Lost Beatles interview to air on BBC radio
I spent the last ten minutes failing to dream up a Beatles-lyric headline for this story (left on the cutting room floor: "I should have known better that the Beatles hadn't finished releasing new material"). Post a comment if you think of a good one.
The British Broadcasting Corp. will air a long lost Beatles interview featuring John Lennon and Paul McCartney talking about the day they met and their songwriting partnership.
The precious film sat forgotten for 44 years in a garage in south London until film fan Richard Jeffs realized a piece of pop history was contained inside.
Experts were surprised to find the audio portion still usable for radio broadcast.
Clips of a Scottish TV interview with the Beatles have been recovered after being forgotten for 44 years in a rusty film can in a garage in South London. It was stacked among 64 other unmarked cans and presumed lost. In the interview, recorded back in April 30th, 1964, John Lennon and Paul McCartney talk about the first time they met and how they record songs.
"Normally we try to sit down and bash things out," McCartney explains in the interview.
