The Beach Boys' first UK TV appearance, November 6, 1964.
Following afternoon rehearsals, their performance of 'I Get Around' and 'When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)' - complete with false start - is transmitted live this evening. The show's co-host Keith Fordyce asks Mike about surfing and Brian about his thoughts on Britain, but questions and replies are drowned out by hysterical screams from the studio audience. This performance becomes the first chance that TV viewers in the UK have to see the group in action. Brian tells Earl Leaf: "Ready Steady Go! was a blast! But they pulled Mike into the crowd off camera, which was kind of stupid."
