About

On this day, The Beatles were awarded their first silver disc, for sales of more than 250,000 copies of their single “Please Please Me”, at a lunchtime ceremony attended by the press and EMI record executives. They received their award from their producer George Martin. During the presentation ceremony, the group gave a private performance and posed for photos.

In January 2022, a recording of “Please Please Me” and “From Me To You” surfaced online. The recording premiered on a Beatles radio show in USA, “Breakfast with The Beatles” with André Gardner. He played it on his final show, a radio show which has been running for 32 years.
