50th Anniversary Tribute to the Beatles’ First Album

posted by Nell Minow

On Monday 11th February 1963 the Beatles’ debut album was recorded in just one day. On the 50th anniversary of that 12-hour session at Abbey Road, leading artists will attempt the same feat, in the same time period, in the same studio.

Acclaimed guitarist Graham Coxon, Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from Squeeze and Manchester’s I Am Kloot join Joss Stone, The Stereophonics, Gabrielle Aplin and Mick Hucknall for the event.

The results will be broadcast live in the UK in exact recording order and timing, as Abbey Road links up with Western House throughout the day on Radio 2.  Follow along at https://twitter.com/@BBCRadio2 #PleasePleaseMe  If I get an update on broadcast in the US, I’ll post it.
