beatles tape an interview for the BBC radio program "The Public Ear". Their interview is to be part of a larger program about the 'Mersey Beat' boom. Broadcast on November 3, 1963, and re-broadcast (in revised form) on January 14, 1964, and in late June 1964. An excerpt from this interview is included on the 1994 Beatles double-CD "Live at the BBC" (Disc one, Track one--under the title "Beatle Greetings"). [Note: the booklet that is included with the CD set gives Oct. 9 as the date of the recording of this interview, but Mark Lewisohn and Allen Wiener both report the date as Oct. 3].
