Liverpool-born 1980s-era comedian Alexei Sayle hosts a 30-minute radio special about the Beatles at Christmas this weekend on BBC Radio 4.
In the half-hour radio show, Sayle takes on a musical journey through some of the Fab Four's special Christmas appearances. He meets with former Beatles publicist Tony Barrow to discover how the band recorded their seasonal fan-club messages and how they took to the stage for seasons of Christmas-themed concerts in 1963 and 1964 from supporting musicians such as Elkie Brooks and Barron Knights' bass guitarist Peter Langford. He also hears from film editor Roy Benson about the making of the group's 1967 Christmas TV special Magical Mystery Tour.
The show airs from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm on BBC Radio 4 tomorrow, Friday, December 30, with a repeat on BBC Radio 4 Long-Wave, and can also be heard online worldwide until Monday January 2nd.
