    On Friday, 29 November, 1963, the Beatles were in Huddersfield where they were interviewed by Gorden Kaye. This interview was produced for broadcast by several local hospitals in the area. The vendor's father was involved with hospital radio in Huddersfield in the 1960s, and he asked the soundman who worked on the interview to obtain the signatures for his daughter.
