March 4th

1961:  Performance at Aintree Institute in Aintree, Liverpool. 

1962: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club

1963: Live: Plaza Ballroom, St Helens
This was The Beatles' fifth and final appearance at the Plaza Ballroom in St Helens, Lancashire. They had first performed there on 25 June 1962. This was the first time The Beatles were paid £100 for a performance. As an indication of how far they had come in less than a year, they were paid just £25 for their first show at the venue. Beatles Bible



1964:  Mixing: I Call Your Name
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1964/03/04/mixing-i-call-your-name/

1964: `Please Please Me' LP, 50th week in the Top 10 (UK New Musical Express chart). `With The Beatles' number 1, 15th week (UK New Musical Express chart). 

1964: Filming: A Hard Day's Night
As on the previous day, The Beatles travelled between Acton, in west London, and Minehead in the west of England, filming more of the train sequences in their debut film A Hard Day's Night. The train stopped briefly at Crowcombe Heathfield Station in Somerset, where The Beatles ran and cycled alongside the slow-moving train to taunt a fellow passenger, played by Richard Vernon. BeatlesBible
A Hard Day's Night Train Ride (Mister, Can We Have Our Ball Back?)


1965: Filming: Help!, the Bahamas
This was the last day of filming on Victoria Beach, Rose Island in the Bahamas, for Help!, The Beatles' second feature film. BeatlesBible

1966: UK EP release: `Yesterday'


1966: John Lennon Interview: London Evening Standard, "More Popular Than Jesus" 3/4/1966:
http://www.beatlesinterviews.org/db1966.0304-beatles-john-lennon-were-more-popular-than-jesus-now-maureen-cleave.html

Maureen Cleave Remembers John Lennon
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/the-beatles/6769205/Nowhere-Boy-Maureen-Cleave-remembers-John-Lennon.html



1967: Michael Bullock is reinstated by Brian as Saville Theatre house manager.  He was fired after the February 19th incident at the Chuck Berry concert.

1969: “It was now almost five weeks since the Get Back recording sessions, in which time, it seems, the Beatles had decided to all but wash their hands of the entire project. One day in early March John and Paul called Glyn Johns into EMI, pointed to a pile of eight-track tapes-the result of those ten January days at Apple- and offered Johns free rein in preparing a finished album. Glyn duly booked time at his favourite venue, Olympic Sound Studios, and set to work.” The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 316

Lewisohn goes on to say that new records uncovered at EMI in 1991 contain different and, he feels, more reliable information about Glyn John’s work on this project than he had offered in his 1988 book The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions. He also comments on the thoroughness of EMI’s records of all The Beatles recording sessions.

1969: Visitors on the set of “The Magic Christian”:
“On Tuesday, March 4, 1969, Princess Margaret made an unscheduled visit to Twickenham Film Studios to watch Ringo Starr and Peter Sellers during the filming of “The Magic Christian”. She remained on the set from 11am until 5pm. Other visitors to the set that day were Paul and Linda McCartney and Mary Hopkin”. ©Bill Harry/Mersey Beat Ltd.
(This was actually a week before their wedding so she was still Linda Eastman.)

1969: Paul and Linda attended the London premiere of the film "Isadora at the Odeon Theatre, London.

March 5th

1961: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club in West Derby, Liverpool. 

1962: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club
Night performance at the Kingsway Club, Southport

1963: It was very confusing trying to find the correct date on which Angus McBean captured the photo that graced the cover of “Please Please Me”. Some sources said it happened in February, some say today and some don’t even venture a guess. I think the confusion stems from the fact that there were two sessions with different photographers in and around EMI in February and March. Both involved stairs. I believe this account may be correct:
http://www.norwegianwood.org/beatles/english/albumcovers.html

The site linked below has the photos from today’s photo session with EMI photographer John Dove, taken outside EMI and then later inside, before and during the recording session. There are two pages and also links to mp3s of the session. These are for download but can also be found on YouTube.

