          The Beatles must have only just heard and learnt to play the song as it didn't enter the UK singles chart (at #28) until a week after their radio performance. It eventually made it up to #2.

            Yeah, it had just been released Feb. 10th! So they had 4 weeks to learn it before the radio show.

              They had more time then than I thought but they still picked up on it pretty quickly.
