  Spencer Leigh in his excellent researched book 'Things Do Go Wrong' on the Saturday Club sessions: "The initial contracts for 'Saturday Club' show that the recordings would be at 7pm on 16 February 1960. However, the running order for the two shows gives a recording date of 23 February 1960. The likelyhood is that there was a last minute switch and the recordings were on the later date."