March 6th

1961: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club.
Night performance at the Liverpool Jazz Society, Temple St., Liverpool

“The LJS date marked the Beatles’ first appearance at what had previously been and would eventually re-emerge as the famous Iron Door Club”
The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 41

Taken by Mike McCartney, most likely at the LJS:


1962: Night performance at the Cavern Club

1963: Radio: Here We Go
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/03/06/radio-here-we-go-2/

1964: Filming: A Hard Day's Night
Day five of the filming for A Hard Day's Night, The Beatles' debut feature film. As on the previous three days, the group boarded a train at Acton Main Line in west London, to film railway scenes for the early part of the film. On this day their train travelled between London and Newton Abbot in the county of Devon. BeatlesBible

1966: Paul McCartney and Jane Asher began a skiing vacation today, during which Paul composed “For No One”.
During March 1966, Paul McCartney took a two week ski vacation in Klosters, Switzerland, with his girlfriend, Jane Asher. It was there that he wrote one of his greatest, yet somewhat overlooked, compositions. The evocative lyrics are descriptive of the end of a relationship and the melody, although simple, fits perfectly with the baroque pop style that was coming into play about this time. In The Beatles Anthology book, John Lennon is quoted as saying it was a nice piece of work and called it one of his favorites of Paul’s.

March 7th

1961: Performance at the Casanova Club, Sampson and Barlow's New Ballroom in Liverpool. 

1962: “On March 7 1962 the Beatles entered a BBC studio for the first time. It was the beginning of a long and productive relationship between the group and BBC radio.
Between March 1962 and June 1965 the Beatles appeared on over fifty radio shows and progressed from a group without a record contract to a group with the world at their feet.
In the three years of regular broadcasts for the Beeb, the Beatles performed eighty-eight different songs. Thirty-two of those songs were Lennon-McCartney originals; the others were cover versions-mostly American rhythm and blues songs. Thirty-six  of the songs were never issued on disc by the Beatles.” The Beatles at the Beeb, Kevin Howlett, page 10


The Beatles' first radio session
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1962/03/07/the-beatles-first-radio-session/


The Beatles - Dream Baby ("Teenager's Turn", 7/3/1962)


The Beatles - Memphis, Tennessee ("Teenager's Turn", 7/3/1962)


The Beatles - Please Mister Postman ("Teenager's Turn", 7/3/1962)


http://beatlesource.com/savage/1962/62.03.07%20bbc/62.03.07bbc.html

According to Beatles at the Beeb the band, with Pete Best on drums, also performed “Hello Little Girl”, which was not broadcact.

1963: Live: Mersey Beat Showcase, Nottingham
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/03/07/live-mersey-beat-showcase-nottingham/



“In the audience that night was local lad Rob Taylor, then in his twenties. He reminisced about enjoying the show, but it was an event afterwards that stands out in his mind above everything else:

"When the show had ended I nipped off quickly to the loo before me and my mates left for home. After a while wandering around, I realized I was lost. One of the doors I randomly tried led into a sitting area where I could see some people chatting. When they heard the door open they turned around and I could see that it was the Beatles. It could have been very awkward, me walking in on them like that, but they were very nice about it. They directed me to the toilet and I went on my way." multiplusbooks.com

1964: The Beatles take the weekend off from filming their first movie, "A Hard Day's Night." http://history.absoluteelsewhere.net/March/march7.html

1964: `With The Beatles' number 1, 14th week (UK Record Retailer chart). `I Want To Hold Your Hand' number 1, 6th week, 8th week in the Top 100 (Billboard). `She Loves You', 7th week in the Top 100 (Billboard). `Please Please Me', 6th week in the Top 100 (Billboard). `I Saw Her Standing There', 5th week in the Top 100 (Billboard). `From Me To You', 1st week in the Top 100 (Billboard). 

1964:  Brian Epstein was interviewed today by Bill Grundy for BBC radio. This interview aired on the March 23rd edition of Frankly Speaking.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/mersey/5184.shtml

1965: Filming: Help!, the Bahamas
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1965/03/07/filming-help-13/

1967:   Recording: Lovely Rita
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1967/03/07/recording-lovely-rita-2/

1967:  Broadcast of Paul McCartney’s interview on the British television program, "So Far Out It's Straight Down".  This was filmed on January 18th.

1970:  `Live Peace In Toronto', 9th week in the ranking (Billboard). `Instant Karma! (We All Shine On)', 3rd week in the ranking (Billboard). 

1982:  “On 7 March 1982, Radio One celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the first Beatles’ radio broadcast with a special programme called “The Beatles at the Beeb”. Many songs, not available on disc but recorded by the BBC, were aired for the first time since the early sixties”. Howlett, page 10

I was hoping they would repeat this tomorrow and put it on their website but I have been unable to find any information suggesting they are:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00mc0c5


1988:  CDs release: `The Beatles Past Masters, Volume One', `The Beatles Past Masters, Volume Two'.

March 11th

1961: The Beatles performed the “Beatles Farewell Show” at Aintree Institute in Aintree, Liverpool with the Night Boppers, Ray and the Del Renas, the Cliff Roberts Rockers and the Ravens. Then they performed at the Liverpool Jazz Society in Liverpool with Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Remo Four, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, the Big Three, Dale Roberts and the Jaywalkers, Derry and the Seniors, Ray and the Del Renas, the Pressman, Johnny Rocco and the Jets, and Faron and the Tempest Tornadoes. 

