March 7, 1962 - Teenager's Turn (Here We Go) - The Beatles' First BBC Radio Session

The Beatles' first concert performance for the BBC interestingly showed how little faith they had in their own material at this point. Of the four songs they played with Pete Best still on drums, three were covers and their lone original ("Hello Little Girl") was never aired. The show, historical value aside, is worth hearing if only for Roy Orbison's "Dream Baby," which is the only known Beatles recording of the song to have surfaced.

1. Hello Little Girl (unaired)

2. Memphis, Tennessee:

3. Dream Baby (How Long Must I Dream):

4. Please Mister Postman:
