BBC Radio Sessions

Starting off in October 1963, the Rolling Stones recorded some 13 sessions for various BBC radio shows (Saturday Club, Blues In Rhythm, the Joe Loss Show, and Top Gear), the last one being in September 1965. During these sessions the band taped about 50 songs, but surprisingly Ian Stewart, even if he wasn't visible, played on only three of them.

In between June 1964's "You Can Make It If You Try" and September 1965's "Fanny Mae" (both recordings for the Saturday Club show), Stu performed in real boogie woogie style on "Down The Road Apiece", a live studio recording for the March 1965 Top Gear show, with host Brian Matthew.