“The LJS engagement was a true innovation on the part of Sam Leach, certainly the most adventurous and ambitious rock dance promoter in the Merseyside area: a 12-group, 12-hour, all-night session, commencing at 8.00 Saturday night and finishing at 8.00 Sunday morning…..Although the attendance capacity of the Temple Street cellar was 1000, approximately 2000 people saw at least some part of the show. Leach was to hold similar marathon “Big Beat Sessions” over the next two years at several different venues, most (although not all) of which featured the Beatles as the main attraction.” The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 41


1963: EMI House, ground floor studio. Recording for Radio Luxembourg's `The Friday Spectacular'. 

The Beatles' UK tour with Tommy Roe and Chris Montez had a rest day on 10 and 11 March 1963. On this second day, however, the group made an appearance - their fourth and final one - on the Radio Luxembourg show The Friday Spectacular. The group was interviewed at EMI House in London's Manchester Square. The studio versions of Please Please Me and Ask Me Why were played in between sections of interview, and the show was broadcast from 10pm on 15 March. BeatlesBible.com

1963: Brian Epstein's letter to Stowe schoolboy David Moores:

BE/J/BA:

11th March 1963


Dear David,

Thank you for your recent letter, enclosing £1. 10. 6 for the BEATLES L.P. Record; I am enclosing your receipt and, as soon as the record is available, a copy will be sent to you.

We have today written to the Green Man Hotel at Syresham to see if they can accommodate the group and, if this is possible, it would be appreciated if you could show them the way; after which they will take you back to school.

With regard to autographs, the boys will be very pleased to sign these for you during the time they are at the [?]

Looking forward to seeing you.

Yours sincerely,
Brian Epstein.

1964: Filming: A Hard Day's Night
This was The Beatles' first day in Twickenham Film Studios, where they would later shoot Help!, Let It Be and a number of promotional videos and solo projects. On this day The Beatles worked from 8am to 10pm, filming the I Should Have Known Better sequence. A set was built to resemble a train guard's van, which was rocked while The Beatles mimed to the song. At one point, however, director Richard Lester had to stop the shoot because the technicians were rocking the set in time with the song.

Paul McCartney marries Linda Eastman at Marylebone Register Office. Paul's brother Mike is best man, Mal Evans is a witness, and Linda's daughter, Heather, is flower girl. Magistrate E.R. Sanders performs the ceremony, which is followed by a luncheon at the Ritz Hotel. None of the other Beatles or family members are in attendance (they weren't invited). A throng of crying female fans waited outside for the newlywed couple to make their way to their car. (The fact that Paul was no longer a bachelor was not well-received at the time.)

1958: Performance by the Quarrey Men at the Morgue Skiffle Cellar, Oakhill Park, Broadgreen, Liverpool

This was opening night for the short-lived venue run by 18 year old Alan Caldwell. He and his group, the Texans, as well as several other local groups were on the bill. This dark, airless club closed by April 22nd but Alan Williams’ Beatles connection didn’t end there. The following year Ringo Starr joined the band which later became known as Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. They went on to play with The Beatles at the Kaiserkeller in Hamburg, Germany. And then there’s Alan’s sister Iris, who dated both George and Paul. ;) (ML)

March 15th

1961: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club
Afternoon performance at the Liverpool Jazz Society

After the Beatles’ lunchtime spot at the Cavern Club (12.00 noon-1:00 pm on this occasion), they shifted their equipment over Victoria Street and into the Liverpool Jazz Society for a five-hour afternoon session alternating with Rory Storm and the Wild Ones (Rory plus assorted guest musicians) and Gerry and the Pacemakers. The Beatles’ first appearance was at 2:00 pm.
The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 42

1962: Lunchtime performance at the Cavern Club
Night performance at the Storyville Jazz Club, Liverpool (formerly known as the Liverpool Jazz Club) This was their last performance there before their April return to Hamburg:

The Beatles' final performance was on March 15, 1962 which was dubbed the "Beatles' Farewell Party." Sue Shead remembers

"We were in the coffee bar area on the evening the Beatles were given the "Freedom of the City." Everyone was rushing out to Dale Street to see them going past. But we were upset with them, as they'd recently relocated to the London area and we figured we were their original fans and their "roots" so we stayed put. The year before, we'd queued all night outside the Empire to get tickets to see them. How fickle."
http://www.rickresource.com/irondoorclub/irondoorclub3.html

1963:   `Please Please Me' single number 1, 4th and last week (UK New Musical Express chart). 

