Welcome to Beatles City, the podcast that brings you the story of the band that shook the world from the place where it all began. Join us on a journey along the sandstone-lined streets of John Lennon’s childhood Woolton, into the Kensington living room-turned-recording studio where the Quarrymen cut their first record and down the steep steps into the Cavern’s cellar nightclub. This podcast is brought to you by the Liverpool Echo. Hosts Ellen Kirwin and Laura Davis.
In this special bonus episode taken from his press conference, Ringo Starr shares the experience of making his new EP Zoom In during lockdown, reminisces about his Hamburg days and says playing with The Beatles was full of laughs
Today, we mark what should have been John Lennon's 80th birthday with a celebration of his life in the words of the people who knew him.
They include his sister Julia Baird, 'Fifth Beatle' Pete Best, the Liver Birds, art college friend Helen Anderson and Quarryman Rod Davis.
This week we hear from Cavern Club tour guide Dale Roberts, whose job it is to dispel some of the wacky stories surrounding the band.
He tells us the truth behind some of the myths and that famous conspiracy theory about Paul McCartney.
