LONDON – A BBC program to air on TV and radio will see artists including The Stereophonics and Mick Hucknall attempt to rerecord The Beatles’ Please Please Me album at Abbey Road Studios.
Marking the album’s 50th anniversary, the acts will have just 12 hours to complete the work, mirroring the marathon single session that resulted in The Beatles’ debut album.
The musicians will use the same studio, with all the tracks recorded in order for the event scheduled for Feb. 11 to be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2.
The event also will be filmed for a BBC Four special called 12 Hours to Please Me, scheduled to air Feb. 15 in the U.K.
