The reigning pop stars of the first half of 1963? The Beatmakers! Please Please me was mostly, but not unanimously number one in the UK, but such a question does not exist for "How Do You Do It". George Martin was correct, the tune from Mitch Murray and Brian's "next big thing", Gerry and the Pacemakers follows on the Beatles Liverpool success with a new chart-topper. Too much to say for one show, so the American charts for March 1963 will soon be available as a flip-side!
