In this episode, we discuss the Beatles' trip to Australia and New Zealand in 1964, covering such things as: Jimmy Nicol, rainy weather standing in clothes from Hong Kong, press conferences, and the setlist from the filmed gig in Melbourne. This was at a high point of Beatlemania, where the group was in good spirits and playing well, and the fans all came out for the shows.

Thanks to our listeners in Australia and New Zealand who helped with information about these gigs! 

Here's a great performance of the Melbourne gig that we discuss:
