The Beatles had toured with Helen Shapiro in the early part of February 1963, but had temporarily dropped out to record the Please Please Me LP and undertake a series of standalone concerts. On this date, however, they rejoined the tour. http://www.beatlesbible.com/1963/02/23/live-granada-cinema-mansfield/

“So began part two of the Helen Shapiro package tour. Before going on stage for the first of two “houses” the Beatles crowded into Helen’s dressing-room and watched their latest appearance on Thank Your Lucky Stars, taped the previous Sunday. Being the headliner, Shapiro had the only TV among the artists.” The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 101

1964: The Beatles attended an all night party at singer Alma Cogan’s Kensington flat the evening after they arrived back in London from America during which neighbors threatened to call for police due to the noise. Jane Asher and Paul McCartney were photographed by the press leaving the party about 4:00 a.m. (Feb. 24). Earlier that day, without even a day off to get over jet-lag, the Beatles had taped an appearance for Mike & Bernie Winters’ variety show Big Night Out before a live audience at ABC TV’s Teddington Studio Centre.

I just came across this and found it very interesting since I grew up listening to this station. It would have been pretty cool if The Beatles first US concert had been here in my area instead of Washington!

Please do not click on any links in this thread that say "multiplusbooks". I just tried to go there and my antivirus went nuts. I think there was some type of trojan horse virus detected. I am going to remove all those links but until I do don't click on them! I apologize for this.