1963:  Colston Hall, Colston St., Bristol
John resumed performing with the Roe/Montez tour. I wonder if he caught that cold from Helen Shapiro?


1964:  Day 2 of “The Beatles: Direct From Their First American Concert”

The following day, on Sunday, March 15, 1964, the show went out again to a number of locations, including: the Norva Theater in Norfolk, Virginia; Lake Theater in Oak Park, Illinois; Fox Theater in San Jose, California; and the Washington Coliseum in Washington, D.C. The Lyric Theater in Indianapolis, Indiana also received the show on March 14th and March 15th, as did a big screen theater at the State Fair Coliseum in Dallas, Texas.The total audience for the special closed-circuit broad- casts of the Beatles’ concert film was expected to exceed 500,000. The shows were seen in more than 100 theaters in the U.S. and Canada. The promoters – identified in advertising as the National General Corporation, or their subsidiary, Theater Color Vision — made millions. One 1964 estimate placed the take at some $4 million, or roughly $30 million in today’s money. This Beatles’ concert showing was apparently the first use of closed-circuit broadcasting for a rock concert, as previously this closed-circuit theater network had been used only for championship boxing matches.

1965: The Beatles filming "Help!" in Austria: this day and the next spent shooting various scenes cavorting in the snow and on a ski lift.
http://history.absoluteelsewhere.net/March/march15.html

1965:  Studio 2 (control room only). 10.00-11.00am. Mono mixing: `Ticket To Ride' (remix 2, from take 2). Producer: not assigned; Engineer: Norman Smith; 2nd Engineer: unknown. Mix of `Ticket To Ride' for United Artists. 

1966: The Beatles fail to win any Grammy Awards
http://www.beatlesbible.com/1966/03/15/the-beatles-fail-to-win-any-grammy-awards/

1967:  Studio 2. 7.00pm-1.30am. Recording: `Untitled' (working title of `Within You Without You') (take 1). Producer: George Martin; Engineer: Geoff Emerick; 2nd Engineer: Richard Lush. Visit at the studio: Peter Blake. 

1968: In Rishikesh, The Beatles serenade Beach Boy Mike Love with a specially composed ditty Happy Birthday, Michael Love, which is preceded by another impromptu tune called Spiritual Regeneration. These acoustic performances are preserved on tape. By now, the mood of The Beatles at the Maharishi’s ashram is turning restless: Ringo Starr is missing his home cooking, and John Lennon is starting to find that the clearing of his mind, induced by meditation, is leading as often to cynicism as to inner peace.

March 18th

1962: Performance at the Casbah Coffee Club, West Derby, Liverpool

1963:  Concert at the Regal Cinema, Gloucester, Gloucestershire (Chris Montez and Tommy Roe tour). 





From the tour; not sure of the exact date:


http://wogew.blogspot.com/2009/01/montezroe-tour-march-1963.html

1964:  `Please Please Me' LP, 52nd week in the Top 10 (UK New Musical Express chart). `With The Beatles' number 1, 17th week (UK New Musical Express chart). 

1964:  Filming: A Hard Day's Night
Day 13 of the shoot for A Hard Day's Night took The Beatles back to Twickenham Film Studios, where they filmed the dressing room sequences.

1964: Public Ear Interview
During a day of filming at Twickenham, The Beatles used some of their time off from filming to record a number of items for the BBC radio program The Public Ear, to be broadcast from 3:00 to 4:00 PM on March 22, 1964. It was also broadcast on the British Forces Broadcasting Service at the same time in West Germany. The Beatles interviewed themselves, instead of having a BBC announcer do so. The program opened with a letter being read from a fan, who suggested that listeners be told in advance were The Beatles to appear on the program, so fans could contact each other and let each other know to tune in. After reading this letter, Ringo announced "We're on today, later on, so don't forget, get on the phone and get your friends listening!" When The Beatles actually did appear on the program later on, George interviewed the other Beatles, faking a plum accent and discussing John's book, In His Own Write, first with Ringo, and then with John. John then read an excerpt from his book, the poem 'Alec Speaking.' George then talked about the film A Hard Day's Night with Paul, then being joined by Ringo, who read the cast and production credits. He credited themselves as producers, along with the real incumbent, John Fawcett Wilson. http://www.beatleswiki.org/wiki/Recording_for_The_Public_Ear_-_March_18,_1964 Source LEWISOHN M., 1992, The Complete Beatles Chronicle
