Detail : Back in 1964 and early 1965 when British groups first invaded the U.S., every movement they made was reported and photographed for the papers and magazines. A great way of bringing fans in touch with their idols was via the radio interview. Since there was no major T.V. music network, radio was the ideal outlet for fan communication.

The rare Beatles interviews compiled for this album were intended just for this purpose. Beatle fans would listen to the interviews on the air and be incited to go and see the latest Beatle movie.

These interviews were recorded between 24th February - 9th March 1965 during the Bahamas location filming for Help!

The "Hard Day's Night" interviews were originally aired on WGN,
the "Help!" interviews on WFUN.
