BBC wants Beatles reminiscences

Lots of Beatles action on the BBC soon.
Great deals on musical instruments
The BBC wants reminiscences related to the electric guitars band The Beatles.

These memories are set to be aired as part of My Beatles Story days, which will be happening across local radio stations next month.

Meanwhile, Love Me Do – 1962, a BBC Four documentary hosted by Stuart Maconie, is set to air on October 4th, and Radio 2 have got a Beatles Season lined up from October 3rd onwards.

All this comes as the anniversary of the group's first single to reach the top 20 rolls around. The track to have that honour was Love Me Do.

The single's release was on October 5th 1962 – a mere five decades in the past. October 5th is, not coincidentally, My Beatles Story day for local stations.

The Beatles are famous for a large number of songs, including Yesterday, From Me To You and Yellow Submarine.

In fact, a survey commissioned by the BBC is gathering 12,000 people's opinion on which is their favourite song by the band.
