(Radio.com) Simply Red's Mick Hucknall and rock group The Stereophonics are among the artists participating in a marathon recording session in an attempt to recreate The Beatles' debut album Please Please Me within 12 hours; that's how much time it took the Fab Four to record the album five decades ago.

The challenge will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 2 on Feb. 11 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the historic album's recording session. It will also be filmed for a BBC 4 special 12 Hours To Please Me airing on Feb. 15, according to BBC News. Hucknall, along with other musicians, will record in Abbey Road Studios where the original album was made, and have just the 12-hour time frame to record all of the songs.

BBC Radio 2 DJs Stuart Maconie and Jo Whiley will host the live events, which will also feature appearances by engineer Richard Langham, who worked on the original album, and Beatles press officer Tony Barrow. more on this story
