'Madness' around Beatles overshadowed Apple Records


Peter Asher, who ran the label Apple Records for The Beatles, has said the madness of the time and the way business disagreements manifested themselves overshadowed the records the label put out.

He told BBC Radio 4's Front Row the label's first single was the band's Hey Jude, but when the company began to get successful, The Beatles were breaking up.

BBC Radio 4's Front Row is broadcast weekdays at 1915 BST or listen again on BBC iPlayer.
