BBCR2 - 1957 - Sounds of the 20th Century

The year is 1957, John and Ringo will be 17 years old, Paul 15 and George 14.
On Saturday July 6th, 1957, at Woolton Parish Church Garden Fete, Liverpool.
a certain Paul McCartney was introduced to John Lennon.

At least seven of the songs included in this show were cover by
The Beatles or solo. This episode is a cracker.

Ayear when Britain gets a new Prime Minister and Russia wins the
space race by launching the first Sputnik. On television, the kids are
watching Six-Five Special; a schoolboy from Esher makes his TV debut
in a skiffle group; and Mum and Dad are baffled by Panorama's
April Fool's Day hoax.

Meanwhile, Jack Jackson is the spinning the platters that matter on
Radio Luxembourg. Elvis is All Shook Up, Tommy Steele is Singing the
Blues and there's a Whole Lotta Shakin Goin' On.
